The Lord Speaks to Joshua

13:1 When Joshua was very old,1 the Lord told him, “You are very old, and a great deal of land remains to be conquered. 13:2 This is the land that remains: all the territory of the Philistines and all the Geshurites, 13:3 from the Shihor River2 east of3 Egypt northward to the territory of Ekron (it is regarded as Canaanite territory),4 including the area belonging to the five Philistine lords who ruled in Gaza, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gath, and Ekron, as well as Avvite land5 13:4 to the south;6 all the Canaanite territory,7 from Arah8 in the region of Sidon9 to Aphek, as far as Amorite territory; 13:5 the territory of Byblos10 and all Lebanon to the east, from Baal Gad below Mount Hermon to Lebo Hamath.11 13:6 I will drive out before the Israelites all who live in the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth Maim,12 all the Sidonians; you be sure to parcel it out to Israel as I instructed you.”13 13:7 Now, divide up this land14 among the nine tribes and the half-tribe of Manasseh.”
