1 Now these are the names of the tribes. From the side of the north by the way of Hethlon, as one goes to Hamath, Hazarenan, to the border of Damascus northward, to the coast of Hamath; Dan shall have a portion, his sides being to the east and to the west.

9 The lot that ye shall separate unto the LORD shall be of twenty-five thousand in length, and of ten thousand in breadth.
10 And from there shall be the holy lot of the priests; toward the north twenty-five thousand reeds in length, and toward the west ten thousand in breadth, and toward the east ten thousand in breadth, and toward the south twenty-five thousand in length: and the sanctuary of the LORD shall be in the midst thereof.
11 The priests that are sanctified of the sons of Zadok, which have kept my charge, which did not go astray when the sons of Israel went astray, as the Levites went astray.
12 They shall receive by lot, separated in the dividing of the land, the most holy part, next to the border of the Levites.
13 And the portion of the Levites, shall be in front the border of the priests, of twenty-five thousand reeds in length, and of ten thousand in breadth; all the length shall be twenty-five thousand, and the breadth ten thousand.
14 They shall not sell of it, neither exchange nor transpose the firstfruits of the land; for it is consecrated unto the LORD.
15 And the five thousand reeds, that are left in the breadth over against the twenty-five thousand, shall be profane, for the city, for dwelling, and for suburbs: and the city shall be in the midst thereof.
16 And these shall be the measures thereof: the north side four thousand five hundred reeds, and the south side four thousand five hundred, and on the east side four thousand five hundred, and the west side four thousand five hundred.
17 And the suburbs of the city shall be toward the north two hundred and fifty reeds, and toward the west two hundred and fifty.
18 And the residue in length over against the lot of the holy portion shall be ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand westward: which shall be what is left of the lot of the holy portion; it shall be for food unto those that serve the city.
19 And those that serve the city shall be from all the tribes of Israel.
20 All the lot of twenty-five thousand by twenty-five thousand square: ye shall separate by lot for the sanctuary and for the possession of the city.
21 And the residue shall be for the prince, on the one side and on the other of the holy lot, and of the possession of the city, over against the twenty-five thousand reeds of the holy lot unto the east border, and westward over against the twenty-five thousand unto the west border, over against the said portions shall be of the prince; and it shall be a holy lot; and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst thereof.
22 Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the possession of the city, in the midst shall be that which belongs to the prince, between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin, shall be the lot of the prince.

30 And these are the goings out of the city on the north side, four thousand five hundred reeds by measure.
31 And the gates of the city shall be according to the names of the tribes of Israel: three gates northward; the gate of Reuben, one; the gate of Judah, another; the gate of Levi, another.
