1“Now these are the names of the tribes: Dan’s portion will be from the northern frontier, beside the way of Hethlon to the entrance of Hamath, Hazar-enan at the northern border of Damascus, beside Hamath, and from eastern side to the sea.
2Next to the territory of Dan, from the east side to the west will be Asher’s one,
3Next to the territory of Asher, from the east side to the west will be Naphtali’s one.
4Next to the territory of Naphtali, from the east side to the west, will be Manasseh’s one.
5Next to the territory of Manasseh, from the east side to the west will be Ephraim’s one.
6Next to the territory of Ephraim, from the east side to the west, will be Reuben’s one.
7Next to the territory of Reuben, from the east side to the west, will be Judah’s one.
8By Judah’s border, from the east side to the west, will be the contribution which you will set aside, 25,000 cubits in width and in length like one of the portions, from the east side to the west. The Sanctuary will be in the midst of it.
9The allotment that you will set apart to Adonai will be 25,000 in length and 10,000 in width.
10The holy allotment will be apportioned for these—for the kohanim. Toward the north it will be 25,000 cubits and toward the west 10,000 in width, toward the east 10,000 in width and toward the south 25,000 in length. Adonai’s Sanctuary will be in the midst of it.
11The sanctified portion will be for the kohanim of the sons of Zadok, who kept My charge and did not go astray as the Levites went astray when Bnei-Yisrael went astray.
12It will be for them a portion set apart from the offering of the land, most holy, by the border of the Levites.
13Alongside the border of the kohanim, the Levites will have 25,000 in length and 10,000 in width. The entire length will be 25,000 and the width 10,000.
14They must not sell or exchange any of it or transfer the choice portion of the land, for it is holy to Adonai.
15The 5,000 that remain in the width, in front of the 25,000 thousand, will be for common use, for the city, for living and for pastureland. “The city will be in the midst of it,
16and will have these measurements: the north side; 4,500; the south side 4,500; the east side, 4,500; and the west side, 4,500.
17The city will have open land: toward the north 250, toward the south 250, toward the east 250, and toward the west 250.
18The remainder of the length, according to the holy allotment, will be 10,000 eastward and 10,000 westward. It will be alongside the holy allotment. Its produce will be food for those who serve the city.
19Those who serve the city, out of all the tribes of Israel, will till it.
20The whole allotment will be 25,o00 by 25,o00, square; you will set apart the holy allotment with the property of the city.
21“What is remaining from this side and on the other of the holy allotment and the city property will be for the prince. What is adjacent to the 25,000 of the allotment toward the eastern border, and westward adjacent to the 25,000 toward the western border, alongside the portions, will be for the prince. The holy allotment and the Sanctuary of the House will be in the midst of it.
22The property of the Levites and the property of the city will be in the middle of what belongs to the prince; what belongs to the prince will be between Judah’s border and Benjamin’s border.
23As for the rest of the tribes: from the east side to the west, will be Benjamin’s one.
24Next to the territory of Benjamin, from the east side to the west, will be Simeon’s one.
25Next to the territory of Simeon, from the east side to the west, will be Issachar’s one.
26Next to the territory of Issachar, from the east side to the west, will be Zebulon’s one.
27Next to the territory of Zebulun, from the east side to the west, will be Gad’s one.
28Next to the territory of Gad, at the south side southward, the border will be from Tamar to the waters of Meribath-kadesh, to the Wadi, to the Great Sea.
29This is the land that you will divide by lot to the tribes of Israel as an inheritance, and these are their portions.” It is a declaration of Adonai.
30“These are the exits of the city: on the north side, 4,500 by measure,
31will be the gates of the city named after of the tribes of Israel—three gates northward—the Reuben Gate, one; the Judah Gate, one; the Levi Gate, one.
32At the east side, 4,500, will be three gates: the Joseph Gate, one; the Benjamin Gate, one; Dan Gate, one.
33At the south side, 4,500 by measure, will be three gates: the Simeon Gate, one; the Issachar Gate, one; the Zebulun Gate, one.
34At the west side, 4,500, with their three gates: the Gad Gate, one; the Asher Gate, one; the Naphtali Gate, one.
35It will be 18,000 cubits all around. “From that day on, the name of the city will be: ‘Adonai Is There.’”
