1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 Command the sons 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, the land of Canaan with her borders.

3 And the south quarter for you shall be from the wilderness of Zin by the hands of Edom, and for you the south border shall be the edge of the Salt Sea eastward;

4 and the border for you shall turn·​·around from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and cross·​·over toward Zin; and its outgoings shall be from the south to Kadesh-barnea, and shall go·​·out to Chazar-addar, and cross·​·over toward Azmon;

5 and the border shall turn·​·around from Azmon to the brook of Egypt, and the outgoing of it shall be toward the sea.

6 And as for the west border shall even be for you the great sea for a border; this shall be your west border.

7 And this shall be your north border; from the great sea you shall mark for you Mount Hor:

8 from Mount Hor you shall mark your border to the coming·​·in of Hamath; and the outgoings of the border shall be toward Zedad;

9 and the border shall go·​·out toward Ziphron, and the outgoings of it shall be at Chazar-enan; this shall be for you the border of the north.

10 And you shall mark for yourselves for a border towards the east, from Chazar-enan to Shepham;

11 and the border shall go·​·down from Shepham to Riblah, from the east to Ain; and the border shall go·​·down, and shall rub on the shoulder of the Sea of Chinnereth eastward;

12 and the border shall go·​·down to the Jordan, and the outgoings of it shall be at the Salt Sea; this shall be the land for you with her borders all around.

13 And Moses commanded the sons of Israel, saying, This is the land which you shall inherit by lot, which Jehovah commanded to give to the nine tribes and the half tribe;

14 for they have taken it; the tribe of the sons of the Reubenites as·​·to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the sons of the Gadites as·​·to the house of their fathers, and the half tribe of Manasseh, have taken their inheritance;

15 the two tribes and the half tribe have taken their inheritance from across the Jordan near Jericho toward the east, toward the sunrise.

16 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

17 These are the names of the men who shall give· the land to you ·for·​·an·​·inheritance: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.

18 And you shall take one chief from a tribe, to take· the land ·for·​·an·​·inheritance.

19 And these are the names of the men: for the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh;

20 and for the tribe of the sons of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud;

21 for the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Kislon;

22 and for the tribe of the sons of Dan, a chief, Bukki the son of Jogli;

23 for the sons of Joseph, for the tribe of the sons of Manasseh, a chief, Ḥanniel the son of Ephod;

24 and for the tribe of the sons of Ephraim, a chief, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan;

25 and for the tribe of the sons of Zebulun, a chief, Elizaphan the son of Parnach;

26 and for the tribe of the sons of Issachar, a chief, Paltiel the son of Azzan;

27 and for the tribe of the sons of Asher, a chief, Aḥihud the son of Shelomi;

28 and for the tribe of the sons of Naphtali, a chief, Pedahel the son of Ammihud.

29 These are they whom Jehovah commanded to give·​·for·​·an·​·inheritance to the sons of Israel in the land of Canaan.
