1 "Moreover, when you a divide the land by lot into inheritance, you shall b set apart a district for the LORD, a holy section of the land; its length shall be twenty-five thousand cubits, and the width ten thousand. It shall be holy throughout its territory all around. 2 "Of this there shall be a square plot for the sanctuary, c five hundred by five hundred rods, with fifty cubits around it for an open space. 3 "So this is the district you shall measure: twenty-five thousand cubits long and ten thousand wide; d in it shall be the sanctuary, the Most Holy Place. 4 "It shall be e a holy section of the land, belonging to the priests, the ministers of the sanctuary, who come near to minister to the LORD; it shall be a place for their houses and a holy place for the sanctuary. 5 f "An area twenty-five thousand cubits long and ten thousand wide shall belong to the Levites, the ministers of the 1 temple; they shall have g twenty 2 chambers as a possession.
6 h "You shall appoint as the property of the city an area five thousand cubits wide and twenty-five thousand long, adjacent to the district of the holy section; it shall belong to the whole house of Israel.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
