Matthew Bible

Joshua 14

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

Joshua 14:1 And these are the countreyes whiche the children enhered in the land of Canaan, vnto which Eleazar the prieste, and Iosua the sonne of Nun, and the auncient heades of the trybes of the chyldren of Israel, Joshua 14:2 gaue them their enheritaunce by lotte, as the Lorde commaunded by the hande of Moses, to geue vnto the nyne trybes, and vnto the halfe trybe of Manasses. Joshua 14:3 For Moses had geuen enheritaunce vnto two tribes and an halfe on the other syde Iordan. But vnto the Leuites he gaue none enheritaunce among them. Joshua 14:4 For the chyldren of Ioseph were two trybes, Manasses and Ephraim. And therfore they gaue no parte vnto the Leuites in the lande, saue cyties to dwelle in, and þe suburbes of the same, for their beastes & cattels Joshua 14:5 as the Lorde commaunded Moses, euen so the chyldren of Israel dyd when they deuided the lande.

Caleb by privilege obtaineth Hebron.

Joshua 14:6 And the chyldren of Iuda came vnto Iosua in Galgall. And Caleb the sonne of Iephune the Kenesyte sayd vnto him, thou wotest what the Lord said vnto Moses the man of God, aboute me and the in Cades Barne. Joshua 14:7 Fourty yere olde was I, when Moses the seruaunte of the Lorde sente me from Cades barne to spye oute the lande. And I brought him worde again, euen as I thought in myne herte. Joshua 14:8 Neuerthelesse my brethren that wente vp wysh me discouraged the hertes of þe people. But I folowed the Lord my God euen vnto the ende. Joshua 14:9 And Moses sware the same ceason saying the lande wheron thy fete haue trooden, shalbe thyne enheritaunce, & thy children for euer because thou hast folowed the Lord my God continuallye. Joshua 14:10 And now behold, the Lord hath kepte me lusty (as he sayd) this fourtye and fyue yeares, euen sence the Lorde spake vnto vnto Moses, whyle the chyldren of Israell wanderyd in the wyldernesse. And now se I am thys daye foure skore and fyue yeres, Joshua 14:11 and yet am as stronge at thys tyme, as I was when Moses sent me: loke how strong I was then, so strong I am now, to warre and to do al maner of thynges. Joshua 14:12 Now therfore geue me thys mountayne, whyche the Lorde at that tyme promysed, for thou herdest at that tyme, how the Enakims were there, and how the cytyes were greate & walled. I trust the Lord wylbe wyth me, and I shal dryue them out as the Lorde sayd. Joshua 14:13 And Iosua blessed Caleb the sonne of Iephune & gaue him Hebron to enherete. Joshua 14:14 And Hebron became the enheritaunce of Caleb the sonne of Iephune the kenesite, vnto this daye: because he folowed the Lorde God of Israell perpetually. Joshua 14:15 And the name of Hebron, was called in the olde tyme, Kariatharbe, which was a huge man among the Enakims. And the lande ceased from warre.
