19-21 People from the south will take over the Esau mountains;
people from the foothills will overrun the Philistines.
They’ll take the farms of Ephraim and Samaria,
and Benjamin will take Gilead.
Earlier, Israelite exiles will come back
and take Canaanite land to the north at Zarephath.

will come back and take the cities in the south.

will go into the mountains of Esau
And rule justly and fairly,
a rule that honors God’s kingdom.
