Ezekiel 45:1
shall divide by lot: Heb. cause the land to fall by lot, Eze 47:21, Eze 48:29, Num 34:13, Jos 13:6, Jos 14:2, Psa 16:5, Psa 16:6 ye shall offer: Eze 45:2-7, Eze 48:8-23, Lev 25:23, Pro 3:9 an holy portion: Heb. holiness, Zec 14:20, Zec 14:21 the length: That our translators rightly added the word reeds, is evident from the length and breadth of the sanctuary being exactly the same as before - compare Eze 45:2, with Eze 42:16-19. Estimating the reed at 3+ yards, this holy oblation would constitute a square of nearly fifty miles on every side. From the north side a portion of nearly twenty miles in width, and nearly fifty in length, was appointed for the priests; and in the midst of this portion, the area of the sanctuary, about a mile square, to be enclosed by a wall - Eze 45:1, Eze 45:2. Next to this, on the south, was the Levites' portion, of the same dimensions as that of the priests' - Eze 45:5, and south of this was the portion for the city, of the same length as those of the priests and Levites, but only half the width - Eze 45:6. These three formed the square of 25,000 reeds, or nearly fifty miles; and that set apart for the prince, the breadth of which is not mentioned, extended in length from north to south, along the east and west sides of the square. As Canaan would not admit of so large a portion for the sanctuary, etc., this was no doubt intended to intimate the large extent of the church in the glorious times predicted. Reciprocal: Num 35:2 - General Jer 31:40 - shall be Eze 37:26 - set Eze 45:4 - holy portion Eze 48:4 - by the border Eze 48:15 - for the city
