The remaining tribes of Israel inherited land in Canaan as allotted by Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the tribal leaders.
These nine and a half tribes received their inheritance by means of sacred lots, in accordance with the LORD's command through Moses.
Moses had already given an inheritance of land to the two and a half tribes on the east side of the Jordan River.
The tribe of Joseph had become two separate tribes -- Manasseh and Ephraim. And the Levites were given no land at all, only towns to live in and the surrounding pasturelands for their flocks and herds.
So the distribution of the land was in strict accordance with the LORD's instructions to Moses.
