Barnes' Notes on the Bible

The ideal reallotment of the land to the twelve tribes of Israel is found in Ezekiel 47:13-48:14.

The special mention of Joseph's portions was in order to express that the twelve portions were to be exclusive of Levi's land, which was to be provided out of the "oblation."
