1 " 'When you allot the land as an inheritance,1 you are to present to the LORD a portion of the land as a sacred district, 25,000 cubits long and 20,000a cubits wide; the entire area will be holy.2 2 Of this, a section 500 cubits square3 is to be for the sanctuary, with 50 cubits around it for open land. 3 In the sacred district, measure off a section 25,000 cubitsb long and 10,000 cubitsc wide. In it will be the sanctuary, the Most Holy Place. 4 It will be the sacred portion of the land for the priests,4 who minister in the sanctuary and who draw near to minister before the LORD. It will be a place for their houses as well as a holy place for the sanctuary.5 5 An area 25,000 cubits long and 10,000 cubits wide will belong to the Levites, who serve in the temple, as their possession for towns to live in.d6 6 " 'You are to give the city as its property an area "5,000 cubits wide and 25,000 cubits long, adjoining the sacred portion; it will belong to the whole house of Israel.7
