1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 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 your inheritance; the land of Canaan with all her coasts. 3 And your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, so that your south quarter shall be from the side of the salt sea eastward, 4 and shall fetch a compass from the south up to Akrabbim, and reach to Zin. And it shall go out on the south side of Kadesh Barnea, and go out also at Hazaraddar, and go along to Azmon. 5 And shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and shall go out at the sea. 6 And your west quarter shall be the great sea, which coast shall be your west coast. 7 And this shall be your north quarter: ye shall compass from the great sea unto mount Hor. 8 And from mount Hor, ye shall compass and go unto Hamath, and the end of the coast shall be at Zeded, 9 and the coast shall reach out to Ziphron and go out at Hazarenan. And this shall be your north quarter. 10 And ye shall compass your east quarter from Hazarenan to Shepham. 11 And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain. And then descend and go out at the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward. 12 And then go down along by Jordan, and leave at the salt sea. And this shall be your land with all the coasts thereof round about.'"
13 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, "This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, and which the LORD commanded to give unto nine tribes and a half: 14 for the tribe of the children of Reuben have received, in the households of their fathers; and the tribe of the children of Gad in their fathers' households; and the half tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance - 15 that is, to wit, two tribes and a half have received their inheritance on the other side of Jordan by Jericho eastward, toward the sun-rising."
16 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying, 17 "These are the names of the men, which shall divide the land to inherit among you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun. 18 And ye shall take also a lord of every tribe to divide the land, 19 whose names are these: in the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh; 20 and in the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud; 21 and in the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon; 22 and in the tribe of the children of Dan, the lord Bukki the son of Jogli; 23 and among the children of Joseph: in the tribe of the children of Manasseh, the lord Hanniel the son of Ephod; 24 and in the tribe of the children of Ephraim, the lord Kemuel the son of Shiphtan; 25 and in the tribe of the sons of Zebulon, the lord Elizaphan the son of Parnach; 26 and in the tribe of the children of Issachar, the lord Paltiel the son of Azzan; 27 and in the tribe of the sons of Asher, the lord Ahihud the son of Shelomi; 28 and in the tribe of the children of Naphtali, the lord Pedahel the son of Ammihud."
