26 unto the west side, Issachar one. And by the border of

Issachar, from the east side unto the west side, Zebulon 27

And by the border of Zebulon, from the east side 28 unto the west side, Gad one. And by the border of Gad,

at the south side southward, the border shall be even from

Tamar to the waters of strife in Kadesh, as far as the 29 river by the great sea. This is the land which ye shall

cause to fall for an inheritance unto the tribes of Israel;

and these are their portions, saith the Lord Jehovah. 30 And these are the goings out of the city: on the north

side shall be four thousand five hundred cubits by measure : 31 and the gates of the city shall be after the names of the

tribes of Israel, three gates northward; one gate of 32 Reuben, one gate of Judah, one gate of Levi. And on

the east side shall be four thousand and five hundred : and three gates; one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin,

25. -Issachar.-This tribe was anciently placed between Zebulon to the north and the half tribe of Manasseh to the south; and was divided from the tribe of Simeon, not only by the half tribe of Manasseh, but by the tribes of Ephraim Dan and Benjamin. 28.

- from Tamar.-See on c. xlvii. 19. 29. --for an inheritance.-07303), 1 MS. as c. xlv. 1. xlvii. 22. Chald. prefixes.

“Since there is no doubt but that other things which are said in these chapters relating to the temple and the land of Israel are of a prophetical nature, it seems safer to determine that the above-mentioned measures were observed both in building the temple and in assigning the lots to the tribes; though we know not how these things were done, because there is a great chasm in the sacred history from the time of Ezra to that of the Maccabees." Houbigant.

These portions may have been given to some of the twelve tribes, as they returned : and may hereafter be given to such as return when the Jewish people shall be restored to their own land, and who know their tribe either by tradition or by the instruction of inspired prophets.

32. one gate of Joseph.70w for 701, 7 MSS. all the ancients. There being a gate named after Levi, the gate of Joseph includes Ephraim and Manasseh the sons of Joseph.

one gate of Dan. And on the south side shall be four thousand and five hundred by measure : and three gates ;

one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one gate of 34 Zebulon. And on the west side four thousand and five

hundred: and their gates three; one gate of Gad, one 35 gate of Asher, one gate of Naphtali. It shall be round

about eighteen thousand cubits : and the name of the city from that day shall be, JEHOVAH is THERE.

34. And on the west side.-08.14 MSS. and 5 originally: all the ancients.

and their gates three.-070w, 1 MS. ó. MS. Al. ed. Breit. Ar. Syr. and three gates, as in the preceding verses.

, gates, Vulg. But Chald. as Hebr.

35. -eighteen thousand.-A square, each side of which was four thousand five hundred. It must be observed that the square is considered throughout these descriptions as a perfect figure. See also Rev. xxi. 16.

-from that day.-Houbigant thinks that sing was omitted from its similitude to 711', which follows. See Arab. Vulg.

JEHOVAH IS THERE.-Jehovah occasionally protected Jerusalem; he filled it with glory by his visible Representative the Messiah ; and he will gloriously manifest himself in this city at its restoration.
