OW Joshua was old and strickem in years; and the LORD said unto him, Thou art old and stricken in years, and there remaineth yet very much land 1 to be possessed. 2 This is the land that yet a remaineth : all the borders of the Philistines, and all Geshuri, b 3 From Sihor, c which is before Egypt, even unto the borders of Ekron northward, which is counted to the Canaanite : five d lords of the Phillistines; the Gazathites, and the Ashdothites, the Eshkalonites, the Gittites, and the Ekromites; also the e Avites: 4 From the south all the land of the Canaanites, and 2 Mearah that is beside the Sidonians, unto Aphek, f to the borders g of the Amorites: 5 And the land of the Giblites, h and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising, from Baal-gadi undermount Hermon unto t entering into Hamath. 6 All the inhabitants of the hill country, from Lebanon unto Misrephoth-maim, k and all, the Sidonians, them will I drive l out from before the children of Israel: only m divide thou it by lot unto the Israelites for an inheritance, asl have commanded thee. 7 Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance unto the nine * and the half tribe of ManasSen, 8 With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received their inheritance, which Moses n gave them, beyond Jordan eastward, even as Moses the servant of the LORD gave them ; 9 From Aroer, that is upon the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that is in the midst of the river, and all the plain of Medebao unto
10 And all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon unto the border of the children of Ammon ;

And half Gilead, and h Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were pertainfing unto the children of Machir the son of Manasseh, even to the one half of the children of Machir by their families. 32 These are the countries which Moses did distribute for inheritance in the plains of Moab, on the other side Jordan, by Jericho, eastward. 33 But i unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave not any inheritance : the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said k unto
them. CHAPTER XIV. Caleb by privilege obtaineth Hebron. ND these are the countries which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar a the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for inheritance to them. 2 By lot b was their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and for the half tribe. 3 For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and an half tribe on the other side Jordan : but unto the Levites he gave none inheritarlGé *ś 4 For the children of Joseph were c two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save citiesd to dwell in, with their suburbs e for their cattle and for their subStance. 5 As f the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did, and they divided theiand. 6 * Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Calcà obtains Hebron.

heart. 8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people m melt: but I whollyn followed the LORD my God. 9 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon o thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children's for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God. 10, And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, p these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the children of Israeli wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old. 11. As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as q my strength was then, even , so is my strength now, for war, both to r go out, and to come
