Joshua 14

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

Joshua 14:1 And these are the contreyes which the chyldren of Israell enhereted in þe lande of Canaan, which Eleazer the preaste, and Iosua the sonne of Nun and the auncient heades of þe trybes of the chyldren of Israell, distributed to them. Joshua 14:2 By lotte they receaued their possessions as the Lorde commaunded by þe hande of Moses, to geue vnto the nyne trybes, & vnto þe halfe trybe. Joshua 14:3 For Moses had geuen enheritaunce vnto two trybes and an halfe on þe other syde Iordan. But vnto þe Leuites he gaue none enheritaunce amonge them. Joshua 14:4 For the children of Ioseph were two tribes, Manasses & Ephraim. And therfore they gaue no parte vnto the Leuites in the land, saue cyties to dwell in with the suburbes of the same, for their beastes and cattell. Joshua 14:5 As the Lorde commaunded Moses: euen so þe children of Israel did when they deuided þe lande.

Caleb by privilege obtaineth Hebron.

Joshua 14:6 And the children of Iuda came vnto Iosua in Gilgall. And Caleb the sonne of Iephune þe kenesyte sayde vnto hym: thou wottest what the Lorde sayd vnto Moses the man of God, about my matter and thyne in Cades Barne. Joshua 14:7 Fourty yeare olde was I when Moses the seruaunt of the Lorde sent me from Cades Barne to spie out the lande. And I brought hym worde agayne euen as it was in myne herte. Joshua 14:8 Neuerthelesse my brethren that went vp wyth me, dyscouraged the herte of the people. And I folowed the Lorde God. Joshua 14:9 And Moses sware þe same daye, saying: the lande wheron thy fete haue troaden, shalbe thyne enheritaunce and thy chyldrens for euer, because þu hast folowed the Lorde God. Joshua 14:10 And beholde, the Lorde hath kept me alyue (as he sayde) this fourtye and fyue yeares, euen sence the Lord spake this word vnto Moses, whyle the chyldren of Israell wanderyd in the wyldernesse. And now lo, I am this daye foure skore & fyue yere old: Joshua 14:11 & yet am as stronge at this tyme, as I was when Moses sent me: looke how stronge I was then, so strong am I now whether I go to warre, or come agayne. Joshua 14:12 Now therfore geue me thys mountayne wherof the Lorde spake in that daye, for þu herdest in that daye, how the Enakins are there, and the cities great & walled. Peraduenture the Lorde wilbe with me, & I shall he able to dryue them out, as the Lorde sayd. Joshua 14:13 And Iosua blessed him, & gaue vnto Caleb the sonne of Iephune, Hebron to enheret. Joshua 14:14 And Hebron therfore became þe enheritaunce of Caleb the sonne of Iephune the kenesite, vnto thys daye: because he folowed þe Lord God of Israell. Joshua 14:15 And the name of Hebron was called in olde tyme, kariatharbe. For the same was a great man amonge the Enakims. And the lande ceased from warre.
