1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said,
2 'Give the Israelites this order. Say: "When you enter the country (Canaan), this will be the country which forms your heritage. This is Canaan as defined by its boundaries:
Gen 17:8 Ps 105:11 Deut 1:7-8 1Pet 1:3-4 Acts 17:26 Acts 26:18 Eph 1:14
3 "The southern part of your country will start from the desert of Zin, on the borders of Edom. Your southern boundary will start on the east at the end of the Salt Sea.
Gen 14:3 Ezek 47:13 Exod 23:31 Ezek 47:8 Ezek 47:18-23 Josh 3:16 Josh 15:1-12
4 It will then turn south towards the Ascent of the Scorpions and go by Zin to end in the south at Kadesh-Barnea. It will then run towards Hazar-Addar and pass through Azmon.
Num 32:8 Josh 15:3-4 Judg 1:36 Num 13:21 Num 13:26 Num 20:1 Num 33:36-37
5 From Azmon the boundary will turn towards the Torrent of Egypt and end at the Sea.
Josh 15:4 Gen 15:18 1Kgs 8:65 Isa 27:12 Josh 15:47 Num 34:6-7
6 "Your seaboard will be on the Great Sea; this will be your western boundary.
Ezek 47:10 Ezek 47:15 Ezek 47:20 Josh 1:4 Josh 9:1 Josh 15:12 Josh 15:47
7 "Your northern boundary will be as follows: you will draw a line from the Great Sea to Mount Hor,
Num 33:37 Ezek 47:15-17 Num 34:3 Num 34:6 Num 34:9-10
8 then from Mount Hor you will draw a line to the Pass of Hamath, and the boundary will end at Zedad.
Num 13:21 2Kgs 14:25 2Sam 8:9 Ezek 47:15-20 Jer 39:5 Josh 13:5-6
9 From there it will run on to Ziphron and end at Hazar-Enan. This will be your northern boundary.
10 "You will then draw your eastern boundary from Hazar-Enan to Shepham.
11 The boundary will run down from Shepham towards Riblah on the east side of Ain. Further down it will keep to the eastern shore of the Sea of Chinnereth.
2Kgs 23:33 Deut 3:17 Josh 11:2 Josh 19:35 Luke 5:1 2Kgs 25:6 Jer 39:5-6
12 The frontier will then follow the Jordan and end at the Salt Sea. "Such will be your country with the boundaries surrounding it." '
Num 34:3 Gen 13:10 Gen 14:3 Gen 19:24-26
13 Moses then gave the Israelites this order: 'This is the country, where your heritages will be assigned by lot, and which Yahweh has ordered to be given to the nine tribes and the half-tribe,
Josh 14:1-5 Num 34:1
14 for the tribe of the Reubenites with their families and the tribe of the Gadites with their families have already received their heritage; the half-tribe of Manasseh has also received its heritage.
Num 32:33 Deut 3:12-17 Josh 13:8-12 Josh 14:2-3 Num 32:23
15 These two tribes and the half-tribe have received their heritage on the other side of the Jordan by Jericho, to the east, towards the sunrise.'
16 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
17 'Here are the names of the men who will divide the country up for you: the priest Eleazar and Joshua son of Nun,
Josh 14:1 Josh 19:51 Num 13:8 Num 13:16
18 and you will take one leader from each tribe to divide the country up into heritages.
19 Here are the names of these men: 'For the tribe of Judah, Caleb son of Jephunneh;
Num 26:65 Num 13:30 Deut 33:7 Gen 29:35 Num 14:6 Num 14:24 Num 14:30
20 'for the tribe of the Simeonites, Shemuel son of Ammihud;
21 'for the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad son of Chislon;
Gen 49:27 Ps 68:27
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.'
29 These were the men whom Yahweh ordered to divide Canaan into heritages for the Israelites.
