Ezekiel 47

47:1 Afterward he brought me again to the door of the house; and
 behold, waters issued out from under the threshhold of the
 house eastward: for the front of the house [stood towards] the
 east, and the waters came down from under from the right side
 of the house, at the south [side] of the altar.
47:2 Then he brought me out of the way of the gate northward,
 and led me about the way without to the outer gate by the way
 that looketh eastward; and behold, there ran out waters on the
 right side.
47:3 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.
47:4 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
47:5 Afterward he measured a thousand; [and it was] a river that
 I could not pass over: for the waters had risen, waters to swim
 in, a river that could not be passed over.
47:6 And he said to me, Son of man, hast thou seen [this]? Then
 he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the
47:7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river
 [were] very many trees on the one side and on the other.
47:8 Then said he to me, These waters issue out towards 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
47:9 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.
47:10 And it shall come to pass, [that] the fishers shall stand
 upon it from En-gedi even to En-eglaim; they shall be a [place]
 to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their
 kinds, as the fish of the great sea, very numerous.
47:11 But its miry places and its marshes shall not be healed;
 they shall be given to salt.
47:12 And by the river upon its bank, on this side and on that
 side, shall grow all trees for food, whose leaf shall not fade,
 neither shall its fruit be consumed: it shall bring forth new
 fruit according to its months, because their waters they issued
 out of the sanctuary: and its fruit shall be for food, and its
 leaf for medicine.
47:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This [shall be] the border, by
 which ye shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes
 of Israel: Joseph [shall have two] portions.
47:14 And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another:
 [concerning] which I lifted up my hand to give it to your
 fathers: and this land shall fall to you for inheritance.
47:15 And this [shall be] the border of the land towards the
 north side, from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go
 to Zedad;
47:16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which [is] between the border
 of Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazar-hatticon, which
 [is] by the border of Hauran.
47:17 And the border from the sea shall be Hazar-enan, the
 border of Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of
 Hamath. And [this is] the north side.
47:18 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 to the east sea. And [this is] the east
47:19 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.
47:20 The west side also [shall be] the great sea from the
 border, till a man cometh over against Hamath. This [is] the
 west side.
47:21 So shall ye divide this land to you according to the
 tribes of Israel.
47:22 And it shall come to pass, [that] ye shall divide it by
 lot for an inheritance to you, and to the strangers that
 sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and
 they shall be to you as born in the country among the children
 of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the
 tribes of Israel.
47:23 And it shall come to pass, [that] in what tribe the
 stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give [him] his inheritance,
 saith the Lord GOD.
