View In My Bible
9 From the hilltop the boundary headed toward the spring of the waters of Nephtoah,1 came out at the towns of Mount Ephron and went down toward Baalah2 (that is, Kiriath Jearim).3 10 Then it curved westward from Baalah4 to Mount Seir,5 ran along the northern slope of Mount Jearim (that is, Kesalon), continued down to Beth Shemesh6 and crossed to Timnah.7 11 It went to the northern slope of Ekron,8 turned toward Shikkeron, passed along to Mount Baalah9 and reached Jabneel.10 The boundary ended at the sea. 12 The western boundary is the coastline of the Great Sea.a11 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 Caleb12 son of Jephunneh a portion in Judah--Kiriath Arba13, that is, Hebron.14 (Arba was the forefather of Anak.)15 14 From Hebron Caleb drove out the three Anakites16--Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai17--descendants of Anak.18 15 From there he marched against the people living in Debir (formerly called Kiriath Sepher). 16 And Caleb said, "I will give my daughter Acsah19 in marriage to the man who attacks and captures Kiriath Sepher." 17 Othniel20 son of Kenaz, Caleb's brother, took it; so Caleb gave his daughter Acsah to him in marriage. 18 One day when she came to Othniel, she urged himb to ask her father for a field. When she got off her donkey, Caleb asked her, "What can I do for you?" 19 She replied, "Do me a special favor. Since you have given me land in the Negev,21 give me also springs of water." So Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.22
