for the city
The holy oblation of Ezekiel 48:25 Ezekiel 48:000 ; square reeds, or near fifty square miles, was divided into three parts from north to south (see on ch. 45:1 ): a portion on the north of Ezekiel 45:10 Ezekiel 45:000 ; reeds in width, and Ezekiel 45:25 Ezekiel 45:000 ; in length, for the priests, in the midst of which was the sanctuary or temple, surrounded by a wall 500 ; reeds square, (ver
9, ; 10; see on ch. 42:15 ;) next to this another portion of the same dimensions for the Levites, (ver. 13, ; 14;) and on the south another portion of the same length,
but only Ezekiel 48:5 Ezekiel 48:000 ; reeds in breadth, for the city (ver 15.) The city was situated in the midst of this portion, being Ezekiel 48:4 Ezekiel 48:500 ; reeds, or about nine miles square, (see on ver. 30,) having a suburb of 250 ; reeds, or about half a mile, on each side, (ver. 17,) leaving Ezekiel 48:10 Ezekiel 48:000 ; reeds or nearly ten miles, on the east
side, and the same on the west side, for the profit of those who serve the city out of all the tribes, (ver 18, ; 19.) On the east and west sides of this square of Ezekiel 48:25 Ezekiel 48:000 ; reeds, is the portion of the prince; each of which, estimating the breadth of the land at 150 ; miles, would form a square of fifty miles. Thus the whole plan of the division of the country, laying out of the city, temple, and all its appendages, is perfectly regular and uniform; and would therefore convey to the minds of the Jews the most complete idea they were capable of conceiving of the most perfect church, commonwealth, city, temple, and conveniences, on the largest and grandest scale for the Divine worship; and it doubtless ultimately points out the land of Immanuel, the city of the New Jerusalem, and his temple, the Christian church, the house of the living God.
