Interesting Bible Facts-1- Inheritance for the 12 tribes

The Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh received their inheritance of the promised land, east of the Jordan. Moses, the servant of the Lord and the Israelites conquered the territories of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon and Og king of Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei and gave their land to these tribes to be their possession.

The rest of the tribes, except the tribe of Levi, received their inheritance on the west side of the Jordan where Joshua and the Israelites had to fight and defeat 31 kings to conquer their lands. Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun and the heads of the tribes of the Israel distributed the inheritance to them.

The Levites were given no inheritance except for towns to live in, pasture lands for their flocks and offerings made by fire to God. God himself was to be their inheritance.
