5:1–26 The tribes east of the Jordan River are discussed. This material is in four sections: Reuben (vv. 1–10); Gad (vv. 11–17); a brief narrative (vv. 18–22); and the half-tribe of Manasseh (vv. 23–26). The hope is that these tribes will be included in the nation after the return from exile in Babylon (2:42 note).
