View In My Bible
1 And he turned me (again) to the gate of the house (of the Lord); and lo! waters went out (from) under the threshold of the house to the east; for the face of the house (of the Lord) beheld to the east; forsooth the waters came down into the right side of the temple, to the south part of the altar. (And he returned me to the gate of the House of the Lord; and lo! water went out from under the threshold of the House of the Lord to the east; for the front of the Temple faced east; and the water came down from the right side of the Temple, to the south side of the altar/to south of the altar.) 2 And he led me out by the way of the north gate, and he turned me to the way without the outermore gate, to the way that beholdeth to the east; and lo! waters flowing from the right side, (And he led me out by the way of the north gate, and he turned me to the way outside the outer gate, to the way that faceth east; and lo! water was flowing out from the right side,) 3 when the man that had a cord in his hand went out to the east. And he meted a thousand cubits, and led me over through the water till to the heels. (when that man, who had a cord in his hand, went out to the east. And he measured a thousand cubits, and led me through the water unto my heels.) 4 And again he meted a thousand, and led me over through the water till to the knees. And again he meted a thousand, and led me over through the water till to the reins. (And again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water unto my knees. And again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water unto my waist.) 5 And (again) he meted a thousand, by the strand which I might not pass [over]; for the deep waters of the strand had waxed great, that may not be waded over. (And again he measured a thousand, and it was now a river, which I could not cross over; for the deep waters of the river had grown so great, that they could not be waded through.) 6 And he said to me, Certainly, son of man, thou hast seen (this). And he led me, and he turned me (again) to the river of the strand. (And he said to me, Son of man, mark thou this well/remember that thou hast seen this. And then he led me back to the river bank.) 7 And when I had turned me (again), lo! in the river of the strand (were) full many trees on ever either side. (And when I had returned there, lo! on the river bank were a great many trees on either side.) 8 And he said to me, These waters that go out to the heaps of sand of the east, and go down into [the] plain places of desert, shall enter into the sea, and shall go out; and the waters shall be healed. (And he said to me, This water that goeth out to the heaps of sand in the east, and goeth down to the plains of the desert, or down to the Arabah, shall enter into the Dead Sea, and then shall go out again; and the waters of the Dead Sea shall be healed.) 9 And each living beast that creepeth, shall live, whither ever the strand shall come; and fishes many enough shall be, after that these waters come thither, and [they] shall be healed, and shall live; all things to which the strand shall come, shall live. (And every living beast that moveth, shall live, wherever the stream shall come; and there shall be a great many fish, after that this water cometh there, and they shall be healed, and shall live; yea, everything to which the stream shall come, shall live/shall have life.) 10 And fishers shall stand on those waters; from Engedi till to Eneglaim shall be drying of nets; full many kinds of fishes thereof shall be, as the fishes of the great sea, of full great multitude; (And fishermen shall stand by this water; from Engedi unto Eneglaim shall be the drying of nets; and there shall be a great many kinds of fish, like the fish of the Great Sea, that is, the Mediterranean Sea, yea, of a very great multitude;) 11 but in the brinks thereof and in (the) marishes (the) waters shall not be healed, for those shall be given into places of (the) making of salt. 12 And each tree bearing fruit shall grow on the strand, in the rivers thereof on each side; a leaf thereof shall not fall down, and the fruit thereof shall not fail; by all months it shall bear first fruits, for the waters thereof shall go out of the saintuary; and the fruits thereof shall be into meat, and the leaves thereof to medicine. (And every tree bearing fruit shall grow by the stream, on its banks on each side; none of their leaves shall fall down, and none of their fruit shall fail; in every month they shall bear first fruits, for the water there shall have gone out from the sanctuary; and their fruit shall be for food, and their leaves for shall be medicine.) 13 The Lord God saith these things, This is the end, in which ye shall wield the land, in the twelve lineages of Israel; for Joseph hath double part. (The Lord God saith these things, These be the borders, or the boundaries, in which ye shall possess the land, among the twelve tribes of Israel; for Joseph hath a double portion.) 14 Forsooth ye shall wield it, each man evenly as his brother; on which I raised mine hand, that I should give to your fathers; and this land shall fall to you into possession. (And ye shall possess it, each man equally like his brother; on which I raised up my hand, that I should give it to your forefathers; and this land shall fall to you into a possession.) 15 This is the end of the land at the north coast, from the great sea, (by) the way of Hethlon, to men coming to Zedad, (This is the border of the land on the north side, from the Great Sea, by way of Hethlon, to those coming to Zedad,) 16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is in the midst betwixt Damascus and [the] nigh coasts of Hamath, (to) the house of Hatticon, which is beside the ends of Hauran. (Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is in the midst between Damascus and the border of Hamath, unto Hazarhatticon, which is by the border of Hauran.) 17 And the end shall be from the sea till to the porch of Enan, (to) the end of Damascus, and from the north till to the north, (to) the end of Hamath; forsooth this is the north coast. (And so the border shall be from the Great Sea, unto Hazarenan, to the border of Damascus, and from the north unto the north, to the border of Hamath; this is the north side.) 18 Certainly the east coast from the midst of Hauran, and from the midst of Damascus, and from the midst of Gilead, and from the midst of the land of Israel, is Jordan, parting at the east sea, also ye shall mete the east coast. (And ye shall measure the east side from the midst of Hauran, and from the midst of Damascus, and from the midst of Gilead, and from the midst of the land of Israel, unto the Jordan River, and then south unto the East Sea, that is, the Dead Sea, to Tamar; this is the east side.) 19 Forsooth the south coast of midday is from Tamar till to the waters of against-saying of Kadesh; and the strand till to the great sea, and the south coast of midday. (And the south side is southward from Tamar unto the waters of strife at Kadesh/unto the waters of Meribah-by-Kadesh; and along the river, unto the Great Sea; this is the south side toward the Negeb.) 20 And the coast of the sea is the great sea, from the nigh coast by [the] straight, till thou come to Hamath; this is the coast of the sea. (And the west side is the Great Sea, straight north along the coast, until thou come to Hamath; this is the west side.) 21 And ye shall part this land to you by the lineages of Israel; (And ye shall divide this land unto the tribes of Israel;) 22 and ye shall send it into heritage to you, and to comelings that come to you, that engendered sons in the midst of you; and they shall be to you as men born in the land among the sons of Israel; with you they shall part possession, in the midst of the lineages of Israel. (and ye shall divide it into an inheritance for yourselves, and for the newcomers who come to you, who beget children in the midst of you; and they shall be to you like people born in the land among the Israelites; they shall share the possession with you, in the midst of the tribes of Israel.) 23 Forsooth in whatever lineage a comeling is, there ye shall give possession to him, saith the Lord God. (Yea, in whatever tribe a newcomer is, there ye shall give a possession to him, saith the Lord God.)
