Verse 7: Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance unto the nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh…
[For a possession] For an inheritance. He often drives home the language of inheritance, so that the people might understand that their patrimony is being discussed. For it would be of the most abject idleness to neglect their paternal right, for which men are wont to fight as for hearth and home (Masius).

 Hebrew: בְּנַחֲלָה.
