1 And Yahweh spake unto Moses [Moshe], saying,

2 Command the children of Israel [Bnei Yisroel], and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan [Eretz Kena'an]; (this is the land [HaAretz] that shall fall unto you for an inheritance [nachalah], Eretz Kena'an with the borders thereof)

3 Then your southern side shall be from the Midbar Tzin [wilderness of Zin] along by the border of Edom, and your southern border shall be from the edge of the Yam HaMelach (Salt Sea, Dead Sea) to the east;

4 And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from the south to Kadesh barnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:

4 And your border shall turn from the south of Ma'aleh Akrabbim, and pass on to Tzin; and the going forth thereof shall be from the south of Kadesh Barnea, and shall go on to Chatzar Addar, and pass on to Atzmon;

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 sea.

5 And the border shall go around from Atzmon unto the Wadi of Mitzrayim, and the goings out of it shall be toward the [Mediterranean] 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:

6 And as for the western border, ye shall even have the Yam HaGadol for a border; this shall be your west border.

7 And this shall be your northern border: from the Yam HaGadol ye shall run to Mt Hor;

8 From Mt Hor ye shall run your border unto the approach to Chamat; and the goings forth of the border shall be toward Tzedad;

9 And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be Chatzar Einan; this shall be your northern border.

10 And ye shall draw a line for you for an eastern border from Chatzar Einan to Shepham;

11 And the coast 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 Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about.

13 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which Yahweh commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe:

14 For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to the house of their fathers, have received their inheritance; 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 Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising.

11 And the border shall go down from Shepham to Rivlah, on the east side of Ain; the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the bank of the Yam Kinneret to the east;

12 And the border shall go down to the Yarden, and the goings out of it shall be at the Yam HaMelach; this shall be your land with the borders thereof all around.

13 And Moshe commanded the Bnei Yisroel, saying, This is the land which ye shall inherit by goral, which Hashem commanded to give unto the nine mattot (tribes), and to the half tribe;

14 For the tribe of the Bnei Reuven according to the bais avotam, and the tribe of the Bnei Gad according to the bais avotam and the half tribe of Menasheh have received their nachalah;

15 The two tribes and the half tribe have received their nachalah on the east side of the Yarden near Yericho toward the sunrise.

16 And Yahweh spake unto Moses [Moshe], saying,

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

17 These are the shmot of the anashim which shall apportion HaAretz unto you; Eleazar HaKohen, and Yehoshua Ben Nun.

18 And ye shall take one prince [nasi] of every tribe [matteh], to divide the land by inheritance [to possess HaAretz].

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

19 And the shmot of the anashim are these: Of the tribe of Yehudah, Kalev Ben Yephunneh;

20 And of the tribe of the children of Simeon [Bnei Shim'on], Shemuel Ben [the son of] Ammihud.

21 Of the tribe of Benjamin [Binyamin], Elidad the son of Chislon [Ben Kislon].

22 And the prince [nasi] of the tribe of the children [Bnei] of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli [Ben Yogli].

23 The prince of the children of Joseph, for the tribe of the Bnei Menasheh, Channi'el Ben Ephod
