Young's Literal Translation

Joshua 14

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

Joshua 14:1 And these [are] they [of] the sons of Israel who inherited in the land of Canaan, whom Eleazar the priest, and Joshua son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the sons of Israel, caused to inherit; Joshua 14:2 by lot [is] their inheritance, as Jehovah commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine of the tribes, and the half of the tribe; Joshua 14:3 for Moses hath given the inheritance of two of the tribes, and of half of the tribe, beyond the Jordan, and to the Levites he hath not given an inheritance in their midst; Joshua 14:4 for the sons of Joseph hath been two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim, and they have not given a portion to the Levites in the land, except cities to dwell in, and their suburbs for their cattle, and for their possessions; Joshua 14:5 as Jehovah commanded Moses, so have the sons of Israel done, and they apportion the land.

Caleb by privilege obtaineth Hebron.

Joshua 14:6 And the sons of Judah come nigh unto Joshua in Gilgal, and Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenezzite saith unto him, 'Thou hast known the word that Jehovah hath spoken unto Moses the man of God, concerning me and concerning thee in Kadesh-Barnea: Joshua 14:7 a son of forty years [am] I in Moses, servant of Jehovah, sending me from Kadesh-Barnea, to spy the land, and I bring him back word as with my heart; Joshua 14:8 and my brethren who have gone up with me have caused the heart of the people to melt, and I have been fully after Jehovah my God; Joshua 14:9 and Moses sweareth in that day, saying, If not—the land on which thy foot hath trodden, to thee it is for inheritance, and to thy sons—to the age, for thou hast been fully after Jehovah my God. Joshua 14:10 'And, now, lo, Jehovah hath kept me alive, as He hath spoken, these forty and five years, since Jehovah spake this word unto Moses, when Israel went in the wilderness; and now, lo, I [am] to-day a son of five and eighty years; Joshua 14:11 yet [am] I to-day strong as in the day of Moses' sending me; as my power then, so [is] my power now, for battle, and to go out, and to come in. Joshua 14:12 'And now, give to me this hill-country, of which Jehovah spake in that day, for thou didst hear in that day, for Anakim [are] there, and cities, great, fenced; if so be Jehovah [is] with me, then I have dispossessed them, as Jehovah hath spoken.' Joshua 14:13 And Joshua blesseth him, and giveth Hebron to Caleb son of Jephunneh for an inheritance, Joshua 14:14 therefore hath Hebron been to Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenezzite for an inheritance unto this day, because that he was fully after Jehovah, God of Israel; Joshua 14:15 and the name of Hebron formerly [is] Kirjath-Arba (he [is] the great man among the Anakim); and the land hath rest from war.
