13:1 Now Joshua was old [and] advanced in years; and the LORD
said to him Thou art old [and] advanced in years, and there
remaineth yet very much land to be possessed.
13:2 This [is] the land that yet remaineth: all the borders of
the Philistines, and all Geshuri,
13:3 From Sihor, which [is] before Egypt, even to the borders of
Ekron northward, [which] is counted to the Canaanite: five
lords of the Philistines; the Gazathites, and the Ashdothites,
the Eshkalonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the
13:4 From the south all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah
that [is] beside the Sidonians, to Aphek to the borders of the
13:5 And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon towards the
sun-rising, from Baal-gad under mount Hermon to the entering
13:6 And the inhabitants of the hill-country from Lebanon to
Misrephoth-maim, [and] all the Sidonians, them will I drive out
from before the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot
to the Israelites for an inheritance, as I have commanded thee.
13:7 Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance to the
nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh,
13:8 With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received
their inheritance, which Moses gave them, beyond Jordan
eastward, [even] as Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.
13:9 From Aroer that [is] upon the bank of the river Arnon, and
the city that [is] in the midst of the river, and all the plain
of Medeba to Dibon;
13:10 And all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, who
reigned in Heshbon, to the border of the children of Ammon;
13:11 And Gilead, and the border of the Geshurites and
Maachathites, and all mount Hermon, and all Bashan to Salcah;
13:12 All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth
and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants. For
these did Moses smite, and cast them out.
13:13 Nevertheless, the children of Israel expelled not the
Geshurites, nor the Maachathites: but the Geshurites and the
Maachathites dwell among the Israelites until this day.
13:14 Only to the tribe of Levi he gave no inheritance; the
sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire [are] their
inheritance, as he said to them.
13:15 And Moses gave to the tribe of the children of Reuben
[inheritance] according to their families.
13:16 And their border was from Aroer that [is] on the bank of
the river Arnon, and the city that [is] in the midst of the
river, and all the plain by Medeba;
13:17 Heshbon, and all her cities that [are] in the plain;
Dibon, and Bamoth-baal, and Beth-baal-meon,
13:18 And Jahaza, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath,
13:19 And Kirjathaim, and Sibmah, and Zareth-shahar in the mount
of the valley,
13:20 And Beth-peor, and Ashdoth-pisgah, and Beth-jeshimoth,
13:21 And all the cities of the plain, and all the kingdom of
Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses
smote with the princes of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and
Hur, and Reba, dukes of Sihon, dwelling in the country.
13:22 Balaam also the son of Beor, the sooth-sayer, did the
children of Israel slay with the sword, among them that were
slain by them.
13:23 And the border of the children of Reuben was Jordan, and
its border. This [was] the inheritance of the children of
Reuben after their families, the cities and their villages.
13:24 And Moses gave [inheritance] to the tribe of Gad, [even]
to the children of Gad according to their families.
13:25 And their border was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead,
and half the land of the children of Ammon, to Aroer that [is]
13:26 And from Heshbon to Ramath-mizpeh, and Betonim; and from
Mahanaim to the border of Debir;
13:27 And in the valley, Beth-aram, and Beth-nimrah, and
Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of
Heshbon, Jordan and [its] border, [even] to the edge of the sea
of Cinneroth, on the other side of Jordan eastward.
13:28 This [is] the inheritance of the children of Gad after
their families, the cities, and their villages.
13:29 And Moses gave [inheritance] to the half-tribe of
Manasseh: and [this] was [the possession] of the half-tribe of
the children of Manasseh by their families.
13:30 And their border was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the
kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Jair, which
[are] in Bashan, sixty cities:
13:31 And half Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the
kingdom of Og in Bashan, [were pertaining] to the children of
Machir the son of Manasseh, [even] to the one half of the
children of Machir by their families.
13:32 These [are the countries] which Moses distributed for
inheritance in the plains of Moab, on the other side of Jordan
by Jericho eastward.
13:33 But to the tribe of Levi Moses gave not [any] inheritance:
the LORD God of Israel [was] their inheritance, as he said to
