because the families of the tribe of Reuben, the tribe of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance.1015
These two and a half tribes have received their inheritance on the east side of the Jordan of Jericho,c toward the sunrise."

"These are the names of the men who are to assign the land for you as an inheritance: Eleazar the priest and Joshua11 son of Nun.
