1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,
2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this [is] the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, [even] the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)
3 And your Southquarter shalbe from the wildernesse of Zin to the borders of Edom: so that your Southquarter shall be from the salt Sea coast Eastwarde:
4 And the border shall compasse you from the South to Maaleh-akrabbim, and reach to Zin, and goe out from the South to Kadesh-barnea: thence it shal stretch to Hazar-addar, & go along to Azmon.
5 And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea.
6 And [as for] the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border.
7 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount Hor:
8 From mount Hor ye shall point out till it come vnto Hamath, and the end of the coast shal be at Zedad.
9 And the coast shall reach out to Ziphron, & goe out at Hazar-enan. this shalbe your Northquarter.
10 And ye shall marke out your Eastquarter from Hazar-enan to Shepham.
11 And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward:
12 Also that border shall goe downe to Iorden, & leaue at the salt Sea. this shalbe your land with the coastes thereof round about.
13 Then Moses commaunded the children of Israel, saying, This is the lande which yee shall inherite by lot, which the Lord commaunded to giue vnto nine tribes and halfe the tribe.
14 For the tribe of the children of Reuben, according to the housholdes of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad, according to their fathers housholdes, and halfe the tribe of Manasseh, haue receiued their inheritance.
15 Two tribes and an halfe tribe haue receiued their inheritance on this side of Iorden toward Iericho full East.
16 Againe the Lord spake to Moses, saying,
17 These are the names of the men which shall deuide ye land vnto you: Eleazar the Priest, and Ioshua the sonne of Nun.
18 And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the land by inheritance.
19 The names also of the men are these: Of the tribe of Iudah, Caleb ye sonne of Iephunneh.
20 And of the tribe of the sonnes of Simeon, Shemuel the sonne of Ammihud.
21 Of the tribe of Beniamin, Elidad the sonne of Chislon.
22 Also of the tribe of the sonnes of Dan, the prince Bukki, the sonne of Iogli.
23 Of the sonnes of Ioseph: of the tribe of the sonnes of Manasseh, the prince Hanniel the sonne of Ephod.
24 And of the tribe of the sonnes of Ephraim, the prince Kemuel, the sonne of Shiphtan.
25 Of the tribe also of the sonnes of Zebulun, the prince Elizaphan, the sonne of Parnach.
26 So of the tribe of the sonnes of Issachar, the prince Paltiel the sonne of Azzan.
27 Of the tribe also of the sonnes of Asher, the prince Ahihud, the sonne of Shelomi.
28 And of the tribe of the sonnes of Naphtali, the prince Pedahel, the sonne of Ammihud.
29 These [are they] whom the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.
