SEV Biblia, Chapter 47:1 ¶ Me hizo tornar luego a la entrada de la Casa; y he aquí aguas que salían de debajo del umbral de la casa hacia el oriente; porque la fachada de la casa estaba al oriente; y las aguas descendían de debajo, hacia el lado derecho de la casa, al mediodía del altar.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezekiel 47:1 Verse 1. Behold, waters issued out from under the threshold] Ezekiel, after having made the whole compass of the court of the people, is brought back by the north gate into the courts of the priests; and, having reached the gate of the temple, he saw waters which had their spring under the threshold of that gate, that looked towards the east; and which passing to the south of the altar of burnt-offerings on the right of the temple, ran from the west to the east, that they might fall into the brook Kidron, and thence be carried into the Dead Sea. Literally, no such waters were ever in the temple; and because there were none, Solomon had what is called the brazen sea made, which held water for the use of the temple. It is true that the water which supplied this sea might have been brought by pipes to the place: but a fountain producing abundance of water was not there, and could not be there, on the top of such a hill; and consequently these waters, as well as those spoken of in Joel iii. 18, and in Zech. xiv. 8, are to be understood spiritually or typically; and indeed the whole complexion of the place here shows, that they are thus to be understood. Taken in this view, I shall proceed to apply the whole of this vision to the effusion of light and salvation by the outpouring of the Spirit of God under the Gospel dispensation, by which the knowledge of the true God was multiplied in the earth; and have only one previous remark to make, that the farther the waters flowed from the temple, the deeper they grew.
With respect to the phraseology of this chapter, it may be said that St. John had it particularly in view while he wrote his celebrated description of the paradise of God, Rev. xxii. The prophet may therefore be referring to the same thing which the apostle describes, viz., the grace of the Gospel, and its effects in the world.
Matthew Henry Commentary
These waters signify the gospel of Christ, which went forth from Jerusalem, and spread into the countries about; also the gifts an powers of the Holy Ghost which accompanied it, by virtue of which i spread far, and produced blessed effects. Christ is the Temple; and he is the Door; from him the living waters flow, out of his pierced side They are increasing waters. Observe the progress of the gospel in the world, and the process of the work of grace in the heart; attend the motions of the blessed Spirit under Divine guidance. If we search int the things of God, we find some things plain and easy to be understood as the waters that were but to the ankles; others more difficult, whic require a deeper search, as the waters to the knees, or the loins; an some quite beyond our reach, which we cannot penetrate; but must, a St. Paul did, adore the depth, Rom. 11. It is wisdom to begin with tha which is most easy, before we proceed to that which is dark and hard to be understood. The promises of the sacred word, and the privileges of believers, as shed abroad in their souls by the quickening Spirit abound where the gospel is preached; they nourish and delight the soul of men; they never fade nor wither, nor are exhausted. Even the leave serve as medicines to the soul: the warnings and reproofs of the word though less pleasant than Divine consolations, tend to heal the diseases of the soul. All who believe in Christ, and are united to his by his sanctifying Spirit, will share the privileges of Israelites There is room in the church, and in heaven, for all who seek the blessings of that new covenant of which Christ is Mediator __________________________________________________________________
