This is what the Lord Yahweh says: This will be the border by which you will divide the land for inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel. Joseph will have two portions. Bible see other translations

“This will be the border.” The subject now switches from the river flowing from Jerusalem to the borders of the Promised Land in the Millennial Kingdom. It would have been helpful if the people who originally added chapters to the Bible made this a new chapter, including from Ezekiel 47:13 through chapter 48, which deals with land areas.
