Joshua 13:24-33

Context

13:24 Moses assigned land to the tribe of Gad 1  by its clans. 13:25 Their territory included Jazer, all the cities of Gilead, and half of Ammonite territory 2  as far as Aroer near 3  Rabbah. 13:26 Their territory ran 4  from Heshbon to Ramath Mizpah and Betonim, and from Mahanaim to the territory of Debir. 13:27 It included the valley of Beth Haram, 5  Beth Nimrah, Succoth, and Zaphon, and the rest of the realm of King Sihon of Heshbon, the area east of the Jordan to the end of the Sea of Kinnereth. 6  13:28 The land allotted to the tribe of Gad by its clans included these cities and their towns. 7 

13:29 Moses assigned land to the half-tribe of Manasseh 8  by its clans. 13:30 Their territory started at 9  Mahanaim and encompassed all Bashan, the whole realm of King Og of Bashan, including all sixty cities in Havvoth Jair 10  in Bashan. 13:31 Half of Gilead, Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities in the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were assigned to the descendants of Makir son of Manasseh, to half the descendants of Makir by their clans.

13:32 These are the land assignments made by Moses 11  on the plains of Moab east of the Jordan River opposite Jericho. 12  13:33 However, Moses did not assign land as an inheritance 13  to the Levites; their inheritance 14  is the Lord God of Israel, as he instructed 15  them.
