And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah
Here follows a particular account of the several cities which were given out of each tribe, and first out of this:
and out of the tribe of the children of Simeon;
which is joined with that of Judah, because the cities of it lay within it, ( Joshua 19:1 ) ;
these cities which are [here] mentioned by name;
( Joshua 21:13-16 ) .
