The Scriptures (ISR 1998)
1And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
2“Command the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘When you come into the land of Kena‛an, this is the land which falls to you as an inheritance, the land of Kena‛an to its boundaries:
3‘Then your southern border shall be from the Wilderness of Tsin along the border of Eḏom, and your southern border shall be eastward from the end of the Salt Sea.
4‘Then your border shall turn from the southern side of the Ascent of Aqrabbim, continue to Tsin, and be on the south of Qaḏĕsh Barnĕa, and it shall go on to Ḥatsar Addar, and continue to Atsmon.
5‘And the border shall turn from Atsmon to the wadi of Mitsrayim, and it shall end at the Sea.
6‘As for the western border, you shall have the Great Sea for a border, this is your western border.
7‘And this is your northern border: From the Great Sea you mark out your borderline to Mount Hor,
8from Mount Hor you mark out your border to the entrance of Ḥamath, and the edge of the border shall be toward Tseḏaḏ,
9and the border shall proceed to Ziphron, and it shall end at Ḥatsar Ěnan. This is your northern border.
10‘And you shall mark out your eastern border from Ḥatsar Ěnan to Shepham,
11and the border shall go down from Shepham to Riḇlah on the east side of Ayin, and the border shall go down and reach to the eastern side of the Sea of Kinnereth.
12‘And the border shall go down along the Yardĕn, and it shall end at the Salt Sea. This is your land with its surrounding boundaries.’ ”
13And Mosheh commanded the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, “This is the land which you inherit by lot, which יהוה has commanded to give to the nine tribes and to the half-tribe.
14“For the tribe of the children of Re’uḇĕn according to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gaḏ according to the house of their fathers, have received their inheritance. And the half-tribe of Menashsheh has received its inheritance.
15“The two tribes and the half-tribe have received their inheritance beyond the Yardĕn of Yeriḥo eastward, toward the sunrise.”
16And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
17“These are the names of the men who divide the land among you as an inheritance: El‛azar the priest, and Yehoshua son of Nun.
18“And take one leader of every tribe to divide the land for the inheritance.
19“And these are the names of the men. From the tribe of Yehuḏah: Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh.
20“And from the tribe of the children of Shim‛on: Shemu’ĕl son of Ammihuḏ.
21“From the tribe of Binyamin: Eliḏaḏ son of Kislon.
22“And a leader from the tribe of the children of Dan: Buqqi son of Yog̅li.
23“From the sons of Yosĕph: a leader from the tribe of the children of Menashsheh, Ḥanni’ĕl son of Ěphoḏ.
24“And a leader from the tribe of the children of Ephrayim: Qemu’ĕl son of Shiphtan.
25“And a leader from the tribe of the children of Zeḇulun: Elitsaphan son of Parnaḵ.
26“And a leader from the tribe of the children of Yissasḵar: Palti’ĕl son of Azzan.
27“And a leader from the tribe of the children of Ashĕr: Aḥihuḏ son of Shelomi.
28“And a leader from the tribe of the children of Naphtali: Peḏah’ĕl son of Ammihuḏ.”
29These are the ones יהוה commanded to divide the inheritance among the children of Yisra’ĕl in the land of Kena‛an.
