Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:1 - The man brought me back to the entrance to the temple, and I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced east). The water was coming down from under the south side of the temple, south of the altar.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:2 - He then brought me out through the north gate and led me around the outside to the outer gate facing east, and the water was trickling from the south side.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:3 - As the man went eastward with a measuring line in his hand, he measured off a thousand cubits[fn] and then led me through water that was ankle-deep.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:4 - He measured off another thousand cubits and led me through water that was knee-deep. He measured off another thousand and led me through water that was up to the waist.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:5 - He measured off another thousand, but now it was a river that I could not cross, because the water had risen and was deep enough to swim in—a river that no one could cross.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:6 - He asked me, “Son of man, do you see this?” Then he led me back to the bank of the river.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:7 - When I arrived there, I saw a great number of trees on each side of the river.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:8 - He said to me, “This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Arabah,[fn] where it enters the Dead Sea. When it empties into the sea, the salty water there becomes fresh.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:9 - Swarms of living creatures will live wherever the river flows. There will be large numbers of fish, because this water flows there and makes the salt water fresh; so where the river flows everything will live.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:10 - Fishermen will stand along the shore; from En Gedi to En Eglaim there will be places for spreading nets. The fish will be of many kinds—like the fish of the Mediterranean Sea.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:11 - But the swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:12 - Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:13 - This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “These are the boundaries of the land that you will divide among the twelve tribes of Israel as their inheritance, with two portions for Joseph.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:14 - You are to divide it equally among them. Because I swore with uplifted hand to give it to your ancestors, this land will become your inheritance.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:15 - “This is to be the boundary of the land: “On the north side it will run from the Mediterranean Sea by the Hethlon road past Lebo Hamath to Zedad,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:16 - Berothah[fn] and Sibraim (which lies on the border between Damascus and Hamath), as far as Hazer Hattikon, which is on the border of Hauran.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:17 - The boundary will extend from the sea to Hazar Enan,[fn] along the northern border of Damascus, with the border of Hamath to the north. This will be the northern boundary.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:18 - “On the east side the boundary will run between Hauran and Damascus, along the Jordan between Gilead and the land of Israel, to the Dead Sea and as far as Tamar.[fn] This will be the eastern boundary.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:19 - “On the south side it will run from Tamar as far as the waters of Meribah Kadesh, then along the Wadi of Egypt to the Mediterranean Sea. This will be the southern boundary.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:20 - “On the west side, the Mediterranean Sea will be the boundary to a point opposite Lebo Hamath. This will be the western boundary.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:21 - “You are to distribute this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:22 - You are to allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the foreigners residing among you and who have children. You are to consider them as native-born Israelites; along with you they are to be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 47:23 - In whatever tribe a foreigner resides, there you are to give them their inheritance,” declares the Sovereign LORD.
