And the remaining land will be for the ruler. It will be on the one side and on the other of the holy offering and of the property of the city; extending from the 25,000 cubits of the offering area to the east border of the land, and extending westward from the 25,000 cubits of the offering area to the west border, alongside the tribal portions; it will be for the ruler. And the holy offering and the sanctuary of the house will be in its middle. Bible

“the ruler.” We learn from the scope of Scripture that this ruler is the Messiah, Jesus Christ. He will have a land area set aside for himself in the Millennial Kingdom. Joshua, a type of Christ, foreshadowed this when he received a city in the Promised Land as his personal inheritance in return for his faithfulness to God (Josh. 19:49-50).

“to the west border.” The west border is the Mediterranean Sea.

“the house.” The house of God, meaning the Temple, and the sanctuary, in the temple proper, in the middle of the holy area.
