1 Hoc est, quod hereditave runt filii Israel in terra Cha naan, quod dederunt eis Eleazar sacerdos et Iosue filius Nun et principes familiarum tribuum Israel,
2 sorte omnia dividentes, sicut praeceperat Dominus in manu Moysi, novem tribubus et dimidiae tribui.
3 Duabus enim tribubus et dimidiae dederat Moyses trans Iordanem possessionem, absque Levitis, quibus nihil dedit inter fratres suos;
4 sed sunt filii Ioseph in duas divisi tribus, Manasse et Ephraim, nec acceperunt Levitae aliam in terra partem, nisi urbes ad habitandum et suburbana earum ad alenda iumenta et pecora sua.
5 Sicut praeceperat Dominus Moysi, ita fecerunt filii Israel et diviserunt terram.
6 Accesserunt itaque filii Iudae ad Iosue in Galgala, locutusque est ad eum Chaleb filius Iephonne Cenezaeus: "Nosti quid locutus sit Dominus ad Moysen hominem Dei de me et te in Cadesbarne.
7 Quadraginta annorum eram, quando me misit Moyses famulus Domini de Cadesbarne, ut considerarem terram; nuntiavique ei quod mihi verum videbatur.
8 Fratres autem mei, qui ascenderant mecum, dissolverunt cor populi, et nihilominus ego adimplevi, ut sequerer Dominum Deum meum.
9 Iuravitque Moyses in die illo dicens: "Terra, quam calcavit pes tuus, erit possessio tua et filiorum tuorum in aeternum, quia adimplevisti, ut sequereris Dominum Deum meum"
10 Concessit ergo Dominus vitam mihi, sicut pollicitus est, usque in praesentem diem. Quadraginta et quinque anni sunt ex quo locutus est Dominus verbum istud ad Moysen, quando ambulabat Israel per solitudinem; hodie octoginta quinque annorum sum,
11 sic valens ut eo valebam tempore, quando ad explorandum missus sum; illius in me temporis fortitudo usque hodie perseverat tam ad bellandum quam ad gradiendum.
12 Da ergo mihi montem istum, quem pollicitus est Dominus die illo, te quoque audiente quod Enacim ibi sunt et urbes magnae atque munitae; si forte sit Dominus mecum, et potuero delere eos, sicut promisit mihi"
13 Benedixitque ei Iosue et tradidit Hebron in possessionem;
14 atque ex eo fuit Hebron Chaleb filio Iephonne Cenezaeo usque in praesentem diem, quia adimplevit, ut sequeretur Dominum, Deum Israel.
15 Nomen Hebron antea vocabatur Cariatharbe (id est civitas Arbe), hominis maximi inter Enacim. Et terra cessavit a proeliis.
King James Version
1 And these are the countries which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar 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 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 inheritance among them.
4 For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save cities to dwell in, with their suburbs for their cattle and for their substance.
5 As the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did, and they divided the land.
6 ¶ Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadesh-barnea.
7 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh-barnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart.
8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.
9 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon 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, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel 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 my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.
12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.
13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.
14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day, because that he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.
15 And the name of Hebron before was Kirjath-arba; which Arba was a great man among the Anakims. And the land had rest from war.
