I will drive them out from before the {Israelites}; only allocate it to Israel as an inheritance just as I have commanded you. Therefore, divide this land as an inheritance to the nine tribes and the half-tribe of Manasseh." With it the Reubenites, and the Gadites received their inheritance, which Moses gave them beyond the Jordan to the east, just as Moses Yahweh's servant gave to them: from Aroer, which [is] on the edge of the wadi of Arnon, and the city which [is] in the middle of the wadi, and all the plateau [from] Medeba up to Dibon; and all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon up to the border of the {Ammonites}; and Gilead, and the border of the Geshurite and the Maacathites, all of {Mount Hermon}, and Bashan up to Salecah; all the kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei--he was left over from the survivors of the Rephaim; these Moses had defeated and driven out. But the {Israelites} did not drive out the Geshurites or the Maacathites; Geshur and Maacah live among Israel to this day. Only the tribe of Levites Moses did not give an inheritance; the offerings made by fire to Yahweh the God of Israel [are] their inheritance, just as he promised to them. Moses gave [an inheritance] to the tribe of the descendants of Reuben according to their families. Their territory was from Aroer, which [was] on the edge of the wadi of Arnon, and the city that [is] in the middle of the valley, and all the plateau by Medeba; Heshbon and its cities that [are] on the plateau; Dibon, Bamoth Baal, Beth Baal Meon, Jahaz, Kedemoth, Mephaath, Kiriathaim, Sibmah, and Zereth Shahar on the hill of the valley; Beth Peor, the slopes of Pisgah, and Beth Jeshimoth; all of the cities of the plateau, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon and whom Moses defeated with the leaders of Midian, Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba, the princes of Sihon who dwelled in the land. [In addition] to their slain, the {Israelites} killed with the sword Balaam son of Beor, who practiced divination. And the border of the descendants of Reuben [was] the Jordan and [its] banks. This [was] the inheritance of the descendants of Reuben according to their families, the cities, and their villages. Moses gave [an inheritance] to the tribe of Gad, to the descendants of Gad, according to their families. Their territory was Jazer and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the {Ammonites} up to Aroer, {which is east of Rabbah}; and from Heshbon up to Ramah-Mizpeh and Betonim, and from Mahanaim up to the territory to Debir; in the valley of Beth Haram, Beth Nimrah, Succoth, Zaphon, and the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, the Jordan and [its] banks, up to the [lower] end of the Kinnereth Sea beyond the Jordan to the east. This [is] the inheritance of the {Gadites} according to their families, the cities, and their villages. Moses gave [an inheritance] to the half-tribe of Manasseh; it was for the half-tribe of the descendants of Manasseh according to their families. Their territory was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the settlements of Jair, which [are] in Bashan, sixty cities, and half of Gilead, with Ashtaroth, Edrei, and the cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan; [these were allotted] to the children of Makir son of Manasseh, for half of the children of Makir according to their families. These [are the territories] that Moses gave as an inheritance on the desert-plateau of Moab, beyond the Jordan, east of Jericho. But to the tribe of Levi Moses did not give an inheritance; Yahweh the God of Israel, he [is] their inheritance, just as {he promised them}.

Joshua 15:1-63

The allotment for the tribe of the descendants of Judah according to their families reached to the border of Edom, to the wilderness of Zin, {to the far south}. Their southern border was from the end of the Salt Sea, from the bay facing southward; it continues to [the] south to the ascent of Akrabbim, passes [along] to Zin, it goes up south of Kadesh Barnea, passes [along] Hezron, goes up to Addar, and makes a turn to Karka;read more.
{it passes on} to Azmon, continues by the wadi of Egypt, and {it ends} at the sea. This will be your southern border. [The] eastern border [is] the Salt Sea up to the mouth of the Jordan. [The] border on [the] northern side [runs] from the bay of the sea at the mouth of the Jordan; the border goes up to Beth-hoglah and passes [along] north of Beth Arabah; and the border goes up the stone of Bohan son of Reuben; and the border goes up to Debir from the valley of Achor, and to the north, turning to Gilgal, which [is] opposite the ascent of Adummim, which [is] south of the wadi; and the border passes on to the waters of En Shemesh, and it ends at En Rogel. Then the border goes up [by] the Valley of Ben Hinnom to the slope of the Jebusites from [the] south (that [is], Jerusalem); and the border goes up to the top of the mountain that [lies] opposite the valley of Hinnom to the west, which is at the end of the valley of Rephaim to the north; then the border turns from the top of the mountain to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah, and continues from there to the cities of Mount Ephron; the border [then] turns [to] Baalah (that [is], Kiriath Jearim); and the border goes around from Baalah to the west, to Mount Seir, and passes on to the slope of Mount Jearim from the north (that [is], Kesalon), and goes down [to] Beth Shemesh, and passes [along by] Timnah. The border continues to the slope of Ekron to the north, [then] bends around to Shikkeron, it passes [on] to Mount Baalah and continues [to] Jabneel; and {the border ends} at the sea. And [the] western border [is] to the Great Sea and its coast. This [is] the border surrounding the descendants of Judah according to their families. {According to the commandment of Yahweh to Joshua}, he gave to Caleb son of Jephunneh a plot of ground among the descendants of Judah, Kiriath Arba, which [is] Hebron ([Arba] was Anak's father). Caleb drove out from there three of Anak's sons, Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai, the descendants of Anak. And from there he went up against the inhabitants of Debir (the former name of Debir [was] Kiriath Sepher). And Caleb said, "Whoever attacks Kiriath Sepher and captures it, I will give to him my daughter Acsah as a wife." Othniel son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, captured it, and he gave to him Acsah his daughter as a wife. When she came [to him] she urged him to ask her father for a field. So she dismounted from the donkey, and Caleb said to her, "{What do you want}?" And she said to him, "Give to me a gift; you have given me the land of the Negev, and you must give to me a spring of water." And he gave to her the upper and lower spring. This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the descendants of Judah according to their families: the cities belonging to the tribe of the descendants of Judah to the far south, to [the] border of Edom to the south, were Kabzeel, Eder, Jagur, Kinah, Dimonah, Adadah, Kedesh, Hazor, Ithnan, Ziph, Telem, Bealoth, Hazor Hadattah, Kerioth Hezron (that [is], Hazor), Amam, Shema, Moladah, Hazar Gaddah, Heshmon, Beth Pelet, Hazar Shual, Beersheba, Biziothiah, Baalah, Iim, Ezem, Eltolad, Kesil, Hormah, Ziklag, Madmannah, Sansannah, Lebaoth, Shilhim, Ain, and Rimmon; [in] all, twenty-nine cities and their villages.

