What are the implications of " ... asher Yinchalu lachem"

1.

Rashi: It implies that the princes acted as Apotropsim (agents) 1 on behalf of their respective tribes - each one choosing an appropriate portion of land for each family and for each tribe. 2


1

Rashi: As if they were their agents. "Lachem" cannot be translated 'to you' as it usually is, because that would imply that they simply distributed the land - impersonally.

2

Rashi: And this is further implied in the next Pasuk, when it writes "Linchol es ha'Aretz (as if they were inheriting it themselves) rather than "Lenachel" ('to distribute the inheritance')
