Números 34

1 Jehovah gave Moses

2 the following instructions for the people of Israel: »When you enter Canaan, the land I am giving you, these are the borders of your territory.

3 »The southern border will extend from the wilderness of Zin along the border of Edom. It will begin on the east at the southern end of the Dead Sea.

4 »It will turn southward toward Akrabbim Pass and continue on through Zin as far south as Kadesh Barnea. It will turn northwest to Hazar Addar and on to Azmon,

5 where it will turn toward the valley at the border of Egypt and end at the Mediterranean.

6 »The western border will be the Mediterranean Sea, it will be the western border.

7 »The northern border will follow a line from the Mediterranean to Mount Hor

8 and from there to Hamath Pass. It will continue to Zedad

9 and to Ziphron, and will end at Hazar Enan.

10 »The eastern border will follow a line from Hazar Enan to Shepham.

11 »It will then go south to Harbel, east of Ain, and on to the hills on the eastern shore of Lake Galilee,

12 then south along the Jordan River to the Dead Sea. These will be the four borders of your land.«

13 Moses said to the Israelites: »This is the land you will receive by drawing lots. This is the land that Jehovah has assigned to the nine and one-half tribes.

14 »The tribes of Reuben and Gad and the eastern half of Manasseh have received their property, divided according to their families,

15 on the eastern side of the Jordan, opposite Jericho.«

16 Jehovah said to Moses:

17 »These are the names of the men who will divide the land for you: the priest Eleazar and Joshua son of Nun.

18 »You must also take one leader from each tribe to divide the land.

19 These are their names: Caleb son of Jephunneh, from the tribe of Judah,

20 »Shemuel son of Ammihud, from the tribe of Simeon;

21 »Elidad son of Kislon, from the tribe of Benjamin;

22 »Bukki son of Jogli, the leader of the tribe of Dan;

23 »Hanniel son of Ephod, the leader of the tribe of Manasseh;

24 »Kemuel son of Shiphtan, the leader of the tribe of Ephraim; Manasseh and Ephraim are Joseph’s descendants.

25 »Elizaphan son of Parnach, the leader of the tribe of Zebulun;

26 »Paltiel son of Azzan, the leader of the tribe of Issachar;

27 »Ahihud son of Shelomi, the leader of the tribe of Asher;

28 »Pedahel son of Ammihud, the leader of the tribe of Naphtali.«

29 Jehovah commanded these men to divide Canaan for the Israelites.
