Joshua 15

15:1 [This] then was the lot of the tribe of the children of
 Judah by their families; [even] to the border of Edom, the
 wilderness of Zin southward [was] the uttermost part of the
 south border.
15:2 And their south border was from the shore of the salt-sea,
 from the bay that looketh southward:
15:3 And it went out to the south side to Maaleh-acrabbim, and
 passed along to Zin, and ascended on the south side to
 Kadesh-barnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar,
 and fetched a compass to Karkaa:
15:4 [From thence] it passed towards Azmon, and went out to the
 river of Egypt; and the limits of that border were at the sea:
 this shall be your south limit.
15:5 And the east border [was] the salt-sea, [even] to the end
 of Jordan: and [their] border in the north quarter [was] from
 the bay of the sea, at the uttermost part of Jordan:
15:6 And the border went up to Beth-hogla, and passed along by
 the north of Beth-arabah; and the border went up to the stone
 of Bohan the son of Reuben:
15:7 And the border went up towards Debir from the valley of
 Achor, and so northward looking towards Gilgal, that [is]
 before the going up to Adummim, which [is] on the south side of
 the river: and the border passed towards the waters of
 En-shemesh, and the borders of it were at En-rogel:
15:8 And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom,
 to the south side of the Jebusite; the same [is] Jerusalem: and
 the border went up to the top of the mountain that [lieth]
 before the valley of Hinnom westward, which [is] at the end of
 the valley of the giants northward:
15:9 And the border was drawn from the top of the hill to the
 fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities
 of mount Ephron; and the border was drawn to Baalah, which [is]
15:10 And the border compassed from Baalah westward to mount
 Seir, and passed along to the side of mount Jearim (which [is]
 Chesalon) on the north side, and went down to Beth-shemesh, and
 passed on to Timnah:
15:11 And the border went out to the side of Ekron northward:
 and the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to mount
 Baalah, and went out to Jabneel; and the terminations of the
 border were at the sea.
15:12 And the west border [was] to the great sea, and its coast:
 this [is] the border of the children of Judah round about,
 according to their families.
15:13 And to Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the
 children of Judah, according to the commandment of the LORD to
 Joshua, [even] the city of Arba the father of Anak, which [city
 is] Hebron.
15:14 And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, Sheshai,
 and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.
15:15 And he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir: and the
 name of Debir before [was] Kirjath-sepher.
15:16 And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjath-sepher, and taketh
 it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter for a wife.
15:17 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took
 it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter for a wife.
15:18 And it came to pass, as she came [to him], that she moved
 him to ask of her father a field. And she lighted off [her]
 ass; and Caleb said to her, What wouldst thou?
15:19 Who answered, Give me a blessing; for thou hast given me a
 south land, give me also springs of water. And he gave her the
 upper springs, and the nether springs.
15:20 This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of
 Judah according to their families.

 Judah towards the border of Edom southward were Kabzeel, and