But the descendants of Judah were unable to drive out the Jebusites, the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so the Jebusites live with the descendants of Judah in Jerusalem to this day.

Joshua 16:1-10

The allotment of the descendants of Joseph went from [the] Jordan by Jericho, at the waters of Jericho to the east, [into] the wilderness, going up from Jericho into the hill country [to] Bethel; it continues from Bethel to Luz, and it passes [along] to the territory of the Arkites at Ataroth. Then it goes down, to the west, to the territory of the Japhletites, up to the territory of Lower Beth-horon, then to Gezer, and {it ends} at the sea.read more.
And the descendants of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, received their inheritance. [This] was the border of the descendants of Ephraim according to their families: the border of their inheritance to the east [was] Ataroth Addar, up to Upper Beth-horon. The border continues to the sea; from Micmethath to [the] north, the border turns to the east to Taanath Shiloh, and it passes [along] it from the east to Janoah. Then it goes down from Janoah to Ataroth and to Naarah; it touches Jericho and ends [at] the Jordan; from Tappuah the border goes to the west, [to] the wadi of Kanah, and {it ends} at the sea. This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the descendants of Ephraim according to their families, with the cities that were set apart for the descendants of Ephraim in the midst of the inheritance of the descendants of Manasseh, all the cities and their villages. But they did not drive out the Canananites who were dwelling in Gezer, and so the Canaanites live in the midst of Ephraim to this day, but they became forced laborers.

Joshua 17:1-18

Then the allotment was made for the tribe of Manasseh, because he [was] the firstborn of Joseph. To Makir, the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead, {were allotted} Gilead and Bashan, because he was a warrior. [An allotment] was [made] for the remaining descendants of Manasseh, according to their families: For the children of Abiezer, Helek, Asriel, Shechem, Hepher, and Shemida--these [were] the male descendants of Manasseh son of Joseph according to their families. But Zelophehad son of Hepher, son of Gilead, son of Makir, son of Manasseh, had no sons, only daughters. These [are] the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.read more.
They came before Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the leaders, saying, "Yahweh commanded Moses to give an inheritance to us among our kinsmen." Therefore, according to the {command of Yahweh} he gave them an inheritance among the kinsmen of their father. Thus ten shares fell to Manasseh, besides the land of Gilead and Bashan, which [is] beyond the Jordan, because the daughters of Manasseh received an inheritance among his sons. And the land of Gilead was [allotted] to the remaining descendants of Manasseh. The border of Manasseh was from Asher [to] Micmethath, which [is] opposite Shechem; then the border goes to the south, to the inhabitants of En Tappuah. The land of Tappuah {belonged to Manasseh}, but Tuppuah on the border of Manasseh {belonged to the descendants of Ephraim}. Then the border goes down [to] the wadi of Kanah to the south of the wadi. These cities [belong] to Ephraim among the cities of Manasseh. The border of Manasseh [is] north of the wadi, and {it ends} at the sea. The south [is] Ephraim's, and the north [is] Manasseh's; the sea is their border; Asher touches [the] north and on [the] east Issachar. In Issachar and Asher, Manasseh had Beth-shean and its villages, Ibleam and its villages, the inhabitants of Dor and its villages, the inhabitants of En-dor and its villages, the inhabitants of Taanach and its villages, the inhabitants of Megiddo and its villages; the third is Napheth. But the descendants of Manasseh were not able to take possession of these towns; the Canaanites were determined to live in this land. And it happened, when the {Israelites} grew strong, they put the Canaanites to forced labor but never drove them out completely. The descendants of Joseph spoke with Joshua, saying, "Why have you given us one allotment and one share [as] an inheritance? We are many people, which Yahweh has blessed." And Joshua said to them, "If you [are] many people, go up to the forest and clear [a place] there for yourselves in the land of the Perizzites and Rephaim, since the hill country of Ephraim is [too] narrow for you." And the descendants of Joseph said, "The hill country is not enough for us, and all of the Canaanites living in the land of the valley [have] chariots of iron, those in Beth-shean and its villages, and those in the Jezreel Valley." And Joshua said to the house of Joseph, to Ephraim and Manasseh, "You are many people and have great power; you will not have one allotment [only]; [the] hill country will be yours. Even though it [is] a forest, you will clear it, and it will be yours [to] its farthest borders. You will drive out the Canaanites, even though they have iron chariots and [are] strong."

