The Book of the Prophet Ezekiel

Chapter 47

1

Afterward he brought me again55 unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out6 from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house [stood toward] the east, and the waters came down6 from under from the right side of the house, at the south [side] of the altar.

2

Then brought he me out55 of the way of the gate northward, and led me about55 the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh6 eastward; and, behold, there ran out18 waters on the right side.

3

And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth2 eastward, he measured4 a thousand cubits, and he brought55 me through the waters; the waters [were] to the ankles.

4

Again he measured4 a thousand, and brought55 me through the waters; the waters [were] to the knees. Again he measured4 a thousand, and brought me through;55 the waters [were] to the loins.

5

Afterward he measured4 a thousand; [and it was] a river that I could4 not pass over:2 for the waters were risen,1 waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.11

6

And he said4 unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen1 [this]? Then he brought55 me, and caused me to return55 to the brink of the river.

7

Now when I had returned,2 behold, at the bank of the river [were] very many trees on the one side and on the other.

8

Then said4 he unto me, These waters issue out6 toward the east country, and go down1 into the desert, and go1 into the sea: [which being] brought forth94 into the sea, the waters shall be healed.8

9

And it shall come to pass, [that] every thing that liveth, which moveth,4 whithersoever the rivers shall come,4 shall live:4 and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come1 thither: for they shall be healed;11 and every thing shall live1 whither the river cometh.4

10

And it shall come to pass, [that] the fishers shall stand1 5975 4 upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a [place] to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.

11

But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be healed;11 they shall be given8 to salt.

12

And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow4 all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade,4 neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed:4 it shall bring forth new fruit17 according to his months, because their waters they issued out6 of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

13

Thus saith1 the Lord GOD; This [shall be] the border, whereby ye shall inherit101 the land according to the twelve 6240 tribes of Israel: Joseph [shall have two] portions.

14

And ye shall inherit1 it, one as well as another: [concerning] the which I lifted up1 mine hand to give2 it unto your fathers: and this land shall fall1 unto you for inheritance.

15

And this [shall be] the border of the land toward the north side, from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go2 to Zedad;

16

Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which [is] between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazarhatticon, 8484 2694 which [is] by the coast of Hauran.

17

And the border from the sea shall be Hazarenan, the border of Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath. And [this is] the north side.

18

And the east side ye shall measure4 from Hauran, and from Damascus, and from Gilead, and from the land of Israel [by] Jordan, from the border unto the east sea. And [this is] the east side.

19

And the south side southward, from Tamar [even] to the waters of strife 4809 [in] Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And [this is] the south side southward.

20

The west side also [shall be] the great sea from the border, till a man come2 over against Hamath. This [is] the west side.

21

So shall ye divide14 this land unto you according to the tribes of Israel.

22

And it shall come to pass, [that] ye shall divide it by lot55 for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn6 among you, which shall beget52 children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have4 inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel.

23

And it shall come to pass, [that] in what tribe the stranger sojourneth,1 there shall ye give4 [him] his inheritance, saith7 the Lord GOD.
