He cast out the Heathen also before them
The seven nations, the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, ( Deuteronomy 7:1 )
and divided them an inheritance by line:
the land of Canaan was divided among the nine tribes and a half by Joshua, the other two and a half having had their portion assigned them on the other side; this distribution was made very exactly by lot, by line, and measure, so that every tribe had their proper portion and inheritance; see ( Joshua 13:6-8 Joshua 13:32 ) ( 14:1-5 ) ,
and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents;
in the cities, towns, villages, and houses of the Heathen cast out before them.
