You must divide the land by lot for an inheritance among your families. To a larger group you must give a larger inheritance, and to a smaller group you must give a smaller inheritance. Everyone’s inheritance must be in the place where his lot falls. You must inherit according to your ancestral 1 tribes.
These are the land assignments which Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the Israelite tribal leaders 1 made by drawing lots in Shiloh before the Lord at the entrance of the tent of meeting. 2 So they finished dividing up the land.
