Ezekiel 48:8-14

Context

48:8 “Next to the border of Judah from the east side to the west will be the allotment you must set apart. It is to be eight and a quarter miles 1  wide, and the same length as one of the tribal portions, from the east side to the west; the sanctuary will be in the middle of it. 48:9 The allotment you set apart to the Lord will be eight and a quarter miles 2  in length and three and one-third miles 3  in width. 48:10 These will be the allotments for the holy portion: for the priests, toward the north eight and a quarter miles 4  in length, toward the west three and one-third miles 5  in width, toward the east three and one-third miles 6  in width, and toward the south eight and a quarter miles 7  in length; the sanctuary of the Lord will be in the middle. 48:11 This will be for the priests who are set apart from the descendants of Zadok who kept my charge and did not go astray when the people of Israel strayed off, like the Levites did. 8  48:12 It will be their portion from the allotment of the land, a most holy place, next to the border of the Levites.

48:13 “Alongside the border of the priests, the Levites will have an allotment eight and a quarter miles 9  in length and three and one-third miles 10  in width. The whole length will be eight and a quarter miles 11  and the width three and one-third miles. 12  48:14 They must not sell or exchange any of it; they must not transfer this choice portion of land, for it is set apart 13  to the Lord.
