half tribe of Manasseh, and which are particularly described,
\\#Jos 12:1-6\\; and then of the kings and the countries on this side
Jordan whom Joshua conquered, \\#Jos 12:7,8\\; and the names of the
thirty one kingdoms are recited, that so it might be exactly known and
observed what were afterwards divided among the tribes and possessed by
them, \\#Jos 12:9-24\\.
