These are the names of the men which shall divide the land unto you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.

are the names
It is worthy of remark, that Moses does not follow any order hitherto used in arranging the tribes, but places them exactly in the order in which they possessed the land, and according to their fraternal relationship. Judah is first, having the first lot, in the South (Jos ch. 15); and next to him is Simeon, because his inheritance was "within the inheritance of the children of Judah
" ( Joshua 19:1 .) Benjamin, the third, had his portion between "Judah and the children of Joseph." ( Joshua 18:11 .) Dan was the fourth, and his lot was westward of
Benjamin ( Joshua 19:40 ,41.) Manasseh and his brother Ephraim had their inheritances behind that of Benjamin
( Joshua 16:7 .)Next these dwelt Zebulun and Issachar, ( Joshua 19:10-17 ;)and then Asher and Naphtali
( Joshua 19:24-32 .)
