19 The second lot came out for the tribe of Simeon according to its clans. Their inheritance lay within the territory of Judah.2 It included:
Beersheba (or Sheba),[a] Moladah,3 Hazar Shual, Balah, Ezem,4 Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah,5 Ziklag, Beth Markaboth, Hazar Susah,6 Beth Lebaoth and Sharuhen—thirteen towns and their villages;
7 Ain, Rimmon, Ether and Ashan—four towns and their villages—8 and all the villages around these towns as far as Baalath Beer (Ramah in the Negev).
This was the inheritance of the tribe of the Simeonites, according to its clans.9 The inheritance of the Simeonites was taken from the share of Judah, because Judah’s portion was more than they needed. So the Simeonites received their inheritance within the territory of Judah.
Joshua 19:2Or Beersheba, Sheba; 1 Chron. 4:28 does not have Sheba.
