Note: The 10 and 5 cubit measurements tell us that the author is writing of the Solomonic Temple Porch.

The 40 and 20 cubit measurements tell us that the Priest's Sanctuary ratio of 2:1 is being recorded.

These measurements are double their standard Solomonic 20:10 size so as to relate the new position of the Most Holy Place to its original site, on the Rock.

By measurement and by ratio, the different positions of the original and new Most Holy Place are directly related.
