New Defender's Study Bible Notes
45:7 portion shall be for the prince. See Ezekiel 44:3. This “prince” is mentioned sixteen times in Ezekiel 44–48. As the millennial human ruler of Israel (and, by inference, of the whole world), he has a very large portion of land for his use, evidently extending due west to the Mediterranean Sea and due east to the eastern border of Israel, presumably the Euphrates River (Genesis 15:18), outside of the 25,000 x 25,000 area set aside for the priests, Levites and Jerusalem. One might speculate that this large area of land may also house “the camp of the saints” mentioned in Revelation 20:9, the resurrected saints of the ages prior to the millennium who will “be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years” (Revelation 20:6).
