Ezekiel 45:1 Parallel
CommentaryEzekiel 45:1 Parallel Commentaries
Then Moses told the Israelites, "This territory is the homeland you are to divide among yourselves by sacred lot. The LORD has commanded that the land be divided among the nine and a half remaining tribes.
Include all this territory as Israel's possession when you divide this land among the nine tribes and the half-tribe of Manasseh."
Moses had already given a grant of land to the two and a half tribes on the east side of the Jordan River, but he had given the Levites no such allotment.
He measured the east side with his measuring rod, and it was 875 feet long.
A section of this land, measuring 875 feet by 875 feet, will be set aside for the Temple. An additional strip of land 87-1/2 feet wide is to be left empty all around it.
"Divide the land within these boundaries among the tribes of Israel.
"South of Judah is the land set aside for a special purpose. It will be 8-1/3 miles wide and will extend as far east and west as the tribal territories, with the Temple at the center.
