Ezekiel 47:1-23, NLT
The River of Healing
1In 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.
3Measuring as he went, he took me along the stream for 1,750 feet*47:3 Hebrew 1,000 cubits [530 meters]; also in 47:4, 5. and then led me across. The water was up to my ankles.
6He asked me, “Have you been watching, son of man?” Then he led me back along the riverbank.
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.*47:13 It was important to retain twelve portions of land. Since Levi had no portion, the descendants of Joseph’s sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, received land as two tribes.
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;
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*47:18a Hebrew the eastern sea. and as far south as Tamar.*47:18b As in Greek version; Hebrew reads you will measure. This will be the eastern border.
19“The southern border will go west from Tamar to the waters of Meribah at Kadesh*47:19 Hebrew waters of Meribath-kadesh. and then follow the course of the Brook of Egypt to the Mediterranean. This will be the southern border.
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.
21“Divide the land within these boundaries among the tribes of Israel.
