21 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Sichem one of the cities of refuge, with the suburbs thereof in mount Ephraim, and Cater, 22 And Cibsaim, and Beth-horon, with their suburbs, four cities. 23 And of the tribe of Dan, Eltheco and Gabathon, 24 And Aialon and Gethremmon, with their suburbs, four cities. 25 And of the half tribe of Manasses, Thanac and Gethremmon, with their suburbs, two cities.
26 All the cities were ten, with their suburbs, which were given to the children of Caath, of the inferior degree. 27 To the children of Gerson also of the race of Levi out of the half tribe of Manasses, Gaulon in Basan, one of the cities of refuge, and Bosra, with their suburbs, two cities. 28 And of the tribe of Issachar, Cesion, and Dabereth, 29 And Jaramoth, and Engannim, with their suburbs, four cities. 30 And of the tribe of Aser, Masal and Abdon,
31 And Helcath, and Rohob, with their suburbs, four cities. 32 Of the tribe also of Nephtali, Cedes in Galilee, one of the cities of refuge: and Hammoth Dor, and Carthan, with their suburbs, three cities. 33 All the cities of the families of Gerson, were thirteen, with their suburbs. 34 And to the children of Merari, Levites of the inferior degree, by their families were given of the tribe of Zabulon, Jecnam and Cartha, 35 And Damna and Naalol, four cities with their suburbs;
36 Of the tribe of Ruben beyond the Jordan over against Jericho, Bosor in the wilderness, one of the cities of refuge, Miser and Jaser and Jethson and Mephaath, four cities with their suburbs. 37 Of the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Galaad, one of the cities of refuge, and Manaim and Hesebon and Jaser, four cities with their suburbs. 38 All the cities of the children of Merari by their families and kindreds, were twelve. 39 So all the cities of the Levites within the possession of the children of Israel were forty-eight, 40 With their suburbs, each distributed by the families.
36 "Four cities"... There are no more, though there be five names: for Misor is the same city as Bosor, which is to be observed in some other places, where the number of names exceeds the number of cities.
41 And the Lord God gave to Israel all the land that he had sworn to give to their fathers: and they possessed it and dwelt in it. 42 And he gave them peace from all nations round about: and none of their enemies durst stand against them, but were brought under their dominion. 43 Not so much as one word, which he had promised to perform unto them, was made void, but all came to pass.
