      1  The borders of the land.
    16  The names of the men who shall divide the land.
    
    
    VERSE 1
       * :1
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - is the land.
       * Nu 33:51-53 Ge 12:6,7; 13:15-17; 15:16-21; 17:8 De 1:7,8 Ps 78:55
       * Ps 105:11 Eze 47:14 Ac 17:26
    - an inheritance.
       * Ps 16:5,6 Jer 3:19 Ac 26:18 Eph 1:14,18 1Pe 1:3,4
    
    
    VERSE 3 
     - south quarter.
       * Ex 23:31 Jos 15:1-12 Eze 47:13,19-23
    - salt sea eastward.
      The lake Asphaltites, Dead sea, or Salt sea, is, according to
      the most authentic accounts, about 70 miles in length, and 18
      in breadth.  Viewing this sea from the spot where the Jordan
      discharges its waters into it, it takes a south-easterly
      direction, visible for ten or fifteen miles, when it
      disappears in a curve towards the east.  Its surface is
      generally unruffled, from the hollow of the basin in which it
      lies scarcely admitting the free passage necessary for a
      strong breeze:  it is, however, for the same reason, subject
      to whirlwinds or squalls of short duration.  The mountains on
      each side are apparently separated by a distance of eight
      miles; but the expanse of water at this point has been
      supposed not to exceed five or six:  as it advances towards
      the south, it evidently increases in breadth.  The acrid
      saltness of its waters is much greater than that of the sea;
      and of such specific gravity that bodies will float on it that
      would sink in common sea-water.  It is probably on this
      account that few fish can live in it; though the monks of St.
      Saba affirmed to Dr. Shaw, that they had seen fish caught in
      it.

    VERSE 15 
     - two tribes.
      These two tribes inherited the dominions of Sihon and Og, the
      two vanquished kings of the Amorites, which extended from the
      Arnon to Mount Hermon.  Of those counties, Moses gave to the
      tribe of Reuben the south-west part, which was bounded on the
      south by the river Arnon, on the west by Jordan, and on the
      north and east by the tribe of Gad.  The tribe of Gad was
      bounded by the river Jordan and tribe of Reuben on the west,
      by the half tribe of Manasseh on the north, by the kingdom of
      the Amorites and Arabia Deserta on the East, and by the tribe
      of Reuben on the south.  The part belonging to the tribe of
      Manasseh was bounded by the tribe of Gad on the south, by the
      sea of Galilee and part of Jordan on the west, by Hermon and
      Lebanon on the north, and by the mountains of Trachonitis on
      the east.
    
    - on this side Jordan.
       * Nu 32:32
    
    VERSE 16
    
    
    VERSE 17 
     - are the names.
      It is worthy of remark, that Moses does not follow any order
      hitherto used in arranging the tribes, but places them exactly
      in the order in which they possessed the land, and according
      to their fraternal relationship.  Judah is first, having the
      first lot, in the South (Jos ch. 15); and next to him is
      Simeon, because his inheritance was "within the inheritance of
      the children of Judah." (Jos 19:1.)  Benjamin, the third, had
      his portion between "Judah and the children of Joseph." (Jos
      11 18:11.)  Dan was the fourth, and his lot was westward of
      Benjamin.  (Jos 19:40, 41.)  Manasseh and his brother Ephraim
      had their inheritances behind that of Benjamin.  (Jos 16:7.)
      Next these dwelt Zebulun and Issachar, (Jos 19:10-17;) and
      then Asher and Naphtali.  (Jos 19:24-32.)
    
    - Eleazar.
