(7) For the prince.--The portion here assigned to the prince included all the land between the northern and southern bounding lines of the "oblation" continued to the Jordan on the east, and the Mediterranean on the west, not already included within the "oblation" itself. Two pieces of land are thus given to him, separated from each other by the whole width (47? miles) of the "oblation." (See the map under Ezekiel 48)

From the west side westward.--The prince's position is to adjoin the "oblation" in its entire width of 25,000 reeds, stretching westward from its western side, and eastward from its eastern side.

The length.--Throughout the measurements of the land, length is from east to west; breadth from north to south. The east and west measurement of the prince's portion was to be "over against "--i.e., parallel to--one of the portions of the tribes.

Verse 7. - And a portion shall be (or, ye shall appoint) for the prince. As to situation, his portion should lie on both sides of the holy portion (or portions, i.e. of the priests and of the Levites; see Ezekiel 48:20-22), and of the possession, or portion, of the city; should stretch exactly in front or alongside of these, i.e. from north to south; and should extend on the one side westward (to the Mediterranean), and on the other side eastward (to the Jordan). The concluding clause, And the length shall be over against (לְעֻמות, a plural form, occurring only here) one of the portions, from the west border unto the east border, though somewhat obscure, obviously imports that the prince's portion, on both sides of the holy terumah, should extend lengthwise, i.e. from east to west, along the side of one of the portions assigned to the tribes; in other words, should be bounded on the north and south by the tribal territories of Judah and Benjamin (see Ezekiel 48:22). 45:1-25 In the period here foretold, the worship and the ministers of God will be provided for; the princes will rule with justice, as holding their power under Christ; the people will live in peace, ease, and godliness. These things seem to be represented in language taken from the customs of the times in which the prophet wrote. Christ is our Passover that is sacrificed for us: we celebrate the memorial of that sacrifice, and feast upon it, triumphing in our deliverance out of the Egyptian slavery of sin, and our preservation from the destroying sword of Divine justice, in the Lord's supper, which is our passover feast; as the whole Christian life is, and must be, the feast of the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
