Joshua 18

The Tabernacle is set up at Shiloh.

Joshua 18:1 And the whole congregacion of the children of Israel came together at Silo, and set vp the tabernacle of witnesse there, and the lande was in subieccion before them.

The remainder of the land is described, and divided into seven parts.

Joshua 18:2 And there remayned amonge the children of Israel seuen tribes, whych had not yet receaued their enheritaunce. Joshua 18:3 And Iosua sayd vnto the children of Israel: how long are ye so slacke to come, and possesse the lande which the Lord God of youre fathers hath geuen you? Joshua 18:4 Geue out from amonge you for euery trybe thre men, that I maye sende them. And that they maye ryse, and walke thorowe the lande and distribute it according to the enheritaunce therof, and come agayne to me. Joshua 18:5 And let them deuyde it vnto them in to seuen partes. And Iuda shal abyde in their coaste on þe south, and the house of Ioseph shall stande in their coastes on the northe. Joshua 18:6 Descrybe ye the lande therfore into seuen partes, and bryng the descripcion hether to me, and I shall cast lottes for you here before the Lord oure God. Joshua 18:7 But the Leuites haue no parte among you, for the preasthode of the lorde is their enheritaunce. And God, and Ruben, and halfe the tribd of Manasses haue receaued their enheritaunce beyonde Iordan eastwarde, which Moses the seruaunt of the Lorde gaue them.

Joshua 18:8 And the men arose, & went their waye. And Iosua charged them that went to describe the lande, saying: departe, & go thorowe the lande, and describe it, & come agayne to me, þt I maye here cast lottes for you before þe Lorde in Silo. Joshua 18:9 And the men departed, & walked thorowe the lande, & described it by cyties into seuen partes, in a booke, and retourned to Iosua into the hoste at Silo.

Joshua divideth it by lot.

Joshua 18:10 And Iosua cast lottes for them in Silo before the Lorde, and there Iosua deuyded þe land vnto the children of Israell, to eche their porcion.

The lot of the border of Benjamin.

Joshua 18:11 And the lotte of the tribe of the children of Beniamin came vp according to their kynredes. And þe coaste of their lotte came out betwene þe children of Iuda and the children of Ioseph. Joshua 18:12 And their north coaste was from Iordan, and went vp to the syde of Iericho on þe northsyde, & went vp thorowe the mountaynes westward, & they ended at the wildernesse of Bethauen: Joshua 18:13 and went from thence to the southsyde of Lus (þe same is Bethel) & descended agayne to Atrothadar, vnto þe hylle that lyeth on the southe syde of þe nether Bethhoron. Joshua 18:14 And the coaste turneth thence, & compaseth the corner of þe see southwarde, euen from the hill þt lyeth before Bethhoron southwarde, & goeth out at kiriathbaal which is kiriath Iarim, a cytie of the children of Iuda: this is the west quarter: Joshua 18:15 & the south coaste goeth from the edge of kiriathiarim, and gothe out westwarde, and thence it turneth to the waterwell of Nephthoah, Joshua 18:16 & commeth downe agayne to þe edge of the hill, þt lyeth before þe valeye of þe sonne of Hennon, euen in the valeye of the Giauntes northwarde and descendeth into þe valeye of Hennon besyde Iebusy southwarde, and gothe downe to the well of Rogell, Joshua 18:17 and compaseth from the north, and goeth forth to the well of þe sonne, and departeth from thence to þe places of Geliloth, which are toward þe goyng vp vnto Adomim: & goeth downe to þe stone of Bohan þe sonne of Ruben: Joshua 18:18 & then goeth alonge towarde the syde of the playne, northwarde: and goeth downe into the feldes: Joshua 18:19 and goeth along to the syde of Bethhaglah northwarde, & endeth at the pointe of the salt see north therfrom, euen at the south ende of Iordan. This is the southe coaste. Joshua 18:20 And Iordan kepeth in this coast on the east syde, and this is the enheritaunce of the children of Beniamin by their coastes rounde aboute thorow out their kynredes.

Their cities.
