Joshua 18:11-28

The Territory of Benjamin

11 Now the lot of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin came up according to their families, and the territory of their lot lay between the sons of Judah and the sons of Joseph.
12 1Their border on the north side was from the Jordan, then the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north, and went up through the hill country westward, and it ended * at the wilderness of Beth-aven.
13 From there the border continued to 2Luz, to the side of Luz (that is, Bethel ) southward; and the border went down to Ataroth-addar, near the hill which lies on the south of 3lower Beth-horon.
14 The border extended from there and turned round on the west side southward, from the hill which lies before * Beth-horon southward; and it ended * at Kiriath-baal (that is, Kiriath-jearim ), a city of the sons of Judah. This was the west side.
15 Then the 4south side was from the edge of Kiriath-jearim, and the border went westward and went to the fountain of the waters of Nephtoah.
16 The border went down to the edge of the hill which is in the 5valley of Ben-hinnom *, which is in the valley of Rephaim northward; and it went down to the valley of Hinnom, to the slope of the Jebusite southward, and went down to En-rogel.
17 It extended northward and went to En-shemesh and went to Geliloth, which is opposite the ascent of Adummim, and it went down to the 6stone of Bohan the son of Reuben.
18 It continued to the side in front of the Arabah northward and went down to the Arabah.
19 The border continued to the side of Beth-hoglah northward; and the border ended * at the north bay of the Salt Sea, at the south end of the Jordan. This was the south border.
20 Moreover, the Jordan was its border on the east side. This was the inheritance of the sons of Benjamin, according to their families and according to its borders all around.
21 Now the cities of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho and Beth-hoglah and Emek-keziz *,
22 and Beth-arabah and Zemaraim and Bethel,
23 and Avvim and Parah and Ophrah,
24 and Chephar-ammoni and Ophni and 7Geba; twelve * cities with their villages.
25 Gibeon and Ramah and Beeroth,
26 and Mizpeh and Chephirah and Mozah,
27 and Rekem and Irpeel and Taralah,
28 and 8Zelah, Haeleph and the Jebusite (that is, Jerusalem ), Gibeah, Kiriath; fourteen * cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the 9sons of Benjamin according to their families.
