9 Out of the tribe of the people of Judah and the tribe of the people of Simeon they gave the following cities mentioned by name,10 which went to the descendants of Aaron, one of the clans of the Kohathites who belonged to the people of Levi; since the lot fell to them first.11 They gave them Kiriath-arba (Arba being the father of Anak), that is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, along with the pasturelands around it.12 But the fields of the city and its villages had been given to Caleb the son of Jephunneh as his possession.
13 And to the descendants of Aaron the priest they gave Hebron, the city of refuge for the manslayer, with its pasturelands, Libnah with its pasturelands,14 Jattir with its pasturelands, Eshtemoa with its pasturelands,15 Holon with its pasturelands, Debir with its pasturelands,16 Ain with its pasturelands, Juttah with its pasturelands, Beth-shemesh with its pasturelands—nine cities out of these two tribes;17 then out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with its pasturelands, Geba with its pasturelands,18 Anathoth with its pasturelands, and Almon with its pasturelands—four cities.19 The cities of the descendants of Aaron, the priests, were in all thirteen cities with their pasturelands.
16 These are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari, the years of the life of Levi being 137 years.17 The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei, by their clans.18 The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, the years of the life of Kohath being 133 years.19 The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the clans of the Levites according to their generations.
17 And these were the sons of Levi by their names: Gershon and Kohath and Merari.18 And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their clans: Libni and Shimei.19 And the sons of Kohath by their clans: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel.20 And the sons of Merari by their clans: Mahli and Mushi. These are the clans of the Levites, by their fathers' houses.
