Numbers 34



The Land Of Canaan Is Divided

1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

1 The LORD told Moses,

1 And the Lord said to Moses,

2 "Command the sons of Israel and say to them, 'When you enter the land of Canaan, this is the land that shall fall to you as an inheritance, even the land of Canaan according to its borders.

2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)

2 "Issue these orders to the Israelis: "You're about to enter the land of Canaan. This territory has been apportioned to you as your inheritance: the entire land of Canaan, all the way to its borders.'"

2 Command the Israelites, When you come into the land of Canaan (which is the land that shall be yours for an inheritance, the land of Canaan according to its boundaries),

3 'Your southern sector shall extend from the wilderness of Zin along the side of Edom, and your southern border shall extend from the end of the Salt Sea eastward.

3 Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward:

3 ""To your south is the Wilderness of Zin, bordering Edom. Your southern border is to extend east toward the far end of the Dead Sea,

3 Your south side shall be from the Wilderness of Zin along the side of Edom, and your southern boundary from the end of the Salt [Dead] Sea eastward.

4 'Then your border shall turn direction from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim and continue to Zin, and its termination shall be to the south of Kadesh-barnea; and it shall reach Hazaraddar and continue to Azmon.

4 And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:

4 then it is to turn southward to the ascent of Akrabbim, cross Zin, and then run south of Kadesh-barnea and proceed from there to Hazar-addar and across to Azmon.

4 Your boundary shall turn south of the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin, and its end shall be south of Kadesh-barnea. Then it shall go on to Hazar-addar and pass on to Azmon.

5 'The border shall turn direction from Azmon to the brook of Egypt, and its termination shall be at the sea.

5 And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea.

5 Then the border is to turn from Azmon toward the wadi of Egypt and from there to the Mediterranean Sea.'"

5 Then the boundary shall turn from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and it shall terminate at the [Mediterranean] Sea.

The Western Border Of The Land

6 'As for the western border, you shall have the Great Sea, that is, its coastline; this shall be your west border.

6 And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border.

6 ""The western border is to be the Mediterranean Sea. This is to be the western border.'"

6 For the western boundary you shall have the Great Sea and its coast.

The Northern Border Of The Land

7 'And this shall be your north border: you shall draw your border line from the Great Sea to Mount Hor.

7 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount Hor:

7 ""Your northern border is to extend from the Mediterranean Sea to Mount Hor.

7 And this shall be your north border: from the Great Sea mark out your boundary line to Mount Hor;

8 'You shall draw a line from Mount Hor to the Lebo-hamath, and the termination of the border shall be at Zedad;

8 From mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to Zedad:

8 From Mount Hor, you are to mark out the entrance to Hammath, with the border running through Zedad,

8 From Mount Hor you shall mark out your boundary to the entrance of Hamath, and its end shall be at Zedad;

9 and the border shall proceed to Ziphron, and its termination shall be at Hazar-enan. This shall be your north border.

9 And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border.

9 then through Ziphron, and then to Hazar-enan. This is to be the northern border.'"

9 Then the northern boundary shall go on to Ziphron, and the end of it shall be at Hazar-enan.

The Eastern Border Of The Land

10 'For your eastern border you shall also draw a line from Hazar-enan to Shepham,

10 And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to Shepham:

10 ""You are to mark the border on the east from Hazar-enan to Shepham.

10 You shall mark out your eastern boundary from Hazar-enan to Shepham;

11 and the border shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain; and the border shall go down and reach to the slope on the east side of the Sea of Chinnereth.

11 And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward:

11 The border is then to extend from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain, then to the Sea of Chinnereth on the east.

11 The boundary shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain and shall descend and reach to the shoulder of the Sea of Chinnereth [the Sea of Galilee] on the east;

12 'And the border shall go down to the Jordan and its termination shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land according to its borders all around.'"

12 And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about.

12 The border is to continue along the Jordan River all the way to the Dead Sea. This is to be your land, as measured by its boundaries.'"

12 And the boundary shall go down to the Jordan, and the end shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land with its boundaries all around.

13 So Moses commanded the sons of Israel, saying, "This is the land that you are to apportion by lot among you as a possession, which the LORD has commanded to give to the nine and a half tribes.

13 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the LORD commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe:

13 Moses commanded the Israelis, "You are to inherit this land by lot, just as the LORD commanded to give it to the remaining nine and a half tribes.

13 Moses commanded the Israelites, This is the land you shall inherit by lot, which the Lord has commanded to give to the nine tribes and the half-tribe [of Manasseh],

14 "For the tribe of the sons of Reuben have received theirs according to their fathers' households, and the tribe of the sons of Gad according to their fathers' households, and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received their possession.

14 For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to the house of their fathers, have received their inheritance; and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance:

14 The tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh, as defined by their ancestral houses, have received their inheritance.

14 For the tribes of the sons of Reuben and of Gad by their fathers' houses have received their inheritance, and also the half-tribe of Manasseh.

15 "The two and a half tribes have received their possession across the Jordan opposite Jericho, eastward toward the sunrising."

15 The two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising.

15 These two and a half tribes received their inheritance this side of the Jordan River, east of Jericho, facing the rising sun."

15 The two and a half tribes have received their inheritance east of the Jordan at Jericho, toward the sunrise.
