NASB — Joshua 18 — KJV

Rest of the Land Divided

1 Then the whole congregation of the sons of Israel assembled themselves at aShiloh, and set up the tent of meeting there; and the land was subdued before them.

[1] aJg 21:19; Jr 7:12; 26:6, 9

2 ¶ There remained among the sons of Israel seven tribes who had not divided their inheritance. 3 So Joshua said to the sons of Israel, “aHow long will you put off entering to take possession of the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, has given you? 4 Provide for yourselves three men from Ieach tribe that I may send them, and that they may arise and walk through the land and write a description of it according to their inheritance; then they shall IIreturn to me. 5 They shall divide it into seven portions; aJudah shall stay in its territory on the south, and the house of Joseph shall stay in their territory on the north. 6 You shall describe the land in seven divisions, and bring [the description] here to me. aI will cast lots for you here before the LORD our God. 7 For athe Levites have no portion among you, because the priesthood of the LORD is Itheir inheritance. Gad and Reuben and the half-tribe of Manasseh also have received their inheritance eastward beyond the Jordan, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.”

8 ¶ Then the men arose and went, and Joshua commanded those who went to describe the land, saying, “Go and walk through the land and describe it, and return to me; then I will cast lots for you here before the LORD in aShiloh.” 9 So the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities in seven divisions in a book; and they came to Joshua to the camp at Shiloh. 10 And aJoshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD, and there Joshua divided the land to the sons of Israel according to their divisions.

The Territory of Benjamin

11 ¶ Now the lot of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin came up according to their families, and the territory of their lot Ilay between the sons of Judah and the sons of Joseph. 12 aTheir border on the north side was from the Jordan, then the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north, and went up through the hill country westward, and Iit ended at the wilderness of Beth-aven. 13 From there the border continued to aLuz, to the side of Luz (that is, Bethel) southward; and the border went down to Ataroth-addar, near the hill which [lies] on the south of blower Beth-horon. 14 The border extended [from there] and turned round on the west side southward, from the hill which [lies] before Beth-horon southward; and Iit ended at Kiriath-baal (that is, Kiriath-jearim), a city of the sons of Judah. This [was] the west side. 15 Then the asouth side [was] from the edge of Kiriath-jearim, and the border went westward and went to the fountain of the waters of Nephtoah. 16 The border went down to the edge of the hill which is in the avalley of Ben-hinnom, which is in the valley of Rephaim northward; and it went down to the valley of Hinnom, to the slope of the Jebusite southward, and went down to En-rogel. 17 It extended northward and went to En-shemesh and went to Geliloth, which is opposite the ascent of Adummim, and it went down to the astone of Bohan the son of Reuben. 18 It continued to the side in front of the Arabah northward and went down to the Arabah. 19 The border continued to the side of Beth-hoglah northward; and the Iborder ended at the north bay of the Salt Sea, at the south end of the Jordan. This [was] the south border. 20 Moreover, the Jordan was its border on the east side. This [was] the inheritance of the sons of Benjamin, according to their families [and] according to its borders all around.

The Tabernacle is set up at Shiloh.

1 ¶ And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together¬ at Shiloh, and set up¬ the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued¬ before them.

[1] Jsh 19:51; 21:2; 22:9; Jg 18:31; 21:19; 1S 1:3, 24; 4:3; 1K 2:27; 14:2, 4; Ps 78:66; Jr 7:12; 26:6.

The remainder of the land is described, and divided into seven parts.

2 And there remained¬ among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received¬ their inheritance. 3 And Joshua said¬ unto 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? 4 Give out¬ 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. 5 And they shall divide¬ it into seven parts: Judah shall abide¬ in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide¬ in their coasts on the north. 6 Ye shall therefore describe¬ the land [into] seven parts, and bring¬ [the description] hither to me, that I may cast¬ lots for you here before the LORD our God. 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.

The lot of the border of Benjamin.

11 ¶ And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up¬ according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth¬ between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph. 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 goings out thereof were at the wilderness of Bethaven. 13 And the border went over¬ from thence toward Luz, to the side of Luz, which [is] Bethel, southward; and the border descended¬ to Atarothadar, near the hill that [lieth] on the south side of the nether Bethhoron. 14 And the border was drawn¬ [thence], and compassed¬ the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that [lieth] before Bethhoron southward; and the goings out thereof were at Kirjathbaal, which [is] Kirjathjearim, a city of the children of Judah: this [was] the west quarter. 15 And the south quarter [was] from the end of Kirjathjearim, and the border went out¬ on the west, and went out¬ to the well of waters of Nephtoah: 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 Enrogel, 17 And was drawn¬ from the north, and went forth¬ to Enshemesh, and went forth¬ toward Geliloth, which [is] over against the going up of Adummim, and descended¬ to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben, 18 And passed along¬ toward the side over against Arabah northward, and went down¬ unto Arabah: 19 And the border passed along¬ to the side of Bethhoglah northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this [was] the south coast. 20 And Jordan was the border¬ of it on the east side. This [was] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round about, according to their families.
