The Book of Joshua

Chapter 13

1

Now Joshua was old1 [and] stricken1 in years; and the LORD said4 unto him, Thou art old1 [and] stricken1 in years, and there remaineth8 yet very much53 land to be possessed.2

2

This [is] the land that yet remaineth:12 all the borders of the Philistines, and all Geshuri,

3

From Sihor, which [is] before Egypt, even unto the borders of Ekron northward, [which] is counted11 to the Canaanite: five lords of the Philistines; the Gazathites, and the Ashdothites, the Eshkalonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the Avites:

4

From the south, 8487 all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah 4631 that [is] beside the Sidonians, unto Aphek, to the borders of the Amorites:

5

And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising, 8121 from Baalgad under mount Hermon unto the entering into2 Hamath.

6

All the inhabitants6 of the hill country from Lebanon unto Misrephothmaim, [and] all the Sidonians, them will I drive out55 from before the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot54 unto the Israelites for an inheritance, as I have commanded14 thee.

7

Now therefore divide16 this land for an inheritance unto the nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh,

8

With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received1 their inheritance, which Moses gave1 them, beyond Jordan eastward, [even] as Moses the servant of the LORD gave1 them;

9

From Aroer, that [is] upon the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that [is] in the midst of the river, and all the plain of Medeba unto Dibon;

10

And all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned1 in Heshbon, unto the border of the children of Ammon;

11

And Gilead, and the border of the Geshurites and Maachathites, and all mount Hermon, and all Bashan unto Salcah;

12

All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned1 in Ashtaroth and in Edrei, who remained8 of the remnant of the giants: for these did Moses smite,55 and cast them out.55

13

Nevertheless the children of Israel expelled52 not the Geshurites, nor the Maachathites: but the Geshurites and the Maachathites dwell4 among the Israelites until this day.

14

Only unto the tribe of Levi he gave1 none inheritance; the sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire [are] their inheritance, as he said14 unto them.

15

And Moses gave4 unto the tribe of the children of Reuben [inheritance] according to their families.

16

And their coast was from Aroer, that [is] on the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that [is] in the midst of the river, and all the plain by Medeba;

17

Heshbon, and all her cities that [are] in the plain; Dibon, and Bamothbaal, 1116 and Bethbaalmeon,

18

And Jahazah, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath,

19

And Kirjathaim, and Sibmah, and Zarethshahar in the mount of the valley,

20

And Bethpeor, and Ashdothpisgah, 6449 798 and Bethjeshimoth,

21

And all the cities of the plain, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned1 in Heshbon, whom Moses smote52 with the princes of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, [which were] dukes of Sihon, dwelling6 in the country.

22

Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer,6 did the children of Israel slay1 with the sword among them that were slain by them.

23

And the border of the children of Reuben was Jordan, and the border [thereof]. This [was] the inheritance of the children of Reuben after their families, the cities and the villages thereof.

24

And Moses gave4 [inheritance] unto the tribe of Gad, [even] unto the children of Gad according to their families.

25

And their coast was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the children of Ammon, unto Aroer that [is] before Rabbah;

26

And from Heshbon unto Ramathmizpeh, and Betonim; and from Mahanaim unto the border of Debir;

27

And in the valley, Betharam, and Bethnimrah, and Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, Jordan and [his] border, [even] unto the edge of the sea of Chinnereth on the other side Jordan eastward.

28

This [is] the inheritance of the children of Gad after their families, the cities, and their villages.

29

And Moses gave4 [inheritance] unto the half tribe of Manasseh: and [this] was [the possession] of the half tribe of the children of Manasseh by their families.

30

And their coast was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Jair, which [are] in Bashan, threescore cities:

31

And half Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, [were pertaining] unto the children of Machir the son of Manasseh, [even] to the one half of the children of Machir by their families.

32

These [are the countries] which Moses did distribute for inheritance14 in the plains of Moab, on the other side Jordan, by Jericho, eastward.

33

But unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave1 not [any] inheritance: the LORD God of Israel [was] their inheritance, as he said14 unto them.
