This was the inheritance of the tribe of Simeon according to its families. 8 and all the villages around these towns as far as Baalath Beer (Ramah in the Negev). This was the inheritance of the tribe of the Simeonites, clan by clan.
9 The inheritance of the tribe of Simeon formed part of the territory of Judah; because the portion of the tribe of Judah was too large for them, the tribe of Simeon obtained an inheritance in the midst of their inheritance. 9 The inheritance of the Simeonites was taken from the share of Judah, because Judah's portion was more than they needed.
