The Tribes of Manasseh and Ephraim - Joshua 14

Joshua 14:1 And these are the countries which the children of  Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the  priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the  fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for  inheritance to them. 

Joshua 14:2 By lot was their inheritance,  as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses, for the  nine tribes, and for the half tribe. 

Joshua 14:3 For Moses had  given the inheritance of two tribes and an half tribe on the  other side Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave none  inheritance among them. 

Joshua 14:4 For the children of Joseph  were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they  gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save cities to  dwell in, with their suburbs for their cattle and for their  substance. 

Joshua 14:5 As the LORD commanded Moses, so the  children of Israel did, and they divided the land.  

Joshua 14:6 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in  Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said  unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto  Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea.  

Joshua 14:7 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh-barnea to espy  out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in  mine heart. 

Joshua 14:8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up  with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly  followed the LORD my God. 

Joshua 14:9 And Moses sware on  that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have  trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s for  ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my  God. 


Joshua 14:10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me  alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the  LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the children of  Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this  day fourscore and five years old. 

Joshua 14:11 As yet I am as  strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as  my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for  war, both to go out, and to come in. 

Joshua 14:12 Now therefore  give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that  day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were  there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be  the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive  them out, as the LORD said. 

Joshua 14:13 And Joshua blessed  him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for  an inheritance. 

Joshua 14:14 Hebron therefore became the  inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite unto  this day, because that he wholly followed the LORD God of  Israel. 

Joshua 14:15 And the name of Hebron before was  Kirjath-arba; which Arba was a great man among the  Anakims. And the land had rest from war.
