1 And he brought me to the entrance of the house; and, behold, water issued from under the porch eastward, for the front of the house looked eastward; and the water came down from the right side, from the south to the altar. 2 And he brought me out by the way of the northern gate, and he led me round by the way outside to the gate of the court that looks eastward; and, behold, water came down from the right side, 3 in [the direction] in which a man went forth opposite; and [there was] a measuring line in his hand, and he measured a thousand [cubits] with the measure; 4 and he passed through the water; [it was] water of a fountain: and [again] he measured a thousand, and passed through the water; and the water was up to the thighs: and [again] he measured a thousand; and he passed through water up to the loins. 5 and [again] he measured a thousand; and he could not pass through: for [the water] rose as of a torrent which [men] cannot pass over. 6 And he said to me, Hast thou seen [this], son of man? Then he brought me, and led me back to the brink of the river 7 as I returned; and, behold, on the brink of the river [there were] very many trees on this side and on that side. 8 And he said to me, This is the water that goes forth to Galilee that lies eastward, and it is gone down to Arabia, and has reached as far as to the sea to the outlet of the water: and it shall heal the waters. 9 And it shall come to pass, [that] every animal of living [and] moving creatures, all on which the river shall come, shall live: and there shall be there very many fish; for this water shall go thither, and it shall heal [them], and they shall live: everything on which the river shall come shall live. 10 And fishers shall stand there from Ingadin to Enagallim; it shall be a place to spread out nets upon; it shall be distinct; and the fishes thereof [shall be] as the fishes of the great sea, a very great multitude. 11 But at the outlet of the water, and the turn of it, and where it overflows [its banks], they shall not heal at all; they are given to salt. 12 And every fruit tree shall grow by the river, [even] on the bank of it on this side and on that side: they shall not decay upon it, neither shall their fruit fail: they shall bring forth the first-fruit of their early crop, for these their waters come forth of the sanctuary: and their fruit shall be for meat, and their foliage for health. 13 Thus saith the Lord God; Ye shall inherit these borders of the land; [they are] given by lot to the twelve tribes of the children of Israel. 14 And ye shall inherit it, each according to his brother’s portion, [even the land] concerning which I lifted up my hand to give [it] to your fathers: and this land shall fall to you by lot. 15 [*] And these are the borders of the land that lies northward, from the great sea that comes down, and divides the entrance of Emaseldam; 16 Maabthera, Ebrameliam, between the coasts of Damascus and the coasts of Emathi, the habitation of Saunan, which [places] are above the coasts of Auranitis. 