The Boundaries of Canaan
(Genesis 15:8-21; Romans 4:13-25)
1And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
2Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan, this shall be the land that shall fall to you for an inheritance, the land of Canaan according to the borders thereof.
3Then your south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin alongside of Edom, and your southern border shall be from the end of the salt sea eastward;
4and your border shall turn from the south of the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin, and shall end southward at Kadesh-barnea, and shall go on to Hazar-Addar, and pass on to Azmon.
5And the border shall turn from Azmon unto the torrent of Egypt, and shall end at the sea.
6And as west border ye shall have the great sea, and its coast. This shall be your west border.
7And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall mark out for you mount Hor;
8from mount Hor ye shall mark out the entrance to Hamath, and the end of the border shall be toward Zedad;
9and the border shall go to Ziphron, and shall end at Hazar-enan. This shall be your north border.
10And ye shall mark out for you as eastern border from Hazar-enan to Shepham:
11and the border shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall strike upon the extremity of the sea of Chinnereth eastward;
12and the border shall go down to the Jordan, and shall end at the salt sea. This shall be your land according to the borders thereof round about.
13And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is the land which ye shall take for yourselves as inheritance by lot, which Jehovah commanded to give to the nine tribes, and to the half tribe.
14For the tribe of the children of the Reubenites according to their fathers' houses, and the tribe of the children of the Gadites according to their fathers' houses, have received, and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance;
15the two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side the Jordan of Jericho eastward, toward the sun-rising.
Leaders to Divide the Land
16And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
17These are the names of the men who shall divide the land unto you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.
18And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the land.
19And these are the names of the men: for the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh;
20and for the tribe of the children of Simeon, Samuel the son of Ammihud;
21for the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon;
22and for the tribe of the children of Dan, a prince, Bukki the son of Jogli;
23for the children of Joseph: for the tribe of the children of Manasseh, a prince, Hanniel the son of Ephod,
24and for the tribe of the children of Ephraim, a prince, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan;
25and for the tribe of the children of Zebulun, a prince, Elizaphan the son of Pharnach;
26and for the tribe of the children of Issachar, a prince, Phaltiel the son of Azzan;
27and for the tribe of the children of Asher, a prince, Ahihud the son of Shelomi;
28and for the tribe of the children of Naphtali, a prince, Phedahel the son of Ammihud.
29These are they whom Jehovah commanded to distribute to the children of Israel their inheritance in the land of Canaan.
