47:8 He said to me, “These waters go out toward the eastern region and flow down into the Arabah; when they enter the Dead Sea, 1 where the sea is stagnant, 2 the waters become fresh. 3 47:9 Every living creature which swarms where the river 4 flows will live; there will be many fish, for these waters flow there. It will become fresh 5 and everything will live where the river flows.
