1Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
2“Command the children of Israel and tell them: When you come into the land of Canaan, this is the land that will fall to you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan according to its borders:
3“Your south quarter will be from the wilderness of Zin along by the side of Edom, and your south border will be from the end of the Salt Sea eastward;
4and your border will turn about southward of the ascent of Akrabbim and pass along to Zin, and the goings out of it will be southward of Kadesh-barnea; and it will go out to Hazar Addar, and pass along to Azmon,
5and the border will turn about from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and the goings out of it will be at the sea.
7“This will be your north border: from the Great Sea you will mark out for you Mount Hor;
8from Mount Hor you will mark out to Lebo-hamath, and the goings out of the border will be at Zedad;
9and the border will go out to Ziphron, and the goings out of it will be at Hazar Enan. This will be your north border.
10“You will mark out your east border from Hazar Enan to Shepham,
11and the border will go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain; and the border will go down, and will reach to the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward;
12and the border will go down to the Jordan, and the goings out of it will be at the Salt Sea. This will be your land according to its borders around it.”
13Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, “This is the land that you are to inherit by lot, which Yahweh has commanded to give to the nine tribes and to the half-tribe;
14for the tribe of the children of Reuben according to their fathers’ houses and the tribe of the children of Gad according to their fathers’ houses have received, and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received, their inheritance;
15the two tribes and the half-tribe have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan at Jericho eastward, toward the sunrise.”
16Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
17“These are the names of the men who are to divide the land to you for inheritance: Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun.
18You are to take one chief of every tribe to divide the land for inheritance.
19These are the names of the men:
Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh;
of the tribe of the children of Manasseh a chief, Hanniel the son of Ephod;
