Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 47:8

_ _ the desert — or “plain,” Hebrew, Arabah (Deuteronomy 3:17; Deuteronomy 4:49; Joshua 3:16), which is the name still given to the valley of the Jordan and the plain south of the Dead Sea, and extending to the Elanitic gulf of the Red Sea.

_ _ the sea — the Dead Sea. “The sea” noted as covering with its waters the guilty cities of the plain, Sodom and Gomorrah. In its bituminous waters no vegetable or animal life is said to be found. But now death is to give place to life in Judea, and throughout the world, as symbolized by the healing of these death-pervaded waters covering the doomed cities. Compare as to “the sea” in general, regarded as a symbol of the troubled powers of nature, disordered by the fall, henceforth to rage no more, Revelation 21:1.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 47:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 47:8

The sea — The Dead — sea, or lake of Sodom. Shall be healed — The waters of the sea shall be healed, made wholesome. So where the grace of God from his temple and altar flows, it heals the corrupt nature of man, and renders barren terrible deserts, as a land of waters and gardens.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 47:8

Then said he to me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the (d) sea: [which being] brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.

(d) Showing that the abundance of these graces would be so great, that all the world would be full of it, which is here meant by the Persian sea, or Genezareth, and the sea called Mediterranean, (Zechariah 14:8).
