2 And next to the territory of Dan, from {the eastern border} up to {the western border}, one [portion] [for] Asher. 2 "Asher will have one portion; it will border the territory of Dan from east to west.

It will be 25,000 cubits wide, and its length from east to west will equal one of the tribal portions; the sanctuary will be in the center of it.
9 The contribution that you shall set apart for Yahweh, its length [shall be] twenty-five thousand [cubits], and its width ten thousand [cubits]. 9 "The special portion you are to offer to the LORD will be 25,000 cubits long and 10,000 cubits wide.

11 To the priests, the [ones] being consecrated from the descendants of Zadok, who took care of my service [and] who {did not go astray} {when the Israelites went astray}, {just as} the Levites went astray. 11 This will be for the consecrated priests, the Zadokites, who were faithful in serving me and did not go astray as the Levites did when the Israelites went astray.
12 And it will be for them a special gift from the contribution of the land {as a most holy object} next to the territory of the Levites. 12 It will be a special gift to them from the sacred portion of the land, a most holy portion, bordering the territory of the Levites.
13 And the Levites {alongside} the territory of the priests [shall have] twenty-five thousand [cubits] [in] length and in width ten thousand [cubits], its {full length}, twenty-five thousand [cubits] and its [full width], ten thousand [cubits]. 13 "Alongside the territory of the priests, the Levites will have an allotment 25,000 cubits long and 10,000 cubits wide. Its total length will be 25,000 cubits and its width 10,000 cubits.
14 And they shall not sell [any part] from it, and shall not exchange, and shall not transfer the best of the land, for [it is] holy to Yahweh. 14 They must not sell or exchange any of it. This is the best of the land and must not pass into other hands, because it is holy to the LORD.
15 And {the remaining part} of five thousand [cubits] in the width {by} twenty-five thousand [cubits], [is] unholy; it is for the city as dwelling and as pastureland; and the city will be [located] {in the middle of it}. 15 "The remaining area, 5,000 cubits wide and 25,000 cubits long, will be for the common use of the city, for houses and for pastureland. The city will be in the center of it
16 And these [shall be] its measurements: [on] its side to [the] north, four thousand five hundred [cubits]; and [on] its side to [the] south, four thousand five hundred [cubits]; and [on] {the eastern side}, four thousand five hundred [cubits]; and [on] {the western side}, four thousand five hundred [cubits]. 16 and will have these measurements: the north side 4,500 cubits, the south side 4,500 cubits, the east side 4,500 cubits, and the west side 4,500 cubits.
17 And a pastureland shall be for the city northwards, two hundred and fifty [cubits], southwards two hundred and fifty [cubits], and eastwards two hundred and fifty [cubits], and westwards two hundred and fifty [cubits]. 17 The pastureland for the city will be 250 cubits on the north, 250 cubits on the south, 250 cubits on the east, and 250 cubits on the west.
18 And the rest in [its] length {alongside} {the holy district}, ten thousand [cubits] eastwards and ten thousand westwards; and it shall be {alongside} {the holy district} and its yield shall be as food for the workers of the city. 18 What remains of the area, bordering on the sacred portion and running the length of it, will be 10,000 cubits on the east side and 10,000 cubits on the west side. Its produce will supply food for the workers of the city.
19 And the workers of the city from all the tribes of Israel shall cultivate it. 19 The workers from the city who farm it will come from all the tribes of Israel.
20 All of the contribution, twenty-five thousand by twenty five thousand [cubits] square, you shall set apart [as] {the holy district} [along] with the property of the city. 20 The entire portion will be a square, 25,000 cubits on each side. As a special gift you will set aside the sacred portion, along with the property of the city.
21 And the rest [shall be] to the prince, {on both sides} {of the holy district} and of the property of the city {extending from} twenty-five thousand [cubits] [of the] contribution up to [the] boundary of [the] east, and westwards {extending} twenty-five thousand [cubits] to the boundary of [the] sea {alongside} [the] [tribal] portions. They shall be for the prince, and it shall be {the holy district}, and the sanctuary of the temple will be in its middle. 21 "What remains on both sides of the area formed by the sacred portion and the city property will belong to the prince. It will extend eastward from the 25,000 cubits of the sacred portion to the eastern border, and westward from the 25,000 cubits to the western border. Both these areas running the length of the tribal portions will belong to the prince, and the sacred portion with the temple sanctuary will be in the center of them.
22 And [also] the property of the Levites and the property of the city will be in the midst of [the property] which [is] for the prince; between the territory of Judah and [between] the territory of Benjamin [the land] will be for the prince. 22 So the property of the Levites and the property of the city will lie in the center of the area that belongs to the prince. The area belonging to the prince will lie between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin.
23 And [for] the remainder of the tribes: From [the] side [on] [the] east up to [the] side [on] [the] west, Benjamin one [portion]; 23 "As for the rest of the tribes: Benjamin will have one portion; it will extend from the east side to the west side.

29 This [is] the land that you shall allot as [an] inheritance to the tribes of Israel, and these [are] their portions," {declares} the Lord Yahweh. 29 "This is the land you are to allot as an inheritance to the tribes of Israel, and these will be their portions," declares the Sovereign LORD.
30 And these [shall be] the exits of the city: From {the north side}, four thousand and five hundred [cubits] [by] measurement. 30 "These will be the exits of the city: Beginning on the north side, which is 4,500 cubits long,
