Text Commentary side-by-side

18.1–19.51 : The territory of the seven other tribes.

1–10 :

Preparations for the further division of the land.

1 :

Shiloh, in Ephraim, ten miles north of Bethel, was the new religious center, replacing Gilgal; see 19.51; 21.2; 22.9, 12; Judg. 18.31; 1 Sam. 1.3; 4.3–4 . Tent of Meeting: see Exod. 26.1–37 n.

11–28 :

The territory of Benjamin, between Judah and Joseph.

19.1–9 :

The territory of Simeon lay within Judah, because the Judahite share was larger than they needed (v. 9 ). Simeon had once been powerful (see Gen. 34.1–31 n.; 49.5–7 n. ); it seems secondary to Judah here and is not mentioned in the blessings of Deut. ch. 33 . Some scholars believe it disappeared as a separate tribe.

10–48 :

The territory of the Galilee tribes.

10–16 :

Zebulun.

17–23 :

Issachar.

24–31 :

Asher.

32–39 :

Naphtali.

40–48 :

Dan never conquered these southern lands west of Benjamin (vv. 41–46 ); after being forced out, by the Amorites (Judg. 1.34–35 ) or by the Philistines (Judg. chs. 13–16 ), they then emigrated north (v. 47 ) to Leshem (Laish); see Judg. 18.27 .

49–51 :

These verses conclude the distribution of land to the tribes.
