Joshua 19

VIN(i) 1 And the second lot came out for the children of Simeon; and their inheritance was in the midst of the lots of the children of Judah. 2 Its inheritance included Beer-sheba, Sheba, Moladah, 3 Hazar Shual, Balah, Ezem, 4 Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah, 5 Ziklag, Beth Marcaboth, Hazar Susah, 6 Beth Lebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their villages. 7 Ain, Rimmon, Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their villages, 8 and all the villages that were round about these cities, as far as Baalath-beer, Ramah of the South. This, is the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Simeon, by their families: 9 The heritage of Simeon was taken out of Judah's stretch of land, for Judah's part was more than they had need of, so the heritage of the children of Simeon was inside their heritage. 10 And the third heritage came out for Zebulun by their families; the limit of their heritage was as far as Sarid; 11 and went up to the sea and to Mareal, and touched at Dabbesheth, and met at the river that lieth before Jokneam; 12 It turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrise to the border of Chisloth Tabor. It went out to Daberath, and went up to Japhia. 13 From there it passed along eastward to Gath Hepher, to Eth Kazin; and it went out to Rimmon which bends toward Neah. 14 The border turned around on the north to Hannathon; and it ended at the valley of Iphtah El. 15 It included Kattath, Nahalal, Shimron, Idalah, and Bethlehem: twelve cities with their villages. 16 These towns and villages are the inheritance of the tribe of Zebulun according to its families. 17 The fourth lot came out to Issachar by their kindreds. 18 Their border was to Jezreel, Chesulloth, Shunem, 19 Hapharaim, Shion, Anaharath, 20 Rabbith, Kishion, Ebez, 21 Remeth, En Gannim, En Haddah, and Beth Pazzez; 22 and the border touches Tabor, Shahazumah, and Beth Shemesh. Its border ends at the Jordan; sixteen cities and their villages. 23 These towns and villages comprise the inheritance of the tribe of Issachar, according to its families. 24 And the fifth heritage came out for the tribe of Asher by their families. 25 The territorial boundary included Helkath, Hali, Beten, Achshaph, 26 Allammelech, Amad, and Mishal, and on the west Carmel and Shihor-libnath, 27 Then it turns eastward to Beth-dagon and touches Zebulun and the valley of Yiptah-El to the north to Beth Emeck and Neiel; it continues to Cabul from the north, 28 Ebron, Rehob, Hammon, and Kanah as far as Great Sidon. 29 The border turned to Ramah, to the fortified city of Tyre; and the border turned to Hosah. It ended at the sea by the region of Achzib; 30 Ummah, Aphek, and Rehob: Twenty and two cities with their villages. 31 These towns and villages are the inheritance of the tribe of Asher according to its families. 32 And the sixth lot came out for Nephthaleim, 33 Their border was from Heleph, from the oak in Zaanannim, Adami-nekeb, and Jabneel, to Lakkum. It ended at the Jordan. 34 And turning west to Aznoth-tabor, the limit goes out from there to Hukkok, stretching to Zebulun on the south, and Asher on the west, and Judah at Jordan on the east. 35 The fortified cities were Ziddim, Zer, Hammath, Rakkath, Chinnereth, 36 Adamah, Ramah, Hazor, 37 Kedesh, Edrei, En Hazor, 38 Iron, Migdal-el, Horem, Beth-anath, and Beth-shemesh, for a total of nineteen towns and their villages. 39 These towns and villages comprised the inheritance of the tribe of Naphtali according to its families. 40 The seventh lot came out for the tribe of the sons of Dan by their families. 41 The border of their inheritance was Zorah, Eshtaol, Ir Shemesh, 42 Shaalabbin, Aijalon, Ithlah, 43 Elon, Timnah, Ekron, 44 Eltekeh, Gibbethon, Baalath, 45 Jehud, Bene Berak, Gath Rimmon, 46 Me Jarkon, and Rakkon, with the border opposite Joppa. 47 The boundary of the children of Dan went too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, put it to the sword and occupied it. They lived there and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father. 48 These towns and villages comprised the inheritance of the tribe of Dan according to their families. 49 So the distribution of the land and its limits was complete; and the children of Israel gave Joshua, the son of Nun, a heritage among them; 50 According to the LORD’s commandment, they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in the hill country of Ephraim; and he built the city, and lived there. 51 These are the inheritances that Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the heads of the families of the tribes, distributed by allotment to the Israelites, at Shiloh before the LORD at the entrance of the tent of meeting. And they finished dividing the land.
