Joshua 18 (WEBP)

[1] The whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled themselves together at Shiloh, and set up the Tent of Meeting there. The land was subdued before them.
[2] Seven tribes remained among the children of Israel, which had not yet divided their inheritance.
[3] Joshua said to the children of Israel, “How long will you neglect to go in to possess the land, which Yahweh, the God of your fathers, has given you?
[4] Appoint for yourselves three men from each tribe. I will send them, and they shall arise, walk through the land, and describe it according to their inheritance; then they shall come to me.
[5] They shall divide it into seven portions. Judah shall live in his borders on the south, and the house of Joseph shall live in their borders on the north.
[6] You shall survey the land into seven parts, and bring the description here to me; and I will cast lots for you here before Yahweh our God.
[7] However, the Levites have no portion among you; for the priesthood of Yahweh is their inheritance. Gad, Reuben, and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance east of the Jordan, which Moses the servant of Yahweh gave them.”
[8] The men arose and went. Joshua commanded those who went to survey the land, saying, “Go walk through the land, survey it, and come again to me. I will cast lots for you here before Yahweh in Shiloh.”
[9] The men went and passed through the land, and surveyed it by cities into seven portions in a book. They came to Joshua to the camp at Shiloh.
[10] Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before Yahweh. There Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel according to their divisions.
[11] The lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families. The border of their lot went out between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.
[12] Their border on the north quarter was from the Jordan. The border went up to the side of Jericho on the north, and went up through the hill country westward. It ended at the wilderness of Beth Aven.
[13] The border passed along from there to Luz, to the side of Luz (also called Bethel), southward. The border went down to Ataroth Addar, by the mountain that lies on the south of Beth Horon the lower.
[14] The border extended, and turned around on the west quarter southward, from the mountain that lies before Beth Horon southward; and ended at Kiriath Baal (also called Kiriath Jearim), a city of the children of Judah. This was the west quarter.
[15] The south quarter was from the farthest part of Kiriath Jearim. The border went out westward, and went out to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah.
[16] The border went down to the farthest part of the mountain that lies before the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is in the valley of Rephaim northward. It went down to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of the Jebusite southward, and went down to En Rogel.
[17] It extended northward, went out at En Shemesh, and went out to Geliloth, which is opposite the ascent of Adummim. It went down to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben.
[18] It passed along to the side opposite the Arabah northward, and went down to the Arabah.
[19] The border passed along to the side of Beth Hoglah northward; and the border ended at the north bay of the Salt Sea, at the south end of the Jordan. This was the south border.
[20] The Jordan was its border on the east quarter. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the borders around it, according to their families.
[21] Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, Beth Hoglah, Emek Keziz,
[22] Beth Arabah, Zemaraim, Bethel,
[23] Avvim, Parah, Ophrah,
[24] Chephar Ammoni, Ophni, and Geba; twelve cities with their villages.
[25] Gibeon, Ramah, Beeroth,
[26] Mizpeh, Chephirah, Mozah,
[27] Rekem, Irpeel, Taralah,
[28] Zelah, Eleph, the Jebusite (also called Jerusalem), Gibeath, and Kiriath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.

Joshua 18 (KJVS)

