Ezekiel 48:22

Ezekiel 48:22

Moreover, from the possession of the Levites, and from the
possession of the city
Or, "beyond" these, as it may be rendered, on the other side of them; or, "except" F26 these: being in the midst of that which is the prince's;
between his two portions; or, as it is next explained, between the border of Judah, and the border of Benjamin, shall be for
the prince;
that is, all beyond and excepting that which belonged to the priests and Levites, the sanctuary and the city, were the prince's, which lay between Judah and Benjamin: or thus it was; before the holy oblation one part of the prince's portion ran, parallel with the tribe of Judah, east and west; after the holy oblation on the other side, another part of his portion touched the tribe of Benjamin, and ran parallel with the east and west: and so were between them both, as well as on each side of the holy oblation: all this denotes the nearness of Christ to his church and people; his protection of them on all sides; and the largeness of his interest and kingdom; see ( Ezekiel 45:7 ) .
