"And when you divide by lot the land for inheritance, you shall offer an allotment to the LORD, a holy portion of the land; the length shall be the length of 25,000 [cubits], and the width shall be 20,000. It shall be holy within all its boundary round about.
"Out of this there shall be for the holy place a square round about five hundred by five hundred [cubits], and fifty cubits for its open space round about.
"From this area you shall measure a length of 25,000 [cubits] and a width of 10,000 [cubits]; and in it shall be the sanctuary, the most holy place.
"It shall be the holy portion of the land; it shall be for the priests, the ministers of the sanctuary, who come near to minister to the LORD, and it shall be a place for their houses and a holy place for the sanctuary.
"[An area] 25,000 [cubits] in length and 10,000 in width shall be for the Levites, the ministers of the house, [and] for their possession cities to dwell in.
"You shall give the city possession of [an area] 5,000 [cubits] wide and 25,000 [cubits] long, alongside the allotment of the holy portion; it shall be for the whole house of Israel.
