Numbers 34

34:1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Command the people of Israel, and say to them, When you enter the land of Canaan (this is the land that shall fall to you for an inheritance, the land of Canaan as defined by its borders), your south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin alongside Edom, and your southern border shall run from the end of the Salt Sea on the east. And your border shall turn south of the ascent of Akrabbim, and cross to Zin, and its limit shall be south of Kadesh-barnea. Then it shall go on to Hazar-addar, and pass along to Azmon. And the border shall turn from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and its limit shall be at the sea.

“For the western border, you shall have the Great Sea and its coast. This shall be your western border.

“This shall be your northern border: from the Great Sea you shall draw a line to Mount Hor. From Mount Hor you shall draw a line to Lebo-hamath, and the limit of the border shall be at Zedad. Then the border shall extend to Ziphron, and its limit shall be at Hazar-enan. This shall be your northern border.

10 “You shall draw a line for your eastern border from Hazar-enan to Shepham. 11 And the border shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain. And the border shall go down and reach to the shoulder of the Sea of Chinnereth on the east. 12 And the border shall go down to the Jordan, and its limit shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land as defined by its borders all around.”

13 Moses commanded the people of Israel, saying, “This is the land that you shall inherit by lot, which the Lord has commanded to give to the nine tribes and to the half-tribe. 14 For the tribe of the people of Reuben by fathers' houses and the tribe of the people of Gad by their fathers' houses have received their inheritance, and also the half-tribe of Manasseh. 15 The two tribes and the half-tribe have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan east of Jericho, toward the sunrise.”

16 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 17 “These are the names of the men who shall divide the land to you for inheritance: Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun. 18 You shall take one chief from every tribe to divide the land for inheritance. 19 These are the names of the men: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. 20 Of the tribe of the people of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud. 21 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon. 22 Of the tribe of the people of Dan a chief, Bukki the son of Jogli. 23 Of the people of Joseph: of the tribe of the people of Manasseh a chief, Hanniel the son of Ephod. 24 And of the tribe of the people of Ephraim a chief, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan. 25 Of the tribe of the people of Zebulun a chief, Elizaphan the son of Parnach. 26 Of the tribe of the people of Issachar a chief, Paltiel the son of Azzan. 27 And of the tribe of the people of Asher a chief, Ahihud the son of Shelomi. 28 Of the tribe of the people of Naphtali a chief, Pedahel the son of Ammihud. 29 These are the men whom the Lord commanded to divide the inheritance for the people of Israel in the land of Canaan.”


King James Version (KJV)


Numbers 34:1-29

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,2Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)3Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward:4And 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 Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:5And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea.6And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border.7And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount Hor:8From mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to Zedad:9And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border.10And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to Shepham:11And 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:12And 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.13And Moses commanded the children 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:14For 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:15The two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising.16And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,17These are the names of the men which 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 by inheritance.19And the names of the men are these: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.20And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud.21Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon.22And the prince of the tribe of the children of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli.23The prince of the children of Joseph, for the tribe of the children of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod.24And the prince of the tribe of the children of Ephraim, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan.25And the prince of the tribe of the children of Zebulun, Elizaphan the son of Parnach.26And the prince of the tribe of the children of Issachar, Paltiel the son of Azzan.27And the prince of the tribe of the children of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi.28And the prince of the tribe of the children of Naphtali, Pedahel the son of Ammihud.29These are they whom the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.
