Now 1Joshua was old and advanced in years when the LORDsaid to him, "You are old and advanced in years, and verymuch of the landremains to be possessed.
2"This is the land that remains : all the regions of the Philistines and all those of the 2Geshurites ;
from the Shihorwhich is aeast of Egypt, even as far as the border of Ekron to the north (it is counted as Canaanite ); the 3fivelords of the Philistines : the Gazite, the Ashdodite, the Ashkelonite, the Gittite, the Ekronite ; and the Avvite4bto the south, all the land of the Canaanite, and Mearah that belongs to the Sidonians, as far as 4Aphek, to the border of the 5Amorite ;
and the land of the 6Gebalite, and all of Lebanon, toward the ceast , 7from Baal-gadbelowMountHermon as far as dLebo-hamath.
6"All the inhabitants of the hillcountry from Lebanon as far as 8Misrephoth-maim, all the Sidonians, I will edrive them out from before the sons of Israel ; 9onlyallot it to Israel for an inheritance as I have commanded you.
7"Now therefore, apportionthisland for an inheritance to the ninetribes and the half-tribe of Manasseh."
With fthe other half-tribe, the Reubenites and the Gaditesreceived their inheritancewhichMosesgave them 10beyond the Jordan to the east, just as Moses the servant of the LORDgave to them;
from Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, with the citywhich is in the middle of the valley, and all the plain of Medeba, as far as Dibon ;
and all the cities of Sihonking of the Amorites, whoreigned in Heshbon, as far as the border of the sons of Ammon ;
and 11Gilead, and the gterritory of the Geshurites and Maacathites, and allMountHermon, and allBashan as far as Salecah ;
12all the kingdom of 12Og in Bashan, whoreigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei (he alone was left of the remnant of the Rephaim ); for Moses13struck them and dispossessed them.
But the sons of Israel did not dispossess the Geshurites or the Maacathites ; for Geshur and MaacathliveamongIsraeluntilthisday.
1414Only to the tribe of Levi he did not give an inheritance ; the offerings by fire to the LORD, the God of Israel, are htheir inheritance, as He spoke to him.
So Mosesgave an inheritance to the tribe of the sons of Reuben according to their families.
Their iterritory was 15from Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, with the citywhich is in the middle of the valley and all the plain by Medeba ;
17Heshbon, and all its citieswhich are on the plain : Dibon and Bamoth-baal and Beth-baal-meon,
and 16Jahaz and Kedemoth and Mephaath,
and 17Kiriathaim and Sibmah and Zereth-shahar on the hill of the valley,
and Beth-peor and the slopes of Pisgah and Beth-jeshimoth,
even all the cities of the plain and all the kingdom of Sihonking of the Amoriteswhoreigned in Heshbon, whomMosesstruck with the chiefs of Midian, 18Evi and Rekem and Zur and Hur and Reba, the princes of Sihon, who lived in the land.
The sons of Israel also killed19Balaam the son of Beor, the diviner, with the swordamong the rest of their slain.
The border of the sons of Reuben was the jJordan. This was the inheritance of the sons of Reuben according to their families, the cities and their villages.
24Moses also gave an inheritance to the tribe of Gad, to the sons of Gad, according to their families.
Their territory was 20Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the sons of Ammon, as far as Aroerwhich is beforeRabbah ;
and from Heshbon as far as Ramath-mizpeh and Betonim, and from Mahanaim as far as the border of kDebir ;
and in the valley, Beth-haram and Beth-nimrah and Succoth and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihonking of Heshbon, with the Jordanlas a border, as far as the lower end of the Sea of m21Chinnerethbeyond the Jordan to the east.
28This is the inheritance of the sons of Gad according to their families, the cities and their villages.
29Moses also gave an inheritance to the half-tribe of Manasseh ; and it was for the half-tribe of the sons of Manasseh according to their families.
Their territory was from Mahanaim, allBashan, all the kingdom of Ogking of Bashan, and all22the ntowns of Jair, which are in Bashan, sixtycities ;
also half of Gilead, with 23Ashtaroth and Edrei, the cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were for the sons of Machir the son of Manasseh, for half of the sons of Machir according to their families.
32These are the territories whichMosesapportioned for an inheritance in the plains of Moab, beyond the Jordan at Jericho to the east.
But 24to the tribe of Levi, Moses did not give an inheritance ; the LORD, the God of Israel, is their inheritance, as He had opromised to them.
