Rest of the Land Divided
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░.
