Joshua 18


1  And the whole3605 congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel3478 assembled together6950 at Shiloh,7887 and set up7931 853 the tabernacle168 of the congregation4150 there.8033 And the land776 was subdued3533 before6440 them.

2  And there remained3498 among the children1121 of Israel3478 seven7651 tribes,7626 which834 had not3808 yet received2505 853 their inheritance.5159

3  And Joshua3091 said559 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 How long5704 575 are ye859 slack7503 to go935 to possess3423 853 the land,776 which834 the LORD3068 God430 of your fathers1 hath given5414 you?

4  Give3051 out from among you three7969 men376 for each tribe:7626 and I will send7971 them, and they shall rise,6965 and go1980 through the land,776 and describe3789 it according6310 to the inheritance5159 of them; and they shall come935 again to413 me.

5  And they shall divide2505 it into seven7651 parts:2506 Judah3063 shall abide5975 in5921 their coast1366 on the south,4480 5045 and the house1004 of Joseph3130 shall abide5975 in5921 their coasts1366 on the north.4480 6828

6  Ye859 shall therefore describe3789 853 the land776 into seven7651 parts,2506 and bring935 the description hither2008 to413 me, that I may cast3384 lots1486 for you here6311 before6440 the LORD3068 our God.430

7  But3588 the Levites3881 have no369 part2506 among7130 you; for3588 the priesthood3550 of the LORD3068 is their inheritance:5159 and Gad,1410 and Reuben,7205 and half2677 the tribe7626 of Manasseh,4519 have received3947 their inheritance5159 beyond4480 5676 Jordan3383 on the east,4217 which834 Moses4872 the servant5650 of the LORD3068 gave5414 them.

8  And the men376 arose,6965 and went away:1980 and Joshua3091 charged6680 853 them that went1980 to describe3789 853 the land,776 saying,559 Go1980 and walk1980 through the land,776 and describe3789 it, and come again7725 to413 me, that I may here6311 cast7993 lots1486 for you before6440 the LORD3068 in Shiloh.7887

9  And the men376 went1980 and passed through5674 the land,776 and described3789 it by cities5892 into seven7651 parts2506 in5921 a book,5612 and came935 again to413 Joshua3091 to413 the host4264 at Shiloh.7887

10  And Joshua3091 cast7993 lots1486 for them in Shiloh7887 before6440 the LORD:3068 and there8033 Joshua3091 divided2505 853 the land776 unto the children1121 of Israel3478 according to their divisions.4256

11  And the lot1486 of the tribe4294 of the children1121 of Benjamin1144 came up5927 according to their families:4940 and the coast1366 of their lot1486 came forth3318 between996 the children1121 of Judah3063 and the children1121 of Joseph.3130

13  And the border1366 went over5674 from thence4480 8033 toward Luz,3870 to413 the side3802 of Luz,3870 which1931 is Bethel,1008 southward;5045 and the border1366 descended3381 to Ataroth-adar,5853 near5921 the hill2022 that834 lieth on the south side4480 5045 of the nether8481 Beth-horon.1032

14  And the border1366 was drawn8388 thence, and compassed5437 the corner6285 of the sea3220 southward,5045 from4480 the hill2022 that834 lieth before592 6440 Beth-horon1032 southward;5045 and the goings out8444 thereof were1961 at413 Kirjath-baal,7154 which1931 is Kirjath-jearim,7157 a city5892 of the children1121 of Judah:3063 this2063 was the west3220 quarter.6285

15  And the south5045 quarter6285 was from the end4480 7097 of Kirjath-jearim,7157 and the border1366 went out3318 on the west,3220 and went out3318 to413 the well4599 of waters4325 of Nephtoah.5318

16  And the border1366 came down3381 to413 the end7097 of the mountain2022 that834 lieth before5921 6440 the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 and which834 is in the valley6010 of the giants7497 on the north,6828 and descended3381 to the valley1516 of Hinnom,2011 to413 the side3802 of Jebusi2983 on the south,5045 and descended3381 to En-rogel,5883

17  And was drawn8388 from the north,4480 6828 and went forth3318 to En-shemesh,5885 and went forth3318 toward413 Geliloth,1553 which834 is over against5227 the going up4608 of Adummim,131 and descended3381 to the stone68 of Bohan932 the son1121 of Reuben,7205

18  And passed5674 along toward413 the side3802 over against4136 Arabah6160 northward,6828 and went down3381 unto Arabah:6160

19  And the border1366 passed along5674 to413 the side3802 of Beth-hoglah1031 northward:6828 and the outgoings8444 of the border1366 were1961 at413 the north6828 bay3956 of the salt4417 sea3220 at413 the south5045 end7097 of Jordan:3383 this2088 was the south5045 coast.1366

