Ezekiel 45:1-7International Standard Version (ISV)
Israel’s Future Temple Park
45 “When you divide the land for an inheritance, you are to present a Terumah[a] to the Lord, a consecrated portion of the land 25,000 cubits[b] long and 20,000[c] cubits[d] wide. Everything within this area is to be treated as holy. 2 A Holy Place is to be dedicated from this area in the form of a square measuring 500 by 500 cubits,[e] with a 50 cubit[f] buffer zone[g] surrounding it. 3 From this area a measure is to be made 25,000 cubits[h] long and 10,000 cubits[i] wide, which is to contain the sanctuary, the holiest of holy objects. 4 It is to be a holy portion of the land, set aside[j] for the priests who serve the sanctuary, who approach the Lord to serve him. It is to be a place for their houses, as well as the Holy Place of the sanctuary. 5 An area 25,000 cubits[k] long by 10,000 cubits wide is to be set aside[l] for use by the Levite[m] servants of the Temple, 20 parcels[n] for their residential properties. 6 The land allocation for the city is to be set at 5,000 cubits[o] wide and 25,000 cubits[p] long, adjacent to the sanctuary district, reserved for the entire house of Israel.”
The Portion for the Regent Prince
7 “The Regent Prince is to have a portion[q] on both sides of the consecrated allotment for the sanctuary and the city’s land allotment, adjacent to both on the west[r] and the east sides, comparable in length to one of the portions from the west[s] border to the east border.
