(cp Yehoshua 13:1-19:51)

48:1 Now these are the names of the tribes:

from the north end, beside the way of Hetlon to the entrance of Hamat, Hatzar-Einan, at the border of Damesek, northward, beside Hamat; and they shall have their sides east and west: Dan, one portion

48:2 And by the border of Dan, from the east side unto the west side: Asher, one portion.

48:3 And by the border of Asher, from the east side even unto the west side: Naftali, one portion.

48:4 And by the border of Naftali, from the east side unto the west side: Menasheh, one portion.

48:5 And by the border of Menasheh, from the east side unto the west side: Efrayim, one portion.

48:6 And by the border of Efrayim, from the east side even unto the west side: Reuven, one portion.

48:7 And by the border of Reuven, from the east side unto the west side: Yehudah, one portion.

48:8 And by the border of Yehudah, from the kadiym (east) pe'ah unto the west pe'ah, shall be the offering which ye shall offer of five and twenty thousand [reeds in] breadth, and [in] length as one of the [other] parts, from the kadiym (east) pe'ah unto the west pe'ah: and the sanctuary shall be in the midst of it.

48:9 The terumah (oblation) that ye shall offer unto ADONAI (יהוה) [shall be] of five and twenty thousand in length, and of ten thousand in breadth.

48:10 And for them, [even] for the Kohenim, shall be [this] kadosh terumah (oblation); toward the tzafon five and twenty thousand [in length], and toward the west ten thousand in breadth, and toward the kadiym (east) ten thousand in breadth, and toward the negev (south) five and twenty thousand in length: and the sanctuary of ADONAI (יהוה) shall be in the midst thereof.

48:11 [It shall be] for the Kohenim that are sanctified of the benai Tzadok; which have kept my charge, which went not astray when Benai Yisrael (ישׂרא) went astray, as the Leviim went astray.

48:12 And [this] terumah (oblation) of the land that is offered shall be unto them a thing most kadosh by the border of the Leviim.

48:13 And over against the border of the Kohenim the Leviim [shall have] five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in breadth: all the length [shall be] five and twenty thousand, and the breadth ten thousand.

48:14 And they shall not sell of it, neither exchange, nor alienate the firstfruits of the land: for [it is] kadosh unto ADONAI (יהוה).

48:15 And the five thousand, that are left in the breadth over against the five and twenty thousand, shall be a profane [place] for the city, for dwelling, and for suburbs: and the city shall be in the midst thereof.

48:16 And these [shall be] the measures thereof; the tzafon pe'ah four thousand and five hundred, and the negev (south) pe'ah four thousand and five hundred, and on the kadiym (east) pe'ah four thousand and five hundred, and the west pe'ah four thousand and five hundred.

48:17 And the suburbs of the city shall be toward the tzafon two hundred and fifty, and toward the negev (south) two hundred and fifty, and toward the kadiym (east) two hundred and fifty, and toward the west two hundred and fifty.

48:18 And the residue in length over against the terumah (oblation) of the kadosh [portion shall be] ten thousand kadiym (eastward), and ten thousand westward: and it shall be over against the terumah (oblation) of the kadosh [portion]; and the increase thereof shall be for food unto them that serve the city.

48:19 And they that serve the city shall serve it out of all the Shivtei Yisrael.

48:20 All the terumah (oblation) [shall be] five and twenty thousand by five and twenty thousand: ye shall offer the kadosh terumah (oblation) foursquare, with the possession of the city.

48:21 And the residue [shall be] for the prince, on the one pe'ah and on the other of the kadosh terumah (oblation), and of the possession of the city, over against the five and twenty thousand of the terumah (oblation) toward the kadiym (east) border, and westward over against the five and twenty thousand toward the west border, over against the portions for the prince: and it shall be the kadosh terumah (oblation); and the sanctuary of the bayit [shall be] in the midst thereof.

48:22 Moreover from the possession of the Leviim, and from the possession of the city, [being] in the midst [of that] which is the prince's, between the border of Yehudah and the border of Benyamin, shall be for the prince.

48:23 As for the rest of the Shevatim (Tribes), from the kadiym (east) pe'ah unto the west pe'ah, Benyamin [shall have] a [portion].

48:24 And by the border of Benyamin, from the kadiym (east) pe'ah unto the west pe'ah, Shimon [shall have] a [portion].

48:25 And by the border of Shimon, from the kadiym (east) pe'ah unto the west pe'ah, Yissakhar a [portion].

48:26 And by the border of Yissakhar, from the kadiym (east) pe'ah unto the west pe'ah, Zevulun a [portion].

48:27 And by the border of Zevulun, from the kadiym (east) pe'ah unto the west pe'ah, Gad a [portion].

48:28 And by the border of Gad, at the Negev (south) pe'ah teman, the border shall be even from Tamar [unto] the waters of strife [in] Kadesh, [and] to the river toward the great sea.

48:29 This [is] the land which ye shall divide by lot unto the Shivtei Yisrael (ישׂרא)for inheritance, and these [are] their portions, saith Adonay (אדני)  ADONAI (יהוה).

48:30 And these [are] the goings out of the city on the tzafon pe'ah, four thousand and five hundred measures.

48:31 And the shaarim of the city [shall be] after the names of the Shivtei Yisrael: three shaarim tzafon (northward); one shaar of Reuven, one shaar of Yehudah, one shaar of Levy.

48:32 And at the kadiym (east) pe'ah four thousand and five hundred: and three gates; and one shaar of Yosef, one shaar of Benyamin, one shaar of Dan.

48:33 And at the Negev (south) pe'ah four thousand and five hundred measures: and three gates; one shaar of Shimon, one shaar of Yissakhar, one shaar of Zevulun.

48:34 At the west pe'ah four thousand and five hundred, [with] their three gates; one shaar of Gad, one shaar of Asher, one shaar of Naftali.

48:35 [It was] round about eighteen thousand [measures]: and the name of the city from [that] day [shall be], ADONAI (יהוה) Shamah (שׁמה). (Yehowah is there)
