Ezekiel 47:13-21

Division of the Land

13Thus says the Lord  God: “This is the boundary
Probable reading; Hebrew The valley of the boundary
by which b  you shall divide the land for inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel. c  Joseph shall have two portions.
14And you shall divide equally what d  I swore e  to give to your fathers. f  This land shall fall to you as your inheritance.

15This shall be the boundary of the land: On the north side, from g  the Great Sea h  by way of Hethlon to Lebo-hamath, and on to i  Zedad
Septuagint; Hebrew the entrance of Zedad, Hamath
16 k  Berothah, Sibraim (which lies on the border between l  Damascus and m  Hamath), as far as Hazer-hatticon, which is on the border of Hauran. 17So the boundary shall run from the sea to n  Hazar-enan, which is on the northern border of Damascus, with the border of Hamath to the north.
The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain
This shall be the north side.
Probable reading; Hebrew and as for the north side

18“On the east side, the boundary shall run between Hauran and Damascus; along the Jordan between q  Gilead and the land of Israel; to r  the eastern sea and as far as Tamar.
Compare Syriac; Hebrew  to the eastern sea you shall measure
This shall be the east side.

19“On the south side, it shall run from t  Tamar as far as u  the waters of Meribah-kadesh, from there along v  the Brook of Egypt
Hebrew lacks  of Egypt
to x  the Great Sea. This shall be the south side.

20“On the west side, the Great Sea shall be the boundary to a point y  opposite Lebo-hamath. This shall be the west side.

21 z  “So you shall divide this land among you according to the tribes of Israel.
