Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

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).
