Joshua 19 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
19 1 The portion of Simeon, 10 Of Zebulun, 17 Of Issachar, 24 Of Asher, 32 Of Naphtali, 40 Of Dan. 49 The possession of Joshua.
1 And the second lot came out to Simeon, even for the tribe of the children of Simeon, according to their families: and their inheritance was in the [a]midst of the inheritance of the children of Judah.
2 Now they had in their inheritance Beersheba, and Sheba, and Moladah,
3 And Hazar Shual, and Balah, and Ezem,
4 And Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah,
5 And Ziklag, and Beth Marcaboth, and Hazar Susah,
6 And Beth Lebaoth, and Sharuhen: thirteen cities with their villages.
7 Ain, Rimmon, and Ether, and Ashan: four cities with their villages.
8 And all the villages that were round about these cities, unto Baalath Beer, and [b]Ramah, Southward: this is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Simeon, according to their families.
9 Out of the portion of the children of Judah came the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too [c]much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within their inheritance.
10 ¶ Also the third lot arose for the children of Zebulun, according to their families: and the coasts of their inheritance came to Sarid,
11 And their border goeth up [d]Westward, even to Maralah, and reacheth to Dabbasheth, and meeteth with the river that lieth before Jokneam,
12 And turneth from Sarid Eastward toward the Sun rising unto the border of Chisloth Tabor, and goeth out to Daberath, and ascendeth to Japhia,
13 And from thence goeth along Eastward toward the Sun rising to Gath Hepher, to Eth Kazin, and goeth forth to Rimmon, and turneth to Neah.
14 And this border compasseth it on the North side to Hannathon, and the ends thereof are in the valley of Jiphthah El,
15 And Kattath, and Nahallal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and [e]Bethlehem: twelve cities with their villages.
16 This is the inheritance of the children of Zebulun, according to their families, that is, these cities and their villages.
17 ¶ The fourth lot came out to Issachar, even for the children of Issachar, according to their families.
18 And their coast was Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and Shunem,
19 And Haphraim, and Shion, and Anaharath,
20 And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,
21 And Remeth, and [f]En Gannim, and En Haddah, and Beth Pazzez.
22 And this coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and Beth Shemesh, and the ends of their coast reach to Jordan: sixteen cities with their villages.
23 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Issachar according to their families: that is, the cities and their villages.
24 ¶ Also the fifth lot came out for the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families.
25 And their coast was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and Achshaph,
26 And Alammelech, and Amad, and Mishal, and came to Carmel Westward, and to Shihor Libnath,
27 And turneth toward the Sun rising to Beth Dagon, and cometh to [g]Zebulun, and to the valley of Jiphthah El, toward the North side of Beth Emek, and Neiel, and goeth out on the left side of Cabul,
28 And to Ebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, unto great Sidon.
29 Then the coast turneth to Ramah and to the strong city of [h]Zor, and this border turneth to Hosah, and the ends thereof are at the Sea from Hebel to Achzib,
30 Ummah also and Aphek, and Rehob: two and twenty cities with their villages.
31 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Asher, according to their families: that is, these cities and their villages.
32 ¶ The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, even to the children of Naphtali according to their families.
33 And their coast was from [i]Heleph, and from Allon in Zaanannim, and Adami Nekeb, and Jabneel, even to Lakkum, and the ends thereof are at Jordan.
34 So this coast turneth Westward to Aznoth Tabor, and goeth out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the South side, and goeth to Asher on the West side, and to Judah [j]by Jordan toward the sun rising.
35 And the strong cities are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath, and [k]Chinnereth,
36 And Adamah, and Ramah, and Hazor,
37 And Kedesh, and Edrei, and En Hazor,
38 And Iron, and Migdal El, Horem, and Beth Anath, and Beth Shemesh: nineteen cities with their villages.
39 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Naphtali according to their families: that is, the cities and their villages.
40 ¶ The seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of Dan, according to their families.
41 And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Ir Shemesh,
42 And Shaalabbin, and Aijalon, and Jethlah,
43 And Elon, and Timnah, and Ekron,
44 And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,
45 And Jehud, and Bene Berak, and Gath Rimmon,
46 And Me Jarkon, and Rakkon, with the border that lieth before [l]Japho.
47 But the coast of the children of Dan fell out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to [m]fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan after the name of Dan their father.
48 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families: that is, these cities and their villages.
49 ¶ When they had made an end of dividing the land by the coasts thereof, then the children of Israel gave an inheritance unto Joshua the son of Nun among them.
50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnath Serah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city and dwelt therein.
51 These are the heritages which Eleazar the Priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the chief fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel divided by lot in Shiloh before the Lord at the door of the Tabernacle of the Congregation: so they made an end of dividing the country.
