← Ezekiel 46   Ezekiel 48 →

1 Kaj li revenigis min al la pordo de la domo; kaj mi ekvidis, ke jen el sub la sojlo de la domo fluas akvo orienten, cxar la vizagxa flanko de la domo estis turnita orienten; kaj la akvo fluis el sub la dekstra flanko de la domo al la suda flanko de la altaro.

2 Kaj li elkondukis min tra la norda pordego, kaj kondukis min laux ekstera vojo al la ekstera pordego, turnita orienten; kaj jen la akvo fluas el la dekstra flanko.

3 Kiam la viro iris orienten, li havis en sia mano mezursxnuron, kaj li mezuris mil ulnojn, kaj transpasigis min trans la akvon, kiu estis alta gxis la maleoloj.

4 Kaj li mezuris ankoraux mil ulnojn, kaj transpasigis min trans la akvon; la akvo estis alta gxis la genuoj. Kaj li mezuris ankoraux mil, kaj transpasigis min trans la akvon, kiu estis alta gxis la lumboj.

5 Kiam li mezuris ankoraux mil, estis jam torento, kiun mi ne povis transiri; cxar la akvo estis tro alta, oni devis gxin transnagxi, sed transiri la torenton oni ne povis.

6 Kaj li diris al mi:CXu vi vidis, ho filo de homo? Kaj li kondukis min returne al la bordo de la torento.

7 Kiam mi revenis, mi vidis, ke sur la bordo de la torento estas jam tre multe da arboj sur ambaux flankoj.

8 Kaj li diris al mi:CXi tiu akvo, kiu eliras el la orienta regiono, iros malsupren en la stepon, kaj venos en la maron; kiam gxi trovigxos en la maro, tiam sanigxos la akvo.

9 Kaj cxiu vivanta estajxo, kiu rampas tie, kie pasas la torentoj, revivigxos, kaj estos tre multe da fisxoj; cxar tien venos cxi tiu akvo, kaj cxio sanigxos kaj revivigxos, kien venos la torento.

10 Kaj staros apud gxi fisxkaptistoj de En-Gedi gxis En-Eglaim, kaj ili etendos tie retojn; iliaj fisxoj estos tiaspecaj, kiel la fisxoj de la Granda Maro, kaj tre multe.

11 Sed gxiaj marcxoj kaj marcxetoj ne sanigxos, ili estos destinitaj por salo.

12 Kaj apud la torento sur ambaux bordoj kreskos cxiaspecaj mangxajxdonantaj arboj; ne velkos iliaj folioj, kaj ne forfinigxos iliaj fruktoj; cxiumonate ili donos novajn fruktojn, cxar la akvo por ili fluas el la sanktejo; kaj iliaj fruktoj estos uzataj kiel mangxajxo, kaj iliaj folioj kiel kuracilo.

13 Tiele diras la Sinjoro, la Eternulo:Jen estas la limoj, laux kiuj vi devas dividi heredige la teron al la dek du triboj de Izrael:al Jozef duoblan parton.

14 Kaj dividu gxin al cxiuj egale; cxar per levo de la mano Mi promesis doni gxin al viaj patroj, tial cxi tiu tero farigxos via hereda posedajxo.

15 Jen estas la limo de la lando:sur la norda rando, komencante de la Granda Maro, gxi iras tra HXetlon en la direkto al Cedad;

16 tra HXamat, Berota, Sibraim, kiu estas inter la limo de Damasko kaj la limo de HXamat, gxis HXacer-Tihxon, kiu trovigxas cxe la limo de HXavran.

17 Kaj la limo estos de la maro gxis HXacar-Enan apud la limo de Damasko, kaj gxis la norda Cafon kaj la limo de HXamat. Tio estas la rando norda.

18 Kaj la orientan randon mezuru inter HXavran kaj Damasko, inter Gilead kaj la lando de Izrael, laux Jordan, de la limo gxis la orienta maro; tio estas la rando orienta.

19 La suda rando estas de Tamar gxis la Akvo de Malpaco apud Kadesx, laux la torento gxis la Granda Maro; tio estas la rando suda.

20 La okcidenta rando estas la Granda Maro, gxis la komenco de HXamat; tio estas la rando okcidenta.

21 Kaj dividu inter vi cxi tiun landon laux la triboj de Izrael.

22 Kaj dividu gxin lote al vi, kaj ankaux al la fremduloj, kiuj logxas inter vi kaj kiuj naskis infanojn inter vi; ili devas esti por vi kiel indigxenoj inter la Izraelidoj, kune kun vi ili devas ricevi lote heredan posedajxon inter la triboj de Izrael.

23 En tiu tribo, inter kiu eklogxis la fremdulo, tie donu al li lian heredan posedajxon, diras la Sinjoro, la Eternulo.
