13 Moses commanded the Israelites: “Assign this land by lotg as an inheritance.h The Lord has ordered that it be given to the nine and a half tribes, 14 because the families of the tribe of Reuben, the tribe of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance.i 15 These two and a half tribes have received their inheritance east of the Jordan across from Jericho, toward the sunrise.”
16 The Lord said to Moses, 17 “These are the names of the men who are to assign the land for you as an inheritance: Eleazar the priest and Joshuaj son of Nun. 18 And appoint one leader from each tribe to helpk assign the land.l 19 These are their names:m
Calebn son of Jephunneh,
from the tribe of Judah;o
from the tribe of Simeon;p
from the tribe of Benjamin;q
the leader from the tribe of Dan;
the leader from the tribe of Manassehr son of Joseph;
the leader from the tribe of Ephraims son of Joseph;
the leader from the tribe of Zebulun;t
the leader from the tribe of Issachar;
the leader from the tribe of Asher;u
the leader from the tribe of Naphtali.”
29 These are the men the Lord commanded to assign the inheritance to the Israelites in the land of Canaan.v
