In this chapter we have particular directions
given for the distribution of the land, of which we had the metes
and bounds assigned in the foregoing chapter. I. The portions of
the twelve tribes, seven to the north of the sanctuary (ver. 1-7) and five to the south,
ver. 23-29. II. The
allotment of land for the sanctuary, and the priests (ver. 8-11), for the Levites
(ver. 12-14), for the
city (ver. 15-20), and
for the prince, ver. 21,
22. Much of this we had before, ch. xlv. III. A plan of the city,
its gates, and the new name given to it (ver. 30-35), which seals up, and
concludes, the vision and prophecy of this book.
