And these [are the countries] which the children of Israel

Of which an exact account is given in the following chapters, particularly in the ( Joshua 15:1-19:51 ) ;
which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of
the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for an
inheritance unto them;
namely, ten princes, one of each tribe, who, with Eleazar and Joshua, were appointed of the Lord by name to do this business, even seven years ago, before their entrance into the land of Canaan, ( Numbers 34:17-29 ) .
