The sanctuary plot of land (Ezek 45:2-45:2)

“Of this sacred land,

A square plot

Of five hundred cubits

By five hundred cubits

Shall be for the sanctuary.

There would be

Fifty cubits

For an open space

Around it.”

Only a portion of this large plot of land would be for the sanctuary. It was a rather small square area of 500 cubits on each side, or about 800 feet or less than 300 yards on each side, but still an imposing building. There was also to be 50 cubits of open space around it.
