Simeon. 1The second lot fell to Simeon. The heritage of the clans of the tribe of Simeonites lay within that of the Judahites. 2 l 2–8: 1 Chr 4, 28–33 . For their heritage they received Beersheba, Shema, Moladah, 3Hazar‐shual, Balah, Ezem, 4Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah, 5Ziklag, Beth‐marcaboth, Hazar‐susah, 6Beth‐lebaoth and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their villages. 7Also En‐rimmon, Ether and Ashan; four cities and their villages, 8besides all the villages around these cities as far as Baalath‐beer (that is, Ramoth‐negeb). This was the heritage of the clans of the tribe of the Simeonites. 9This heritage of the Simeonites was within the confines of the Judahites; for since the portion of the latter was too large for them, the Simeonites obtained their heritage within it.

Zebulun. 10 *The third lot fell to the clans of the Zebulunites. The limit of their heritage was at Sarid. 11Their boundary went up west … and through Mareal, reaching Dabbesheth and the wadi that is near Jokneam. 12From Sarid eastward it ran to the district of Chislothtabor, on to Daberath, and up to Japhia. 13From there it continued eastward to Gath‐hepher and to Eth‐kazin, extended to Rimmon, and turned to Neah. 14Skirting north of Hannathon, the boundary ended at the valley of Iphtahel. 15Thus, with Kattath, Nahalal, Shimron, Idalah and Bethlehem, there were twelve cities and their villages 16to comprise the heritage of the clans of the Zebulunites.

Issachar. 17 *The fourth lot fell to Issachar. The territory of the clans of the Issacharites 18included Jezreel, Chesulloth, Shunem, 19Hapharaim, Shion, Anaharath, 20Rabbith, Kishion, Ebez, 21Remeth, En‐gannim, En‐haddah and Beth‐pazzez. 22The boundary reached Tabor, Shahazumah and Beth‐shemesh, ending at the Jordan. These sixteen cities and their villages 23were the heritage of the clans of the Issacharites.

Asher. 24 *The fifth lot fell to the clans of the tribe of the Asherites. 25Their territory included Helkath, Hali, Beten, Achshaph, 26Allammelech, Amad and Mishal, and reached Carmel on the west, and Shihor‐libnath. 27In the other direction, it ran eastward of Beth‐dagon, reached Zebulun and the valley of Iphtahel; then north of Beth‐emek and Neiel, it extended to Cabul, 28Mishal, Abdon, Rehob, m 28f: Jgs 1, 31 . Hammon and Kanah, near Greater Sidon. 29Then the boundary turned back to Ramah and to the fortress city of Tyre; thence it cut back to Hosah and ended at the sea. Thus, with Mahalab, Achzib, 30Ummah, Acco, Aphek and Rehob, there were twenty‐two cities and their villages 31to comprise the heritage of the clans of the tribe of the Asherites.

Naphtali. 32 *The sixth lot fell to the Naphtalites. The boundary of the clans of the Naphtalites 33extended from Heleph, from the oak at Zaanannim to Lakkum, including Adami‐nekeb and Jabneel, and ended at the Jordan. 34In the opposite direction, westerly, it ran through Aznoth‐tabor and from there extended to Hukkok; it touched Zebulun on the south, Asher on the west, and the Jordan on the east. 35The fortified cities were Ziddim, Zer, Hammath, Rakkath, Chinnereth, 36Adamah, Ramah, Hazor, 37Kedesh, Edrei, En‐hazor, 38Yiron, Migdal‐el, Horem, Bethanath and Beth‐shemesh; n Jgs 1, 33 . nineteen cities and their villages, 39to comprise the heritage of the clans of the tribe of the Naphtalites.

Dan. 40 *The seventh lot fell to the clans of the tribe of Danites. 41Their heritage was the territory of Zorah, Eshtaol, Ir‐shemesh, 42Shaalabbin, Aijalon, Ithlah, o Jgs 1, 35 . 43Elon, Timnah, Ekron, 44Eltekoh, Gibbethon, Baalath, 45Jehud, Bene‐berak, Gath‐rimmon, 46Mejarkon and Rakkon, with the coast at Joppa. 47 p Jgs 18, 27–29 . But the territory of the Danites was too small for them; so the Danites marched up and attacked Leshem,* which they captured and put to the sword. Once they had taken possession of Leshem, they renamed the settlement after their ancestor Dan. 48These cities and their villages were the heritage of the clans of the tribe of the Danites.

Joshua's City. 49When the last of them had received the portions of the land they were to inherit, the Israelites assigned a heritage in their midst to Joshua, son of Nun. 50In obedience to the command of the LORD, they gave him the city which he requested, Timnah‐serah q Jos 24, 30; Jgs 2, 9 . in the mountain region of Ephraim. He rebuilt the city and made it his home.

51These are the final portions into which Eleazar the priest, Joshua, son of Nun, and the heads of families in the tribes of the Israelites divided the land by lot in the presence of the LORD, at the door of the meeting tent in Shiloh.
