Division of the Promised Land

“Now that the general conquest of Canaan is complete, it is time to partition the promised land among the remaining 9 1/2 tribes who will be occupying the land west of the Jordan River.  For some unknown reason, the tribes of Judah and Ephraim, and the remaining half-tribe of Manasseh, are given a preferential portion of the land, along with a special grant for Caleb, the former faithful spy.  Thereafter the remaining land will be surveyed and divided by lot among the other tribes.”
