Joshua 15 (WEBP)

[1] The lot for the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families was to the border of Edom, even to the wilderness of Zin southward, at the uttermost part of the south.
[2] Their south border was from the uttermost part of the Salt Sea, from the bay that looks southward;
[3] and it went out southward of the ascent of Akrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and went up by the south of Kadesh Barnea, and passed along by Hezron, went up to Addar, and turned toward Karka;
[4] and it passed along to Azmon, went out at the brook of Egypt; and the border ended at the sea. This shall be your south border.
[5] The east border was the Salt Sea, even to the end of the Jordan. The border of the north quarter was from the bay of the sea at the end of the Jordan.
[6] The border went up to Beth Hoglah, and passed along by the north of Beth Arabah; and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben.
[7] The border went up to Debir from the valley of Achor, and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that faces the ascent of Adummim, which is on the south side of the river. The border passed along to the waters of En Shemesh, and ended at En Rogel.
[8] The border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom to the side of the Jebusite (also called Jerusalem) southward; and the border went up to the top of the mountain that lies before the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the farthest part of the valley of Rephaim northward.
[9] The border extended from the top of the mountain to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of Mount Ephron; and the border extended to Baalah (also called Kiriath Jearim);
[10] and the border turned about from Baalah westward to Mount Seir, and passed along to the side of Mount Jearim (also called Chesalon) on the north, and went down to Beth Shemesh, and passed along by Timnah;
[11] and the border went out to the side of Ekron northward; and the border extended to Shikkeron, and passed along to Mount Baalah, and went out at Jabneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea.
[12] The west border was to the shore of the great sea. This is the border of the children of Judah according to their families.
[13] He gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of Yahweh to Joshua, even Kiriath Arba, named after the father of Anak (also called Hebron).
[14] Caleb drove out the three sons of Anak: Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.
[15] He went up against the inhabitants of Debir: now the name of Debir before was Kiriath Sepher.
[16] Caleb said, “He who strikes Kiriath Sepher, and takes it, to him I will give Achsah my daughter as wife.”
[17] Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter as wife.
[18] When she came, she had him ask her father for a field. She got off her donkey, and Caleb said, “What do you want?”
[19] She said, “Give me a blessing. Because you have set me in the land of the South, give me also springs of water.” So he gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.
[20] This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.

[46] from Ekron even to the sea, all that were by the side of Ashdod, with their villages.
[47] Ashdod, its towns and its villages; Gaza, its towns and its villages; to the brook of Egypt, and the great sea with its coastline.

