13 Now Joshua awas old, advanced in years. And the Lord said to him: “You are old, advanced in years, and there remains very much land yet to be possessed. 2 bThis is the land that yet remains: call the territory of the Philistines and all dthat of the Geshurites, 3 efrom Sihor, which is east of Egypt, as far as the border of Ekron northward (which is counted as Canaanite); the ffive lords of the Philistines—the Gazites, the Ashdodites, the Ashkelonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also gthe Avites; 4 from the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah that belongs to the Sidonians has far as Aphek, to the border of ithe Amorites; 5 the land of jthe 1Gebalites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrise, kfrom Baal Gad below Mount Hermon as far as the entrance to Hamath; 6 all the inhabitants of the mountains from Lebanon as far as lthe 2Brook Misrephoth, and all the Sidonians—them mI will drive out from before the children of Israel; only ndivide 3it by lot to Israel as an inheritance, as I have commanded you. 7 Now therefore, divide this land as an inheritance to the nine tribes and half the tribe of Manasseh.”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
