The descendants of Zadok (Ezek 48:11-48:12)

“This shall be

For the consecrated priests,

The descendants of Zadok.

They kept my charge.

They did not go astray,

When the people of Israel

Went astray,

As the Levites did.

It shall belong to them,

As a special portion,

From the holy portion

Of the land.

It shall be

A most holy place.

Adjoining the territory

Of the Levites.”

The descendants of Zadok were going to have a special place as mentioned in chapter 44. They were the ones who had not gone astray, like the other Levite priests, in the time before the exile. Thus, they will get a special portion of the holy section of this land, next to the other Levitical priests.
