down to the uttermost part of the mountain that lieth before the Valley of the son of Hinnom, which is in the vale of Rephaim northward; and it went down to the Valley of Hinnom, to the side of the Jebusite southward, and went down to En-rogel. 17And it was drawn on the north, and went out at En-shemesh, and went out to Geliloth, which is over against the ascent of Adummim; and it went down to the Stone of Bohan the son of Reuben. 18And it passed along to the side over against the Arabah northward, and went down unto the Arabah. 19And the border passed along to the side of Beth-hoglah northward; and the goings out of the border were at the north bay of the Salt Sea, at the south end of the Jordan; this was the south border. 20And the Jordan was to be the border of it on the east side. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the borders thereof round about, according to their families.

21Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, and Beth-hoglah, and Emek-keziz; 22and Beth-arabah, and Zemaraim, and Beth-el; 23and Avvim, and Parah, and Ophrah; 24and Chephar-ammonah, and Ophni, and Geba; twelve cities with their villages: 25Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth; 26and Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah; 27and Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah; 28and Zela, Eleph, and the Jebusite—the same is Jerusalem, Gibeath, and Kiriath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.

19And the second lot came out for Simeon, even for the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families; and their inheritance was in the midst of the inheritance of the children of Judah. 2And they had for their inheritance Beer-sheba with Sheba, and Moladah; 3and Hazar-shual, and Balah, and Ezem; 4and Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah; 5and Ziklag, and Beth-marcaboth, and Hazar-susah; 6and Beth-lebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities with their villages: 7Ain, Rimmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four cities with their villages; 8and all the villages that were round about these cities to Baalath-beer, as far as Ramah of the South. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families. 9Out of the allotment of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon, for the portion of the children of Judah was too much for them; therefore the children of Simeon had inheritance in the midst of their inheritance.

10And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun according to their families; and the border of their inheritance was unto Sarid. 11And their border went up westward, even to Maralah, and reached to Dabbesheth; and it reached to the brook that is before Jokneam. 12And it turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the border of Chisloth-tabor; and it went out to Dobrath, and went up to Japhia. 13And from thence it passed along eastward to Gath-hepher, to Ethkazin; and it went out at Rimmon-methoar unto Neah. 14And the border turned about it on the north to Hannathon; and the goings out thereof were at the valley of Iphtahel; 15and Kattath, and Nahalal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and Beth-lehem; twelve cities with their villages. 16This is the inheritance of the children of Zebulun according to their
