New Defender's Study Bible Notes

40:5 six cubits. A standard cubit was about eighteen inches in length, and a hand breadth about three inches, making a “long cubit” of about twenty-one inches. The measuring rod was six long cubits, or about 10.5 feet in length. This will be the height and width of the wall surrounding this future temple.
