The edges of Israel's land
13 This is what the Lord God says. ‘This is the land that I am giving to you to keep. Each of your twelve (12) tribes must have a part. You must give Joseph's sons two parts. 14 Each tribe must have a part of the same size. I made a promise to your fathers that I would give them this country to live in. I gave it to them and their children to keep for all time.
15 These are the edges of your country. The north side goes from the Mediterranean Sea to the city called Hethlon. Then it passes Lebo Hamath and goes to the city called Zedad. 16 From there, it continues through Berothah and Sibraim. They are on the edges of Hamath's and Damascus's lands. Then it goes to the city called Hazer-Hatticon. It goes by the edge of Hauran's land. 17 That is the north edge of your country. It goes from the Mediterranean Sea to the city called Hazar-Enan. That is the north edge of Damascus's land. The land of Hamath is north of it.
18 On the east side, your land goes along the Jordan river. It starts between Hauran and Damascus. It goes between Gilead and Israel as far as Tamar on the Dead Sea.
19 On the south side, it goes from Tamar to the waters of Kadesh Meribah. Then it goes north-west along the Stream of Egypt to the Mediterranean Sea.
20 The Mediterranean Sea is the west edge of your country. It goes north as far as the west of Lebo Hamath. That is the west side of your country.
21 You must give each tribe a part of the land. 22 You will keep it for yourselves and the foreigners and their children who live among you. You must think of them as Israel's people. You must give them land to live on. 23 They can have land in any tribe's land where they decide to live,’ says the Lord God.
