   Simeon's Tribal Lands
   1 The second lot belonged to the tribe of Simeon by its clans. 2 Their assigned land included Beer Sheba, Moladah, 3 Hazar Shual, Balah, Ezem, 4 Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah, 5 Ziklag, Beth Marcaboth, Hazar Susah, 6 Beth Lebaoth, and Sharuhen - a total of thirteen cities and their towns, 7 Ain, Rimmon, Ether, and Ashan - a total of four cities and their towns, 8 as well as all the towns around these cities as far as Baalath Beer (Ramah of the Negev). This was the land assigned to the tribe of Simeon by its clans. 9 Simeon's assigned land was taken from Judah's allotted portion, for Judah's territory was too large for them; so Simeon was assigned land within Judah.
   Zebulun's Tribal Lands
   10 The third lot belonged to the tribe of Zebulun by its clans. The border of their territory extended to Sarid. 11 Their border went up westward to Maralah and touched Dabbesheth and the valley near Jokneam. 12 From Sarid it turned eastward to the territory of Kisloth Tabor, extended to Daberath, and went up to Japhia. 13 From there it crossed eastward to Gath Hepher and Eth Kazin and extended to Rimmon, turning toward Neah. 14 It then turned on the north to Hannathon and ended at the Valley of Iphtah El. 15 Their territory included Kattah, Nahalal, Shimron, Idalah, and Bethlehem; in all they had twelve cities and their towns. 16 This was the land assigned to the tribe of Zebulun by its clans, including these cities and their towns.
   Issachar's Tribal Lands
   17 The fourth lot belonged to the tribe of Issachar by its clans. 18 Their assigned land included Jezreel, Kesulloth, Shunem, 19 Hapharaim, Shion, Anaharath, 20 Rabbith, Kishion, Ebez, 21 Remeth, En Gannim, En Haddah and Beth Pazzez. 22 Their border touched Tabor, Shahazumah, and Beth Shemesh, and ended at the Jordan. They had sixteen cities and their towns. 23 This was the land assigned to the tribe of Issachar by its clans, including the cities and their towns.
   Asher's Tribal Lands
   24 The fifth lot belonged to the tribe of Asher by its clans. 25 Their territory included Helkath, Hali, Beten, Acshaph, 26 Alammelech, Amad, and Mishal. Their border touched Carmel to the west and Shihor Libnath. 27 It turned eastward toward Beth Dagon, touched Zebulun and the Valley of Iphtah El to the north, as well as the Valley of Emek and Neiel, and extended to Cabul on the north 28 and on to Ebron, Rehob, Hammon, and Kanah, as far as Greater Sidon. 29 It then turned toward Ramah as far as the fortified city of Tyre, turned to Hosah, and ended at the sea near Hebel, Aczib, 30 Umah, Aphek, and Rehob. In all they had twenty-two cities and their towns. 31 This was the land assigned to the tribe of Asher by its clans, including these cities and their towns.
   Naphtali's Tribal Lands
   32 The sixth lot belonged to the tribe of Naphtali by its clans. 33 Their border started at Heleph and the oak of Zaanannim, went to Adami Nekeb, Jabneel and on to Lakkum, and ended at the Jordan River. 34 It turned westward to Aznoth Tabor, extended from there to Hukok, touched Zebulun on the south, Asher on the west, and the Jordan on the east. 35 The fortified cities included Ziddim, Zer, Hammath, Rakkath, Kinnereth, 36 Adamah, Ramah, Hazor, 37 Kedesh, Edrei, En Hazor, 38 Yiron, Migdal El, Horem, Beth Anath, and Beth Shemesh. In all they had nineteen cities and their towns. 39 This was the land assigned to the tribe of Naphtali by its clans, including the cities and their towns.
   Dan's Tribal Lands
   40 The seventh lot belonged to the tribe of Dan by its clans. 41 Their assigned land included Zorah, Eshtaol, Ir Shemesh, 42 Shaalabbin, Aijalon, Ithlah, 43 Elon, Timnah, Ekron, 44 Eltekeh, Gibbethon, Baalath, 45 Jehud, Bene Berak, Gath Rimmon,19:46 the waters of Jarkon, and Rakkon, including the territory in front of Joppa. 47 (The Danites failed to conquer their territory, so they went up and fought with Leshem and captured it. They put the sword to it, took possession of it, and lived in it. They renamed it Dan after their ancestor.) 48 This was the land assigned to the tribe of Dan by its clans, including these cities and their towns.
