The offering that you are to offer to Yahweh will be 25,000 cubits in length, and 10,000 in breadth. Bible

“The offering.” See commentary on Ezekiel 48:8.

“25,000 cubits…10,000 cubits.” 25,000 royal cubits is just over 8 miles (8.12 miles; 13.06 km), while 10,000 royal cubits is roughly 3.25 miles (5.23 km). For the measurement of the royal cubit, see commentary on Ezekiel 48:8.

“in length.” “Length” is the east-west measurement. Since the biblical worldview was oriented to the east, “length” was usually an east-west measurement.

“in breadth.” “Breadth” is the north-south measurement. Since the biblical worldview was oriented to the east, “breadth” was usually a north-south measurement.
