The River of Healing

47In my vision, the man brought me back to the entrance of the Temple. There I saw a stream flowing east from beneath the door of the Temple and passing to the right of the altar on its south side.H7725H6607H1004H4325H3318H4670H1004H6921H6440H1004H6921H4325H3381H3233H3802H1004H5045H4196 2The man brought me outside the wall through the north gateway and led me around to the eastern entrance. There I could see the water flowing out through the south side of the east gateway.H3318H1870H8179H6828H5437H1870H2351H8179H1870H6437H6921H6379H4325H3233H3802 3Measuring as he went, he took me along the stream for 1,750 feet and then led me across. The water was up to my ankles.H376H6957H3027H3318H6921H4058H505H520H5674H4325H4325H657 4He measured off another 1,750 feet and led me across again. This time the water was up to my knees. After another 1,750 feet, it was up to my waist.H4058H505H5674H4325H4325H1290H4058H505H5674H4325H4975 5Then he measured another 1,750 feet, and the river was too deep to walk across. It was deep enough to swim in, but too deep to walk through.H4058H505H5158H3201H5674H4325H1342H4325H7813H5158H5674 6He asked me, “Have you been watching, son of man?” Then he led me back along the riverbank.H559H1121H120H7200H3212H7725H8193H5158 7When I returned, I was surprised by the sight of many trees growing on both sides of the river.H7725H8193H5158H3966H7227H6086 8Then he said to me, “This river flows east through the desert into the valley of the Dead Sea. The waters of this stream will make the salty waters of the Dead Sea fresh and pure.H559H4325H3318H6930H1552H3381H6160H935H3220H3318H3220H4325H7495 9There will be swarms of living things wherever the water of this river flows. Fish will abound in the Dead Sea, for its waters will become fresh. Life will flourish wherever this water flows.H5315H2416H8317H5158H935H2421H3966H7227H1710H4325H935H7495H2425H5158H935 10Fishermen will stand along the shores of the Dead Sea. All the way from En-gedi to En-eglaim, the shores will be covered with nets drying in the sun. Fish of every kind will fill the Dead Sea, just as they fill the Mediterranean.H1728H5975H5975H5872H5882H4894H2764H1710H4327H1710H1419H3220H3966H7227 11But the marshes and swamps will not be purified; they will still be salty.H1207H1360H7495H5414H4417 12Fruit trees of all kinds will grow along both sides of the river. The leaves of these trees will never turn brown and fall, and there will always be fruit on their branches. There will be a new crop every month, for they are watered by the river flowing from the Temple. The fruit will be for food and the leaves for healing.”H5158H8193H5927H6086H3978H5929H5034H6529H8552H1069H2320H4325H3318H4720H6529H3978H5929H8644

Boundaries for the Land

13This is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Divide the land in this way for the twelve tribes of Israel: The descendants of Joseph will be given two shares of land.H559H136H3069H1454H1366H5157H776H8147H6240H7626H3478H3130H2256 14Otherwise each tribe will receive an equal share. I took a solemn oath and swore that I would give this land to your ancestors, and it will now come to you as your possession.H5157H376H251H5375H3027H5414H1H776H5307H5159 15“These are the boundaries of the land: The northern border will run from the Mediterranean toward Hethlon, then on through Lebo-hamath to Zedad;H1366H776H6828H6285H1419H3220H1870H2855H935H6657 16then it will run to Berothah and Sibraim, which are on the border between Damascus and Hamath, and finally to Hazer-hatticon, on the border of Hauran.H2574H1268H5453H1366H1834H1366H2574H2694H1366H2362 17So the northern border will run from the Mediterranean to Hazar-enan, on the border between Hamath to the north and Damascus to the south.H1366H3220H2703H1366H1834H6828H6828H1366H2574H6828H6285 18“The eastern border starts at a point between Hauran and Damascus and runs south along the Jordan River between Israel and Gilead, past the Dead Sea and as far south as Tamar. This will be the eastern border.H6921H6285H4058H996H2362H996H1834H996H1568H996H776H3478H3383H1366H6931H3220H6921H6285 19“The southern border will go west from Tamar to the waters of Meribah at Kadesh and then follow the course of the Brook of Egypt to the Mediterranean. This will be the southern border.H5045H6285H8486H8559H4325H4808H4809H6946H5158H1419H3220H8486H6285H5045 20“On the west side, the Mediterranean itself will be your border from the southern border to the point where the northern border begins, opposite Lebo-hamath.H3220H6285H1419H3220H1366H935H5227H2574H3220H6285 21“Divide the land within these boundaries among the tribes of Israel.H2505H776H7626H3478 22Distribute the land as an allotment for yourselves and for the foreigners who have joined you and are raising their families among you. They will be like native-born Israelites to you and will receive an allotment among the tribes.H5307H5159H1616H1481H8432H3205H1121H8432H249H249H1121H3478H5307H5159H8432H7626H3478 23These foreigners are to be given land within the territory of the tribe with whom they now live. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!H7626H1616H1481H5414H5159H5002H136H3069