[1] [This] then was the lot H1486 of the tribe H4294 of the children H1121 of Judah H3063 by their families H4940; [even] to the border H1366 of Edom H123 the wilderness H4057 of Zin H6790 southward H5045 [was] the uttermost part H7097 of the south coast H8486.
[2] And their south H5045 border H1366 was from the shore H7097 of the salt H4417 sea H3220, from the bay H3956 that looketh H6437 (8802) southward H5045:
[3] And it went out H3318 (8804) to the south side H5045 to Maalehacrabbim H4610, and passed H5674 (8804) along to Zin H6790, and ascended up H5927 (8804) on the south side H5045 unto Kadeshbarnea H6947, and passed H5674 (8804) along to Hezron H2696, and went up H5927 (8804) to Adar H146, and fetched a compass H5437 (8738) to Karkaa H7173:
[4] [From thence] it passed H5674 (8804) toward Azmon H6111, and went out H3318 (8804) unto the river H5158 of Egypt H4714; and the goings out H8444 of that coast H1366 were at the sea H3220: this shall be your south H5045 coast H1366.
[5] And the east H6924 border H1366 [was] the salt H4417 sea H3220, [even] unto the end H7097 of Jordan H3383. And [their] border H1366 in the north H6828 quarter H6285 [was] from the bay H3956 of the sea H3220 at the uttermost part H7097 of Jordan H3383:
[6] And the border H1366 went up H5927 (8804) to Bethhogla H1031, and passed H5674 (8804) along by the north H6828 of Betharabah H1026; and the border H1366 went up H5927 (8804) to the stone H68 of Bohan H932 the son H1121 of Reuben H7205:
[7] And the border H1366 went up H5927 (8804) toward Debir H1688 from the valley H6010 of Achor H5911, and so northward H6828, looking H6437 (8802) toward Gilgal H1537, that [is] before H5227 the going up H4608 to Adummim H131, which [is] on the south side H5045 of the river H5158: and the border H1366 passed H5674 (8804) toward the waters H4325 of Enshemesh H5885, and the goings out H8444 thereof were at Enrogel H5883:
[8] And the border H1366 went up H5927 (8804) by the valley H1516 of the son H1121 of Hinnom H2011 unto the south H5045 side H3802 of the Jebusite H2983; the same [is] Jerusalem H3389: and the border H1366 went up H5927 (8804) to the top H7218 of the mountain H2022 that [lieth] before H6440 the valley H1516 of Hinnom H2011 westward H3220, which [is] at the end H7097 of the valley H6010 of the giants H7497 northward H6828:
[9] And the border H1366 was drawn H8388 (8804) from the top H7218 of the hill H2022 unto the fountain H4599 of the water H4325 of Nephtoah H5318, and went out H3318 (8804) to the cities H5892 of mount H2022 Ephron H6085; and the border H1366 was drawn H8388 (8804) to Baalah H1173, which [is] Kirjathjearim H7157:
[10] And the border H1366 compassed H5437 (8738) from Baalah H1173 westward H3220 unto mount H2022 Seir H8165, and passed H5674 (8804) along unto the side H3802 of mount H2022 Jearim H3297, which [is] Chesalon H3693, on the north side H6828, and went down H3381 (8804) to Bethshemesh H1053, and passed on H5674 (8804) to Timnah H8553:
[11] And the border H1366 went out H3318 (8804) unto the side H3802 of Ekron H6138 northward H6828: and the border H1366 was drawn H8388 (8804) to Shicron H7942, and passed along H5674 (8804) to mount H2022 Baalah H1173, and went out H3318 (8804) unto Jabneel H2995; and the goings out H8444 of the border H1366 were at the sea H3220.
[12] And the west H3220 border H1366 [was] to the great H1419 sea H3220, and the coast H1366 [thereof]. This [is] the coast H1366 of the children H1121 of Judah H3063 round about H5439 according to their families H4940.
[13] And unto Caleb H3612 the son H1121 of Jephunneh H3312 he gave H5414 (8804) a part H2506 among H8432 the children H1121 of Judah H3063, according H413 to the commandment H6310 of the LORD H3068 to Joshua H3091, [even] the city H7151 of Arba H704 (8677) H7153 the father H1 of Anak H6061, which [city is] Hebron H2275.
[14] And Caleb H3612 drove H3423 (8686) thence the three H7969 sons H1121 of Anak H6061, Sheshai H8344, and Ahiman H289, and Talmai H8526, the children H3211 of Anak H6061.
[15] And he went up H5927 (8799) thence to the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Debir H1688: and the name H8034 of Debir H1688 before H6440 [was] Kirjathsepher H7158.
[16] And Caleb H3612 said H559 (8799), He that smiteth H5221 (8686) Kirjathsepher H7158, and taketh H3920 (8804) it, to him will I give H5414 (8804) Achsah H5915 my daughter H1323 to wife H802.
[17] And Othniel H6274 the son H1121 of Kenaz H7073, the brother H251 of Caleb H3612, took H3920 (8799) it: and he gave H5414 (8799) him Achsah H5915 his daughter H1323 to wife H802.
[18] And it came to pass, as she came H935 (8800) [unto him], that she moved H5496 (8686) him to ask H7592 (8800) of her father H1 a field H7704: and she lighted off H6795 (8799) [her] ass H2543; and Caleb H3612 said H559 (8799) unto her, What wouldest thou?
[19] Who answered H559 (8799), Give H5414 (8798) me a blessing H1293; for thou hast given H5414 (8804) me a south H5045 land H776; give H5414 (8804) me also springs H1543 of water H4325. And he gave H5414 (8799) her the upper H5942 springs H1543, and the nether H8482 springs H1543.
[20] This [is] the inheritance H5159 of the tribe H4294 of the children H1121 of Judah H3063 according to their families H4940.
