The portion for the prince (Ezek 45:7-45:8)

“To the prince

Shall belong

The land

On both sides

Of the holy district.

This shall be

Alongside

The property of the city,

Both on the west side

As well as on the east side.

This shall correspond

In length

To one of the tribal portions,

Extending from the western

To the eastern boundary

Of the land.

It is to be

His property

In Israel.

My princes shall

No longer oppress

My people.

But they shall

Let the house of Israel

Have the land

According to their tribes.”

The prince would no longer have a close proximity to the Temple. However, he would have the land on both sides of the holy district, on the east and west side. This prince would get the equivalent in land as much as a tribal portion. This new prince would no longer oppress Yahweh’s people. The rest of the tribes of Israel would also have their land according to their tribes.
