Shepham, then down to Riblah on the east side of Ain. From there the
boundary will run down along the eastern edge of the Sea of Galilee, and
then along the Jordan River to the Dead Sea. These are the boundaries of
your land.”
Then Moses told the Israelites, “This territory is the homeland you are
to divide among yourselves by sacred lot. The Lord has commanded
that the land be divided among the nine and a half remaining tribes. The
families of the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh have
already received their grants of land on the east side of the Jordan River,
across from Jericho toward the sunrise.”
And the Lord said to Moses, “Eleazar the priest and Joshua son of Nun are
the men designated to divide the grants of land among the people. Enlist
one leader from each tribe to help them with the task. These are the tribes
and the names of the leaders:

While Israel was camped beside the Jordan on the plains of Moab across
from Jericho, the Lord said to Moses, “Command the people of Israel
to give to the Levites from their property certain towns to live in, along
with the surrounding pasturelands. These towns will be for the Levites
to live in, and the surrounding lands will provide pasture for their cattle,
flocks, and other livestock. The pastureland assigned to the Levites around
these towns will extend 1,500 feet from the town walls in every direction.
­Measure off 3,000 feet outside the town walls in every ­direction—­east,
south, west, ­north—­with the town at the center. This area will serve as the
larger pastureland for the towns.