17 These are the borders from the sea, from the habitations of Aenan, the coasts of Damascus, and the northern [coasts]. 18 And the eastern coasts between Loranitis, and Damascus, and the land of Galaad, and the land of Israel, the Jordan divides to the sea that is east of the city of palm-trees. These are the eastern [coasts]. 19 And the southern and south-western [coasts are] from Thaeman and the city of palm-trees, to the water of Marimoth Cadem, reaching forth to the great sea. This part is the south and south-west. 20 This part of the great sea forms a border, till [one comes] opposite the entrance of Emath, [even] as far as the entrance thereof. These are the parts west of Emath. 21 So ye shall divide this land to them, [even] to the tribes of Israel. 22 Ye shall cast the lot upon it, for yourselves and the strangers that sojourn in the midst of you, who have begotten children in the midst of you: and they shall be to you as natives among the children of Israel; they shall eat with you in [their] inheritance in the midst of the tribes of Israel. 23 And they shall be in the tribe of proselytes among the proselytes that are with them: there shall ye give them an inheritance, saith the Lord God. ΚΑΙ εἰσήγαγέ με ἐπὶ τὰ πρόθυρα τοῦ οἴκου, καὶ ἰδοὺ ὕδωρ ἐξεπορεύετο ὑποκάτωθεν τοῦ αἰθρίου κατὰ ἀνατολάς, ὅτι τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ οἴκου ἔβλεπε κατὰ ἀνατολάς, καὶ τὸ ὕδωρ κατέβαινεν ἀπὸ τοῦ κλίτους τοῦ δεξιοῦ ἀπὸ νότου ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον. 2 καὶ ἐξήγαγέ με κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τῆς πύλης τῆς πρὸς βορρᾶν καὶ περιήγαγέ με τὴν ὁδὸν ἔξωθεν πρὸς τὴν πύλην τῆς αὐλῆς τῆς βλεπούσης κατὰ ἀνατολάς, καὶ ἰδοὺ τὸ ὕδωρ κατεφέρετο ἀπὸ τοῦ κλίτους τοῦ δεξιοῦ. 3 καθὼς ἔξοδος ἀνδρὸς ἐξεναντίας, καὶ μέτρον ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ διεμέτρησε χιλίους ἐν τῷ μέτρῳ, καὶ διῆλθεν ἐν τῷ ὕδατι ὕδωρ ἀφέσεως· 4 καὶ διεμέτρησε χιλίους, καὶ διῆλθεν ἐν τῷ ὕδατι ὕδωρ ἕως τῶν μηρῶν· καὶ διεμέτρησε χιλίους, καὶ διῆλθεν ὕδωρ ἕως ὀσφύος· 5 καὶ διεμέτρησε χιλίους, καὶ οὐκ ἠδύνατο διελθεῖν, ὅτι ἐξύβριζε τὸ ὕδωρ ὡς ῥοῖζος χειμάρρου, ὃν οὐ διαβήσονται. 6 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· ἑώρακας, υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου; καὶ ἤγαγέ με καὶ ἐπέστρεψέ με ἐπὶ τὸ χεῖλος τοῦ ποταμοῦ. 7 ἐν τῇ ἐπιστροφῇ μου καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐπὶ τοῦ χείλους τοῦ ποταμοῦ δένδρα πολλὰ σφόδρα ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν. 8 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· τὸ ὕδωρ τοῦτο τὸ ἐκπορευόμενον εἰς τὴν Γαλιλαίαν τὴν πρὸς ἀνατολὰς καὶ κατέβαινεν ἐπὶ τὴν ᾿Αραβίαν καὶ ἤρχετο ἕως ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν ἐπὶ τὸ ὕδωρ τῆς διεκβολῆς, καὶ ὑγιάσει τὰ ὕδατα. 