47 Afterward he brought me again unto athe door of the house; and, behold, bwaters issued out from under cthe 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 dthe altar. 2 Then brought he me out of the way of ethe gate northward, and led me about the way without unto fthe utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. 3 And when gthe man that had hthe line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; †the waters were to the ancles. 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 ivery many trees on the one side and on the other. 8 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east kcountry, and go down into the ||desert, and go into lthe sea: which being brought forth into lthe sea, the waters shall be healed. 9 And it shall come to pass, that mevery thing that liveth, nwhich 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 oEn-gedi even unto pEn-eglaim; they shall be qa place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of rthe great sea, exceeding many. 11 But sthe miry places thereof and tthe marishes thereof ||shall not be healed; they shall be given to usalt. 12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, von this side and on that side, †shall grow all wtrees for meat, xwhose leaf shall not yfade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: zit shall bring forth ||anew fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and vzthe leaf thereof ||for medicine.
13 Thus saith the Lord God; This shall be the border, whereby ye shall inherit the land aaaccording to the twelve tribes of Israel: bJoseph shall have two portions. 14 And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning the which I ||lifted up mine hand cto give it unto your fathers: and dthis land shall fall unto you for inheritance. 15 And this shall be the border of the land toward the north side, from ethe great sea, fthe way of Hethlon, as men go gto Zedad; 16 fghHamath, iBerothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of fkDamascus and the border of hHamath; ||Hazar-hatticon, which is by the coast of lHauran. 17 And the border from the sea shall be fmHazar-enan, the border of fkDamascus, and the north northward, and the border of fhHamath. And this is the north side. 18 And the east side ye shall measure †from lHauran, and †from kDamascus, and †from nGilead, and †from the land of Israel by Jordan, from the border unto othe east sea. And this is the east side. 19 And pthe south side southward, pfrom qTamar even to rthe waters of ||strife in Kadesh, psthe ||river to ethe great sea. And this is the south side ||tsouthward. 20 The west side also shall be ethe great sea from the border, till a man come over against hHamath. This is the west side. 21 So shall ye divide this land unto you aaaccording to the tribes of Israel.
22 And it shall come to pass, that ye shall udivide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and vto the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and wthey shall be unto you as xborn in the country among the children of Israel; they shall uhave 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.
