King James VersionJoshua15


1 This then was the lot of the tribe of the chil­dren of Ju­dah by their fam­i­lies; even to the bor­der of Edom the wilder­ness of Zin south­ward was the ut­ter­most part of the south coast. 2 And their south bor­der was from the shore of the salt sea, from the bay that looketh south­ward: 3 And it went out to the south side to Maale­hacrab­bim, and passed along to Zin, and as­cend­ed up on the south side unto Kadesh­barnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and fetched a com­pass to Karkaa: 4 From thence it passed to­ward Az­mon, and went out unto the riv­er of Egypt; and the go­ings out of that coast were at the sea: this shall be your south coast. 5 And the east bor­der was the salt sea, even unto the end of Jor­dan. And their bor­der in the north quar­ter was from the bay of the sea at the ut­ter­most part of Jor­dan: 6 And the bor­der went up to Beth­hogla, and passed along by the north of Betharabah; and the bor­der went up to the stone of Bo­han the son of Reuben: 7 And the bor­der went up to­ward De­bir from the val­ley of Achor, and so north­ward, look­ing to­ward Gil­gal, that is be­fore the go­ing up to Ad­um­mim, which is on the south side of the riv­er: and the bor­der passed to­ward the wa­ters of En­shemesh, and the go­ings out there­of were at En­ro­gel: 8 And the bor­der went up by the val­ley of the son of Hin­nom unto the south side of the Je­busite; the same is Jerusalem: and the bor­der went up to the top of the moun­tain that lieth be­fore the val­ley of Hin­nom west­ward, which is at the end of the val­ley of the gi­ants north­ward: 9 And the bor­der was drawn from the top of the hill unto the foun­tain of the wa­ter of Neph­toah, and went out to the cities of mount Ephron; and the bor­der was drawn to Baalah, which is Kir­jath­jearim: 10 And the bor­der com­passed from Baalah west­ward unto mount Seir, and passed along unto the side of mount Jearim, which is Chesa­lon, on the north side, and went down to Bethshemesh, and passed on to Tim­nah: 11 And the bor­der went out unto the side of Ekron north­ward: and the bor­der was drawn to Shi­cron, and passed along to mount Baalah, and went out unto Jab­neel; and the go­ings out of the bor­der were at the sea. 12 And the west bor­der was to the great sea, and the coast thereof. This is the coast of the chil­dren of Ju­dah round about ac­cord­ing to their fam­i­lies. 13 And unto Caleb the son of Je­phun­neh he gave a part among the chil­dren of Ju­dah, ac­cord­ing to the com­mand­ment of the LORD to Joshua, even the city of Arba the fa­ther of Anak, which c­i­ty is He­bron. 14 And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, She­shai, and Ahi­man, and Tal­mai, the chil­dren of Anak. 15 And he went up thence to the in­hab­i­tants of De­bir: and the name of De­bir be­fore was Kir­jath­sepher. 16 And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kir­jath­sepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daugh­ter to wife. 17 And Oth­niel the son of Ke­naz, the broth­er of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daugh­ter to wife. 18 And it came to pass, as she came un­to him, that she moved him to ask of her fa­ther a field: and she light­ed off her ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wouldest thou? 19 Who an­swered, Give me a bless­ing; for thou hast giv­en me a south land; give me also springs of wa­ter. And he gave her the up­per springs, and the nether springs. 20 This is the in­her­i­tance of the tribe of the chil­dren of Ju­dah ac­cord­ing to their fam­i­lies. 21 And the ut­ter­most cities of the tribe of the chil­dren of Ju­dah to­ward the coast of Edom south­ward were Kabzeel, and Ed­er, and Jagur, 22 And Ki­nah, and Di­mon­ah, and Adadah, 23 And Kedesh, and Ha­zor, and Ith­nan, 24 Ziph, and Telem, and Bealoth, 25 And Ha­zor, Ha­dat­tah, and Ke­rio­th, and Hezron, which is Ha­zor, 26 Amam, and She­ma, and Mo­ladah, 27 And Haz­argad­dah, and Hesh­mon, and Beth­palet, 28 And Haz­arshual, and Beer­she­ba, and Bizjoth­jah, 29 Baalah, and Iim, and Azem, 30 And El­to­lad, and Chesil, and Hormah, 31 And Zik­lag, and Mad­man­nah, and Sansan­nah, 32 And Lebaoth, and Shil­him, and Ain, and Rim­mon: all the cities are twen­ty and nine, with their vil­lages: 33 And in the val­ley, Es­h­taol, and Zore­ah, and Ash­nah, 34 And Zanoah, and En­gan­nim, Tap­puah, and Enam, 35 Jar­muth, and Adul­lam, So­coh, and Azekah, 36 And Sharaim, and Adithaim, and Ged­er­ah, and Gederothaim; four­teen cities with their vil­lages: 37 Zenan, and Hadashah, and Migdal­gad, 38 And Dilean, and Mizpeh, and Jok­theel, 39 Lachish, and Bozkath, and Eglon, 40 And Cab­bon, and Lah­mam, and Kith­lish, 41 And Gederoth, Bethdagon, and Naamah, and Makkedah; six­teen cities with their vil­lages: 42 Lib­nah, and Ether, and Ashan, 43 And Jiph­tah, and Ash­nah, and Nez­ib, 44 And Keilah, and Achz­ib, and Mare­shah; nine cities with their vil­lages: 45 Ekron, with her towns and her vil­lages: 46 From Ekron even unto the sea, all that lay near Ash­dod, with their vil­lages: 47 Ash­dod with her towns and her vil­lages, Gaza with her towns and her vil­lages, unto the riv­er of Egypt, and the great sea, and the bor­der thereof: 48 And in the moun­tains, Shamir, and Jat­tir, and So­coh, 49 And Dan­nah, and Kir­jath­san­nah, which is De­bir, 50 And Anab, and Es­hte­moh, and An­im, 51 And Goshen, and Holon, and Giloh; eleven cities with their vil­lages: 52 Arab, and Dumah, and Es­hean, 53 And Janum, and Beth­tap­puah, and Aphekah, 54 And Hum­tah, and Kir­jathar­ba, which is He­bron, and Zior; nine cities with their vil­lages: 55 Maon, Carmel, and Ziph, and Jut­tah, 56 And Jezreel, and Jokdeam, and Zanoah, 57 Cain, Gibeah, and Tim­nah; ten cities with their vil­lages: 58 Hal­hul, Bethzur, and Gedor, 59 And Maarath, and Bethan­oth, and El­tekon; six cities with their vil­lages: 60 Kir­jath­baal, which is Kir­jath­jearim, and Rab­bah; two cities with their vil­lages: 61 In the wilder­ness, Betharabah, Mid­din, and Se­cac­ah, 62 And Nib­shan, and the city of Salt, and En­ge­di; six cities with their vil­lages. 63 As for the Je­busites the in­hab­i­tants of Jerusalem, the chil­dren of Ju­dah could not drive them out: but the Je­busites dwell with the chil­dren of Ju­dah at Jerusalem unto this day.
