Joshua 14

14:1 And these [are the countries] which the children of Israel
 inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, and
 Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the
 tribes of the children of Israel distributed for inheritance to
14:2 By lot [was] their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by
 the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and [for] the
14:3 For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and a
 half-tribe on the other side of Jordan: but to the Levites he
 gave no inheritance among them.
14:4 For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and
 Ephraim: therefore they gave no part to the Levites in the
 land, save cities to dwell [in], with their suburbs for their
 cattle, and for their substance.
14:5 As the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did,
 and they divided the land.
14:6 Then the children of Judah came to Joshua in Gilgal: and
 Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said to him, Thou
 knowest the thing that the LORD said to Moses the man of God
 concerning me and thee in Kadesh-barnea.
14:7 Forty years old [was] I when Moses the servant of the LORD
 sent me from Kadesh-barnea to explore the land; and I brought
 him word again as it [was] in my heart.
14:8 Nevertheless, my brethren that went up with me made the
 heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my
14:9 And Moses swore on that day, saying, Surely the land on
 which thy feet have trodden shall be thy inheritance, and thy
 children's for ever; because thou hast wholly followed the LORD
 my God.
14:10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said,
 these forty and five years, even since the LORD spoke this word
 to Moses, while [the children of] Israel wandered in the
 wilderness: and now, lo, I [am] this day eighty five years old.
14:11 As yet I [am as] strong this day, as [I was] in the day
 that Moses sent me: as my strength [was] then, even so [is] my
 strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.
14:12 Now therefore give me this mountain, of which the LORD
 spoke in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the
 Anakims [were] there, and [that] the cities [were] great [and]
 fortified: if the LORD [will be] with me, then I shall be able
 to drive them out, as the LORD said.
14:13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave to Caleb the son of
 Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.
14:14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son
 of Jephunneh the Kenezite to this day; because that he wholly
 followed the LORD God of Israel.
14:15 And the name of Hebron before [was] Kirjath-arba; [which
 Arba was] a great man among the Anakims. And the land had rest
 from war.
