Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:1 - “Here is the list of the tribes of Israel and the territory each is to receive. The territory of Dan is in the extreme north. Its boundary line follows the Hethlon road to Lebo-hamath and then runs on to Hazar-enan on the border of Damascus, with Hamath to the north. Dan’s territory extends all the way across the land of Israel from east to west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:2 - “Asher’s territory lies south of Dan’s and also extends from east to west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:3 - Naphtali’s land lies south of Asher’s, also extending from east to west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:4 - Then comes Manasseh south of Naphtali, and its territory also extends from east to west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:5 - South of Manasseh is Ephraim,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:6 - and then Reuben,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:7 - and then Judah, all of whose boundaries extend from east to west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:8 - “South of Judah is the land set aside for a special purpose. It will be 8⅓ miles[fn] wide and will extend as far east and west as the tribal territories, with the Temple at the center.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:9 - “The area set aside for the LORD’s Temple will be 8⅓ miles long and 6⅔ miles wide.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:10 - For the priests there will be a strip of land measuring 8⅓ miles long by 3⅓ miles wide,[fn] with the LORD’s Temple at the center.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:11 - This area is set aside for the ordained priests, the descendants of Zadok who served me faithfully and did not go astray with the people of Israel and the rest of the Levites.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:12 - It will be their special portion when the land is distributed, the most sacred land of all. Next to the priests’ territory will lie the land where the other Levites will live.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:13 - “The land allotted to the Levites will be the same size and shape as that belonging to the priests—8⅓ miles long and 3⅓ miles wide. Together these portions of land will measure 8⅓ miles long by 6⅔ miles wide.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:14 - None of this special land may ever be sold or traded or used by others, for it belongs to the LORD; it is set apart as holy.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:15 - “An additional strip of land 8⅓ miles long by 1⅔ miles wide,[fn] south of the sacred Temple area, will be allotted for public use—homes, pasturelands, and common lands, with a city at the center.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:16 - The city will measure 1½ miles[fn] on each side—north, south, east, and west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:17 - Open lands will surround the city for 150 yards[fn] in every direction.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:18 - Outside the city there will be a farming area that stretches 3⅓ miles to the east and 3⅓ miles to the west[fn] along the border of the sacred area. This farmland will produce food for the people working in the city.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:19 - Those who come from the various tribes to work in the city may farm it.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:20 - This entire area—including the sacred lands and the city—is a square that measures 8⅓ miles[fn] on each side.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:21 - “The areas that remain, to the east and to the west of the sacred lands and the city, will belong to the prince. Each of these areas will be 8⅓ miles wide, extending in opposite directions to the eastern and western borders of Israel, with the sacred lands and the sanctuary of the Temple in the center.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:22 - So the prince’s land will include everything between the territories allotted to Judah and Benjamin, except for the areas set aside for the sacred lands and the city.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:23 - “These are the territories allotted to the rest of the tribes. Benjamin’s territory lies just south of the prince’s lands, and it extends across the entire land of Israel from east to west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:24 - South of Benjamin’s territory lies that of Simeon, also extending across the land from east to west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:25 - Next is the territory of Issachar with the same eastern and western boundaries.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:26 - “Then comes the territory of Zebulun, which also extends across the land from east to west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:27 - The territory of Gad is just south of Zebulun with the same borders to the east and west.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:28 - The southern border of Gad runs from Tamar to the waters of Meribah at Kadesh[fn] and then follows the Brook of Egypt to the Mediterranean.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:29 - “These are the allotments that will be set aside for each tribe’s exclusive possession. I, the Sovereign LORD, have spoken!

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:30 - “These will be the exits to the city: On the north wall, which is 1½ miles long,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:31 - there will be three gates, each one named after a tribe of Israel. The first will be named for Reuben, the second for Judah, and the third for Levi.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:32 - On the east wall, also 1½ miles long, the gates will be named for Joseph, Benjamin, and Dan.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:33 - The south wall, also 1½ miles long, will have gates named for Simeon, Issachar, and Zebulun.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:34 - And on the west wall, also 1½ miles long, the gates will be named for Gad, Asher, and Naphtali.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 48:35 - “The distance around the entire city will be 6 miles.[fn] And from that day the name of the city will be ‘The LORD Is There.’[fn]
