Land Distribution at Shiloh

18The entire Israelite community assembled at Shiloh where it set up the tent of meeting there; the land had been subdued by them.H5712H1121H3478H6950H7887H7931H168H4150H776H3533H6440 2Seven tribes among the Israelites were left who had not divided up their inheritance.H3498H1121H3478H7651H7626H2505H5159 3So Joshua said to the Israelites, "How long will you delay going out to take possession of the land that the LORD, the God of your fathers, gave you?H3091H559H1121H3478H7503H935H3423H776H3068H430H1H5414 4Appoint for yourselves three men from each tribe, and I will send them out. They are to go and survey the land, write a description of it for the purpose of their inheritance, and return to me.H3051H7969H582H7626H7971H6965H1980H776H3789H6310H5159H935 5Then they are to divide it into seven portions. Judah is to remain in its territory in the south, and Joseph's family in their territory in the north.H2505H7651H2506H3063H5975H1366H5045H1004H3130H5975H1366H6828 6When you have written a description of the seven portions of land and brought it to me, I will cast lots for you here in the presence of the LORD our God.H3789H776H7651H2506H935H3384H1486H6440H3068H430 7But the Levites among you do not get a portion, because their inheritance is the priesthood of the LORD. Gad, Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh have taken their inheritance beyond the Jordan to the east, which Moses the LORD's servant gave them."H3881H2506H7130H3550H3068H5159H1410H7205H2677H7626H4519H3947H5159H5676H3383H4217H4872H5650H3068H5414 8As the men prepared to go, Joshua commanded them to write down a description of the land, saying, "Go and survey the land, write a description of it, and return to me. I will then cast lots for you here in Shiloh in the presence of the LORD."H582H6965H3212H3091H6680H1980H3789H776H559H3212H1980H776H3789H7725H7993H1486H6440H3068H7887 9So the men left, went through the land, and described it by towns in a document of seven sections. They returned to Joshua at the camp in Shiloh.H582H3212H5674H776H3789H5892H7651H2506H5612H935H3091H4264H7887 10Joshua cast lots for them at Shiloh in the presence of the LORD where he distributed the land to the Israelites according to their divisions.H3091H7993H1486H7887H6440H3068H3091H2505H776H1121H3478H4256

Benjamin’s Inheritance

11The lot came up for the tribe of Benjamin's descendants by their clans, and their allotted territory lay between Judah's descendants and Joseph's descendants.H1486H4294H1121H1144H5927H4940H1366H1486H3318H1121H3063H1121H3130 12Their border on the north side began at the Jordan, ascended to the slope of Jericho on the north, through the hill country westward, and ended at the wilderness of Beth-aven.H1366H6828H6285H3383H1366H5927H3802H3405H6828H5927H2022H3220H8444H4057H1007 13From there the border went toward Luz, to the southern slope of Luz (that is, Bethel); it then went down by Ataroth-addar, over the hill south of Lower Beth-horon.H1366H5674H3870H3802H3870H1008H5045H1366H3381H5853H2022H5045H8481H1032 14On the west side, from the hill facing Beth-horon on the south, the border curved, turning southward, and ended at Kiriath-baal (that is, Kiriath-jearim), a city of the descendants of Judah. This was the west side [of their border].H1366H8388H5437H6285H3220H5045H2022H6440H1032H5045H8444H7154H7157H5892H1121H3063H3220H6285 15The south side began at the edge of Kiriath-jearim, and the border extended westward; it went to the spring at the Waters of Nephtoah.H5045H6285H7097H7157H1366H3318H3220H3318H4599H4325H5318 16The border descended to the foot of the hill that faces the Valley of Hinnom at the northern end of the Valley of Rephaim. It ran down the Valley of Hinnom toward the south Jebusite slope and downward to En-rogel.H1366H3381H7097H2022H6440H1516H1121H2011H6010H7497H6828H3381H1516H2011H3802H2983H5045H3381H5883 17It curved northward and went to En-shemesh and on to Geliloth, which is opposite the ascent of Adummim, and continued down to the Stone of Bohan, Reuben's son.H8388H6828H3318H5885H3318H1553H5227H4608H131H3381H68H932H1121H7205 18Then it went north to the slope opposite the Jordan Valleyand proceeded into the valley.H5674H3802H4136H6160H6828H3381H6160 19The border continued to the north slope of Beth-hoglah and ended at the northern bay of the Dead Sea, at the southern end of the Jordan. This was the southern border.H1366H5674H3802H1031H6828H8444H1366H6828H3956H4417H3220H5045H7097H3383H5045H1366 20The Jordan formed the border on the east side. This was the inheritance of Benjamin's descendants, by their clans, according to its surrounding borders.H3383H1379H6924H6285H5159H1121H1144H1367H5439H4940
