47:9 Every living creature which swarms where the river 1 flows will live; there will be many fish, for these waters flow there. It will become fresh 2 and everything will live where the river flows.
47:10 Fishermen will stand beside it; from Engedi to En-eglaim they will spread nets. They will catch many kinds of fish, like the fish of the Great Sea. 3
1 tn Heb “two rivers,” perhaps under the influence of Zech 14:8. The translation follows the LXX and other ancient versions in reading the singular, which is demanded by the context (see vv. 5-7, 9b, 12).
2 tn Heb “will be healed.”
3 sn The Great Sea refers to the Mediterranean Sea (also in vv. 15, 19, 20).
