oblation unto the LORD
45:1 oblation unto the LORD. This oblation (that is, “offering”) will consist of a very large portion of land, approximately fifty miles by twenty miles in area. Because of the large size, many translations assume that “reeds” in this verse should have been “cubits,” thus reducing the size to 8.3 miles by 3.3 miles. The original Hebrew simply reads 25,000 by 10,000 without giving the units (the same in Ezekiel 45:3).
