The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
    "Speak to the children 
of Israel, and say to them: 
    'When you have crossed the Jordan 

        into the land of Canaan,
    then you shall drive out all the 

        inhabitants of the land from before you,
            destroy their engraved 
            destroy all their molded images,
            and demolish all their 
high places. 

    You shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land
        and dwell in it,
    for I have given you the land to possess. 

    You shall divide the land by lot
        as an inheritance among 
your families, 
        according to the tribes of your fathers. 

                                                                   --- Numbers 33:50-54
