And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and calledLeshem,Dan, after the name of Dan their father.48
This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages.49
When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israelgave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nunamong them:
According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked , even Timnathserah in mountEphraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.
These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shilohbefore the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.
