Water from the Temple

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:1 - Then he brought me back to the door of the house; and behold, water was flowing from under the threshold of the house toward the east, for the house faced east. And the water was flowing down from under, from the right side of the house, from south of the altar.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:8 - Then he said to me, “These waters go out toward the eastern region and go down into the Arabah; then they go toward the [fn]sea, being made to flow into the sea, and the waters of the sea become [fn]fresh.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:9 - “And it will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the [fn]river goes, will live. And there will be very many fish, for these waters go there and the others [fn]become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:10 - “And it will come about that fishermen will stand beside it; from Engedi to Eneglaim there will be a place for the spreading of nets. Their fish will be according to their kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea, very many.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:11 - “But its swamps and marshes will not become [fn]fresh; they will be [fn]left for salt.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:12 - “And by the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.”
