2 By lot was their inheritance, as families; even to the border of Edom; the LORD commanded by the hand the wilderness of Zin fouthward wai of Mofes, for the nine tribes, and for the uttermoft part of the fouth coast. the half tribe. 2 And their fouth border was from the shore of the falt fea, from the bay that looketh fouthward:

3 For Mofes had given the inheritance of two tribes and an half tribe on the other fide Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave none inheritance among them.

4 For the children of Jofeph were two tribes, Manaffeh and Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, fave cities to dwell in, with their fuburbs for their eattle and for their fubftance.

5 As the LORD commanded Mofes, fo the children of ifrael did, and they divided the land.

6 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal; and Caleb the fon of Jephunneh the Kenezite faid unto him, thou knoweft the thing that the LORD faid unto Mofes the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeh-barnea.

7 Forty years old was I when Mofes the fervant of the LORD fent me from Kaleb-barnea to efpy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart.

8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.

9 And Mofes fware on that day, faying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden fhall be thine inhe ritance, and thy children's for ever; becaufe thou hait wholly followed the LORD my God.

10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he faid, thefe forty and five years, even fince the LORD fpake this word unto Mofes, while the children of Ifrael wandered in the wildernefs: and now, lo, I am this day fourfcore and five years old.

11 As yet I am as ftrong this day as I was in the day that Mofes fent me: as my ftrength was then, even fo is my ftrengch now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.

12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD fpake in that day; for thou heardeft in that day how the Anakims were there, andrba: the cities were great and fenced: if fo be the LORD will be with me, then fhall be able to drive them out, as the

LORD faid.
