The west of Jordan inheritance to be by lot
14:1 And these [are the countries] which the children of
Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest,
and Yeshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the
tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for inheritance to
14:2 By lot [was] their inheritance, as the LORD commanded
by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and [for] the half
14:3 For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and
an half tribe on the other side Jordan but to the Levites he
gave none inheritance among them.
14:4 For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh
and Ephraim therefore they gave no part to the Levites in the
land, save cities to stay [in], with their suburbs for their
cattle and for their substance.
14:5 As the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel
did, and they divided the land.
Caleb is given Hebron
14:6 Then the children of Judah came to Yeshua in Gilgal
and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said to him, You
know the thing that the LORD said to Moses the man of God
concerning me and ya'll in Kadeshbarnea.
14:7 Forty years old [was] I when Moses the servant of the
LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to check out the land ; and I
brought him word again as [it was] in mine heart.
14:8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the
heart of the people melt but I wholly followed the LORD my God.
14:9 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land
whereon your feet have trodden shall be your inheritance, and your
children's for ever, because you have wholly followed the LORD
14:10 And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as he
said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this
word to Moses, while [the children of] Israel wandered in the
wilderness and now, lo, I [am] this day fourscore and five years
14:11 As yet I [am as] strong this day as [I was] in the day
that Moses sent me as my strength [was] then, even so [is] my
strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.
14:12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD
spake in that day ; for you heardest in that day how the Anakims
[were] there, and [that] the cities [were] great [and] fenced if
so be the LORD [will be] with me, then I shall be able to drive
them out, as the LORD said.
14:13 And Yeshua blessed him, and gave to Caleb the son of
Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.
14:14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the
son of Jephunneh the Kenezite to this day, because that he
wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.
14:15 And the name of Hebron before [was] Kirjatharba ;
[which Arba was] a great man among the Anakims. And the land had
rest from war.
