Tabernacle set up
18:1 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel
assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the
congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.
18:2 And there remained among the children of Israel seven
tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance.
18:3 And Yeshua said unto the children of Israel, How long
[are] ya'll slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of
your fathers has given you?
18:4 Give out from among you three men for [each] tribe and
I will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land,
and describe it according to the inheritance of them; and they
shall come [again] to me.
18:5 And they shall divide it into seven parts Judah shall
abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall
abide in their coasts on the north.
18:6 Ya'll shall therefore describe the land [into] seven
parts, and bring [the description] hither to me, that I may cast
lots for you here before the LORD our God.
18:7 But the Levites have no part among you; for the
priesthood of the LORD [is] their inheritance and Gad, and
Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their
inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of
the LORD gave them.
18:8 And the men arose, and went away and Yeshua charged them
that went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the
land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast
lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.
18:9 And the men went and passed through the land, and
described it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came
[again] to Yeshua to the host at Shiloh.
18:10 And Yeshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD
and there Yeshua divided the land unto the children of Israel
according to their divisions.
18:11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin
came up according to their families and the coast of their lot
came forth between the children of Judah and the children of
18:12 And their border on the north side was from Jordan ;
and the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side,
and went up through the mountains westward ; and the goings out
thereof were at the wilderness of Bethaven.
18:13 And the border went over from there toward Luz, to the
side of Luz, which [is] Bethel, southward ; and the border
descended to Atarothadar, near the hill that [lies] on the south
side of the nether Bethhoron.
18:14 And the border was drawn [there], and compassed the
corner of the sea southward, from the hill that [lies] before
Bethhoron southward ; and the goings out thereof were at
Kirjathbaal, which [is] Kirjathjearim, a city of the children of
Judah this [was] the west quarter.
18:15 And the south quarter [was] from the end of
Kirjathjearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out
to the well of waters of Nephtoah
18:16 And the border came down to the end of the mountain
that [lies] before the valley of the son of Hinnom,
[and] which [is] in the valley of the giants on the north, and
descended to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the
south, and descended to Enrogel,
18:17 And was drawn from the north, and went forth to
Enshemesh, and went forth toward Geliloth, which [is] over
against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of
Bohan the son of Reuben,
18:18 And passed along toward the side over against Arabah
northward, and went down unto Arabah
18:19 And the border passed along to the side of Bethhoglah
northward and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay
of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan this [was] the south
18:20 And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This
[was] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts
thereof round about, according to their families.
18:21 Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin
according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the
valley of Keziz,
18:22 And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,
18:23 And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,
18:24 And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba ; twelve
cities with their villages
18:25 Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,
18:26 And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,
18:27 And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,
18:28 And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which [is] Jerusalem,
Gibeath, [and] Kirjath ; fourteen cities with their villages.
