This is the possession that the sons of Israel wielded in the land of Canaan, which land(s) Eleazar the priest, and Joshua, the son of Nun, and the princes of the families of the lineages of Israel gave to them, (These be the possessions which the Israelites took in the land of Canaan, which lands Eleazar the priest, and Joshua, the son of Nun, and the leaders of the families of the tribes of Israel gave to them,)
and these (men) parted all things by lot, as the Lord commanded in the hand of Moses (as the Lord commanded by Moses), to the nine lineages, and to the half lineage.
For Moses had given to the two lineages and to the half lineage (their) possession(s) over (the) Jordan; without the Levites, that took nothing of the land among their brethren; (For Moses had already given the two tribes and the half tribe on the eastern side of the Jordan River their possessions; and without the Levites, who took nothing of the land among their kinsmen;)
but the sons of Joseph were parted into two lineages, (that) of Manasseh, and (that) of Ephraim, and were heirs into the place of them. And the Levites took none other part in the land, no but cities to dwell in, and the suburbs of those to their work beasts and their sheep to be fed in. (for Joseph's sons were divided into two tribes, that of Manasseh, which itself was divided into two parts, and that of Ephraim, and they were heirs in their places. And the Levites took no portion of the land, but only some cities to live in, and their suburbs for their work beasts and their sheep to be fed in.)
As the Lord commanded to Moses, so the sons of Israel did, and they parted the land. (As the Lord commanded to Moses, so the Israelites did, and they divided up the land.)
And so the sons of Judah went to Joshua in Gilgal; and Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, of Kenaz, spake to him, (and said,) Thou knowest, what the Lord spake to Moses, the man of God, of me and of thee in Kadeshbarnea (Thou knowest, what the Lord said to Moses, the man of God, about you and me at Kadeshbarnea).
I was of forty years (I was forty years old), when Moses, the servant of the Lord, sent me from Kadeshbarnea, that I should behold the land, and I told to him that, that seemed sooth to me.
And my brethren, that went up with me, discomforted the heart(s) of the people, and nevertheless I followed my Lord God. (And my kinsmen, who went up with me, discomforted the hearts of the people, but nevertheless, I followed the Lord my God.)
And Moses swore in that day, and said, The land, that thy foot hath trodden, shall be thy possession, and (that) of thy sons (into) without end; for thou followedest thy Lord God.
Soothly the Lord granted life to me, as he promised, till into present day. Forty years and five be, since the Lord spake this word to Moses, when Israel went through wilderness. Today I am of fourscore years and five, (And the Lord granted life to me, as he promised, unto this present day. Forty-five years be, since the Lord said this word to Moses, when Israel went through the wilderness. And today I am eighty five years old,)
and I am as mighty (now), as I was mighty in that time, when I was sent (out) to espy; the strength of that time dwelleth stably in me till to this day, as well to fight, as to go (yea, the strength of that time remaineth in me unto this day, to fight, as well as to go about my daily life).
Therefore give thou to me this hill, which the Lord promised to me, while also thou heardest, in which hill be Anakim, and great cities, and strengthened; if in hap the Lord is with me, and I may do them away, as he promised to me. (And so give thou to me this hill, which the Lord promised me, while also thou heardest it, on which hill be the Anakim, that is, the giants, and great and strengthened cities; and if the Lord be with me, then I shall be able to do them away, as he promised me.)
And Joshua blessed Caleb, and he gave to him Hebron into (a) possession. (And Joshua blessed Caleb, and he gave Hebron to him for a possession.)
And from that time Hebron was of Caleb (And from that time Hebron belonged to Caleb), the son of Jephunneh, of Kenaz, unto this present day; for he followed the Lord God of Israel.
The name of Hebron was called before Kiriatharba. Arba, the greatest (man), was set there in the land of Anakim; and the land ceased from battles. (Hebron was called Kiriatharba before. And Arba had been the greatest man there in the land of the Anakim, or of the giants. And so the land ceased from battles.)
