31 (A)I will fix your boundary from the [a]Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River Euphrates; (B)for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you will (C)drive them out before you.

Instruction for Apportioning Canaan

34 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Command the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter (A)the land of Canaan, this is the land that shall fall to you as an inheritance, even the land of Canaan according to its borders. (B)Your southern [a]sector shall [b]extend from the wilderness of Zin along the side of Edom, and your southern border shall [c]extend from the end of the Salt Sea (C)eastward. Then your border shall turn direction from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim and [d]continue to Zin, and its [e]termination shall be to the south of (D)Kadesh-barnea; and it shall [f]reach Hazaraddar and [g]continue to Azmon. The border shall turn direction from Azmon to the brook of Egypt, and its termination shall be at (E)the sea.

‘As for the western border, you shall have the Great Sea, that is, its [h]coastline; this shall be your west border.

(F)And this shall be your north border: you shall draw your border line from the Great Sea to Mount Hor. You shall draw a line from Mount Hor to (G)the [i]Lebo-hamath, and the termination of the border shall be at Zedad; and the border shall proceed to Ziphron, and its termination shall be at Hazar-enan. This shall be your north border.

10 ‘For your eastern border you shall also draw a line from Hazar-enan to Shepham, 11 and the border shall go down from Shepham to (H)Riblah on the east side of Ain; and the border shall go down and reach to the [j]slope on the east side of the Sea of (I)Chinnereth. 12 And the border shall go down to the Jordan and its termination shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land according to its borders all around.’”

13 So Moses commanded the sons of Israel, saying, “(J)This is the land that you are to apportion by lot among you as a possession, which the Lord has commanded to give to the nine and a half tribes. 14 (K)For the tribe of the sons of Reuben have received theirs according to their fathers’ households, and the tribe of the sons of Gad according to their fathers’ households, and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received their possession. 15 The two and a half tribes have received their possession across the Jordan opposite Jericho, eastward toward the sunrising.”

Turn and set your journey, and go to (A)the hill country of the Amorites, and to all their neighbors in the Arabah, in the hill country and in the lowland and in (B)the [a]Negev and by the seacoast, the land of the Canaanites, and Lebanon, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates. See, I have placed the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord (C)swore to give to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to them and their [b]descendants after them.’
