Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

The rivers - literally, as in the margin. Perhaps with reference to the circumstance that this "brook or river" is to come into the Dead Sea through the same plain as the Jordan. The one river (Jordan) always flowed, but now, when another river comes in, and "two rivers" flow into the sea, the waters shall be healed.

From thence stands Massada, a castle in a rock, and this castle not far from the Asphaltites." Solinus,
