The Book of Joshua

Chapter 18

1

And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together11 at Shiloh, and set up55 the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued8 before them.

2

And there remained11 among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received1 their inheritance.

3

And Joshua said4 unto the children of Israel, How long [are] ye slack102 to go2 to possess2 the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given1 you?

4

Give3 out from among you three men for [each] tribe: and I will send4 them, and they shall rise,4 and go101 through the land, and describe4 it according to the inheritance of them; and they shall come4 [again] to me.

5

And they shall divide98 it into seven parts: Judah shall abide4 in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide4 in their coasts on the north.

6

Ye shall therefore describe4 the land [into] seven parts, and bring52 [the description] hither to me, that I may cast1 lots for you here before the LORD our God.

7

But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD [is] their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received1 their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave1 them.

8

And the men arose,4 and went away:4 and Joshua charged17 them that went6 to describe2 the land, saying,2 Go3 and walk100 through the land, and describe3 it, and come again3 to me, that I may here cast55 lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.

9

And the men went4 and passed through4 the land, and described4 it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came4 [again] to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.

10

And Joshua cast55 lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided17 the land unto the children of Israel according to their divisions.

11

And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up4 according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth4 between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.

12

And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the border went up1 to the side of Jericho on the north side, and went up1 through the mountains westward; and the goings out thereof were at the wilderness of Bethaven.

13

And the border went over1 from thence toward Luz, to the side of Luz, which [is] Bethel, southward; and the border descended1 to Atarothadar, near the hill that [lieth] on the south side of the nether Bethhoron.

14

And the border was drawn1 [thence], and compassed8 the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that [lieth] before Bethhoron southward; and the goings out thereof were at Kirjathbaal, which [is] Kirjathjearim, a city of the children of Judah: this [was] the west quarter.

15

And the south quarter [was] from the end of Kirjathjearim, and the border went out1 on the west, and went out1 to the well of waters of Nephtoah:

16

And the border came down1 to the end of the mountain that [lieth] before the valley of the son of Hinnom, [and] which [is] in the valley of the giants on the north, and descended1 to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended1 to Enrogel,

17

And was drawn1 from the north, and went forth1 to Enshemesh, and went forth1 toward Geliloth, which [is] over against the going up of Adummim, and descended1 to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,

18

And passed along1 toward the side over against Arabah northward, and went down1 unto Arabah:

19

And the border passed along1 to the side of Bethhoglah northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this [was] the south coast.

20

And Jordan was the border4 of it on the east side. This [was] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round about, according to their families.

21

Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the valley of Keziz,

22

And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,

23

And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,

24

And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve 6240 cities with their villages:

25

Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,

26

And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,

27

And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,

28

And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which [is] Jerusalem, Gibeath, 1394 [and] Kirjath; fourteen 6240 cities with their villages. This [is] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.
