Ezekiel 48

And these are the names of the tribes from the northern corner, on the side of the decent that draws a line to the entrance of Hamath the palace of Elam, the border of Damascus northward on the side of Hamath the palace; and they shall have the eastern parts as far as the sea, for Dan, one portion. And from the borders of Dan eastward as far as the west seacoast, for Asher, one. And from the borders of Asher, from the eastern parts as far as the west coasts, for Naphtali, one. And from the borders of Naphtali, from the east as far as the west coasts, for Manasseh, one. And from the borders of Manasseh, from the eastern parts as far as the west coasts, for Ephraim, one. And from the borders of Ephraim, from the eastern parts to the west coasts, for Reuben, one. And from the borders of Reuben, from the eastern parts as far as the west coasts, for Judah, one. And from the borders of Judah, from the eastern parts shall be the offering of firstfruits, in the breadth twenty-five thousand reeds, and in length as one of the portions measured from the east even to the western parts; and the sanctuary shall be in the midst of them. As for the firstfruits which they shall offer to the Lord, it shall be in length twenty-five thousand, and in breadth twenty-five thousand. 10 Out of this shall be the firstfruits of the holy things to the priests, northward twenty-five thousand, and toward the west, ten thousand, and southward twenty-five thousand. And the mountain of the sanctuary shall be in the midst of it, 11 for the priests, for the consecrated sons of Zadok, who keep the charges of the house, who erred not in the error of the children of Israel, as the Levites erred. 12 And the firstfruits shall be given to them out of the firstfruits of the land, even a most holy portion from the borders of the Levites. 13 And the Levites shall have the part next to the borders of the priests, in length twenty-five thousand, and in breadth ten thousand: the whole length shall be twenty-five thousand, and the breadth twenty thousand. 14 No part of it shall be sold, nor measured as for sale, neither shall the firstfruits of the land be taken away; for they are holy to the Lord. 15 But concerning the five thousand that remain in the breadth in the twenty-five thousand, they shall be a suburb to the city for dwelling, and for a space before it; and the city shall be in the midst thereof. 16 And these shall be its dimensions: from the northern side four thousand and five hundred, and from the southern side four thousand and five hundred, and from the eastern side four thousand and five hundred, and from the western side they shall measure four thousand five hundred. 17 And there shall be a space to the city northward two hundred and fifty, and southward two hundred and fifty, and eastward two hundred and fifty, and westward two hundred and fifty. 18 And the remainder of the length that is next to the firstfruits of the holy portion shall be ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand westward; and they shall be the firstfruits of the sanctuary; and the fruits thereof shall be for bread to them that labor for the city. 19 And they that labor for the city shall labor for it out of all the tribes of Israel. 20 The whole offering shall be a square of twenty-five thousand by twenty-five thousand: you shall separate again part of it, the firstfruits of the sanctuary, from the possession of the city. 21 And the prince shall have the remainder on this side and on that side from the firstfruits of the sanctuary, and there shall be a possession of the city, for twenty-five thousand cubits in length, to the eastern and western borders, for twenty-five thousand to the western borders, next to the portions of the prince; and the firstfruits of the holy things and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst of it. 22 And there shall be a portion taken from the Levites, from the possession of the city in the midst of the princes between the borders of Judah and the borders of Benjamin, and it shall be the portion of the princes. 23 And as for the rest of the tribes, from the eastern parts as far as the western, Benjamin shall have one portion. 24 And from the borders of Benjamin, from the eastern parts to the western, Simeon, one. 25 And from the borders of Simeon, from the eastern parts to the western, Issachar, one. 26 And from the borders of Issachar, from the eastern parts to the western, Zebulun, one. 27 And from the borders of Zebulun, from the east to the western parts, Gad, one. 28 And from the borders of Gad, from the eastern parts to the southwestern parts; his coasts shall even be from Tamar, and the water of Meribah Kadesh, for an inheritance, unto the Great Sea. 29 This is the land, which you shall divide by lot to the tribes of Israel, and these are their portions, says the Lord God. 30 And these are the goings out of the city northward, four thousand and five hundred by measure. 31 And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of Israel: three gates northward; the gate of Reuben, one, and the gate of Judah, one, and the gate of Levi, one. 32 And eastward four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; the gate of Joseph, one, and the gate of Benjamin, one, and the gate of Dan, one. 33 And southward, four thousand and five hundred by measure; and three gates: the gate of Simeon, one, and the gate of Issachar, one, and the gate of Zebulun, one. 34 And westward, four thousand and five hundred by measure; and three gates: the gate of Gad, one, and the gate of Asher, one, and the gate of Naphtali, one. 35 The circumference, eighteen thousand measures. And the name of the city, from the day that it shall be finished, shall be THE LORD IS THERE.