20  And Jordan3383 was the border1379 of it on the east6924 side.6285 This2063 was the inheritance5159 of the children1121 of Benjamin,1144 by the coasts1367 thereof round about,5439 according to their families.4940

1 καὶ ἐξεκκλησιάσθη πᾶσα συναγωγὴ υἱῶν Ισραηλ εἰς Σηλω καὶ ἔπηξαν ἐκεῖ τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ ἡ γῆ ἐκρατήθη ὑπ᾽ αὐτῶν

2 καὶ κατελείφθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ οἳ οὐκ ἐκληρονόμησαν ἑπτὰ φυλαί

3 καὶ εἶπεν Ἰησοῦς τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ἕως τίνος ἐκλυθήσεσθε κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν ἣν ἔδωκεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν

4 δότε ἐξ ὑμῶν τρεῖς ἄνδρας ἐκ φυλῆς καὶ ἀναστάντες διελθέτωσαν τὴν γῆν καὶ διαγραψάτωσαν αὐτὴν ἐναντίον μου καθὰ δεήσει διελεῖν αὐτήν καὶ ἤλθοσαν πρὸς αὐτόν

5 καὶ διεῖλεν αὐτοῖς ἑπτὰ μερίδας Ιουδας στήσεται αὐτοῖς ὅριον ἀπὸ λιβός καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ιωσηφ στήσονται αὐτοῖς ἀπὸ βορρᾶ

6 ὑμεῖς δὲ μερίσατε τὴν γῆν ἑπτὰ μερίδας καὶ ἐνέγκατε πρός με ὧδε καὶ ἐξοίσω ὑμῖν κλῆρον ἔναντι κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν

7 οὐ γάρ ἐστιν μερὶς τοῖς υἱοῖς Λευι ἐν ὑμῖν ἱερατεία γὰρ κυρίου μερὶς αὐτοῦ καὶ Γαδ καὶ Ρουβην καὶ τὸ ἥμισυ φυλῆς Μανασση ἐλάβοσαν τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτῶν πέραν τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἐπ᾽ ἀνατολάς ἣν ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς ὁ παῖς κυρίου

8 καὶ ἀναστάντες οἱ ἄνδρες ἐπορεύθησαν καὶ ἐνετείλατο Ἰησοῦς τοῖς ἀνδράσιν τοῖς πορευομένοις χωροβατῆσαι τὴν γῆν λέγων πορεύεσθε καὶ χωροβατήσατε τὴν γῆν καὶ παραγενήθητε πρός με καὶ ὧδε ἐξοίσω ὑμῖν κλῆρον ἔναντι κυρίου ἐν Σηλω

9 καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν καὶ ἐχωροβάτησαν τὴν γῆν καὶ εἴδοσαν αὐτὴν καὶ ἔγραψαν αὐτὴν κατὰ πόλεις αὐτῆς ἑπτὰ μερίδας εἰς βιβλίον καὶ ἤνεγκαν πρὸς Ἰησοῦν

10 καὶ ἐνέβαλεν αὐτοῖς Ἰησοῦς κλῆρον ἐν Σηλω ἔναντι κυρίου

11 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ κλῆρος φυλῆς Βενιαμιν πρῶτος κατὰ δήμους αὐτῶν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὅρια τοῦ κλήρου αὐτῶν ἀνὰ μέσον Ιουδα καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν υἱῶν Ιωσηφ

12 καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτῶν τὰ ὅρια ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ἀπὸ τοῦ Ιορδάνου προσαναβήσεται τὰ ὅρια κατὰ νώτου Ιεριχω ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ ἀναβήσεται ἐπὶ τὸ ὄρος ἐπὶ τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ ἔσται αὐτοῦ ἡ διέξοδος ἡ Μαδβαρῖτις Βαιθων

17 καὶ διελεύσεται ἐπὶ πηγὴν Βαιθσαμυς καὶ παρελεύσεται ἐπὶ Γαλιλωθ ἥ ἐστιν ἀπέναντι πρὸς ἀνάβασιν Αιθαμιν καὶ καταβήσεται ἐπὶ λίθον Βαιων υἱῶν Ρουβην

18 καὶ διελεύσεται κατὰ νώτου Βαιθαραβα ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ καταβήσεται

19 ἐπὶ τὰ ὅρια ἐπὶ νώτου Βαιθαγλα ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ ἔσται ἡ διέξοδος τῶν ὁρίων ἐπὶ λοφιὰν τῆς θαλάσσης τῶν ἁλῶν ἐπὶ βορρᾶν εἰς μέρος τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἀπὸ λιβός ταῦτα τὰ ὅριά ἐστιν ἀπὸ λιβός

