Joshua 18

The Tabernacle is set up at Shiloh.

Joshua 18:1 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there: and the land was subdued before them.

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

Joshua 18:2 And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance. Joshua 18:3 And Joshua said to the children of Israel, How long [are] ye slack to go to possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you? Joshua 18:4 Select from among you three men for [each] tribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and describe it according to the inheritance of them, and they shall come [again] to me. Joshua 18:5 And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide in their border on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in their borders on the north. Joshua 18:6 Ye shall therefore describe the land [in] seven parts, and bring [the description] hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God. Joshua 18:7 But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD [is] their inheritance. And Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.

Joshua 18:8 And the men arose, and departed: and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go, and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh. Joshua 18:9 And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities in seven parts in a book, and came [again], to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.

Joshua divideth it by lot.

Joshua 18:10 And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel according to their divisions.

The lot of the border of Benjamin.

Joshua 18:11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the border of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph. Joshua 18:12 And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side, and went up through the mountains westward; and the limits of it were at the wilderness of Beth-aven. Joshua 18:13 And the border went over from thence towards Luz, to the side of Luz (which [is] Beth-el) southward; and the border descended to Ataroth-adar, near the hill that [lieth] on the south side of the nether Beth-horon. Joshua 18:14 And the border was drawn [thence], and compassed the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that [lieth] before Beth-horon southward; and the limits of it were at Kirjath-baal (which [is] Kirjath-jearim) a city of the children of Judah. This [was] the west quarter. Joshua 18:15 And the south quarter [was] from the end of Kirjah-jearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of waters of Nephtoah: Joshua 18:16 And the border came down to the end of the mountain that [lieth] before the valley of the son of Hinnom, [and] which [is] in the valley of the giants on the north, and descended to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended to En-rogel, Joshua 18:17 And was drawn from the north, and went forth to En-shemesh, and went forth towards Geliloth, which [is] over against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben, Joshua 18:18 And passed along towards the side over against Arabah northward, and went down to Arabah: Joshua 18:19 And the border passed along to the side of Beth-hoglah northward: and the limits of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan. This [was] the south border. Joshua 18:20 And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This [was] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the limits of it round about, according to their families.

Their cities.

Joshua 18:21 Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin, according to their families, were Jericho, and Beth-hoglah, and the valley of Keziz, Joshua 18:22 And Beth-arabah, and Zemaraim, and Beth-el, Joshua 18:23 And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah, Joshua 18:24 And Chephar-haamonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; 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 Jebusi, (which [is] Jerusalem) Gibeath, [and] Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This [is] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.
