The picture that comes to my mind here is of an embryo;
We see the component parts of this fledgling nation, each with the capacity to grow and with the spiritual God-connected component safely in the centre.
This strict pattern of locational dwelling in relation to each other is loosened somewhat when they press through the waters of the Jordan to enter the promised land.
It makes me think of the young Christian, a fledgling believer with God at the centre, the potential to grow and occupy their territory as and when the Lord leads them to cross their Jordan, whereupon they will grow and expand and be a glory to God, keeping Him central on the throne of their life.
