And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying
Strictly enjoining them to observe what he was about to say to them:
this is the land which ye shall inherit by lot;
as above described and bounded:
which the Lord commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the
to the tribes of Judah, Simeon, Benjamin, Dan, Ephraim, Zebulun, Issachar, Asher, and Naphtali, and the half tribe of Manasseh; though this command is not before expressed, it is very probable it was delivered to Moses at the same time he had the mind of God concerning the settlement of the tribes of Reuben and Gad, and the other half tribe of Manasseh, on the other side Jordan; see ( Numbers 32:31 ) .
