Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 47:9

_ _ rivers — in Hebrew,two rivers.” Hence Hebrew expositors think that the waters from the temple were divided into two branches, the one emptying itself into the eastern or Dead Sea, the other into the western or Mediterranean. So Zechariah 14:8. However, though this probably is covertly implied in the Hebrew dual, the flowing of the waters into the Dead Sea only is expressed. Compare Ezekiel 47:8, “waters ... healed,” which can apply only to it, not to the Mediterranean: also Ezekiel 47:10, “fish as the fish of the great sea”; the Dead Sea, when healed, containing fish, as the Mediterranean does.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 47:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 47:9

Shall live — Be preserved alive, and thrive, whereas no fish can live in the Dead — sea. For they — The poisonous waters of the Dead — sea shall be made wholesome for fish. Shall live — Thrive, and multiply in the virtue of the healing streams. Thus is the fruitfulness of the grace of God in the church set forth.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezekiel 47:9

And it shall come to pass, [that] every thing that liveth, which moveth, wherever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come there: for they shall be (e) healed; and every thing shall live where the river cometh.

(e) The waters which by nature are salt and unwholesome will be made sweet and comfortable.