[1] And the whole congregation H5712 of the children H1121 of Israel H3478 assembled together H6950 (8735) at Shiloh H7887, and set up H7931 (8686) the tabernacle H168 of the congregation H4150 there. And the land H776 was subdued H3533 (8738) before H6440 them.
[2] And there remained H3498 (8735) among the children H1121 of Israel H3478 seven H7651 tribes H7626, which had not yet received H2505 (8804) their inheritance H5159.
[3] And Joshua H3091 said H559 (8799) unto the children H1121 of Israel H3478, How long [are] ye slack H7503 (8693) to go H935 (8800) to possess H3423 (8800) the land H776, which the LORD H3068 God H430 of your fathers H1 hath given H5414 (8804) you?
[4] Give out H3051 (8798) from among you three H7969 men H582 for [each] tribe H7626: and I will send H7971 (8799) them, and they shall rise H6965 (8799), and go H1980 (8691) through the land H776, and describe H3789 (8799) it according H6310 to the inheritance H5159 of them; and they shall come H935 (8799) [again] to me.
[5] And they shall divide H2505 (8694) it into seven H7651 parts H2506: Judah H3063 shall abide H5975 (8799) in their coast H1366 on the south H5045, and the house H1004 of Joseph H3130 shall abide H5975 (8799) in their coasts H1366 on the north H6828.
[6] Ye shall therefore describe H3789 (8799) the land H776 [into] seven H7651 parts H2506, and bring H935 (8689) [the description] hither to me, that I may cast H3384 (8804) lots H1486 for you here before H6440 the LORD H3068 our God H430.
[7] But the Levites H3881 have no part H2506 among H7130 you; for the priesthood H3550 of the LORD H3068 [is] their inheritance H5159: and Gad H1410, and Reuben H7205, and half H2677 the tribe H7626 of Manasseh H4519, have received H3947 (8804) their inheritance H5159 beyond H5676 Jordan H3383 on the east H4217, which Moses H4872 the servant H5650 of the LORD H3068 gave H5414 (8804) them.
[8] And the men H582 arose H6965 (8799), and went away H3212 (8799): and Joshua H3091 charged H6680 (8762) them that went H1980 (8802) to describe H3789 (8800) the land H776, saying H559 (8800), Go H3212 (8798) and walk H1980 (8690) through the land H776, and describe H3789 (8798) it, and come again H7725 (8798) to me, that I may here cast H7993 (8686) lots H1486 for you before H6440 the LORD H3068 in Shiloh H7887.
[9] And the men H582 went H3212 (8799) and passed through H5674 (8799) the land H776, and described H3789 (8799) it by cities H5892 into seven H7651 parts H2506 in a book H5612, and came H935 (8799) [again] to Joshua H3091 to the host H4264 at Shiloh H7887.
[10] And Joshua H3091 cast H7993 (8686) lots H1486 for them in Shiloh H7887 before H6440 the LORD H3068: and there Joshua H3091 divided H2505 (8762) the land H776 unto the children H1121 of Israel H3478 according to their divisions H4256.
[11] And the lot H1486 of the tribe H4294 of the children H1121 of Benjamin H1144 came up H5927 (8799) according to their families H4940: and the coast H1366 of their lot H1486 came forth H3318 (8799) between the children H1121 of Judah H3063 and the children H1121 of Joseph H3130.
[12] And their border H1366 on the north H6828 side H6285 was from Jordan H3383; and the border H1366 went up H5927 (8804) to the side H3802 of Jericho H3405 on the north H6828 side, and went up H5927 (8804) through the mountains H2022 westward H3220; and the goings out H8444 thereof were at the wilderness H4057 of Bethaven H1007.
[13] And the border H1366 went over H5674 (8804) from thence toward Luz H3870, to the side H3802 of Luz H3870, which [is] Bethel H1008, southward H5045; and the border H1366 descended H3381 (8804) to Atarothadar H5853, near the hill H2022 that [lieth] on the south side H5045 of the nether H8481 Bethhoron H1032.
[14] And the border H1366 was drawn H8388 (8804) [thence], and compassed H5437 (8738) the corner H6285 of the sea H3220 southward H5045, from the hill H2022 that [lieth] before H6440 Bethhoron H1032 southward H5045; and the goings out H8444 thereof were at Kirjathbaal H7154, which [is] Kirjathjearim H7157, a city H5892 of the children H1121 of Judah H3063: this [was] the west H3220 quarter H6285.
[15] And the south H5045 quarter H6285 [was] from the end H7097 of Kirjathjearim H7157, and the border H1366 went out H3318 (8804) on the west H3220, and went out H3318 (8804) to the well H4599 of waters H4325 of Nephtoah H5318:
[16] And the border H1366 came down H3381 (8804) to the end H7097 of the mountain H2022 that [lieth] before H6440 the valley H1516 of the son H1121 of Hinnom H2011, [and] which [is] in the valley H6010 of the giants H7497 on the north H6828, and descended H3381 (8804) to the valley H1516 of Hinnom H2011, to the side H3802 of Jebusi H2983 on the south H5045, and descended H3381 (8804) to Enrogel H5883,
[17] And was drawn H8388 (8804) from the north H6828, and went forth H3318 (8804) to Enshemesh H5885, and went forth H3318 (8804) toward Geliloth H1553, which [is] over against H5227 the going up H4608 of Adummim H131, and descended H3381 (8804) to the stone H68 of Bohan H932 the son H1121 of Reuben H7205,
[18] And passed along H5674 (8804) toward the side H3802 over against H4136 Arabah H6160 northward H6828, and went down H3381 (8804) unto Arabah H6160:
[19] And the border H1366 passed along H5674 (8804) to the side H3802 of Bethhoglah H1031 northward H6828: and the outgoings H8444 of the border H1366 were at the north H6828 bay H3956 of the salt H4417 sea H3220 at the south H5045 end H7097 of Jordan H3383: this [was] the south H5045 coast H1366.
[20] And Jordan H3383 was the border H1379 (8799) of it on the east H6924 side H6285. This [was] the inheritance H5159 of the children H1121 of Benjamin H1144, by the coasts H1367 thereof round about H5439, according to their families H4940.
[21] Now the cities H5892 of the tribe H4294 of the children H1121 of Benjamin H1144 according to their families H4940 were Jericho H3405, and Bethhoglah H1031, and the valley H6010 of Keziz H7104,
[22] And Betharabah H1026, and Zemaraim H6787, and Bethel H1008,
[23] And Avim H5761, and Parah H6511, and Ophrah H6084,
[24] And Chepharhaammonai H3726, and Ophni H6078, and Gaba H1387; twelve H8147 H6240 cities H5892 with their villages H2691:
[25] Gibeon H1391, and Ramah H7414, and Beeroth H881,
[26] And Mizpeh H4708, and Chephirah H3716, and Mozah H4681,

