Instruction for Apportioning Canaan

1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Command the sons of Israel and say to them, 'When you enter 1the land of Canaan, this is the land that shall fall to you as an inheritance, even the land of Canaan according to its borders. 3 '2Your southern asector shall bextend from the wilderness of Zin along the side of Edom, and your southern border shall cextend from the end of the Salt Sea 3eastward. 4 'Then your border shall turn direction from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim and dcontinue to Zin, and its etermination shall be to the south of 4Kadesh-barnea; and it shall freach Hazaraddar and gcontinue to Azmon. 5 'The border shall turn direction from Azmon to the brook of Egypt, and its termination shall be at 5the sea. 6 'As for the western border, you shall have the Great Sea, that is, its hcoastline; this shall be your west border. 7 '6And this shall be your north border: you shall draw your border line from the Great Sea to Mount Hor. 8 'You shall draw a line from Mount Hor to 7the iLebo-hamath, and the termination of the border shall be at Zedad; 9 and the border shall proceed to Ziphron, and its termination shall be at Hazar-enan. This shall be your north border. 10 'For your eastern border you shall also draw a line from Hazar-enan to Shepham, 11 and the border shall go down from Shepham to 8Riblah on the east side of Ain; and the border shall go down and reach to the jslope on the east side of the Sea of 9Chinnereth. 12 'And the border shall go down to the Jordan and its termination shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land according to its borders all around.' " 13 So Moses commanded the sons of Israel, saying, "10This is the land that you are to apportion by lot among you as a possession, which the LORD has commanded to give to the nine and a half tribes. 14 "11For the tribe of the sons of Reuben have received theirs according to their fathers' households, and the tribe of the sons of Gad according to their fathers' households, and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received their possession. 15 "The two and a half tribes have received their possession across the Jordan opposite Jericho, eastward toward the sunrising." 16 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 17 "12These are the names of the men who shall apportion the land to you for inheritance: Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun. 18 "You shall take one leader of every tribe to apportion the land for inheritance. 19 "These are the names of the men: of the tribe of 13Judah, 14Caleb the son of Jephunneh. 20 "Of the tribe of the sons of 15Simeon, Samuel the son of Ammihud. 21 "Of the tribe of 16Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon. 22 "Of the tribe of the sons of Dan a leader, Bukki the son of Jogli. 23 "Of the sons of Joseph: of the tribe of the sons of Manasseh a leader, Hanniel the son of Ephod. 24 "Of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim a leader, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan. 25 "Of the tribe of the sons of Zebulun a leader, Elizaphan the son of Parnach. 26 "Of the tribe of the sons of Issachar a leader, Paltiel the son of Azzan. 27 "Of the tribe of the sons of Asher a leader, Ahihud the son of Shelomi. 28 "Of the tribe of the sons of Naphtali a leader, Pedahel the son of Ammihud." 29 These are those whom the LORD commanded to apportion the inheritance to the sons of Israel in the land of Canaan.
