Then he said to me, “Son of man, now dig through the wall,” and when I had dug through the wall, behold, a doorway. Bible

“when I had dug through the wall, behold, a doorway.” Exactly what is happening here is unknown, in part because we do not know the exact location where the hole in the wall was, and in part because we do not know the exact construction of the Temple at this time. The Temple had storerooms between the Holy Place and Holy of Holies and the wall to the courtyard, so it is likely that Ezekiel dug into a wall that gave him entrance to a storage room on the outer wall of the Temple proper, and the room had been converted into a pagan cult center.
