14 These are the areas which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, awhich Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel distributed as an inheritance to them. 2 Their inheritance was bby lot, as the Lord had commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes and the half-tribe. 3 cFor Moses had given the inheritance of the two tribes and the half-tribe on the other side of the Jordan; but to the Levites he had given no inheritance among them. 4 For dthe children of Joseph were two tribes: Manasseh and Ephraim. And they gave no part to the Levites in the land, except ecities to dwell in, with their common-lands for their livestock and their property. 5 fAs the Lord had commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did; and they divided the land.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