   Joshua Receives Land
   49 When they finished dividing the land into its regions, the Israelites gave Joshua son of Nun some land. 50 As the LORD had instructed, they gave him the city he requested - Timnath Serah in the Ephraimite hill country. He built up the city and lived in it.
   51 These are the land assignments which Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the Israelite tribal leaders made by drawing lots in Shiloh before the LORD at the entrance of the tent of meeting. So they finished dividing up the land.

King James Version


   1 And the second lot came forth to Simeon, even for the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families: and their inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of Judah.
   2 And they had in their inheritance Beer-sheba, or Sheba, and Moladah,
   3 And Hazar-shual, and Balah, and Azem,
   4 And Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah,
   5 And Ziklag, and Beth-marcaboth, and Hazar-susah,
   6 And Beth-lebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their villages:
   7 Ain, Remmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their villages:
   8 And all the villages that were round about these cities to Baalath-beer, Ramath of the south. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families.
   9 Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them.
   10 ¶ And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun according to their families: and the border of their inheritance was unto Sarid:
   11 And their border went up toward the sea, and Maralah, and reached to Dabbasheth, and reached to the river that is before Jokneam;
   12 And turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the border of Chisloth-tabor, and then goeth out to Daberath, and goeth up to Japhia,
   13 And from thence passeth on along on the east to Gittah-hepher, to Ittah-kazin, and goeth out to Remmon-methoar to Neah;
   14 And the border compasseth it on the north side to Hannathon: and the outgoings thereof are in the valley of Jiphthah-el:
   15 And Kattath, and Nahallal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and Beth-lehem: twelve cities with their villages.
   16 This is the inheritance of the children of Zebulun according to their families, these cities with their villages.
   17 ¶ And the fourth lot came out to Issachar, for the children of Issachar according to their families.
   18 And their border was toward Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and Shunem,
   19 And Haphraim, and Shion, and Anaharath,
   20 And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,
   21 And Remeth, and En-gannim, and En-haddah, and Beth-pazzez;
   22 And the coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and Beth-shemesh; and the outgoings of their border were at Jordan: sixteen cities with their villages.
   23 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Issachar according to their families, the cities and their villages.
   24 ¶ And the fifth lot came out for the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families.
   25 And their border was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and Achshaph,
   26 And Alammelech, and Amad, and Misheal; and reacheth to Carmel westward, and to Shihor-libnath;
   27 And turneth toward the sunrising to Beth-dagon, and reacheth to Zebulun, and to the valley of Jiphthah-el toward the north side of Beth-emek, and Neiel, and goeth out to Cabul on the left hand,
   28 And Hebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, even unto great Zidon;
   29 And then the coast turneth to Ramah, and to the strong city Tyre; and the coast turneth to Hosah; and the outgoings thereof are at the sea from the coast to Achzib:
   30 Ummah also, and Aphek, and Rehob: twenty and two cities with their villages.
   31 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families, these cities with their villages.
   32 ¶ The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, even for the children of Naphtali according to their families.
   33 And their coast was from Heleph, from Allon to Zaanannim, and Adami, Nekeb, and Jabneel, unto Lakum; and the outgoings thereof were at Jordan:
   34 And then the coast turneth westward to Aznoth-tabor, and goeth out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the south side, and reacheth to Asher on the west side, and to Judah upon Jordan toward the sunrising.
   35 And the fenced cities are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath, and Chinnereth,
   36 And Adamah, and Ramah, and Hazor,
   37 And Kedesh, and Edrei, and En-hazor,
   38 And Iron, and Migdal-el, Horem, and Beth-anath, and Beth-shemesh; nineteen cities with their villages.
   39 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Naphtali according to their families, the cities and their villages.
   40 ¶ And the seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families.
   41 And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Ir-shemesh,
   42 And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,
   43 And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron,
   44 And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,
   45 And Jehud, and Bene-berak, and Gath-rimmon,
   46 And Me-jarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho.
   47 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.
   48 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages.
   49 ¶ When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:
   50 According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnath-serah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.
   51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.
