Ezekiel 47

Water from the Temple

1Then he brought me back to the door of the house; and behold, water was flowing from under the threshold of the house toward the east, for the house faced east. And the water was flowing down from under, from the right side of the house, from south of the altar. He brought me out by way of the north gate and led me around [a]on the outside to the outer gate by way of the gate that faces east. And behold, water was trickling from the south side.

When the man went out toward the east with a line in his hand, he measured a thousand cubits, and he led me through the water, water reaching the ankles. Again he measured a thousand and led me through the water, water reaching the knees. Again he measured a thousand and led me through the water, water reaching the loins. Again he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not ford, for the water had risen, enough water to swim in, a river that could not be forded. He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he brought me [b]back to the bank of the river. Now when I had returned, behold, on the bank of the river there were very many trees on the one side and on the other. Then he said to me, “These waters go out toward the eastern region and go down into the Arabah; then they go toward the sea, being made to flow into the sea, and the waters of the sea become [c]fresh. It will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the [d]river goes, will live. And there will be very many fish, for these waters go there and the others [e]become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes. 10 And it will come about that fishermen will stand beside it; from Engedi to Eneglaim there will be a place for the spreading of nets. Their fish will be according to their kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea, very many. 11 But its swamps and marshes will not become [f]fresh; they will be [g]left for salt. 12 By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They will bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.”

Boundaries and Division of the Land

13 Thus says the Lord [h]God, “This shall be the boundary by which you shall divide the land for an inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel; Joseph shall have two portions. 14 You shall divide it for an inheritance, each one [i]equally with the other; for I [j]swore to give it to your forefathers, and this land shall fall to you [k]as an inheritance.

15 “This shall be the boundary of the land: on the north side, from the Great Sea by the way of Hethlon, to the entrance of [l]Zedad; 16 [m]Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazer-hatticon, which is by the border of Hauran. 17 The boundary shall [n]extend from the sea to Hazar-enan at the border of Damascus, and on the north toward the north is the border of Hamath. This is the north side.

18 “The east side, from between Hauran, Damascus, Gilead and the land of Israel, shall be the Jordan; from the north border to the eastern sea you shall measure. This is the east side.

19 “The south side toward the south shall extend from Tamar as far as the waters of Meribath-kadesh, to the brook of Egypt and to the Great Sea. This is the south side toward the south.

20 “The west side shall be the Great Sea, from the south border to a point opposite [o]Lebo-hamath. This is the west side.

21 “So you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel. 22 You shall divide it by lot for an inheritance among yourselves and among the aliens who stay in your midst, who bring forth sons in your midst. And they shall be to you as the native-born among the sons of Israel; they shall be allotted an inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel. 23 And in the tribe with which the alien stays, there you shall give him his inheritance,” declares the Lord God.

以西結書 47


1他又領我回到聖殿門口,我看見有水從聖殿的門檻下往東流去。殿的正面朝東,這水從殿的南側經祭壇的南邊往下流。 隨後他領我由北門出來,從外面繞到外院的東門,我見水從東門的南面涓涓流出。

那人手拿量繩向東量了五百米,然後領我涉水前行,水深及踝。 他又量了五百米,領我涉水前行,水深及膝。他又量了五百米,領我涉水前行,水深及腰。 他又量了五百米,水已高漲成河,足可游泳,無法再涉水而行。 他問我:「人子啊,你看見了什麼?」

然後,他帶我回到河邊, 我發現河的兩岸長滿了樹木。 他對我說:「這水向東流,經過亞拉巴流到鹽海,使那裡的鹹水變為淡水。 河水流經的地方,萬物滋長,魚產豐盛,因為河水使那裡的鹹水變成淡水了。 10 漁夫要站在岸邊捕魚,從隱·基底到隱·以革蓮都是曬網的地方。那裡的魚就像大海的魚一樣種類繁多。 11 但沼澤和濕窪之地卻不會改變,留作產鹽之地。 12 沿河兩岸長著各種果樹,樹的葉子不會枯乾,果實也不會斷絕。樹必月月結出新果,不但果實可吃,葉子還可作藥用,因為這水是從聖所流出來的。」


13 主耶和華說:「你要按照我劃定的地界,把土地分給以色列的十二支派作產業,除約瑟支派[a]要得兩份地業外, 14 其他各支派都要均分,因為我曾起誓將這地方賜給你們祖先。這地方必成為你們的產業。

15 「以下是這地方的地界:北界從地中海岸經希特倫到哈馬口、西達達、 16 比羅他和大馬士革與哈馬邊界中間的西伯蓮,一直到浩蘭邊界的哈撒·哈提幹。 17 這樣,北界是從地中海岸一直到大馬士革邊界的哈撒·以難,以哈馬為界。

18 「東界是從北界南下經浩蘭、大馬士革、沿著基列和以色列中間的約旦河為界,一直伸展到東部的海。

19 「南界從他瑪西經米利巴·加低斯泉和埃及小河直到地中海。

20 「西界從南界沿地中海的海岸到北界哈馬口對面的地方。

21 「你們要按照以色列的各支派分這塊地, 22 用抽籤的方法來分產業,也要分給在你們中間居住、生兒育女的外族人。你們要視他們如同以色列人,要讓他們與你們同分產業。 23 他們居住在哪一支派,哪一支派便要把產業分給他們。這是主耶和華說的。」
