As I was reading about the inheritances of the tribes of Israel, I found my inheritance!

Ezekiel 47:23, “In whatever tribe the foreigner resides, there shall you give him his inheritance, says the Lord God.”

“It is altogether unprecedented under the old covenant, that “strangers” should have “inheritance” among the tribes. There would not be locally room within Canaan for more than the tribes. The literal sense must therefore be modified, as expressing that Gentiles are not to be excluded people, and that spiritually their privileges are not to be less than those of Israel.” Critical and Explanatory Commentary, Vol. I
