1Yahweh spoke to Moses and said, 2'Give the Israelites this order. Say: "When you enter the country (Canaan), this will be the countrywhich forms your heritage. This is Canaan as defined by its boundaries: 3"The southern part of your country wil start from the desert of Zin, on the borders of Edom. Yoursouthern boundary wil start on the east at the end of the Salt Sea. 4It wil then turn south towards the Ascent of the Scorpions and go by Zin to end in the south atKadesh-Barnea. It wil then run towards Hazar-Addar and pass through Azmon. 5From Azmon the boundary wil turn towards the Torrent of Egypt and end at the Sea. 6"Your seaboard wil be on the Great Sea; this will be your western boundary. 7"Your northern boundary wil be as fol ows: you wil draw a line from the Great Sea to Mount Hor, 8then from Mount Hor you wil draw a line to the Pass of Hamath, and the boundary will end at Zedad. 9From there it wil run on to Ziphron and end at Hazar-Enan. This wil be your northern boundary. 10"You will then draw your eastern boundary from Hazar-Enan to Shepham. 11The boundary wil run down from Shepham towards Riblah on the east side of Ain. Further down itwil keep to the eastern shore of the Sea of Chinnereth. 12The frontier wil then fol ow the Jordan and end at the Salt Sea. "Such wil be your country with theboundaries surrounding it." ' 13Moses then gave the Israelites this order: 'This is the country, where your heritages wil be assignedby lot, and which Yahweh has ordered to be given to the nine tribes and the half-tribe, 14for the tribe of the Reubenites with their families and the tribe of the Gadites with their families havealready received their heritage; the half-tribe of Manasseh has also received its heritage. 15These two tribes and the half-tribe have received their heritage on the other side of the Jordan byJericho, to the east, towards the sunrise.' 16Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 17'Here are the names of the men who wil divide the country up for you: the priest Eleazar andJoshua son of Nun, 18and you wil take one leader from each tribe to divide the country up into heritages. 19Here are the names of these men: 'For the tribe of Judah, Caleb son of Jephunneh; 20'for the tribe of the Simeonites, Shemuel son of Ammihud; 21'for the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad son of Chislon; 22'for the tribe of the Danites, the leader Bukki son of Jogli; 23'for the sons of Joseph: for the tribe of Manasseh, the leader Hanniel son of Ephod; 24'for the tribe of the Ephraimites, the leader Kemuel son of Shiphtan; 25'for the tribe of the Zebulunites, the leader Elizaphan son of Parnach; 26'for the tribe of the Issacharites, the leader Paltiel son of Azzan; 27'for the tribe of the Asherites, the leader Ahihud son of Shelomi; 28'for the tribe of the Naphtalites, the leader Pedahel son of Ammihud.' 29These were the men whom Yahweh ordered to divide Canaan into heritages for the Israelites.
