1 Et convertit me ad portam domus, et ecce aquae egre diebantur subter limen domus ad orientem; facies enim domus respiciebat ad orientem, aquae autem descendebant a latere templi dextro a meridie altaris.
2 Et eduxit me per viam portae aquilonis et convertit me ad viam foras ad portam exteriorem, quae respiciebat ad orientem; et ecce aquae exeuntes a latere dextro.
3 Cum egrederetur vir ad orientem, qui habebat funiculum in manu sua, mensus est mille cubitos et traduxit me per aquam usque ad talos.
4 Rursumque mensus est mille et traduxit me per aquam usque ad genua.
5 Et mensus est mille et traduxit me per aquam usque ad renes. Et mensus est mille; torrens, quem non potui pertransire, quoniam intumuerant aquae, aquae ad natandum; torrens, qui non poterat transvadari.
6 Et dixit ad me: "Certe vidisti, fili hominis"; et duxit me et convertit ad ripam torrentis.
7 Cumque me convertissem, ecce in ripa torrentis ligna multa nimis ex utraque parte;
8 et ait ad me: "Aquae istae, quae egrediuntur ad regionem orientalem et descendunt ad Arabam, intrabunt mare, aquas salsas, et sanabuntur aquae:
9 et omnis anima vivens, quae movetur, quocumque venerit torrens, vivet, et erunt pisces multi satis, postquam venerint illuc aquae istae, et sanabuntur et vivent omnia, ad quae venerit torrens.
10 Et stabunt super mare piscatores; ab Engaddi usque ad Engallim siccatio sagenarum erit; plurimae species erunt piscium eius, sicut pisces maris Magni, multitudinis nimiae.
11 Palustria autem eius et stagna non sanabuntur, quia in salinas dabuntur.
12 Et super torrentem orietur in ripis eius ex utraque parte omne lignum pomiferum; non defluet folium ex eo, et non deficiet fructus eius: per singulos menses afferet primitiva, quia aquae eius de sanctuario egredientur, et erunt fructus eius in cibum, et folia eius ad medicinam.
13 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Hic est terminus, in quo possidebitis terram in duodecim tribubus Israel, quia Ioseph duplicem funiculum habet;
14 possidebitis autem eam, singuli aeque ut frater suus, super quam levavi manum meam, ut darem patribus vestris; et cadet terra haec vobis in possessionem.
15 Hic est autem terminus terrae: ad plagam septentrionalem a mari Magno via Hethalon ad introitum Emath,
16 Sedada, Berotha, Sabarim, quae est inter terminum Damasci et confinium Emath, usque ad Asarenon, quae est iuxta terminum Auran;
17 erit ergo terminus a mari usque ad Asarenon, cum fines Damasci et fines Emath sint in aquilone; haec est plaga septentrionalis.
18 Porro plaga orientalis de loco inter Auran et inter Damascum et in medio inter Galaad et terram Israel, Iordanis disterminans usque ad mare orientale, usque Thamar; haec est plaga orientalis.
19 Plaga autem australis meridiana a Thamar usque ad aquas Meribathcades et torrentem usque ad mare Magnum; haec est plaga ad meridiem australis.
20 Et plaga maris, mare Magnum a confinio per directum, donec venias Emath; haec est plaga maris.
21 Et dividetis terram istam vobis per tribus Israel
22 et mittetis eam in hereditatem, vobis et advenis, qui accesserint ad vos, qui genuerint filios in medio vestrum, et erunt vobis sicut indigenae inter filios Israel: vobiscum divident possessionem in medio tribuum Israel;
23 in tribu autem quacumque fuerit advena, ibi dabitis possessionem illi, ait Dominus Deus.
King James Version
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 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 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 En-gedi even unto 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, 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; Hazar-hatticon, which is by the coast of Hauran.
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.
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.
