Joshua 13

CHAPTER 13

Land Left for Inheritance

1And Joshua was older being advanced of days; and the  lord said to Joshua, You are grown old, advanced of days, and [2land 3is left 1much] exceedingly for inheritance. 2And this is the land being left; all the borders of the Philistines, and all the Geshurite and the Canaanite, 3from the uninhabited part by the face of Egypt, unto the borders of Ekron, from the left of the Canaanites -- which is counted in addition to; the five satrapies of the Philistines, to the Gazite, and to the Ashdodite and to the Ashkelonite, and to the Gittite, and to the Ekronite, and to the Hivite; 4from Teman, and all the land of Canaan from Gaza, and the Sidonians unto Aphek, unto the borders of the Amorites. 5And all the land of Gabli of the Philistines, and all Lebanon from the east sun from Baal-gad under mount Hermon, unto the entrance of Hamath; 6every one dwelling the mountainous area from Lebanon unto Misrephoth-maim, and all the ones of Sidon -- I will utterly destroy them from the face of the sons of Israel; but distribute it to Israel by lot! in which manner I charged you.

The Other Side of the Jordan

7And now portion this land by lot of inheritance to the nine tribes, and to the half tribe of Manasseh! 8To the ones with him, to Reuben and to Gad, they received their inheritance which [2gave 3to them 1Moses] on the other side of the Jordan; according to the rising of the sun [5granted 6to them 1Moses 2the 3servant 4of the  lord], 9from Aroer, which is upon the edge of the stream Arnon, and the city in the midst of the ravine, and all Misor from Medeba unto Dibon; 10and all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, unto the borders of the sons of Ammon; 11and Gilead, and the borders of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, all mount Hermon, and all Bashan unto Salcah; 12all the kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei -- this one was left from the remnant of giants; for [2struck 3him 1Moses] and utterly destroyed him. 13But [4did not 5utterly destroy 1the 2sons 3of Israel] the Geshurite, and the Maachathite. And [6dwelt 1the king 2of the Geshurites 3and 4the 5Maachathites] among the sons of Israel until this day. 14Except to the tribe of Levi there was not given an inheritance; the  lord God of Israel, this is their inheritance, as [2said 3to them 1the  lord]. 15And Moses gave to the tribe of the sons of Reuben according to their peoples. 16And became theirs the boundaries from Aroer, which is by the face of the ravine Arnon, and the city, the one in the ravine of Arnon, and all Misor and Medeba unto Heshbon, 17and all their cities being in Misor, and Dibon, and Bamoth-baal, and the house of Baal-meon, 18and Jahaza, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath, 19and Kirjathaim, and Sibmah, and Zerath, and Sharah in mount Emak; 20and Beth-peor, and Ashdoth Pisgah, and Beth-jeshimoth, 21and all the cities of Misor, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses struck he and the leaders of Midian even Evi and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, rulers of Sihon, the ones dwelling in the land. 22And Balaam son Beor the clairvoyant [4killed 1the 2sons 3of Israel] by the broadsword in the routing of the enemy. 23And became the borders of the sons of Reuben the Jordan boundary. This is the inheritance of the sons of Reuben according to their peoples, the cities, and their properties. 24[3gave 1And 2Moses] to the sons of Gad according to their peoples. 25And [3were 1their 2borders] Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half of the land of the sons of Ammon, unto Aroer which is against the face of Rabbah. 26And from Heshbon unto Ramath by Mizpha, Betonim, and Mahanaim unto the borders of Debir; 27and Enemek, Beth-aram, and Beth-nimrah, and Succoth, and Zaphon, and the remaining kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon. The Jordan shall define the bounds, unto part of the sea of Chinnereth, on the other side of the Jordan from the east. 28This is the inheritance of the sons of Gad according to their peoples, and according to their cities, and their properties. 29And Moses gave to the half tribe of Manasseh, and it became to the halves of the tribe of the sons of Manasseh according to their peoples. 30And [2were 1their borders] from Mahanaim, and all the kingdom of Bashan, and all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Jair, which are in the land of Bashan, sixty cities; 31even half of Gilead, and in Ashtaroth, and in Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan -- these were to the sons of Machir the son of Manasseh, and to the half of the sons of Machir the son of Manasseh according to their peoples. 32These are which Moses gave to inherit in the wilderness of Moab on the other side of the Jordan by Jericho from the east. 33And to the tribe of Levi [2did not give 1Moses] an inheritance. The  lord God of Israel, he is their inheritance in which manner he said to them.
