Genesis 2:10-14
King James Version (KJV)
And a river went out of Eden to water the garden;
and from thence it parted, and became into four heads.
11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land 
of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that 
compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward 
the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

Psalm 46

[1] God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
[2] Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the 
mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
[3] Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake 
with the swelling thereof. Selah.
[4] There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the 
holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

In Revelation 22:
[1] And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, 
proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. [2] In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there 
the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit 
every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

From Jerusalem Plate 98:
The Four Living Creatures Chariots of Humanity Divine
In beautiful Paradises expand These are the Four Rivers of
And the Four Faces of Humanity fronting the Four Cardinal Points
Of Heaven going forward forward irresistible from Eternity to


And they conversed together in Visionary forms dramatic which
Redounded from their Tongues in thunderous majesty, in Visions

(Erdman 257)
