Joshua 18


18:1 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel
 assembled at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the
 congregation there: and the land was subdued before them.
18:2 And there remained among the children of Israel seven
 tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance.
18:3 And Joshua said to the children of Israel, How long [are]
 ye slack to go to possess the land which the LORD God of your
 fathers hath given you?
18:4 Select from among you three men for [each] tribe: and I
 will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land,
 and describe it according to the inheritance of them, and they
 shall come [again] to me.
18:5 And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall
 abide in their border on the south, and the house of Joseph
 shall abide in their borders on the north.
18:6 Ye shall therefore describe the land [in] seven parts, and
 bring [the description] hither to me, that I may cast lots for
 you here before the LORD our God.
18:7 But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood
 of the LORD [is] their inheritance. And Gad, and Reuben, and
 half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance
 beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD
 gave them.
18:8 And the men arose, and departed: and Joshua charged them
 that went to describe the land, saying, Go, and walk through
 the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may
 here cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.
18:9 And the men went and passed through the land, and described
 it by cities in seven parts in a book, and came [again], to
 Joshua to the host at Shiloh.
18:10 And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD:
 and there Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel
 according to their divisions.
18:11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came
 up according to their families: and the border of their lot
 came forth between the children of Judah and the children of
 Joseph.
18:12 And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and
 the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side,
 and went up through the mountains westward; and the limits of
 it were at the wilderness of Beth-aven.
18:13 And the border went over from thence towards Luz, to the
 side of Luz (which [is] Beth-el) southward; and the border
 descended to Ataroth-adar, near the hill that [lieth] on the
 south side of the nether Beth-horon.
18:14 And the border was drawn [thence], and compassed the
 corner of the sea southward, from the hill that [lieth] before
 Beth-horon southward; and the limits of it were at Kirjath-baal
 (which [is] Kirjath-jearim) a city of the children of Judah.
 This [was] the west quarter.
18:15 And the south quarter [was] from the end of Kirjah-jearim,
 and the border went out on the west, and went out to the well
 of waters of Nephtoah:
18:16 And the border came down to the end of the mountain that
 [lieth] before the valley of the son of Hinnom, [and] which
 [is] in the valley of the giants on the north, and descended to
 the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and
 descended to En-rogel,
18:17 And was drawn from the north, and went forth to
 En-shemesh, and went forth towards Geliloth, which [is] over
 against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of
 Bohan the son of Reuben,
18:18 And passed along towards the side over against Arabah
 northward, and went down to Arabah:
18:19 And the border passed along to the side of Beth-hoglah
 northward: and the limits of the border were at the north bay
 of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan. This [was] the
 south border.
18:20 And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This
 [was] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the
 limits of it round about, according to their families.
18:21 Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin,
 according to their families, were Jericho, and Beth-hoglah, and
 the valley of Keziz,
18:22 And Beth-arabah, and Zemaraim, and Beth-el,
18:23 And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,
18:24 And Chephar-haamonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities
 with their villages:
18:25 Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,
18:26 And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,
18:27 And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,
18:28 And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, (which [is] Jerusalem)
 Gibeath, [and] Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages.
 This [is] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according
 to their families.
