Now these are the areas the Israelites received as an inheritance1 in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar2 the priest, Joshua son of Nun and the heads of the tribal clans of Israel3 allotted4 to them.5
Now the people of Judah approached Joshua at Gilgal,13 and Caleb son of Jephunneh14 the Kenizzite said to him, "You know what the LORD said to Moses the man of God15 at Kadesh Barnea16 about you and me.17
"Now then, just as the LORD promised,25 he has kept me alive for forty-five years since the time he said this to Moses, while Israel moved26 about in the wilderness. So here I am today, eighty-five years old!27
Now give me this hill country that the LORD promised me that day.30 You yourself heard then that the Anakites31 were there and their cities were large and fortified,32 but, the LORD helping me, I will drive them out just as he said."
