The Land Given to the Tribe of Judah

15The allotment for the clans of the tribe of Judah reached southward to the border of Edom, as far south as the wilderness of Zin.H1486H4294H1121H3063H4940H1366H123H4057H6790H5045H7097H8486 2The southern boundary began at the south bay of the Dead Sea,H5045H1366H7097H4417H3220H3956H6437H5045 3ran south of Scorpion Pass into the wilderness of Zin, and then went south of Kadesh-barnea to Hezron. Then it went up to Addar, where it turned toward Karka.H3318H5045H4610H5674H6790H5927H5045H6947H5674H2696H5927H146H5437H7173 4From there it passed to Azmon until it finally reached the Brook of Egypt, which it followed to the Mediterranean Sea. This was their southern boundary.H5674H6111H3318H5158H4714H8444H1366H3220H5045H1366 5The eastern boundary extended along the Dead Sea to the mouth of the Jordan River. The northern boundary began at the bay where the Jordan River empties into the Dead Sea,H6924H1366H4417H3220H7097H3383H1366H6828H6285H3956H3220H7097H3383 6went up from there to Beth-hoglah, then proceeded north of Beth-arabah to the Stone of Bohan. (Bohan was Reuben's son.)H1366H5927H1031H5674H6828H1026H1366H5927H68H932H1121H7205 7From that point it went through the valley of Achor to Debir, turning north toward Gilgal, which is across from the slopes of Adummim on the south side of the valley. From there the boundary extended to the springs at En-shemesh and on to En-rogel.H1366H5927H1688H6010H5911H6828H6437H1537H5227H4608H131H5045H5158H1366H5674H4325H5885H8444H5883 8The boundary then passed through the valley of Ben-Hinnom, along the southern slopes of the Jebusites, where the city of Jerusalem is located. Then it went west to the top of the mountain above the valley of Hinnom, and on up to the northern end of the valley of Rephaim.H1366H5927H1516H1121H2011H5045H3802H2983H3389H1366H5927H7218H2022H6440H1516H2011H3220H7097H6010H7497H6828 9From there the boundary extended from the top of the mountain to the spring at the waters of Nephtoah, and from there to the towns on Mount Ephron. Then it turned toward Baalah (that is, Kiriath-jearim).H1366H8388H7218H2022H4599H4325H5318H3318H5892H2022H6085H1366H8388H1173H7157 10The boundary circled west of Baalah to Mount Seir, passed along to the town of Kesalon on the northern slope of Mount Jearim, and went down to Beth-shemesh and on to Timnah.H1366H5437H1173H3220H2022H8165H5674H3802H2022H3297H3693H6828H3381H1053H5674H8553 11The boundary then proceeded to the slope of the hill north of Ekron, where it turned toward Shikkeron and Mount Baalah. It passed Jabneel and ended at the Mediterranean Sea.H1366H3318H3802H6138H6828H1366H8388H7942H5674H2022H1173H3318H2995H8444H1366H3220 12The western boundary was the shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea. These are the boundaries for the clans of the tribe of Judah.H3220H1366H1419H3220H1366H1366H1121H3063H5439H4940

The Land Given to Caleb

13The LORD commanded Joshua to assign some of Judah's territory to Caleb son of Jephunneh. So Caleb was given the town of Kiriath-arba (that is, Hebron), which had been named after Anak's ancestor.H3612H1121H3312H5414H2506H8432H1121H3063H413H6310H3068H3091H7151H704H7153H1H6061H2275 14Caleb drove out the three groups of Anakites—the descendants of Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai, the sons of Anak.H3612H3423H7969H1121H6061H8344H289H8526H3211H6061 15From there he went to fight against the people living in the town of Debir (formerly called Kiriath-sepher).H5927H3427H1688H8034H1688H6440H7158 16Caleb said, "I will give my daughter Acsah in marriage to the one who attacks and captures Kiriath-sepher."H3612H559H5221H7158H3920H5414H5915H1323H802 17Othniel, the son of Caleb's brother Kenaz, was the one who conquered it, so Acsah became Othniel's wife.H6274H1121H7073H251H3612H3920H5414H5915H1323H802 18When Acsah married Othniel, she urged him to ask her father for a field. As she got down off her donkey, Caleb asked her, "What's the matter?"H935H5496H7592H1H7704H6795H2543H3612H559 19She said, "Give me another gift. You have already given me land in the Negev; now please give me springs of water, too." So Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.H559H5414H1293H5414H5045H776H5414H1543H4325H5414H5942H1543H8482H1543
