"These will be the exits to the city: On the north wall, which is 1 1/2 miles long,
there will be three gates, each one named after a tribe of Israel. The first will be named for Reuben, the second for Judah, and the third for Levi.
On the east wall, also 1 1/2 miles long, the gates will be named for Joseph, Benjamin, and Dan.
The south wall, also 1 1/2 miles long, will have gates named for Simeon, Issachar, and Zebulun.
And on the west wall, also 1 1/2 miles long, the gates will be named for Gad, Asher, and Naphtali.
"The distance around the entire city will be six miles. a And from that day the name of the city will be 'The LORD Is There.' b "
