Appoint three men from each tribe. I will send them out to make a survey of the land and to write a description of it,1 according to the inheritance of each.2 Then they will return to me.
You are to divide the land into seven parts. Judah is to remain in its territory on the south3 and the house of Joseph in its territory on the north.46
After you have written descriptions of the seven parts of the land, bring them here to me and I will cast lots5 for you in the presence of the LORD our God.
