Canaan Divided among the Tribes
1 Now aJoshua was old and advanced in years when the Lord said to him, “You are old and advanced in years, and very much of the land remains to be possessed.
2 “This is the land that remains: all the regions of the Philistines and all those of the aGeshurites;
3 from the Shihor which is 1east of Egypt, even as far as the border of Ekron to the north (it is counted as Canaanite); the afive lords of the Philistines: the Gazite, the Ashdodite, the Ashkelonite, the Gittite, the Ekronite; and the Avvite
4 1to the south, all the land of the Canaanite, and Mearah that belongs to the Sidonians, as far as aAphek, to the border of the bAmorite;
5 and the land of the aGebalite, and all of Lebanon, toward the 1east, bfrom Baal-gad below Mount Hermon as far as 2Lebo-hamath.
6 “All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon as far as aMisrephoth-maim, all the Sidonians, I will 1drive them out from before the sons of Israel; bonly allot it to Israel for an inheritance as I have commanded you.
7 “Now therefore, apportion this land for an inheritance to the nine tribes and the half-tribe of Manasseh.”
8 With 1the other half-tribe, the Reubenites and the Gadites received their inheritance which Moses gave them abeyond the Jordan to the east, just as Moses the servant of the Lord gave to them;
9 from Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, with the city which is in the middle of the valley, and all the plain of Medeba, as far as Dibon;
10 and all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, as far as the border of the sons of Ammon;
11 and aGilead, and the 1territory of the Geshurites and Maacathites, and all Mount Hermon, and all Bashan as far as Salecah;
12 all the kingdom of aOg in Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei (he alone was left of the remnant of the Rephaim); for Moses bstruck them and dispossessed them.
13 But the sons of Israel did not dispossess the Geshurites or the Maacathites; for Geshur and Maacath live among Israel until this day.
14 aOnly to the tribe of Levi he did not give an inheritance; the offerings by fire to the Lord, the God of Israel, are 1their inheritance, as He spoke to him.
15 So Moses gave an inheritance to the tribe of the sons of Reuben according to their families.
16 Their 1territory was afrom Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, with the city which is in the middle of the valley and all the plain by Medeba;
17 Heshbon, and all its cities which are on the plain: Dibon and Bamoth-baal and Beth-baal-meon,
18 and aJahaz and Kedemoth and Mephaath,
19 and aKiriathaim and Sibmah and Zereth-shahar on the hill of the valley,
20 and Beth-peor and the slopes of Pisgah and Beth-jeshimoth,
21 even all the cities of the plain and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites who reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses struck with the chiefs of Midian, aEvi and Rekem and Zur and Hur and Reba, the princes of Sihon, who lived in the land.
22 The sons of Israel also killed aBalaam the son of Beor, the diviner, with the sword among the rest of their slain.
23 The border of the sons of Reuben was the 1Jordan. This was the inheritance of the sons of Reuben according to their families, the cities and their villages.
24 Moses also gave an inheritance to the tribe of Gad, to the sons of Gad, according to their families.
25 Their territory was aJazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the sons of Ammon, as far as Aroer which is before Rabbah;
26 and from Heshbon as far as Ramath-mizpeh and Betonim, and from Mahanaim as far as the border of 1Debir;
27 and in the valley, Beth-haram and Beth-nimrah and Succoth and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, with the Jordan 1as a border, as far as the lower end of the Sea of 2aChinnereth beyond the Jordan to the east.
28 This is the inheritance of the sons of Gad according to their families, the cities and their villages.
29 Moses also gave an inheritance to the half-tribe of Manasseh; and it was for the half-tribe of the sons of Manasseh according to their families.
30 Their territory was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all athe 1towns of Jair, which are in Bashan, sixty cities;
31 also half of Gilead, with aAshtaroth and Edrei, the cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were for the sons of Machir the son of Manasseh, for half of the sons of Machir according to their families.
32 These are the territories which Moses apportioned for an inheritance in the plains of Moab, beyond the Jordan at Jericho to the east.
33 But ato the tribe of Levi, Moses did not give an inheritance; the Lord, the God of Israel, is their inheritance, as He had 1promised to them.
