Book Of Josue 13:1-10

1 Josue was old, and far advanced in years, and the Lord said to him: Thou art grown old, and advanced in age, and there is a very large country left, which is not yet divided by lot: 2 To wit, all Galilee, Philistia, and all Gessuri. 3 From the troubled river, that watereth Egypt, unto the borders of Accaron northward: the land of Chanaan, which is divided among the lords of the Philistines, the Gazites, the Azotians, the Ascalonites, the Gethites, and the Accronites. 4 And on the south side are the Hevites, all the land of Chanaan, and Maara of the Sidonians as far as Apheca, and the borders of the Amorrhite, 5 And his confines. The country also of Libanus towards the east from Baalgad under mount Hermon to the entering into Emath.

1 "Josue was old, and far advanced in years"... He was then about one hundred and one years old.-- And there is a very large country left.

1 "Which is not yet divided by lot"... Not yet possessed by the children of Israel.


6 Of all that dwell in the mountains from Libanus, to the waters of Maserephoth, and all the Sidonians. I am he that will cut them off from before the face of the children of Israel. So let their land come in as a part of the inheritance of Israel, as I have commanded thee. 7 And now divide the land in possession to the nine tribes, and to the half tribe of Manasses, 8 With whom Ruben and Gad have possessed the land, which Moses the servant of the Lord delivered to them beyond the river Jordan, on the east side. 9 From Aroer, which is upon the bank of the torrent Amen, and in the midst of the valley and all the plains of Medaba, as far as Dibon: 10 And all the cities of Sehon, king of the Amorrhites, who reigned in Hesebon, unto the borders of the children of Ammon.

8 "With whom"... That is, with the other half of that same tribe.
