Numbers: 34

The Boundaries of the land.  Nu.34.1-15

1Yahweh said to Moses, 2"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 in its full extent), 3your south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin along the side of Edom, and your southern boundary shall be from the end of the Salt Sea on the east; 4and your boundary shall turn south of the ascent of Akrabbim, and cross to Zin, and its end shall be south of Kadesh-barnea; then it shall go on to Hazar-addar, and pass along to Azmon; 5and the boundary shall turn from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and its termination shall be at the sea.

6"For the western boundary, you shall have the Great Sea and its coast; this shall be your western boundary.

7"This shall be your northern boundary: from the Great Sea you shall mark out your line to Mount Hor; 8from Mount Hor you shall mark it out to the entrance of Hamath, and the end of the boundary shall be at Zeded; 9then the boundary shall extend to Ziphron, and its end shall be at Hazar-enan; this shall be your northern boundary.

10"You shall mark out your eastern boundary from Hazar-enan to Shepham; 11and the boundary shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain; and the boundary shall go down, and reach to the shoulder of the sea of Chinnereth on the east; 12and the boundary shall go down to the Jordan, and its end shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land with its boundaries all round."

13Moses commanded the people of Israel, saying, "This is the land which you shall inherit by lot, which Yahweh has commanded to give to the nine tribes and to the half-tribe; 14for the tribe of the sons of Reuben by fathers' houses and the tribe of the sons of Gad by their fathers' houses have received their inheritance, and also the half-tribe of Manasseh; 15the two tribes and the half-tribe have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan at Jericho eastward, toward the sunrise."

The men chosen to divide the land.  Nu.34.16-29

16Yahweh said to Moses, 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. 18You shall take one leader of every tribe, to divide the land for inheritance. 19These are the names of the men: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. 20Of the tribe of the sons of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud. 21Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon. 22Of the tribe of the sons of Dan a leader, Bukki the son of Jogli. 23Of the sons of Joseph: of the tribe of the sons of Manasshe a leader, Hanniel the son of Ephod. 24And of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim a leader, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan. 25Of the tribe of the sons of Zebulun a leader, Elizaphan the son of Parnach. 26Of the tribe of the sons of Issachar a leader, Paltiel the son of Azzan. 27And of the tribe of the sons of Asher a leader, Ahihud the son of Shelomi. 28Of the tribe of the sons of Naphtali a leader, Pedahel the son of Ammihud. 29These are the men whom Yahweh commanded to divide the inheritance for the people of Israel in the land of Canaan."

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
