   1: And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there: and the land was subdued before them.
   2: And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance.
   3: And Joshua said to the children of Israel, How long [are] ye slack to go to possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you?
   4: Select from among you three men for [each] tribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and describe it according to the inheritance of them, and they shall come [again] to me.
   5: And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide in their border on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in their borders on the north.
   6: Ye shall therefore describe the land [in] seven parts, and bring [the description] hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.
   7: But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD [is] their inheritance. And Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.
   8: And the men arose, and departed: and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go, and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.
   9: And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities in seven parts in a book, and came [again], to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.
   10: And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided the land to the children of Israel according to their divisions.
   11: And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the border of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.
   12: And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side, and went up through the mountains westward; and the limits of it were at the wilderness of Beth-aven.
   13: And the border went over from thence towards Luz, to the side of Luz (which [is] Beth-el) southward; and the border descended to Ataroth-adar, near the hill that [lieth] on the south side of the nether Beth-horon.
   14: And the border was drawn [thence], and compassed the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that [lieth] before Beth-horon southward; and the limits of it were at Kirjath-baal (which [is] Kirjath-jearim) a city of the children of Judah. This [was] the west quarter.
   15: And the south quarter [was] from the end of Kirjah-jearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of waters of Nephtoah:
   16: And the border came down to the end of the mountain that [lieth] before the valley of the son of Hinnom, [and] which [is] in the valley of the giants on the north, and descended to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended to En-rogel,
   17: And was drawn from the north, and went forth to En-shemesh, and went forth towards Geliloth, which [is] over against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,
   18: And passed along towards the side over against Arabah northward, and went down to Arabah:
   19: And the border passed along to the side of Beth-hoglah northward: and the limits of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan. This [was] the south border.
   20: And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This [was] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the limits of it round about, according to their families.
   21: Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin, according to their families, were Jericho, and Beth-hoglah, and the valley of Keziz,
   22: And Beth-arabah, and Zemaraim, and Beth-el,
   23: And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,
   24: And Chephar-haamonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with 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, (which [is] Jerusalem) Gibeath, [and] Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This [is] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.
