\\INTRODUCTION TO EZEKIEL 45\\

This chapter treats of the division of the land in future time, and the
persons and uses for which it is to be made; one part being for the
sanctuary, and the priests that serve in it, and for their houses for
them to dwell in, \\#Eze 45:1-4\\, another for the Levites and their
chambers, \\#Eze 45:5\\, and another for the city, for the Israelites
in common, \\#Eze 45:6\\, and the last for the prince; and of the
situation and extent of it, \\#Eze 45:7,8\\ and of the righteous
administration of civil government in the time of the spiritual reign
of Christ, in abstinence from violence and exactions, and doing
justice, for which orders and directions are given, \\#Eze 45:9-12\\,
then of the oblations of the people of the land, \\#Eze 45:13-16\\,
and next of those that are to be prepared by the prince, \\#Eze 45:17\\,
and the times of the offering of them, at the beginning of the year, on
the feasts of the passover and tabernacles, \\#Eze 45:18-25\\, the rules
for which are so different from the Mosaic law, as show the abrogation
of that; and that all this is to be understood in a spiritual and
evangelic sense.
