2 Command the sons of Israel and say unto them, When ye have entered into the land of Canaan (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan according to its borders),
3 you shall have on the side of the Negev from the wilderness of Zin unto the borders of Edom, and your border towards the Negev shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward.
4 And this border shall turn from the Negev to the ascent of Akrabbim and pass on to Zin, and the going forth thereof shall be from the Negev to Kadeshbarnea and shall go on to Hazaraddar and pass on to Azmon;
5 and the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the western sea.
6 And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border; this shall be your west border.
7 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you Mount Hor.
8 From Mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the entrance of Hamath, and the goings forth of the border shall be to Zedad,
9 and the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan; this shall be your north border.
10 And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to Shepham,
11 and the border shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain, and the border shall descend and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward.
12 And the border shall go down to the Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea; this shall be your land with the borders thereof round about.
13 And Moses commanded the sons of Israel, saying, This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the LORD commanded to give unto the nine tribes and to the half tribe,
14 because the tribe of the sons of Reuben, according to the houses of their fathers, and the tribe of the sons of Gad, according to the houses of their fathers, and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance.
15 The two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side of the Jordan of Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising.

17 These are the names of the men who shall divide the possession of the land for you: Eleazar, the priest, and Joshua, the son of Nun.

19 And the names of the men are these: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb, the son of Jephunneh.
