Joshua 131And Joshua was old and very advanced in years; and the Lord said to Joshua, You are advanced in years, and there is much land left to inherit. 2And this is the land that is left: the borders of the Philistines, the Geshurites, and the Canaanites, 3from the wilderness before Egypt, as far as the borders of Ekron on the left of the Canaanites; the land is reckoned to the five principalities of the Philistines, to the inhabitants of Gaza, and of Azotus, and of Ashkelon, and of Gath, and of Ekron, and to the Hivite; 4from Taman even to all the land of Canaan before Gaza, and the Sidonians as far as Aphek, as far as the borders of the Amorites. 5And all the land of Gebalites of the Philistines, and all Lebanon eastward from Gilgal, under Mount Hermon as far as the entering in of Hamath; 6everyone that inhabits the hill country from Lebanon as far as the Brook Misrephoth. All the Sidonians, I will destroy them from before Israel; but give them by inheritance to Israel, as I commanded you. 7And now divide this land by lot to the nine tribes, and to the half-tribe of Manasseh. 8From the Jordan to the Great Sea westward you shall give it them. The Great Sea shall be the boundary. But to the two tribes and to the half-tribe of Manasseh, to Reuben and to Gad, Moses gave an inheritance beyond the Jordan: Moses the servant of the Lord gave it to them eastward, 9from Aroer, which is on the bank of the Brook of Arnon, and the city in the midst of the valley, and all the plain of Medeba as far as Dibon. 10All the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned from Heshbon to the coasts of the children of Ammon; 11and the region of Gilead, and the borders of the Geshirites and the Maachathites, and all Mount Hermon, and all the land of Bashan to Salcah. 12All the kingdom of Og in the region of Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei-he was left of the giants; and Moses struck him, and destroyed him. 13But the children of Israel destroyed not the Geshurite and the Maachathite and the Canaanite; and the king of the Geshurite and the Maachathite dwelt among the children of Israel to this day. 14Only no inheritance was given to the tribe of Levi: the Lord God of Israel, He is their inheritance, as the Lord said to them; and this is the division which Moses made to the children of Israel in Araboth Moab, on the other side of the Jordan, by Jericho. 15And Moses gave the land to the tribe of Reuben according to their families. 16And their borders were from Aroer, which is opposite the Brook of Arnon, and theirs is the city that is in the valley of Arnon; and all Misor, 17to Heshbon, and all the cities in Misor, Dibon, Bamoth Baal, Beth Baal Meon, 18Bashan, Kedamoth, Mephaath, 19Kirjathaim, Sibmah, Zereth, Shahar in Mount Enab, 20Beth Peor, the slopes of Pisgah, Beth Jeshimoth- 21and all the cities of Misor, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, whom Moses struck, even him and the princes of Midian: Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba, prince of the spoils of Sihon, dwelling in the country. 22And Balaam the son of Beor the prophet they killed in the battle. 23And the borders of Reuben were the banks of the Jordan. This is the inheritance of the children of Reuben according to their families, the cities and their villages. 24And Moses gave inheritance to the sons of Gad according to their families. 25And their borders were Jazer, all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the children of Ammon to the Arabah, which is before Arad. 26And from Heshbon to Ramath by Mizpah, and Betonim, and from Mahanaim to the borders of Debir, 27and in the valley of Beth Haram, Beth Nimrah, Succoth, and Zaphon, and the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon; and the Jordan shall be the boundary as far as part of the Sea of Chinnereth beyond the Jordan eastward. 28This is the inheritance of the children of Gad according to their families and according to their cities; according to their families they will turn their backs before their enemies, because their cities and their villages were according to their families. 29And Moses gave to half the tribe of Manasseh according to their families. 30And their borders were from Mahanaim, and all the kingdom of Bashan, and all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the villages of Jair, which are in the region of Bashan, sixty cities; 31half of Gilead, and in Ashtaroth, and in Edrei, royal cities of Og in the land of Bashan, Moses gave to the sons of Machir the sons of Manasseh, even to the half-tribe sons of Machir the sons of Manasseh, according to their families. 32These are they whom Moses caused to inherit beyond the Jordan in Araboth Moab, beyond the Jordan by Jericho, eastward.
