Bible: Josh 14:1-5

Judah’s Tribal Lands

14:1 The following is a record of the territory assigned to the Israelites in the land of Canaan by Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the Israelite tribal leaders. 1  14:2 The land assignments to the nine-and-a-half tribes were made by drawing lots, as the Lord had instructed Moses. 2  14:3 Now Moses had assigned land 3  to the two-and-a-half tribes east of the Jordan, but he assigned no land 4  to the Levites. 5  14:4 The descendants of Joseph were considered as two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim. The Levites were allotted no territory, though they were assigned cities in which to live, along with the grazing areas for their cattle and possessions. 6  14:5 The Israelites followed the Lord’s instructions to Moses and divided up the land. 7
