You are to write a description of the land in seven parts and bring the description here to me, and I will cast lots for you here before Yahweh our God. Bible

“here.” In Shiloh where the Tent of Meeting was at the time.

“cast lots.” The Hebrew is “throw a lot,” but the singular verb is likely a collective singular. By using the lot, the decision about which tribe got which land area was up to Yahweh (cp. Prov. 16:33).
