no references for this verse









(16) The measures.--The city itself is to be an exact square of 4,500 reeds, and according to Ezekiel 48:17, was to have "suburbs," or rather an open space on all sides of 250 reeds. The whole was, therefore, 5,000 reeds--a little less than ten miles--square, the exact width of the space that was left of the oblation, and leaving 10,000 reeds on each side of it.

Verse 16. - The dimensions of the city should be four thousand five hundred reeds on the four sides; in other words, it should form a square (comp. Leviticus 21:16). The חמשׁ, left unpunctuated by the Massorites, and marked as "written but not to be read," should be omitted as an error.
