View In My Bible
4 It then passed along to Azmon1 and joined the Wadi of Egypt,2 ending at the sea. This is theira southern boundary. 5 The eastern boundary3 is the Salt Sea4 as far as the mouth of the Jordan. The northern boundary5 started from the bay of the sea at the mouth of the Jordan, 6 went up to Beth Hoglah6 and continued north of Beth Arabah7 to the Stone of Bohan8 son of Reuben. 7 The boundary then went up to Debir9 from the Valley of Achor10 and turned north to Gilgal,11 which faces the Pass of Adummim south of the gorge. It continued along to the waters of En Shemesh12 and came out at En Rogel.13 8 Then it ran up the Valley of Ben Hinnom14 along the southern slope of the Jebusite15 city (that is, Jerusalem16). From there it climbed to the top of the hill west of the Hinnom Valley17 at the northern end of the Valley of Rephaim.18 9 From the hilltop the boundary headed toward the spring of the waters of Nephtoah,19 came out at the towns of Mount Ephron and went down toward Baalah20 (that is, Kiriath Jearim).21 10 Then it curved westward from Baalah22 to Mount Seir,23 ran along the northern slope of Mount Jearim (that is, Kesalon), continued down to Beth Shemesh24 and crossed to Timnah.25 11 It went to the northern slope of Ekron,26 turned toward Shikkeron, passed along to Mount Baalah27 and reached Jabneel.28 The boundary ended at the sea. 12 The western boundary is the coastline of the Great Sea.b29 These are the boundaries around the people of Judah by their clans. 13 In accordance with the LORD's command to him, Joshua gave to Caleb30 son of Jephunneh a portion in Judah--Kiriath Arba31, that is, Hebron.32 (Arba was the forefather of Anak.)33 14 From Hebron Caleb drove out the three Anakites34--Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai35--descendants of Anak.36