Joshua 18 (YLT)

[1] And all the company of the sons of Israel are assembled at Shiloh, and they cause the tent of meeting to tabernacle there, and the land hath been subdued before them.
[2] And there are left among the sons of Israel who have not shared their inheritance, seven tribes,
[3] and Joshua saith unto the sons of Israel, ‘Till when are ye remiss to go in to possess the land which He hath given to you, Jehovah, God of your fathers?
[4] Give for you three men for a tribe, and I send them, and they rise and go up and down through the land, and describe it according to their inheritance, and come in unto me,
[5] and they have divided it into seven portions-Judah doth stay by its border on the south, and the house of Joseph do stay by their border on the north-
[6] and ye describe the land in seven portions, and have brought it in unto me hither, and I have cast for you a lot here before Jehovah our God;
[7] for there is no portion to the Levites in your midst, for the priesthood of Jehovah is their inheritance, and Gad, and Reuben, and the half of the tribe of Manasseh received their inheritance beyond the Jordan eastward, which Moses servant of Jehovah gave to them.’
[8] And the men rise and go; and Joshua commandeth those who are going to describe the land, saying, ‘Go, and walk up and down through the land, and describe it, and turn back unto me, and here I cast for you a lot before Jehovah in Shiloh.’
[9] And the men go, and pass over through the land, and describe it by cities, in seven portions, on a book, and they come in unto Joshua, unto the camp, at Shiloh.
[10] And Joshua casteth for them a lot in Shiloh before Jehovah, and there Joshua apportioneth the land to the sons of Israel, according to their divisions.
[11] And a lot goeth up for the tribe of the sons of Benjamin, for their families; and the border of their lot goeth out between the sons of Judah and the sons of Joseph.
[12] And the border is to them at the north side from the Jordan, and the border hath gone up unto the side of Jericho on the north, and gone up through the hill-country westward, and its outgoings have been at the wilderness of Beth-Aven;
[13] and the border hath gone over thence to Luz, unto the side of Luz (it is Beth-El) southward, and the border hath gone down to Atroth-Addar, by the hill that is on the south of the lower Beth-Horon;
[14] and the border hath been marked out, and hath gone round to the corner of the sea southward, from the hill which is at the front of Beth-Horon southward, and its outgoings have been unto Kirjath-Baal (it is Kirjath-Jearim), a city of the sons of Judah: this is the west quarter.
[15] And the south quarter is from the end of Kirjath-Jearim, and the border hath gone out westward, and gone out unto the fountain of the waters of Nephtoah;
[16] and the border hath come down unto the extremity of the hill which is on the front of the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is in the valley of the Rephaim northward, and hath gone down the valley of Hinnom unto the side of Jebusi southward, and gone down to En-Rogel,
[17] and hath been marked out on the north, and gone out to En-Shemesh, and gone out unto Geliloth, which is over-against the ascent of Adummim, and gone down to the stone of Bohan son of Reuben,
[18] and passed over unto the side over-against Arabah northward, and gone down to Arabah;
[19] and the border hath passed over unto the side of Beth-Hoglah northward, and the outgoings of the border have been unto the north bay of the salt sea, unto the south extremity of the Jordan; this is the south border;
[20] and the Jordan doth border it at the east quarter; this is the inheritance of the sons of Benjamin, by its borders round about, for their families.
[21] And the cities for the tribe of the sons of Benjamin, for their families, have been Jericho, and Beth-Hoglah, and the valley of Keziz,
[22] and Beth-Arabah, Zemaraim, and Beth-El,
[23] and Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,
[24] and Chephar-Haammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities and their villages.
[25] Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,
[26] and Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,
[27] and Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,
[28] and Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi (it is Jerusalem), Gibeath, Kirjath: fourteen cities and their villages. This is the inheritance of the sons of Benjamin, for their families.
