Then the LORD said to Moses,
"Give these instructions to the Israelites: When you come into the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your special possession, these will be the boundaries.
The southern portion of your country will extend from the wilderness of Zin, along the edge of Edom. The southern boundary will begin on the east at the Dead Sea. a4
It will then run south past Scorpion Pass b in the direction of Zin. Its southernmost point will be Kadesh-barnea, from which it will go to Hazar-addar, and on to Azmon.
From Azmon the boundary will turn toward the brook of Egypt and end at the Mediterranean Sea. c"
"Your western boundary will be the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea."
"Your northern boundary will begin at the Mediterranean Sea and run eastward to Mount Hor,
then to Lebo-hamath, and on through Zedad
and Ziphron to Hazar-enan. This will be your northern boundary."
"The eastern boundary will start at Hazar-enan and run south to Shepham,
then down to Riblah on the east side of Ain. From there the boundary will run down along the eastern edge of the Sea of Galilee, d12
and then along the Jordan River to the Dead Sea. These are the boundaries of your land."
Then Moses told the Israelites, "This is the territory you are to divide among yourselves by sacred lot. The LORD commands that the land be divided up among the nine and a half remaining tribes.
The families of the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh have already received their inheritance of land
on the east side of the Jordan River, across from Jericho."
And the LORD said to Moses,
"These are the men who are to divide the land among the people: Eleazar the priest and Joshua son of Nun.
Also enlist one leader from each tribe to help them with the task.
These are the tribes and the names of the leaders: Tribe - Leader Judah - Caleb son of Jephunneh
Simeon - Shemuel son of Ammihud
Benjamin - Elidad son of Kislon
Dan - Bukki son of Jogli
Manasseh son of Joseph - Hanniel son of Ephod
Ephraim son of Joseph - Kemuel son of Shiphtan
Zebulun - Elizaphan son of Parnach
Issachar - Paltiel son of Azzan
Asher - Ahihud son of Shelomi
Naphtali - Pedahel son of Ammihud
These are the men the LORD has appointed to oversee the dividing of the land of Canaan among the Israelites."
