16 And the city lies 1asquare, and its length is as great as the breadth. And he measured the city with the reed to a length of 2twelve thousand 3stadia; the 4length and the breadth and the height of it are bequal.
164 The dimensions of the Holy of Holies, in both the tabernacle and the temple, were equal in length, breadth, and height (Exo. 26:2-8; 1 Kings 6:20). Hence, that the length and the breadth and the height of New Jerusalem are equal signifies that the entire New Jerusalem will be the Holy of Holies. In it, all God's redeemed ones will serve and worship God, will see and touch God's presence, and will live and dwell in God's presence for eternity.