20 καὶ ὁ Ιορδάνης ὁριεῖ ἀπὸ μέρους ἀνατολῶν αὕτη ἡ κληρονομία υἱῶν Βενιαμιν τὰ ὅρια αὐτῆς κύκλῳ κατὰ δήμους

21 καὶ ἐγενήθησαν αἱ πόλεις τῶν υἱῶν Βενιαμιν κατὰ δήμους αὐτῶν Ιεριχω καὶ Βαιθεγλιω καὶ Αμεκασις

1 Congregatique sunt omnes filii Israël in Silo, ibique fixerunt tabernaculum testimonii, et fuit eis terra subjecta.

2 Remanserant autem filiorum Israël septem tribus, quæ necdum acceperant possessiones suas.

3 Ad quos Josue ait: Usquequo marcetis ignavia, et non intratis ad possidendam terram, quam Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum dedit vobis?

4 Eligite de singulis tribubus ternos viros, ut mittam eos, et pergant atque circumeant terram, et describant eam juxta numerum uniuscujusque multitudinis: referantque ad me quod descripserint.

5 Dividite vobis terram in septem partes: Judas sit in terminis suis ab australi plaga, et domus Joseph ab aquilone.

6 Mediam inter hos terram in septem partes describite: et huc venietis ad me, ut coram Domino Deo vestro mittam vobis hic sortem:

7 quia non est inter vos pars Levitarum, sed sacerdotium Domini est eorum hæreditas. Gad autem et Ruben, et dimidia tribus Manasse, jam acceperant possessiones suas trans Jordanem ad orientalem plagam, quas dedit eis Moyses famulus Domini.

8 Cumque surrexissent viri, ut pergerent ad describendam terram, præcepit eis Josue, dicens: Circuite terram, et describite eam, ac revertimini ad me: ut hic coram Domino, in Silo, mittam vobis sortem.

9 Itaque perrexerunt: et lustrantes eam, in septem partes diviserunt, scribentes in volumine. Reversique sunt ad Josue in castra Silo.

10 Qui misit sortes coram Domino in Silo, divisitque terram filiis Israël in septem partes.

11 Et ascendit sors prima filiorum Benjamin per familias suas, ut possiderent terram inter filios Juda et filios Joseph.

12 Fuitque terminus eorum contra aquilonem a Jordane: pergens juxta latus Jericho septentrionalis plagæ, et inde contra occidentem ad montana conscendens et perveniens ad solitudinem Bethaven,

13 atque pertransiens juxta Luzam ad meridiem, ipsa est Bethel: descenditque in Ataroth Addar, in montem qui est ad meridiem Beth-horon inferioris:

14 et inclinatur circuiens contra mare ad meridiem montis qui respicit Beth-horon contra Africum: suntque exitus ejus in Cariath-baal, quæ vocatur et Cariathiarim, urbem filiorum Juda. Hæc est plaga contra mare, ad occidentem.

15 A meridie autem ex parte Cariathiarim egreditur terminus contra mare, et pervenit usque ad fontem aquarum Nephtoa.

16 Descenditque in partem montis, qui respicit vallem filiorum Ennom: et est contra septentrionalem plagam in extrema parte vallis Raphaim. Descenditque in Geennom (id est, vallem Ennom) juxta latus Jebusæi ad austrum: et pervenit ad fontem Rogel,

17 transiens ad aquilonem, et egrediens ad Ensemes, id est, fontem solis:

18 et pertransit usque ad tumulos, qui sunt e regione ascensus Adommim: descenditque ad Abenboën, id est, lapidem Boën filii Ruben: et pertransit ex latere aquilonis ad campestria: descenditque in planitiem,

19 et prætergreditur contra aquilonem Beth Hagla: suntque exitus ejus contra linguam maris salsissimi ab aquilone in fine Jordanis ad australem plagam:

20 qui est terminus illius ab oriente. Hæc est possessio filiorum Benjamin per terminos suos in circuitu, et familias suas.

21 Fueruntque civitates ejus, Jericho et Beth Hagla et vallis Casis,

22 Beth Araba et Samaraim et Bethel

23 et Avim et Aphara et Ophera,

24 villa Emona et Ophni et Gabee: civitates duodecim, et villæ earum.

25 Gabaon et Rama et Beroth,

26 et Mesphe et Caphara, et Amosa

27 et Recem, Jarephel et Tharela,

28 et Sela, Eleph, et Jebus, quæ est Jerusalem, Gabaath et Cariath: civitates quatuordecim, et villæ earum. Hæc est possessio filiorum Benjamin juxta familias suas.
