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.
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].
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.
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}.

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.
19 And the workers of the city from all the tribes of Israel shall cultivate it.
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.

30 And these [shall be] the exits of the city: From {the north side}, four thousand and five hundred [cubits] [by] measurement.
31 And the gates of the city [shall be] according to the names of the tribes of Israel: three gates [to the] north, the gate of Reuben, one; the gate of Judah, one; the gate of Levi, one.
