1 Congregatique sunt omnes filii Israel in Silo ibique fixe runt tabernaculum conventus, et fuit eis terra subiecta.
2 Remanserant autem filiorum Israel septem tribus, quae necdum acceperant possessiones suas.
3 Ad quos Iosue ait: "Usquequo marcetis ignavia et non intratis ad possidendam terram, quam Dominus, Deus patrum vestrorum,dedit vobis?
4 Eligite de singulis tribubus ternos viros, ut mittam eos, et surgant atque circumeant terram et describant eam iuxta numerum uniuscuiusque multitudinis referantque ad me, quod descripserint.
5 Dividite vobis terram in septem partes: Iudas sit in terminis suis in australi plaga, et domus Ioseph in aquilone.
6 Reliquam terram in septem partes describite; et huc afferetis ad me, ut coram Domino Deo nostro mittam vobis hic sortem,
7 quia non est inter vos pars Levitarum, sed sacerdotium Domini est eorum hereditas. Gad autem et Ruben et dimidia tribus Manasse iam acceperant possessiones suas trans Iordanem ad orientalem plagam, quas dedit eis Moyses famulus Domini"
8 Cumque surrexissent viri, ut pergerent ad describendam terram, praecepit eis Iosue dicens: "Circuite terram et describite eam ac revertimini ad me, ut hic coram Domino in Silo mittam vobis sortem"
9 Itaque perrexerunt et lustrantes terram secundum urbes in septem partes diviserunt scribentes in volumine; reversique sunt ad Iosue in castra Silo.
10 Qui misit eis sortes coram Domino in Silo divisitque ibi terram filiis Israel secundum partes eorum.
11 Et ascendit sors prima filiorum Beniamin per familias suas, ut possiderent terram inter filios Iudae et filios Ioseph.
12 Fuitque terminus eorum contra aquilonem a Iordane pergens iuxta latus Iericho septentrionalis plagae et inde contra occidentem ad montana conscendens et perveniens in solitudinem Bethaven;
13 atque pertransiens iuxta Luzam ad meridiem "ipsa est Bethel "descendit in Atarothaddar in montem, qui est ad meridiem Bethoron inferioris,
14 et inclinatur vergens contra mare ad meridiem a monte, qui respicit Bethoron contra meridiem; suntque exitus eius in Cariathbaal, quae vocatur et Cariathiarim, urbem filiorum Iudae. Haec est plaga ad occidentem.
15 In plaga autem ad meridiem, ex parte Cariathiarim egreditur terminus in Gasim et pervenit usque ad fontem aquarum Nephtoa
16 descenditque in extremam partem montis, qui respicit vallem Benennom et est contra septentrionalem plagam in extrema parte vallis Raphaim; descenditque in vallem Ennom, iuxta latus Iebusaei ad austrum, et pervenit ad fontem Rogel
17 transiens ad aquilonem et egrediens ad Ensemes (id est fontem Solis). Et pertransit usque ad Galiloth (hi sunt circuli), qui sunt e regione ascensus Adommim, descenditque ad Abenboen (id est lapidem Boen) filii Ruben
18 et pertransit ex latere aquilonis Betharaba descenditque in Arabam.
19 Et praetergreditur contra aquilonem Bethagla; suntque exitus eius contra linguam maris Salsissimi ab aquilone in fine Iordanis. Haec est australis plaga.
20 Iordanis autem est terminus ab oriente. Haec est possessio filiorum Beniamin per terminos suos in circuitu secundum familias suas.
21 Fueruntque civitates eius: Iericho et Bethagla et Ameccasis
22 et Betharaba et Semaraim et Bethel
23 et Avim et Phara et Ophra,
24 Capharemona et Ophni et Gabaa: civitates duodecim et villae earum.
25 Gabaon et Rama et Beroth
26 et Maspha et Cephira et Mosa
27 et Recem, Iaraphel et Tharala
28 et Sela, Eleph et Iebus, quae est Ierusalem, Gabaath et Cariath: civitates quattuordecim et villae earum. Haec est possessio filiorum Beniamin iuxta familias suas.
King James Version
1 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.
2 And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance.
3 And Joshua said unto 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?
4 Give out 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.
5 And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in their coasts on the north.
6 Ye shall therefore describe the land into seven parts, and bring the description hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.
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.
8 ¶ And the men arose, and went away: 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.
9 And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came again to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.
10 ¶ And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel according to their divisions.
11 ¶ And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.
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 goings out thereof were at the wilderness of Beth-aven.
13 And the border went over from thence toward 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.
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 goings out thereof were at Kirjath-baal, which is Kirjath-jearim, a city of the children of Judah: this was the west quarter.
15 And the south quarter was from the end of Kirjath-jearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of waters of Nephtoah:
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,
17 And was drawn from the north, and went forth to En-shemesh, and went forth toward Geliloth, which is over against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,
18 And passed along toward the side over against Arabah northward, and went down unto Arabah:
19 And the border passed along to the side of Beth-hoglah northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this was the south coast.
20 And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round about, according to their families.
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,
22 And Beth-arabah, and Zemaraim, and Beth-el,
23 And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,
24 And Chephar-haammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with their villages:
25 Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,
26 And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,
27 And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,
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.
