52 Then spake Yahweh unto Moses, saying: 53 Unto these, shall be apportioned the land as an inheritance by the number of names. 54 For the large one, thou shalt make large his inheritance, and for the small one, thou shalt make small his inheritance,—unto each one, in proportion to them who were numbered of him, shall he given his inheritance. 55 Nevertheless by lot, shall the land be apportioned,—by the names of the tribes of their fathers, shall they inherit. 56 At the bidding of the lot, shall be apportioned his inheritance,—between large and small.

63 These, are they who were numbered by Moses, and Eleazar, the priest,—when they numbered the sons of Israel, in the waste plains of Moab, by Jordan, near Jericho. 64 And among these, was there not found a man of them who had been numbered by Moses, and Aaron the priest,—when they numbered the sons of Israel in the desert of Sinai. 65 For Yahweh had said of them, They shall surely die, in the desert. And there was not left of them a man, save only, Caleb on of Jephunneh, and Joshua son of Nun.
