The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea are made of the same water.  It flows down, clear and cool, from the heights of Mt. Hermon and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon. 
 
The Sea of Galilee makes a beauty of it, for the Sea of Galilee has an outlet. It gets to give. 
 
It gathers in its riches that it may pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain. 
 
But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror: For the Dead Sea has no outlet. It gets to keep.
