Moses spoke to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, saying, "This is the thing which Yahweh has commanded.
that the princes of Israel, the heads of their fathers' houses, offered. These were the princes of the tribes. These are they who were over those who were numbered:
Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
With you there shall be a man of every tribe; everyone head of his fathers' house.
"These are the names of the men who shall divide the land to you for inheritance: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.
Take wise men of understanding and well known according to your tribes, and I will make them heads over you."
