By Don Ruhl

The last chapter of the Book of Ezekiel shows the tribes of Israel receiving land, yet, the boundaries are not the same as before. Notice the size for Judah,

…by the border of Judah, from the east side to the west, shall be the district which you shall set apart, twenty-five thousand cubits in width, and in length the same as one of the other portions, from the east side to the west, with the sanctuary in the center (Ezekiel 48.8). 

If the cubit was 18 inches, the width was only 7.1 miles. It is difficult to know what is going on in this chapter, but you can know that the Lord takes care of His own.
