Now these are the territories which the sons of Israelinherited in the land of Canaan, which1Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the ahouseholds of the tribes of the sons of Israelapportioned to them for an inheritance,
by the 2lot of their inheritance, as the LORDcommandedbthroughMoses, for the ninetribes and the half-tribe .
For 3Moses had given the inheritance of the twotribes and the half-tribebeyond the Jordan; but 4he did not give an inheritance to the Levitesamong them.
For the sons of Joseph were twotribes, 5Manasseh and Ephraim, and they did not give a portion to the Levites in the land, exceptcities to live in, with their pasturelands for their livestock and for their property.
5Thus the sons of Israeldidjust6as the LORD had commandedMoses, and they divided the land.
