King James VersionEzekiel47


1 Af­ter­ward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, be­hold, wa­ters is­sued out from un­der the thresh­old of the house east­ward: for the fore­front of the house s­tood toward the east, and the wa­ters came down from un­der from the right side of the house, at the south side of the al­tar. 2 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate north­ward, and led me about the way with­out unto the ut­ter gate by the way that looketh east­ward; and, be­hold, there ran out wa­ters on the right side. 3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth east­ward, he mea­sured a thou­sand cu­bits, and he brought me through the wa­ters; the wa­ters were to the an­kles. 4 Again he mea­sured a thou­sand, and brought me through the wa­ters; the wa­ters were to the knees. Again he mea­sured a thou­sand, and brought me through; the wa­ters were to the loins. 5 Af­ter­ward he mea­sured a thou­sand; and it was a riv­er that I could not pass over: for the wa­ters were risen, wa­ters to swim in, a riv­er that could not be passed over. 6 And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to re­turn to the brink of the riv­er. 7 Now when I had re­turned, be­hold, at the bank of the riv­er were very many trees on the one side and on the oth­er. 8 Then said he unto me, These wa­ters is­sue out to­ward the east coun­try, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the wa­ters shall be healed. 9 And it shall come to pass, that ev­ery thing that liveth, which moveth, whith­er­so­ev­er the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great mul­ti­tude of fish, be­cause these wa­ters shall come thith­er: for they shall be healed; and ev­ery thing shall live whith­er the riv­er cometh. 10 And it shall come to pass, that the fish­ers shall stand 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; they shall be giv­en to salt. 12 And by the riv­er upon the bank there­of, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, nei­ther shall the fruit there­of be con­sumed: it shall bring forth new fruit ac­cord­ing to his months, be­cause their wa­ters they is­sued out of the sanc­tu­ary: and the fruit there­of shall be for meat, and the leaf there­of for medicine. 13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This shall be the bor­der, where­by ye shall in­her­it the land ac­cord­ing to the twelve tribes of Is­rael: Joseph shall have two por­tions. 14 And ye shall in­her­it it, one as well as an­oth­er: concerning the which I lift­ed up mine hand to give it unto your fa­thers: and this land shall fall 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 go to Zedad; 16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is be­tween the bor­der of Dam­as­cus and the bor­der of Hamath; Haz­arhat­ti­con, 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 mea­sure 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 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 come over against Hamath. This is the west side. 21 So shall ye di­vide this land unto you ac­cord­ing to the tribes of Is­rael. 22 And it shall come to pass, that ye shall di­vide it by lot for an in­her­i­tance unto you, and to the strangers that so­journ among you, which shall beget chil­dren among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the coun­try among the chil­dren of Is­rael; they shall have in­her­i­tance with you among the tribes of Is­rael. 23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger so­jour­neth, there shall ye give him his in­her­i­tance, saith the Lord GOD.
