13:32 These are the land assignments made by Moses 1 on the plains of Moab east of the Jordan River opposite Jericho. 2 13:33 However, Moses did not assign land as an inheritance 3 to the Levites; their inheritance 4 is the Lord God of Israel, as he instructed 5 them.
1 tn Heb “These are [the lands] which Moses gave as an inheritance.”
2 tn Heb “beyond the Jordan, east of Jericho.” The word “River” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied to clarify the meaning.
3 tn Heb “Moses did not assign an inheritance.” The word “land” has been supplied in the translation to clarify what the inheritance consisted of.
4 tn That is, “their source of food and life.”
5 tn Or “as he promised”; Heb “as he spoke to.”
sn For the background of this observation, see Deut 18:1-2.
