To a larger group give a larger inheritance, and to a smaller group a smaller one; each is to receive its inheritance according to the number of those listed.
Be sure that the land is distributed by lot. What each group inherits will be according to the names for its ancestral tribe.
Each inheritance is to be distributed by lot among the larger and smaller groups.”
