Lots, casting of

There are many instances in scripture of the use of lots for the purpose of making a choice (Lev. 16:8; Num. 26:55; 33:54; 34:13; Josh. 13:6; 14:1–2; Judg. 20:9; 1 Sam. 10:20–21; 14:40–42; 1 Chr. 24:5, 31; 25:8; 26:13–14; Acts 1:26). Prov. 16:33 expresses a feeling on the subject of the Lord’s hand in the matter.
