Joshua 13
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

Lands Yet Unconquered

1And Joshua was old and very advanced in years; and the Lord said to Joshua, Thou art advanced in years, and there is much land left to inherit. 2And this is the land that is left: the borders of the Phylistines, the Gesirite, and the Chananite, 3from the wilderness before Egypt, as far as the borders of Accaron on the left of the Chananites the land is reckoned to the five principalities of the Phylistines, to the inhabitant of Gaza, and of Azotus, and of Ascalon, and of Geth, and of Accaron, and to the Evite; 4from Thaeman even to all the land of Chanaan before Gaza, and the Sidonians as far as Aphec, as far as the borders of the Amorites. 5And all the land of Galiath of the Phylistines, and all Libanus eastward from Galgal, under the mountain Aermon as far as the entering in of Emath; 6every one that inhabits the hill country from Libanus as far as Masereth Memphomaim. All the Sidonians, I will destroy them from before Israel; but do thou give them by inheritance to Israel, as I charged thee. 7And now divide this land by lot to the nine tribes, and to the half tribe of Manasse.

The Inheritance East of the Jordan

8From Jordan to the great sea westward thou shalt give it them: the great sea shall be the boundary. But to the two tribes and to the half tribe of Manasse, to Ruben and to Gad Moses gave an inheritance beyond Jordan: Moses the servant of the Lord gave it to them eastward, 9from Aroer, which is on the bank of the brook of Arnon, and the city in the midst of the valley, and all Misor from Maedaban. 10All the cities of Seon king of the Amorites, who reigned from Esebon to the coasts of the children of Ammon; 11and the region of Galaad, and the borders of the Gesirites and the Machatites, the whole mount of Aermon, and all the land of Basan to Acha. 12All the kingdom of Og in the region of Basan, who reigned in Astaroth and in Edrain: he was left of the giants; and Moses smote him, and destroyed him. 13But the children of Israel destroyed not the Gesirite and the Machatite and the Chananite; and the king of the Gesiri and the Machatite dwelt among the children of Israel until this day. 14Only no inheritance was given to the tribe of Levi: the Lord God of Israel, he is their inheritance, as the Lord said to them; and this is the division which Moses made to the children of Israel in Araboth Moab, on the other side of Jordan, by Jericho.

Reuben’s Inheritance

15And Moses gave the land to the tribe of Ruben according to their families. 16And their borders were from Aroer, which is opposite the brook of Arnon, and theirs is the city that is in the valley of Arnon; and all Misor, 17to Esebon, and all the cities in Misor, and Daebon, and Baemon-Baal, and the house of Meelboth; 18and Basan, and Bakedmoth, and Maephaad, 19and Kariathaim, and Sebama, and Serada, and Sion in mount Enab; 20and Baethphogor, and Asedoth Phasga, and Baetthasinoth, 21and all the cities of Misor, and all the kingdom of Seon king of the Amorites, whom Moses smote, even him and the princes of Madian, and Evi, and Roboc, and Sur, and Ur, and Robe prince of the spoils of Sion, and the inhabitants of Sion.

22And Balaam the son of Baeor the prophet they slew in the battle. 23And the borders of Ruben were - even Jordan was the boundary; this is the inheritance of the children of Ruben according to their families, these were their cities and their villages.

Gad’s Inheritance

24And Moses gave inheritance to the sons of Gad according to their families. 25And their borders were Jazer, all the cities of Galaad, and half the land of the children of Ammon to Araba, which is before Arad. 26And from Esebon to Araboth by Massepha, and Botanim, and Maan to the borders of Daebon, 27and Enadom, and Othargai, and Baenthanabra, and Soccotha, and Saphan, and the rest of the kingdom of Sean king of Esebon: and Jordan shall be the boundary as far as part of the sea of Chenereth beyond Jordan eastward. 28This is the inheritance of the children of Gad according to their families and according to their cities: according to their families they will turn their backs before their enemies, because their cities and their villages were according to their families.

Manasseh’s Eastern Inheritance

29And Moses gave to half the tribe of Manasse according to their families. 30And their borders were from Maan, and all the kingdom of Basan, and all the kingdom of Og king of Basan, and all the villages of Jair, which are in the region of Basan, sixty cities: 31and the half of Galaad, and in Astaroth, and in Edrain, royal cities of Og in the land of Basan, Moses gave to the sons of Machir the sons of Manasse, even to the half-tribe sons of Machir the sons of Manasse, according to their families.

32These are they whom Moses caused to inherit beyond Jordan in Araboth Moab, beyond Jordan by Jericho eastward. 33(OMITTED TEXT)
