Then the people of Judah came to Joshua at Gilgal. And Caleb the son of Jephunneh the 1Kenizzite said to him, "You know 2what the LORD said to Moses the man of God in Kadesh-barnea concerning you and me.
And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, 7just as he said, these 8forty-five years since the time that the LORD spoke this word to Moses, while Israel walked in the wilderness. And now, behold, I am this day 9eighty-five years old.
So now give me this hill country of which the LORD spoke on that day, for you heard on that day how the 12Anakim were there, with great fortified cities. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall drive them out just as the LORD said."
