Now Joshua was old [and] {advanced in years}, and Yahweh said to him, "You are old [and] {advanced in years}, and very much of the land remains to be possessed. This [is] the remaining land: all the regions of the Philistines, and all [of] the Geshurites, from the Shihor, which [is] {east of Egypt}, up to the border of Ekron to [the] north, which is reckoned as Canaanite; [there are] five Philistine rulers: the Gazites, Ashdodites, Ashkelonites, Gittites, Ekronites, and the more.
In [the] south; all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah, which [belongs] to the Sidonians up to Aphek, to the border of the Amorites, and the land of the Gebalites, and all the Lebanon, {toward the east}, from Baal Gad {at the foot of} Mount Hermon up to Lebo-Hamath; all the inhabitants of the hill country, from the Lebanon up to Misrephoth Maim, and all [the] Sidonians. 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}.
