The Land Yet to Be Conquered

13When Joshua was an old man, the LORD said to him, "You are growing old, and much land remains to be conquered.H3091H2204H935H3117H3068H559H2204H935H3117H7604H3966H7235H776H3423 2This is the territory that remains: all the regions of the Philistines and the Geshurites,H776H7604H1552H6430H1651 3and the larger territory of the Canaanites, extending from the stream of Shihor on the border of Egypt, northward to the boundary of Ekron. It includes the territory of the five Philistine rulers of Gaza, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gath, and Ekron. The land of the AvvitesH7883H6440H4714H1366H6138H6828H2803H3669H2568H5633H6430H5841H796H832H1663H6139H5761 4in the south also remains to be conquered. In the north, the following area has not yet been conquered: all the land of the Canaanites, including Mearah (which belongs to the Sidonians), stretching northward to Aphek on the border of the Amorites;H8486H776H3669H4632H6722H663H1366H567 5the land of the Gebalites and all of the Lebanon mountain area to the east, from Baal-gad below Mount Hermon to Lebo-hamath;H776H1382H3844H4217H8121H1171H2022H2768H935H2574 6and all the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth-maim, including all the land of the Sidonians."I myself will drive these people out of the land ahead of the Israelites. So be sure to give this land to Israel as a special possession, just as I have commanded you.H3427H2022H3844H4956H6722H3423H6440H1121H3478H5307H3478H5159H6680 7Include all this territory as Israel's possession when you divide this land among the nine tribes and the half-tribe of Manasseh."H2505H776H5159H8672H7626H2677H7626H4519

The Land Divided East of the Jordan

8Half the tribe of Manasseh and the tribes of Reuben and Gad had already received their grants of land on the east side of the Jordan, for Moses, the servant of the LORD, had previously assigned this land to them.H7206H1425H3947H5159H4872H5414H5676H3383H4217H4872H5650H3068H5414 9Their territory extended from Aroer on the edge of the Arnon Gorge (including the town in the middle of the gorge) to the plain beyond Medeba, as far as Dibon.H6177H8193H5158H769H5892H8432H5158H4334H4311H1769 10It also included all the towns of King Sihon of the Amorites, who had reigned in Heshbon, and extended as far as the borders of Ammon.H5892H5511H4428H567H4427H2809H1366H1121H5983 11It included Gilead, the territory of the kingdoms of Geshur and Maacah, all of Mount Hermon, all of Bashan as far as Salecah,H1568H1366H1651H4602H2022H2768H1316H5548 12and all the territory of King Og of Bashan, who had reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei. King Og was the last of the Rephaites, for Moses had attacked them and driven them out.H4468H5747H1316H4427H6252H154H7604H3499H7497H4872H5221H3423 13But the Israelites failed to drive out the people of Geshur and Maacah, so they continue to live among the Israelites to this day.H1121H3478H3423H1651H4602H1650H4601H3427H7130H3478H3117

An Allotment for the Tribe of Levi

14Moses did not assign any allotment of land to the tribe of Levi. Instead, as the LORD had promised them, their allotment came from the offerings burned on the altar to the LORD, the God of Israel.H7626H3878H5414H5159H801H3068H430H3478H801H5159H1696

The Land Given to the Tribe of Reuben

15Moses had assigned the following area to the clans of the tribe of Reuben.H4872H5414H4294H1121H7205H4940 16Their territory extended from Aroer on the edge of the Arnon Gorge (including the town in the middle of the gorge) to the plain beyond Medeba.H1366H6177H8193H5158H769H5892H8432H5158H4334H4311 17It included Heshbon and the other towns on the plain—Dibon, Bamoth-baal, Beth-baal-meon,H2809H5892H4334H1769H1120H1010 18Jahaz, Kedemoth, Mephaath,H3096H6932H4158 19Kiriathaim, Sibmah, Zereth-shahar on the hill above the valley,H7156H7643H6890H2022H6010 20Beth-peor, the slopes of Pisgah, and Beth-jeshimoth.H1047H798H794H1020 21The land of Reuben also included all the towns of the plain and the entire kingdom of Sihon. Sihon was the Amorite king who had reigned in Heshbon and was killed by Moses along with the leaders of Midian—Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba—princes living in the region who were allied with Sihon.H5892H4334H4468H5511H4428H567H4427H2809H4872H5221H5387H4080H189H7552H6698H2354H7254H5257H5511H3427H776 22The Israelites had also killed Balaam son of Beor, who used magic to tell the future.H1109H1121H1160H7080H1121H3478H2026H2719H413H2491 23The Jordan River marked the western boundary for the tribe of Reuben. The towns and their surrounding villages in this area were given as a homeland to the clans of the tribe of Reuben.H1366H1121H7205H3383H1366H5159H1121H7205H4940H5892H2691

The Land Given to the Tribe of Gad

24Moses had assigned the following area to the clans of the tribe of Gad.H4872H5414H4294H1410H1121H1410H4940 25Their territory included Jazer, all the towns of Gilead, and half of the land of Ammon, as far as the town of Aroer just west of Rabbah.H1366H3270H5892H1568H2677H776H1121H5983H6177H6440H7237 26It extended from Heshbon to Ramath-mizpeh and Betonim, and from Mahanaim to the territory of Lo-debar.H2809H7434H993H4266H1366H1688 27In the valley were Beth-haram, Beth-nimrah, Succoth, Zaphon, and the rest of the kingdom of King Sihon of Heshbon. The western boundary ran along the Jordan River, extended as far north as the tip of the Sea of Galilee, and then turned eastward.H6010H1027H1039H5523H6829H3499H4468H5511H4428H2809H3383H1366H7097H3220H3672H5676H3383H4217 28The towns and their surrounding villages in this area were given as a homeland to the clans of the tribe of Gad.H5159H1121H1410H4940H5892H2691

The Land Given to the Half-Tribe of Manasseh

29Moses had assigned the following area to the clans of the half-tribe of Manasseh.H4872H5414H2677H7626H4519H2677H4294H1121H4519H4940 30Their territory extended from Mahanaim, including all of Bashan, all the former kingdom of King Og, and the sixty towns of Jair in Bashan.H1366H4266H1316H4468H5747H4428H1316H2333H2971H1316H8346H5892 31It also included half of Gilead and King Og's royal cities of Ashtaroth and Edrei. All this was given to the clans of the descendants of Makir, who was Manasseh's son.H2677H1568H6252H154H5892H4468H5747H1316H1121H4353H1121H4519H2677H1121H4353H4940 32These are the allotments Moses had made while he was on the plains of Moab, across the Jordan River, east of Jericho.H4872H5157H6160H4124H5676H3383H3405H4217 33But Moses gave no allotment of land to the tribe of Levi, for the LORD, the God of Israel, had promised that he himself would be their allotment.H7626H3878H4872H5414H5159H3068H430H3478H5159H1696
