Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Joshua 18

The Tabernacle is set up at Shiloh.

Joshua 18:1 Then were gathered together all the assembly of the sons of Israel at Shiloh, and they set up there, the tent of meeting,—the land, having been subdued before them.

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

Joshua 18:2 But there remained among the sons of Israel, to whom had not been apportioned their inheritance,—seven tribes. Joshua 18:3 So Joshua said unto the sons of Israel,—How long, will ye be too slothful, to enter in and take possession of the land, which Yahweh God of your fathers, hath given unto you? Joshua 18:4 Set forth for you three men for each tribe,—that I may send them, that they may arise—and go up and down in the land—and map it out as required for their inheritance, and come in unto me. Joshua 18:5 So shall they apportion it for themselves into seven parts,—Let, Judah, stay upon his boundary, on the south, and, the house of Joseph, stay upon their boundary, on the north, Joshua 18:6 but, ye, shall map out the [rest of the] land, into seven parts,—and bring in [your descriptions] unto me, here,—then will I cast lots for you here, before Yahweh our God. Joshua 18:7 For Levi hath no portion in your midst, for, the priesthood of Yahweh, is his inheritance,—and, Gad, and Reuben, and the half tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance, beyond the Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of Yahweh gave unto them.

Joshua 18:8 So the men arose, and went,—and Joshua commanded them who were going, to map out the land, saying—Take your journey and go up and down in the land, and map it out, and return unto me, and, here, will I cast lots for you before Yahweh, in Shiloh. Joshua 18:9 So the men went, and passed through the land, and mapped it out by cities, into seven parts, upon a scroll,—and came in unto Joshua, unto the camp, in Shiloh.

Joshua divideth it by lot.

Joshua 18:10 And Joshua cast for them lots, in Shiloh, before Yahweh,—and Joshua there apportioned the land unto the sons of Israel, according to their portions.

The lot of the border of Benjamin.

Joshua 18:11 Then came up the lot of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin, by their families,—and the boundary of their lot came out, between the sons of Judah and the sons of Joseph. Joshua 18:12 And so their boundary, on the north border, was from the Jordan,—and the boundary goeth up unto the side of Jericho on the north, and goeth up in the hill country, westward, and the extensions thereof are towards the wilderness of Beth-aven; Joshua 18:13 and the boundary passeth over from thence towards Luz, to the side of Luz, southwards, the same, is Bethel,—and the boundary goeth down to Ataroth-addah, by the mountain that is on the south of Beth-horon the nether; Joshua 18:14 then turneth the boundary and goeth round the west border, southward, from the mountain which faceth Beth-horon, southward, and so the extensions thereof are unto Kiriath-baal—the same, is Kiriath-jearim, a city of the sons of Judah,—this, is the west border. Joshua 18:15 And, the border southward, is from the uttermost part of Kiriath-jearim,—and the boundary goeth out westward, yea it goeth out unto the fountain of the waters of Nephtoah; Joshua 18:16 and the boundary goeth down to the uttermost part of the mountain which faceth the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is in the Vale of Giants, northward,—and descendeth the valley of Hinnom, unto the side of the Jebusite, southward, and then descendeth to En-rogel; Joshua 18:17 and it turneth on the north, and goeth out at En-shemesh, and goeth out unto Geliloth, which is over against the ascent of Adummim,—and goeth down by the Stone of Bohan, son of Reuben; Joshua 18:18 and passeth along unto the side over against the Arabah, northward,—and goeth down toward the Arabah; Joshua 18:19 and the boundary passeth along unto the side of Beth-hoglah, northward, and so the extensions of the boundary are unto the bay of the Salt Sea, northward, unto the end of the Jordan, southward,—This, is the south boundary. Joshua 18:20 And, the Jordan itself, boundeth it as an eastward border. This, is the inheritance of the sons of Benjamin, by the boundaries thereof round about, by their families.

Their cities.

Joshua 18:21 So then the cities of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin, by their families, are,—Jericho and Beth-hoglah, and Emekkeziz, Joshua 18:22 and Beth-arabah and Zemaraim, and Bethel, Joshua 18:23 and Avvim and Parah and Ophrah, Joshua 18:24 and Chephar-ammoni and Ophni, and Geba,—twelve cities, with their villages: Joshua 18:25 Gibeon and Ramah, and Beeroth, Joshua 18:26 and Mizpeh and Chephirah, and Mozah, Joshua 18:27 and Rekem and Irpeel, and Taralah, Joshua 18:28 and Zelah, Eleph, and the Jebusite, the same, is Jerusalem, Gibeath [and] Kiriath, fourteen cities, with their villages. This, is the inheritance of the song of Benjamin, by their families.
