The Boundaries of Canaan

1And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2Charge the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, Ye are entering into the land of Chanaan: it shall be to you for an inheritance, the land of Chanaan with its boundaries. 3And your southern side shall be from the wilderness of Sin to the border of Edom, and your border southward shall extend on the side of the salt sea eastward. 4And your border shall go round you from the south to the ascent of Acrabin, and shall proceed by Ennac, and the going forth of it shall be southward to Cades Barne, and it shall go forth to the village of Arad, and shall proceed by Asemona. 5And the border shall compass from Asemona to the river of Egypt, and the sea shall be the termination.

6And ye shall have your border on the west, the great sea shall be the boundary: this shall be to you the border on the west.

7And this shall be your northern border; from the great sea ye shall measure to yourselves, by the side of the mountain. 8And ye shall measure to yourselves the mountain from mount Hor at the entering in to Emath, and the termination of it shall be the coasts of Saradac. 9And the border shall go out to Dephrona, and its termination shall be at Arsenain; this shall be your border from the north.

10And ye shall measure to yourselves the eastern border from Arsenain to Sepphamar. 11And the border shall go down from Sepphamar to Bela eastward to the fountains, and the border shall go down from Bela behind the sea Chenereth eastward. 12And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the termination shall be the salt sea; this shall be your land and its borders round about.

13And Moses charged the children of Israel, saying, This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, even as the Lord commanded us to give it to the nine tribes and the half-tribe of Manasse. 14For the tribe of the children of Ruben, and the tribe of the children of Gad have received their inheritance according to their families; and the half-tribe of Manasse have received their inheritances. 15Two tribes and half a tribe have received their inheritance beyond Jordan by Jericho from the south eastwards.

Leaders to Divide the Land

16And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 17These are the names of the men who shall divide the land to you for an inheritance; Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Naue. 18And ye shall take one ruler from each tribe to divide the land to you by lot. 19And these are the names of the men; of the tribe of Juda Chaleb the son of Jephonne. 20Of the tribe of Symeon, Salamiel the son of Semiud. 21Of the tribe of Benjamin, Eldad the son of Chaslon. 22Of the tribe of Dan the prince was Bacchir the son of Egli. 23Of the sons of Joseph of the tribe of the sons of Manasse, the prince was Aniel the son of Suphi. 24Of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim, the prince was Camuel the son of Sabathan. 25Of the tribe of Zabulon, the prince was Elisaphan the son of Pharnac. 26Of the tribe of the sons of Issachar, the prince was Phaltiel the son of Oza. 27Of the tribe of the children of Aser, the prince was Achior the son of Selemi. 28Of the tribe of Nephthali, the prince was Phadael the son of Jamiud. 29These did the Lord command to distribute the inheritances to the children of Israel in the land of Chanaan.
