Numbers 34

This is, I think, somewhat routine. Borders and principals who will inherit on behalf of each branch of the family. There is the rather daunting problem of naming people and places with some degree of consistency, which I have not done. Sometimes I am traditional, and sometimes I transliterate according to a rule, and sometimes I translate and sometimes not.

It is possible as these unfamiliar places recur, that we will see the chapters in which they recur shortly. That may make some of the names more familiar.
Numbers 34 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיְדַבֵּ֥ר יְהוָ֖ה אֶל־מֹשֶׁ֥ה לֵּאמֹֽר 1 And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 3e 3g 10
צַ֞ו אֶת־בְּנֵ֤י יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ וְאָמַרְתָּ֣ אֲלֵהֶ֔ם כִּֽי־אַתֶּ֥ם בָּאִ֖ים אֶל־הָאָ֣רֶץ כְּנָ֑עַן
