Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance
Having the command and authority of God for it, he was to set about it at once, with all diligence and application:
unto the nine tribes:
of Judah, Simeon, Benjamin, Dan, Ephraim, Zebulun, Issachar, Asher, and Naphtali, in which order they are placed, when the Lord gave to Moses the names of the men that should divide the land under Eleazar and Joshua, ( Numbers 34:16-28 ) ;
and the half tribe of Manasseh;
that half which had no inheritance on the other side Jordan, and for which a prince of the children of Joseph was appointed to divide, ( Numbers 34:23 ) .
