And these are the countries which the children of Israelinherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for inheritance to them.
By lot was their inheritance, as the LORDcommanded by the hand of Moses, for the ninetribes, and for the halftribe.3
For Moses had given the inheritance of twotribes and an halftribe on the other sideJordan: but unto the Levites he gave none inheritanceamong them.
For the children of Joseph were twotribes,Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save cities to dwell in, with their suburbs for their cattle and for their substance.5
As the LORDcommandedMoses, so the children of Israeldid , and they divided the land.
