Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
How was it ensured that each tribe would get the appropriate size territory?
אַךְ־בְּגוֹרָ֕ל יֵחָלֵ֖ק אֶת־הָאָ֑רֶץ לִשְׁמ֥וֹת מַטּוֹת־אֲבֹתָ֖ם יִנְחָֽלוּ׃
The land, moreover, is to be apportioned by lot; and the allotment shall be made according to the listings of their ancestral tribes.
Another miracle was that the lottery matched every tribe perfectly with the portion of land they required.
Note that there are also other opinions regarding how the Land was divided.
(Chiluk Ha’aretz by the Kli Yakar at the end of Yehoshua)
