Joshua 21

CHAPTER 21

Levi's Lot

And came forward the chief patriarchs of the sons of Levi to Eleazar the priest, and to Joshua the son of Nun, and to the tribal chiefs of the families of the tribes of the sons of Israel. And they spoke to them in Shiloh, in the land of Canaan, saying, The  lord gave charge by the hand of Moses to give to us cities to dwell in, and their outskirts for our cattle. And [4gave 1the 2sons 3of Israel] to the Levites in their inheriting by the order of the  lord these cities and their outskirts. And [3came forth 1the 2lot] to the people of Kohath, and it was to the sons of Aaron, the priests, to the Levites from the tribe of Judah, and from the tribe of Simeon, and from the tribe of Benjamin -- [3by casting lots 2cities 1thirteen]. And to the sons of Kohath, to the ones being left from out of the kin, of the tribe of Ephraim, and from the tribe of Dan, and from the half tribe of Manasseh -- [3by casting lots 2cities 1ten]. And to the sons of Gershon, from the kin of the tribe of Issachar, and from the tribe of Asher, and from the tribe of Naphtali, and from the half tribe of Manasseh in Bashan -- [3by casting lots 2cities 1thirteen]. And to the sons of Merari, according to their peoples, from the tribe of Reuben, and from the tribe of Gad, and from the tribe of Zebulun -- [3by casting lots 2cities 1twelve]. And [4gave 1the 2sons 3of Israel] to the Levites these cities and their outskirts, in which manner the  lord gave charge to Moses by casting lots. And he gave the tribe of the sons of Judah, and the tribe of Simeon these cities. And they were called by name. 10 And they became to the sons of Aaron, of the people of Kohath, of the sons of Levi; for [4to these 3came 1the 2lot] first. 11 And they gave to them Kirjath-arba, mother-city of the Anak (this is Hebron) in the mountain of Judah, and the outskirts of it round about it. 12 But the fields of the city, and her towns Joshua gave to Caleb son of Jephunneh for his possession. 13 And to the sons of Aaron the priest he gave the city, the place of refuge for the one manslaying -- Hebron and the parts being separated with it, and Libnah and the parts being separated with it, 14 and Jattir and the parts being separated with it, and Eshtemoa and the parts being separated with it, 15 and Holon and the parts being separated with it, and Debir and the parts being separated with it, 16 and Ain and the parts being separated with it, and Juttah and the parts being separated with it, and Beth-shemesh and the parts being separated with it; [2cities 1nine] from [2two 3tribes 1these]. 17 And from the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon and the parts being separated with it, and Geba and the parts being separated with it 18 and Anathoth and the parts being separated with it, and Almon and the parts being separated with it; [2cities 1four]. 19 All the cities of the sons of Aaron of the priests -- [2cities 1thirteen] and their outskirts. 20 And to the peoples of the sons of Kohath, to the Levites being left behind from the sons of Kohath.

Round about these cities city by city and the their outskirts round about the cities. Thus to all these cities. 43 And the  lord gave to Israel all the land which he swore by an oath to give to their fathers; and they inherited it, and dwelt in it. 44 And [2rested 3them 1the  lord] round about in so far as he swore by an oath to their fathers. Not [2rose up 1one] before them of all their enemies; [3all 4their enemies 2delivered up 1the  lord] into their hands. 45 Not [2failed 1a word] from all of the [2words 1good] which the  lord spoke to the sons of Israel; all came to pass.
