Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one The whole congregation of the sons of Israel gathered in Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there, for the land was subjugated by them.

2 Of the sons of Israel, there remained seven tribes who had not yet received their inheritance.
3 And Jesus said to the sons of Israel: How long will you be neglecting to go [and] inherit the land that the Lord God of your fathers gave you?
4 give yourself three people from the knee; I will send them, and they will get up and walk across the earth and describe it, as it is necessary to divide them into divisions, and they will come to me;
5 let them divide it into seven destinies; Let Judah remain in his border in the south, and let the house of Joseph remain in his border in the north;
6 and you will write down the land in seven inheritances and introduce me here: I will cast a lot for you here before the face of the Lord our God;
7 but the Levites have no part between you, for the priesthood of the Lord is their inheritance; But the bastard, Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh received their inheritance beyond the Jordan to the east, which Moses the servant of the Lord gave them.
8 These people got up and went. Jesus, those who went to describe the earth, gave such an order: go, go around the earth, describe it and come back to me; and here I will cast lots for you before the Lord, in Shiloh.
nine They went, went through the earth, and described it, in its cities, in seven destinies, in a book, and came to Jesus in the camp, in Shiloh.
10 Jesus cast lots for them in Shiloh before the Lord, and there Jesus divided the land to the sons of Israel according to their plots.

eleven The [first] lot went out to the tribe of the sons of Benjamin according to their families. Their border by lot went between the sons of Judah and between the sons of Joseph;
12 their border on the north side begins at the Jordan, and this border passes near Jericho from the north, and ascends a mountain to the west, and ends in the desert of Bethaven;
thirteen from there the border goes to Luz, to the south side of Luz, otherwise Bethel, and the border goes down to Ataroth-Adar, to the mountain, which is on the lower south side of Beth-Oron;
14 then the limit turns and leans toward the sea side south of the mountain, which in the south is before Beth-Oron, and ends at Kiriath-Baal, otherwise Kiriath-Jarim, the city of the sons of Judah. This is the west side.
fifteen On the south side of Kiriath-jarim there is a limit to the sea and reaches the source of the waters of Neftochah;
sixteen then the limit descends to the end of the mountain, which is before the valley of the son of Ennomov, in the valley of Rephaim, to the north, and descends the valley of Ennom to the south side of Jebus, and goes to En-Rogel;
17 then he turns from the north and goes to En-Shemesh, and goes to Gelilof, who is against the heights of Adummim, and descends to the stone of Bogan, son of Reuben;
eighteen then it passes near the plain to the north and descends to the plain;
nineteen from here passes the limit near Beth-Khogly to the north, and the limit ends at the northern bay of the Salt Sea, at the southern end of the Jordan. Here is the southern limit. On the east side, Jordan serves as the limit.
twenty This is the inheritance of the sons of Benjamin, with its borders on all sides, according to their families.
21 Cities the tribe of the sons of Benjamin according to their families belonged to these: Jericho, Beth-Hogla, and Emek-Kecitz,
22 Beth-Arava, Tsemaraim and Bethel,
23 Avvim, Farah and Ofra,
24 Kefar Ammonai, Afni and Geba: twelve cities with their villages.
25 Gibeon, Rama and Beroth,
26 Mitzfe, Kefir and Mots,
27 Rekem, Irpheil and Farala,
28 Zela, Eleph and Jebus, aka Jerusalem, Giveath, and Cyriath: fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the sons of Benjamin according to their families.
