Douay-Rheims Bible

Joshua 14

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

Joshua 14:1 This is what the children of Israel possessed in the land of Chanaan, which Eleazar the priest, and Josue the son of Nun, and the princes of the families by the tribes of Israel gave to them. Joshua 14:2 Dividing all by lot, as the Lord had commanded the hand of Moses, to the nine tribes, and the half tribe. Joshua 14:3 For to two tribes and a half Moses had given possession beyond the Jordan: besides the Levites, who received no land among their brethren: Joshua 14:4 But in their place succeeded the children of Joseph divided into two tribes, of Manasses and Ephraim: neither did the Levites receive other portion of land, but cities to dwell in, and their suburbs to feed their beasts and flocks. Joshua 14:5 As the Lord had commanded Moses so did the children of Israel, and they divided the land.

Caleb by privilege obtaineth Hebron.

Joshua 14:6 Then the children of Juda came to Josue in Galgal, and Caleb the son of Jephone the Cenezite spoke to him: Thou knowest what the Lord spoke to Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Cadesbarne. Joshua 14:7 I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from Cadesbarne, to view the land, and I brought him word again as to me seemed true, Joshua 14:8 But my brethren, that had gone up with me, discouraged the heart of the people: and I nevertheless followed the Lord my God. Joshua 14:9 And Moses swore in that day, saying: The land which thy foot hath trodden upon shall be thy possession, and thy children for ever, because thou hast followed the Lord my God. Joshua 14:10 The Lord therefore hath granted me life, as he promised until this present day, It is forty and five years since the Lord spoke this word to Moses, when Israel journeyed through the wilderness: this day I am eighty-five years old, Joshua 14:11 As strong as I was at that time when I was sent to view the land: the strength of that time continueth in me until this day, as well to fight as to march. Joshua 14:12 Give me therefore this mountain, which the Lord promised, in thy hearing also, wherein are the Enacims, and cities great and strong: if so be the Lord will be with me, and I shall be able to destroy them, as he promised me. Joshua 14:13 And Josue blessed him, and gave him Hebron in possession. Joshua 14:14 And from that time Hebron belonged to Caleb the son of Jephone the Cenezite, until this present day: because he followed the Lord the God of Israel. Joshua 14:15 The name of Hebron before was called Cariath-Arbe: Adam the greatest among the Enacims was laid there and the land rested from wars.
