And by the border of Judah, from the east side unto the west
side, shall be the offering
Or the oblation of a holy portion of the land unto the Lord before made mention of, ( Ezekiel 45:1 ) this was close by the tribe of Judah, and in the same direction with that and the rest of the tribes, proceeding in length from east to west: this takes in the whole allotted to the sanctuary, the priests, the Levites, the city, and the prince; each of which are taken notice of in the following verses: which they shall offer of five and twenty thousand reeds in breadth;
from north to south; which makes, as the Jews F21 say, seventy five miles; some make it seventy seven, and others more: and in length as one of the other parts, from the east side unto the
that is, equal to one of the portions allotted to anyone of the tribes, which were alike: what this measure was is not said, but was the same with the breadth; since the whole oblation was five and twenty thousand by five and twenty thousand, ( Ezekiel 48:20 ) : and the sanctuary shall be in the midst thereof;
of the holy portion of land; see ( Ezekiel 45:3 ) , not in the tribe of Judah or Benjamin; nor in the city of Jerusalem, as before; but many miles from thence.
