|Numbers 34 |
1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2 "Command the children of Israel, and say to them, When you come into the land of Canaan, (this is the land that shall fall to you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with its coasts),
3 Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward.
4 Your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin; and from there to the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:
5 The border shall turn from Azmon to the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be to the [Mediterranean] sea.
6 As for the western border, you shall have the great sea for a border; this shall be your west border.
7 This shall be your north border: from the great sea you draw a line to mount Hor;
8 From mount Hor you draw a line of your border to the entrance of Hamath; and the extension of the border shall be to Zedad.
9 The border shall go on to Ziphron, and it shall extend to Hazarenan; this shall be your north border.
10 You draw a line out for your east border from Hazarenan 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 to the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward.
12 The border shall go down to Jordan River, and it shall extend to the salt sea; this shall be your land with its surrounding coasts."
13 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, "This is the land which you shall inherit by lot, which the LORD commanded to give to the nine tribes, and to the half tribe;
14 For the tribe of the children of Reuben, according to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to the house of their fathers, have received their inheritance; and half the tribe of Manasseh has received their inheritance.
15 The two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising."
16 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
17 "These are the names of the men that shall divide the land to you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.
18 And you shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the land by inheritance.
19 And the names of the men are these: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.
20 And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud.
21 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon.
22 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli.
23 The prince of the children of Joseph, for the tribe of the children of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod.
24 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Ephraim, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan.
25 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Zebulun, Elizaphan the son of Parnach.
26 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Issachar, Paltiel the son of Azzan.
27 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi.
28 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Naphtali, Pedahel the son of Ammihud."
29 These are they whom the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance to the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.
