15 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families; aeven to the border of Edom the bwilderness of Zin southward was the uttermost part of cthe south coast. 2 And their south border was afrom the shore of the salt sea, from the †bay that looketh southward: 3 And it went out to the south side to ||Maaleh-acrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and ascended up on the south side unto Kadesh-barnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and fetched a compass to Karkaa: 4 From thence it passed dtoward Azmon, and went out dunto the river of Egypt; and the goings out of that coast were at the sea: this shall be your south coast. 5 And the east border was the salt sea, even unto the end of Jordan. And their border in the north quarter was from the bay of the sea at the uttermost part of Jordan: 6 And the border went up to eBeth-hogla, and passed along by the north of fBeth-arabah; and the border went up gto the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben: 7 And the border went up toward hDebir from ithe valley of Achor, and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that is gbefore the going up to Adummim, which is on the south side of the river: and the border passed toward the waters of gEn-shemesh, and the goings out thereof were at jEn-rogel: 8 And the border went up kby the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the lJebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before mthe valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of mthe valley of the giants northward: 9 And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto nthe fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of mount Ephron; and the border was drawn to oBaalah, which is pKirjath-jearim: 10 And the border compassed from Baalah westward unto mount Seir, and passed along unto the side of mount Jearim, which is Chesalon, on the north side, and went down to qBethshemesh, and passed on to rTimnah: 11 And the border went out unto the side of sEkron northward: and the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to mount tBaalah, and went out unto Jabneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea. 12 And the west border was uto the great sea, and the coast thereof. This is the coast of the children of Judah round about according to their families.
13 wAnd unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of the Lord to Joshua, even ||the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron. 14 And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, xSheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak. 15 And he went up thence to the inhabitants of yDebir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjath-sepher. 16 zAnd Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjath-sepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife. 17 And Othniel the ason of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife. 18 And it came to pass, as she came unto him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and bshe lighted off her ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wouldest thou? 19 Who answered, Give me a cblessing; for thou hast given me a south land; dgive me also springs of water. And he gave her the upper springs, and the nether springs.
