New International Version (1984)

Division of the Rest of the Land

18The whole assembly of the Israelites gathered at Shiloh and set up the Tent of Meeting there. The country was brought under their control,H5712H1121H3478H6950H7887H7931H168H4150H776H3533H6440 2but there were still seven Israelite tribes who had not yet received their inheritance.H3498H1121H3478H7651H7626H2505H5159 3So Joshua said to the Israelites: "How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you?H3091H559H1121H3478H7503H935H3423H776H3068H430H1H5414 4Appoint three men from each tribe. I will send them out to make a survey of the land and to write a description of it, according to the inheritance of each. Then they will return to me.H3051H7969H582H7626H7971H6965H1980H776H3789H6310H5159H935 5You are to divide the land into seven parts. Judah is to remain in its territory on the south and the house of Joseph in its territory on the north.H2505H7651H2506H3063H5975H1366H5045H1004H3130H5975H1366H6828 6After you have written descriptions of the seven parts of the land, bring them here to me and I will cast lots for you in the presence of the LORD our God.H3789H776H7651H2506H935H3384H1486H6440H3068H430 7The Levites, however, do not get a portion among you, because the priestly service of the LORD is their inheritance. And Gad, Reuben and the half-tribe of Manasseh have already received their inheritance on the east side of the Jordan. Moses the servant of the LORD gave it to them."H3881H2506H7130H3550H3068H5159H1410H7205H2677H7626H4519H3947H5159H5676H3383H4217H4872H5650H3068H5414 8As the men started on their way to map out the land, Joshua instructed them, "Go and make a survey of the land and write a description of it. Then return to me, and I will cast lots for you here at Shiloh in the presence of the LORD."H582H6965H3212H3091H6680H1980H3789H776H559H3212H1980H776H3789H7725H7993H1486H6440H3068H7887 9So the men left and went through the land. They wrote its description on a scroll, town by town, in seven parts, and returned to Joshua in the camp at Shiloh.H582H3212H5674H776H3789H5892H7651H2506H5612H935H3091H4264H7887 10Joshua then cast lots for them in Shiloh in the presence of the LORD, and there he distributed the land to the Israelites according to their tribal divisions.H3091H7993H1486H7887H6440H3068H3091H2505H776H1121H3478H4256

11The lot came up for the tribe of Benjamin, clan by clan.

This was the western side.H1366H8388H5437H6285H3220H5045H2022H6440H1032H5045H8444H7154H7157H5892H1121H3063H3220H6285 15The southern side began at the outskirts of Kiriath Jearim on the west, and the boundary came out at the spring of the waters of Nephtoah.H5045H6285H7097H7157H1366H3318H3220H3318H4599H4325H5318 16The boundary went down to the foot of the hill facing the Valley of Ben Hinnom, north of the Valley of Rephaim. It continued down the Hinnom Valley along the southern slope of the Jebusite city and so to En Rogel.H1366H3381H7097H2022H6440H1516H1121H2011H6010H7497H6828H3381H1516H2011H3802H2983H5045H3381H5883 17It then curved north, went to En Shemesh, continued to Geliloth, which faces the Pass of Adummim, and ran down to the Stone of Bohan son of Reuben.H8388H6828H3318H5885H3318H1553H5227H4608H131H3381H68H932H1121H7205 18It continued to the northern slope of Beth Arabah and on down into the Arabah.H5674H3802H4136H6160H6828H3381H6160 19It then went to the northern slope of Beth Hoglah and came out at the northern bay of the Salt Sea, at the mouth of the Jordan in the south. This was the southern boundary.H1366H5674H3802H1031H6828H8444H1366H6828H3956H4417H3220H5045H7097H3383H5045H1366 20The Jordan formed the boundary on the eastern side. These were the boundaries that marked out the inheritance of the clans of Benjamin on all sides.H3383H1379H6924H6285H5159H1121H1144H1367H5439H4940 21The tribe of Benjamin, clan by clan, had the following cities: Jericho, Beth Hoglah, Emek Keziz,H5892H4294H1121H1144H4940H3405H1031H6010H7104 22Beth Arabah, Zemaraim, Bethel,H1026H6787H1008 23Avvim, Parah, Ophrah,H5761H6511H6084 24Kephar Ammoni, Ophni and Geba--twelve towns and their villages.H3726H6078H1387H8147H6240H5892H2691 25Gibeon, Ramah, Beeroth,H1391H7414H881 26Mizpah, Kephirah, Mozah,H4708H3716H4681 27Rekem, Irpeel, Taralah,H7552H3416H8634 28Zelah, Haeleph, the Jebusite city (that is, Jerusalem), Gibeah and Kiriath--fourteen towns and their villages.