Joshua 18:11-28

And the allotment of the tribe of Benjamin came up according to their families, and the border of their allotment fell between the descendants of Judah and the descendants of Joseph. Their northern border began at the Jordan and went up to the slope of Jericho on [the] north and continued into the hill country to the west; {it ends} at the wilderness of Beth Aven. The border passes [on] from there to Luz, to the slope of Luz to the south (that [is], Bethel); then the border goes down to Ataroth Addar to the mountain that is south of Lower Beth-Horon.read more.
Then the border changes direction and turns to the western side southward, from the mountain that {is opposite} Beth-Horon to the south. {It ends} at Kiriath Baal (that [is], Kiriath Jearim), a town belonging to the descendants of Judah. This [is the] western side. [The] southern side [begins] on the outskirts of Kiriath Jearim, and the border continues to the west to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah; the border goes down to the foot of the mountain, which [is] opposite the Valley of Ben Hinnom, which [is] in the valley of Rephaim to the north; then it does down the valley of Hinnom to the slope of the Jebusites to the south, and then it goes down [to] En Rogel. It changes direction from [the] north, and it continues [to] En Shemesh; it goes out to Geliloth, which [is] opposite the ascent of Adummim, and it goes down [to] the stone of Bohan, son of Reuben. It passes [on] to the slope opposite the Arabah to the north, and it goes down to the Arabah. The border passes [on] to the slope of Beth-hoglah to the north and {ends} at the north bay of the Salt Sea at the south end of the Jordan. This is the southern border. The Jordan forms its border on the eastern side. This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of Benjamin, its borders that surrounds [them], according to their families. Now the towns of the tribes of the descendants of Benjamin, according to their families, were Jericho, Beth-hoglah, Emek Keziz, Beth Arabah, Zemaraim, Bethel, Avvim, Parah, Ophrah, Kephar Ammoni, Ophni, and Geba; twelve cities and their villages.

Ain, Rimmon, Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their villages, and all the villages that [were] around these towns up to Baalat-Beor, Ramath of the Negev. This [was] the inheritance of the tribe of the descendants of Simeon according to their families. Part of the portion [allotted to] the descendants of Judah [became] the inheritance of the descendants of Simeon because the portion for the descendants of Judah was {too large for them}, so the descendants of Simeon inherited [from] their inheritance. The third allotment came up for the descendants of Zebulun according to their families. The border of their inheritance went up to Sarid. Their border goes up to the west, to Maralah; it touches Dabbesheth, then the wadi that [is] opposite Jokneam. It turns from Sarid to the east to the sunrise, to the border of Kislot-Tabor; it continues to Daberath and goes up [to] Japhia. From there it passes [along] to the east toward the sunrise, to Gath Hepher and to Eth Kazin, and continuing [to] Rimmon, it turns [to] Neah; it changes direction from the north of Hannathon, and {it ends} at the valley of Yiptah-El; Kattath, Nahalal, Shimron, Idalah, and Bethlehem; twelve cities and their villages.

[Included were] Ummah, Aphek, and Rehob; twenty-two cities and their villages. This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the descendants of Asher according to their families, these cities and their villages. The sixth allotment {fell} for the children of Naphtali, for the children of Naphtali according to their families. Their border was from Heleph, from [the] oak in Zaanannim, Adami Nekeb, Jabneel, up to Lakkum; {it ends} at the Jordan; then the border turns to the west, to Aznoth Tabor, and continues from there to Hukok, and it touches Zebulun on [the] south, Asher on [the] west, and Judah on {the east} [at] the Jordan. {The fortified cities} [are] Ziddim, Zer, Hammath, Rakkath, Kinnereth, Adamah, Ramah, Hazor, Kedesh, Edrei, En Hazor, Yiron, Migdal El, Horem, Beth-anath, Beth Shemesh; nineteen cities and their villages.

This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the descendants of Dan according to their families, these cities and their villages.
