(But the Danites had difficulty taking possession of their territory,9 so they went up and attacked Leshem10, took it, put it to the sword and occupied it. They settled in Leshem and named11 it Dan after their forefather.)1248
These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the tribe of Dan,13 clan by clan.
When they had finished dividing the land into its allotted portions, the Israelites gave Joshua son of Nun an inheritance among them,
as the LORD had commanded. They gave him the town he asked for--Timnath Seraha14 in the hill country of Ephraim. And he built up the town and settled there.
These are the territories that Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun and the heads of the tribal clans of Israel assigned by lot at Shiloh in the presence of the LORD at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. And so they finished dividing15 the land.16
