1The LORD said to Moses, 2‘Give these instructions to the Israelites: Soon you will be entering Canaan. This is the land assigned to you as your portion, the land of Canaan thus defined by its frontiers. 3Your southern border will start from the wilderness of Zin, where it marches with Edom, and run southwards from the end of the Dead Sea on its eastern side. 4It will then turn from the south up the ascent of Akrabbim and pass by Zin, and its southern limit will be Kadesh-barnea. It will proceed by Hazar-addar to Azmon 5and from Azmon turn towards the wadi of Egypt, and its limit will be the sea. 6Your western frontier will be the Great Sea and the seaboard; this will be your frontier to the west. 7This will be your northern frontier: you will draw a line from the Great Sea to Mount Hor 8and from Mount Hor to Lebo-hamath, and the limit of the frontier will be Zedad. 9From there it will run to Ziphron, and its limit will be Hazar-enan; this will be your frontier to the north. 10To the east you will draw a line from Hazar-enan to Shepham; 11it will run down from Shepham to Riblah east of Ain, continuing until it strikes the ridge east of the sea of Kinnereth. 12The frontier will then run down to the Jordan and its limit will be the Dead Sea. The land defined by these frontiers will be your land.’

13Moses gave these instructions to the Israelites: ‘This is the land which you are to assign by lot as holdings; it is the land which the LORD has commanded to be given to nine tribes and a half tribe. 14For the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh have already taken possession of their holdings, family by family. 15These two and a half tribes have received their holding here beyond the Jordan, east of Jericho, towards the sunrise.’

16The LORD said to Moses, 17‘These are the men who are to assign the land for you: Eleazar the priest and Joshua son of Nun. 18You must also take one chief from each tribe to assign the land. 19These are their names:

  • from the tribe of Judah: Caleb son of Jephunneh;

  • 20from the tribe of Simeon: Samuel son of Ammihud;

  • 21from the tribe of Benjamin: Elidad son of Kislon;

  • 22from the tribe of Dan: the chief Bukki son of Jogli;

  • 23from the Josephites: from Manasseh, the chief Hanniel son of Ephod;

  • 24and from Ephraim, the chief Kemuel son of Shiphtan;

  • 25from Zebulun: the chief Elizaphan son of Parnach;

  • 26from Issachar: the chief Paltiel son of Azzan;

  • 27from Asher: the chief Ahihud son of Shelomi;

  • 28from Naphtali: the chief Pedahel son of Ammihud.’

29These were the men whom the LORD appointed to assign the holdings in the land of Canaan.
