1 And these are the names of the tribes from the borders of the north, by the way of Hethalon, as they go to Emath, the court of Enan the border of Damascus northward, by the way off Emath. And from the east side thereof to the sea shall be one portion for Dan. 1 "These are the tribes, listed by name: At the northern frontier, Dan will have one portion; it will follow the Hethlon road to Lebo Hamath; Hazar Enan and the northern border of Damascus next to Hamath will be part of its border from the east side to the west side.
2 And by the border of Dan, from the east side even to the side of the sea, one portion for Aser: 2 "Asher will have one portion; it will border the territory of Dan from east to west.
3 And by the border of Aser, from the east side even to the side of the sea one portion for Nephthali. 3 "Naphtali will have one portion; it will border the territory of Asher from east to west.
4 And by the border of Nephthali, from the east side even to the side of the one portion for Manasses. 4 "Manasseh will have one portion; it will border the territory of Naphtali from east to west.
5 And by the border of Manasses, from the east side even to the side of the sea, one portion for Ephraim. 5 "Ephraim will have one portion; it will border the territory of Manasseh from east to west.
6 And by the border of Ephraim, from the east side even to the side of the sea, one portion for Ruben. 6 "Reuben will have one portion; it will border the territory of Ephraim from east to west.
7 And by the border of Ruben, from the east side even to the side of the sea, one portion for Juda. 7 "Judah will have one portion; it will border the territory of Reuben from east to west.
8 And by the border of Juda, from the east side even to the side of the sea, shall be the firstfruits which you shall set apart, five and twenty thousand in breadth, and length, as every one of the portions from the east side to the side of the sea: and the sanctuary shall be in the midst thereof. 8 "Bordering the territory of Judah from east to west will be the portion you are to present as a special gift. 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 firstfruits which you shall set apart for the Lord will be the length of five and twenty thousand, and the breadth of ten thousand. 9 "The special portion you are to offer to the LORD will be 25,000 cubits long and 10,000 cubits wide.
10 And these shall be the firstfruits of the sanctuary for the priests: toward the north five and twenty thousand in length, and toward the sea ten thousand in breadth, and toward the east also ten thousand in breadth, and toward the south five and twenty thousand in length: and the sanctuary of the Lord shall be in the midst thereof. 10 This will be the sacred portion for the priests. It will be 25,000 cubits long on the north side, 10,000 cubits wide on the west side, 10,000 cubits wide on the east side and 25,000 cubits long on the south side. In the center of it will be the sanctuary of the LORD.
11 The sanctuary shall be for the priests of the sons of Sadoc, who kept my ceremonies, and went not astray when the children of Israel went astray, as the Levites also 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 for them shall be the firstfruits of the firstfruits of the land holy of holies, by the border 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 in like manner shall have by the borders of the priests five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in breadth. All the length shall be five and twenty thousand, and the breadth ten thousand. 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 thereof, nor exchange, neither shall the firstfruits of the land be alienated, because they are sanctified to the Lord. 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 But the five thousand that remain in the breadth over against the five and twenty thousand, shall be a profane place for the city for dwelling, and for suburbs and the city shall be in the midst thereof. 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 are the measures thereof: on the north side four thousand and five hundred: and on the south side four thousand and five hundred: and on the east side four thousand and five hundred: and on the west side four thousand and five hundred. 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 the suburbs of the city shall be to the north two hundred and fifty, and the south two hundred and fifty, and to the east two hundred and fifty, and to the sea two hundred and fifty. 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 residue in length by the firstfruits of the sanctuary, ten thousand toward the east, and ten thousand toward the west, shall be as the firstfruits of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for bread to them that serve 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 they that serve the city, shall serve it out of all the tribes of Israel. 19 The workers from the city who farm it will come from all the tribes of Israel.
20 All the firstfruits, of five and twenty thousand, by five and twenty thousand foursquare, shall be set apart for the firstfruits of the sanctuary, and for the possession 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 residue shall be for the prince on every side of the firstfruits of the sanctuary, and of the possession of the city over against the five and twenty thousand of the firstfruits unto the east border: toward the sea also over against the five and twenty thousand, unto the border of the sea, shall likewise be the portion of the prince: and the firstfruits of the sanctuary, and the sanctuary of the temple shall be in the midst thereof. 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 from the possession of the Levites, and from the possession of the city which are in the midst of the prince’s portions: what shall be to the border of Juda, and to the border of Benjamin, shall also belong to 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 rest of the tribes: from the east side to the west side, one portion for Benjamin. 23 "As for the rest of the tribes: Benjamin will have one portion; it will extend from the east side to the west side.
24 And over against the border of Benjamin, from the east side to the west side, one portion for Simeon. 24 "Simeon will have one portion; it will border the territory of Benjamin from east to west.
25 And by the border of Simeon, from the east side to the west side, one portion for Issachar. 25 "Issachar will have one portion; it will border the territory of Simeon from east to west.
26 And by the border of Issachar, from the east side to the west side, one portion for Zabulon. 26 "Zebulun will have one portion; it will border the territory of Issachar from east to west.
27 And by the border of Zabulon, from the east side to the side of the sea, one portion for Gad. 27 "Gad will have one portion; it will border the territory of Zebulun from east to west.
28 And by the border of Gad, the south side southward: and the border shall be from Thamar, even to the waters of contradiction of Cades, the inheritance over against the great sea. 28 "The southern boundary of Gad will run south from Tamar to the waters of Meribah Kadesh, then along the Wadi [of Egypt] to the Great Sea.
29 This is the land which you shall divide by lot to the tribes of Israel: and these are the portions of them, saith the Lord God. 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 are the goings out of the city: on the north side thou shalt measure four thousand and five hundred. 30 "These will be the exits of the city: Beginning on the north side, which is 4,500 cubits long,
31 And the gates of the city according to the name, of the tribes of Israel, three gates on the north side, the gate of Ruben one, the gate of Juda one, the gate of Levi one. 31 the gates of the city will be named after the tribes of Israel. The three gates on the north side will be the gate of Reuben, the gate of Judah and the gate of Levi.
32 And at the east side, four thousand and five hundred: and three gates, the gate of Joseph one, the gate of Benjamin one, the gate of Dan one. 32 "On the east side, which is 4,500 cubits long, will be three gates: the gate of Joseph, the gate of Benjamin and the gate of Dan.
33 And at the south side, thou shalt measure four thousand and five hundred and three gates, the gate of Simeon one, the gate of Issachar one, the gate of Zabulon one. 33 "On the south side, which measures 4,500 cubits, will be three gates: the gate of Simeon, the gate of Issachar and the gate of Zebulun.
34 And at the west side, four thousand and five hundred, and their three gates, the gate of Gad one, the gate of Aser one, the gate of Nephthali one. 34 "On the west side, which is 4,500 cubits long, will be three gates: the gate of Gad, the gate of Asher and the gate of Naphtali.
35 Its circumference was eighteen thousand: and the name of the city from that day, The Lord is there. 35 "The distance all around will be 18,000 cubits. "And the name of the city from that time on will be: THE LORD IS THERE."
