So you are to divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel. Bible

“according to the tribes of Israel.” This quick summary is explained in detail in the next chapter. There will be 12 tribal areas, because the tribe of “Joseph,” one of the 12 sons of Jacob, had two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, and each of them will get a tribal area equal to the land area the other tribes get, and Levi will not get a land area like the other tribes but will have a holy area north of the Temple (Ezek. 48:13-14).
