This is the land that yet remaineth : all the borders of the Philistines, and all Geshuri,3
From Sihor, which is beforeEgypt, even unto the borders of Ekronnorthward, which is counted to the Canaanite:fivelords of the Philistines; the Gazathites, and the Ashdothites, the Eshkalonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the Avites:4
From the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearaha that is beside the Sidonians, unto Aphek, to the borders of the Amorites:5
And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising , from Baalgad under mountHermon unto the entering into Hamath.6
All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon unto Misrephothmaim, and all the Sidonians, them will I drive out from before the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot unto the Israelites for an inheritance, as I have commanded thee.
Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance unto the ninetribes, and the halftribe of Manasseh,