9 καὶ ἔσται πᾶσα ψυχὴ τῶν ζῴων τῶν ἐκζεόντων ἐπὶ πάντα, ἐφ᾿ ἃ ἂν ἐπέλθῃ ἐκεῖ ὁ ποταμός, ζήσεται. καὶ ἔσται ἐκεῖ ἰχθὺς πολὺς σφόδρα, ὅτι ἥκει ἐκεῖ τὸ ὕδωρ τοῦτο, καὶ ὑγιάσει καὶ ζήσεται· πᾶν ἐφ᾿ ὃ ἂν ἔλθῃ ὁ ποταμὸς ἐκεῖ, ζήσεται. 10 καὶ στήσονται ἐκεῖ ἁλιεῖς ἀπὸ Αἰνγαδεὶν ἕως ᾿Εναγαλείμ· ψυγμὸς σαγηνῶν ἔσται, καθ᾿ ἑαυτὴν ἔσται, καὶ οἱ ἰχθύες αὐτῆς ὡς οἱ ἰχθύες τῆς θαλάσσης τῆς μεγάλης, πλῆθος πολὺ σφόδρα. 11 καὶ ἐν τῇ διεκβολῇ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν τῇ ἐπιστροφῇ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν τῇ ὑπεράρσει αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ ὑγιάσωσιν· εἰς ἅλας δέδονται. 12 καὶ ἐπὶ τοῦ ποταμοῦ ἀναβήσεται, ἐπὶ τοῦ χείλους αὐτοῦ ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν πᾶν ξύλον βρώσιμον, οὐ μὴ παλαιωθῇ ἐπ᾿ αὐτοῦ, οὐδὲ μὴ ἐκλείπῃ ὁ καρπὸς αὐτοῦ· τῆς καινότητος αὐτοῦ πρωτοβολήσει, διότι τὰ ὕδατα αὐτῶν ἐκ τῶν ἁγίων ταῦτα ἐκπορεύεται, καὶ ἔσται ὁ καρπὸς αὐτῶν εἰς βρῶσιν καὶ ἀνάβασις αὐτῶν εἰς ὑγίειαν. 13 Τάδε λέγει Κύριος Θεός· ταῦτα τὰ ὅρια κατακληρονομήσετε τῆς γῆς, ταῖς δώδεκα φυλαῖς τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ πρόσθεσις σχοινίσματος. 14 καὶ κατακληρονομήσετε αὐτὴν ἕκαστος καθὼς ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ, εἰς ἣν ᾖρα τὴν χεῖρά μου τοῦ δοῦναι αὐτὴν τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν, καὶ πεσεῖται ἡ γῆ αὕτη ὑμῖν ἐν κληρονομίᾳ. 15 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὅρια τῆς γῆς τῆς πρὸς βορρᾶν· ἀπὸ θαλάσσης τῆς μεγάλης τῆς καταβαινούσης καὶ περισχιζούσης τῆς εἰσόδου ᾿Ημὰθ Σεδαδά, 16 Βηρωθὰ Σεβραὶμ ῾Ηλιὰμ ἀναμέσον ὁρίων Δαμασκοῦ καὶ ἀναμέσον ὁρίων ᾿Ημάθ, αὐλὴ τοῦ Σαυνάν, αἵ εἰσιν ἐπάνω τῶν ὁρίων Αὐρανίτιδος. 17 ταῦτα τὰ ὅρια ἀπὸ τῆς θαλάσσης ἀπὸ τῆς αὐλῆς τοῦ Αἰνάν, ὅρια Δαμασκοῦ καὶ τὰ πρὸς βορρᾶν. 18 καὶ τὰ πρὸς ἀνατολὰς ἀναμέσον τῆς Αὐρανίτιδος καὶ ἀναμέσον Δαμασκοῦ καὶ ἀναμέσον τῆς Γαλααδίτιδος καὶ ἀναμέσον τῆς γῆς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, ὁ ᾿Ιορδάνης διορίζει ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν πρὸς ἀνατολὰς Φοινικῶνος· ταῦτα τὰ πρὸς ἀνατολάς. 19 καὶ τὰ πρὸς νότον καὶ λίβα ἀπὸ Θαιμὰν καὶ Φοινικῶνος ἕως ὕδατος Μαριμὼθ Κάδης παρεκτεῖνον ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν μεγάλην· 20 τοῦτο τὸ μέρος νότος καὶ λίψ. τοῦτο τὸ μέρος τῆς θαλάσσης τῆς μεγάλης· ὁρίζει ἕως κατέναντι τῆς εἰσόδου ᾿Ημάθ, ἕως εἰσόδου αὐτοῦ· ταῦτά ἐστι τὰ πρὸς θάλασσαν ᾿Ημάθ. 21 καὶ διαμερίσετε τὴν γῆν ταύτην αὐτοῖς, ταῖς φυλαῖς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 22 βαλεῖτε αὐτὴν ἐν κλήρῳ ὑμῖν καὶ τοῖς προσηλύτοις τοῖς παροικοῦσιν ἐν μέσῳ ὑμῶν, οἵτινες ἐγέννησαν υἱοὺς ἐν μέσῳ ὑμῶν· καὶ ἔσονται ὑμῖν ὡς αὐτόχθονες ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν φάγονται ἐν κληρονομίᾳ ἐν μέσῳ τῶν φυλῶν τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ· 23 καὶ ἔσονται ἐν φυλῇ προσηλύτων ἐν τοῖς προσηλύτοις τοῖς μετ᾿ αὐτῶν, ἐκεῖ δώσετε κληρονομίαν αὐτοῖς, λέγει Κύριος Θεός.
