Joshua 14

The nine tribes and half are to have their inheritance by lot.

Joshua 14:1 And these [are the countreys] which the children of Israel inherited in the lande of Canaan, which Eleazar the Priest, & Ioshua the sonne of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel distributed for inheritance to them: Joshua 14:2 By lot [was] their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by the hande of Moses, for the nine tribes, and for the halfe tribe. Joshua 14:3 For Moses had giuen the inheritance of two tribes and an halfe tribe, on the other side Iordan: but vnto the Leuites hee gaue none inheritance among them. Joshua 14:4 For the children of Ioseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they gaue no part vnto the Leuites in the land, saue cities to dwell [in], with their suburbs for their cattell, and for their substance. Joshua 14:5 As the LORD commaunded Moses, so the children of Israel did, and they diuided the land.

Caleb by privilege obtaineth Hebron.

Joshua 14:6 Then the children of Iudah came vnto Ioshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the sonne of Iephunneh the Kenezite, said vnto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said vnto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee, in Kadesh Barnea. Joshua 14:7 Fourtie yeeres olde [was] I when Moses the seruant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea, to espie out the land, and I brought him worde againe, as it was in mine heart. Joshua 14:8 Neuerthelesse, my brethren that went vp with me, made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God. Joshua 14:9 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet haue troden, shall be thine inheritance, and thy childrens for euer, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God. Joshua 14:10 And now beholde, the LORD hath kept me aliue, as he said, these forty and fiue yeres, euen since the LORD spake this word vnto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wildernesse: and now loe, I am this day fourescore and fiue yeeres old. Joshua 14:11 As yet I am as strong this day, as [I was] in the day that Moses sent mee: as my strength was then, euen so is my strength now, for warre, both to goe out and to come in. Joshua 14:12 Now therefore giue mee this mountaine, whereof the LORD spake in that day, (for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims [were] there, and [that] the cities [were] great [and] fenced) if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall bee able to driue them out, as the LORD said. Joshua 14:13 And Ioshua blessed him, and gaue vnto Caleb the sonne of Iephunneh, Hebron for an inheritance. Joshua 14:14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the sonne of Iephunneh the Kenezite vnto this day: because that hee wholly followed the LORD God of Israel. Joshua 14:15 And the name of Hebron before, [was] Kiriath-Arba, which [Arba] was a great man among the Anakims: and the land had rest from warre.
