Joshua 18

The Tabernacle is set up at Shiloh.

Joshua 18:1 And the whole congregacion of the children of Israell came together at Siloh, and set vp the tabernacle of wytnesse there, and the lande was in subieccyon before them.

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

Joshua 18:2 But there remayned among the chyldren of Israel seuen tribes, which had not their enheritaunce deuyded oute. Joshua 18:3 And Iosua sayd vnto the children of Israel, how long are ye so slacke to go & possesse þe land whych the Lord God of youre fathers hath geuen you? Joshua 18:4 Bring of euery tribe .iij. men, þt I maye sende them. And that they may ryse & walke thorowe the land & distribute it by their enheritaunces, & come agayne to me. Joshua 18:5 Deuide it into seuen partes. For Iuda shall abyde by theyr coastes in the south, & the house of Ioseph shal stande to their coastes in the north. Joshua 18:6 Describe ye þe lande therfore into seuen partes, & bring the descrypcion to me hether, that I may cast lottes for you here before the Lorde oure God. Joshua 18:7 The Leuites haue no part amonge you, for þe priestshype of the Lorde is theyr enheritaunce. And Gad, Ruben, and halfe the trybe of Manasses haue receiued their enheritaunce beyonde Iordan Eastward, which Moses the seruaunt of the Lorde gaue them.

Joshua 18:8 And the men arose and want their waye. And Iosua charged them that went to describe the lande saying, hence and go thorowe the lande and describe it, and come agayne to me hether: and I will cast lottes for you before þe Lorde in Siloh. Joshua 18:9 And the men departed, and walked thorow the lande and descrybed it by cyties into seuen partes in a boke, and returned to Iosua into the hoste at Siloh.

Joshua divideth it by lot.

Joshua 18:10 And Iosua caste lottes for them in Siloh before the Lorde, and there he deuided the land vnto the chyldren of Israel, to eche their porcion.

The lot of the border of Benjamin.

Joshua 18:11 And the lotte of the trybe of þe children of Beniamin came vp accordinge to their kynredes. And the coastes of their lot came out betwene the chyldren of Iuda, and the children of Ioseph.
