God spoke to Moses, saying:

26:53 Among these [people] you shall divide the land as an inheritance, following a number of names [recorded].
La'eleh techalek ha'arets benachalah bemispar shemot.
26:54 To a larger [group] you shall give a larger inheritance, while to a smaller group, you shall give a smaller inheritance. Each one shall thus be given his hereditary property according to its tally.
