Joshua 15


Territory of Judah

Joshua 15:1
  Now the lot for the tribe of the sons of Judah according to their families reached the border of Edom, southward to the wilderness of Zin at the extreme south.
Joshua 15:2   Their south border was from the lower end of the Salt Sea, from the bay that turns to the south.
Joshua 15:3   Then it proceeded southward to the ascent of Akrabbim and continued to Zin, then went up by the south of Kadesh-barnea and continued to Hezron, and went up to Addar and turned about to Karka.
Joshua 15:4   It continued to Azmon and proceeded to the brook of Egypt, and the border ended at the sea. This shall be your south border.
Joshua 15:5   The east border was the Salt Sea, as far as the mouth of the Jordan. And the border of the north side was from the bay of the sea at the mouth of the Jordan.
Joshua 15:6   Then the border went up to Beth-hoglah, and continued on the north of Beth-arabah, and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben.
Joshua 15:7   The border went up to Debir from the valley of Achor, and turned northward toward Gilgal which is opposite the ascent of Adummim, which is on the south of the valley; and the border continued to the waters of En-shemesh and it ended at En-rogel.
Joshua 15:8   Then the border went up the valley of Ben-hinnom to the slope of the Jebusite on the south (that is, Jerusalem); and the border went up to the top of the mountain which is before the valley of Hinnom to the west, which is at the end of the valley of Rephaim toward the north.
Joshua 15:9   From the top of the mountain the border curved to the spring of the waters of Nephtoah and proceeded to the cities of Mount Ephron, then the border curved to Baalah (that is, Kiriath-jearim).
Joshua 15:10   The border turned about from Baalah westward to Mount Seir, and continued to the slope of Mount Jearim on the north (that is, Chesalon), and went down to Beth-shemesh and continued through Timnah.
Joshua 15:11   The border proceeded to the side of Ekron northward. Then the border curved to Shikkeron and continued to Mount Baalah and proceeded to Jabneel, and the border ended at the sea.
Joshua 15:12   The west border was at the Great Sea, even its coastline. This is the border around the sons of Judah according to their families.
Joshua 15:13   Now he gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the sons of Judah, according to the command of the LORD to Joshua, namely, Kiriath-arba, Arba being the father of Anak (that is, Hebron).
Joshua 15:14   Caleb drove out from there the three sons of Anak: Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the children of Anak.
Joshua 15:15   Then he went up from there against the inhabitants of Debir; now the name of Debir formerly was Kiriath-sepher.
Joshua 15:16   And Caleb said, "The one who attacks Kiriath-sepher and captures it, I will give him Achsah my daughter as a wife."
Joshua 15:17   Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, captured it; so he gave him Achsah his daughter as a wife.
Joshua 15:18   It came about that when she came to him, she persuaded him to ask her father for a field. So she alighted from the donkey, and Caleb said to her, "What do you want?"
Joshua 15:19   Then she said, "Give me a blessing; since you have given me the land of the Negev, give me also springs of water." So he gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.
Joshua 15:20   This is the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Judah according to their families.
