Chapter 19

In the description of the lots of Judah and Benjamin we have an account both of the borders that surrounded them and of the cities contained in them. In that of Ephraim and Manasseh we have the borders, but not the cities; in this chapter Simeon and Dan are described by their cities only, and not their borders, because they lay very much within Judah, especially the former; the rest have both their borders described and their cities names, especially frontiers. Here is, I. The lot of Simeon, Josh. 19:1-9. II. Of Zebulun, Josh. 19:10-16. III. Of Issachar, Josh. 19:17-23. IV. Of Asher, Josh. 19:24-31. V. Of Naphtali, Josh. 19:32-39. VI. Of Dan, Josh. 19:40-48. Lastly, The inheritance assigned to Joshua himself and his own family, Josh. 19:49-51.
