Eze 48:8-19; Eze 48:17,18,20,35

NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate the somewhat parenthetical nature of the description of the city.

tn Or “the city lies square.” On κεῖμαι (keimai) in this context, BDAG 537 s.v. 2 states, “lie, of things…ἡ πόλις τετράγωνος κεῖται is laid out as a square Rv 21:16.”

tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

tn Grk “with the rod”; the word “measuring” is supplied from the description in v. 15.

tn Or “two thousand two hundred kilometers,” Grk “12,000 stades.” A stade was a measure of length about 607 ft (185 m).
