Joshua 19:48 Meaning and Commentary

Joshua 19:48

This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of
Dan
Before described by its cities, which were in it. This tribe was bounded by Ephraim on the north, by Judah on the east, by Simeon on the south, and by the Mediterranean sea on the west. Josephus F8 says, the Danites enjoyed the vale which lies to the setting sun, bounded by Azotus and Doris, and all Jamnia and Getta, from Accaron (or Ekron) to the mountain from whence the tribe of Judah begins:

according to their families;
which inheritance was distributed according to the number of their families:

their cities with their villages;
before named.
