1ሁለተኛው ዕጣ ለስምዖን ነገድ በየጐሣ በየጐሣው ወጣ፤ ርስታቸውም ዙሪያውን በይሁዳ ነገድ ርስት የተከበበ ነበር፤ 2ይህም የሚከተሉትን ያካትታል፤ ቤርሳቤህ፣ ሤባ፣ ሞላዳ፣ 3ሐጸር ሹዓል፣ ባላ፣ ዔጼም፣ 4ኤልቶላድ፣ በቱል፣ ሔርማ፣ 5ጺቅላግ፣ ቤትማርካቦት፣ ሐጸርሱሳ፣ 6ቤተለባኦትና ሻሩሔን ነበሩ፤ እነዚህ ዐሥራ ሦስት ከተሞችና መንደሮቻቸው ናቸው።

7ዓይን፣ ሪሞን፣ ዔቴርና ዓሻን የተባሉት አራት ከተሞቻቸውና መንደሮቻቸው፣ 8ደግሞም እስከ ባዕላትብኤር ወይም ኔጌብ ውስጥ እስካለው እስከ ራማት ድረስ ባሉት ከተሞች ዙሪያ የሚገኙት መንደሮች ሁሉ ከእነዚሁ ጋር ይጠቃለላሉ።

እንግዲህ በየጐሣው የተደለደለው የስምዖን ነገድ ርስት ይህ ነበር። 9የይሁዳ ነገድ የያዘው ርስት እጅግ ሰፊ ስለ ነበር፣ ከይሁዳ ነገድ ድርሻ ተከፍሎ ለስምዖን ነገድ በርስትነት ተሰጠ፤ ከዚህ የተነሣም የስምዖን ነገድ በይሁዳ ነገድ ድርሻ ርስት ሊካፈል ቻለ።

Joshua 19:1-51

Land allotted to Simeon

1The second lot came out for the tribe of Simeon according to its clans. Their inheritance lay within the territory of Judah. 2It included:

Beersheba (or Sheba),19:2 Or Beersheba, Sheba; 1 Chron. 4:28 does not have Sheba. Moladah, 3Hazar Shual, Balah, Ezem, 4Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah, 5Ziklag, Beth Markaboth, Hazar Susah, 6Beth Lebaoth and Sharuhen – thirteen towns and their villages;

This was the inheritance of the tribe of the Simeonites, according to its clans. 9The inheritance of the Simeonites was taken from the share of Judah, because Judah’s portion was more than they needed. So the Simeonites received their inheritance within the territory of Judah.

Land allotted to Zebulun

10The third lot came up for Zebulun according to its clans:

The boundary of their inheritance went as far as Sarid. 11Going west it ran to Maralah, touched Dabbesheth, and extended to the ravine near Jokneam. 12It turned east from Sarid towards the sunrise to the territory of Kisloth Tabor and went on to Daberath and up to Japhia. 13Then it continued eastward to Gath Hepher and Eth Kazin; it came out at Rimmon and turned towards Neah. 14There the boundary went round on the north to Hannathon and ended at the Valley of Iphtah El.

15Included were Kattath, Nahalal, Shimron, Idalah and Bethlehem. There were twelve towns and their villages.

Land allotted to Asher

24The fifth lot came out for the tribe of Asher according to its clans. 25Their territory included:

There were twenty-two towns and their villages.

31These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the tribe of Asher, according to its clans.

Land allotted to Naphtali

32The sixth lot came out for Naphtali according to its clans:

33Their boundary went from Heleph and the large tree in Zaanannim, passing Adami Nekeb and Jabneel to Lakkum and ending at the Jordan. 34The boundary ran west through Aznoth Tabor and came out at Hukkok. It touched Zebulun on the south, Asher on the west and the Jordan19:34 Septuagint; Hebrew west, and Judah, the Jordan, on the east.

35The fortified cities were Ziddim, Zer, Hammath, Rakkath, Kinnereth, 36Adamah, Ramah, Hazor, 37Kedesh, Edrei, En Hazor, 38Iron, Migdal El, Horem, Beth Anath and Beth Shemesh.

There were nineteen towns and their villages.

39These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the tribe of Naphtali, according to its clans.

Land allotted to Dan

40The seventh lot came out for the tribe of Dan according to its clans. 41The territory of their inheritance included:

Zorah, Eshtaol, Ir Shemesh, 42Shaalabbin, Aijalon, Ithlah, 43Elon, Timnah, Ekron, 44Eltekeh, Gibbethon, Baalath, 45Jehud, Bene Berak, Gath Rimmon, 46Me Jarkon and Rakkon, with the area facing Joppa.

47(When the territory of the Danites was lost to them, they went up and attacked Leshem, took it, put it to the sword and occupied it. They settled in Leshem and named it Dan after their ancestor.)

48These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the tribe of Dan, according to its clans.

Land allotted to Joshua

49When they had finished dividing the land into its allotted portions, the Israelites gave Joshua son of Nun an inheritance among them, 50as the Lord had commanded. They gave him the town he asked for – Timnath Serah19:50 Also known as Timnath Heres (see Judges 2:9) in the hill country of Ephraim. And he built up the town and settled there.

51These are the territories that Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun and the heads of the tribal clans of Israel assigned by lot at Shiloh in the presence of the Lord at the entrance to the tent of meeting. And so they finished dividing the land.
