and all the villages surrounding these cities as far as Baalath-beer (Ramah of the southa). This was the inheritance of the tribe of Simeon's descendants by their clans.
The inheritance of Simeon's descendants was within the territory of Judah's descendants, because the share for Judah's descendants was too large for them. So Simeon's descendants received an inheritance within Judah's portion.
The third lot came up for Zebulun's descendants by their clans. The territory of their inheritance stretched as far as Sarid;
their border went up westward to Maralah, reached Dabbesheth, and met the brook east of Jokneam.
From Sarid, it turned east toward the sunrise along the border of Chisloth-tabor, went to Daberath, and went up to Japhia.
From there, it went east toward the sunrise to Gath-hepher and to Eth-kazin; it extended to Rimmon, curving around to Neah.
The border then circled around Neah on the north to Hannathon and ended at the valley of Iphtah-el,
along with Kattath, Nahalal, Shimron, Idalah, and Bethlehem-12 cities, with their villages.
This was the inheritance of Zebulun's descendants by their clans, these cities, with their villages.
