Joshua 15

1 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah (Yehudah) by their families; even to the border of Edom the wilderness of Zin southward was the uttermost part of the south coast.

2 And their south border was from the shore of the salt sea, from the bay that looketh southward.

3 And it went out to the south side to Maalehacrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and ascended up on the south side unto Qadesh Barnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and fetched a compass to Karkaa.

4 From thence it passed toward Azmon, and went out unto the river of Egypt (Mitsrayim); and the goings out of that coast were at the sea: this shall be your south coast.

5 And the east border was the salt sea, even unto the end of Jordan (Yarden). And their border in the north quarter was from the bay of the sea at the uttermost part of Jordan (Yarden).

6 And the border went up to Beit-Hogla, and passed along by the north of Beit-Aravah; and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuven.

7 And the border went up toward Debir from the valley of Achor, and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that is before the going up to Adummim, which is on the south side of the river; and the border passed toward the waters of Enshemesh, and the goings out thereof were at En Rogel.

8 And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the Yevusi; the same is Jerusalem (Yerushalayim); and the border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end of the valley of the giants northward.

9 And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto the fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of Mount Ephron; and the border was drawn to Baalah, which is Qiryat-Yearim.

10 And the border compassed from Baalah westward unto mount Seir, and passed along unto the side of Mount Yearim, which is Chesalon, on the north side, and went down to Beit-Shemesh, and passed on to Timnah.

11 And the border went out unto the side of Ekron northward; and the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to Mount Baalah, and went out unto Yavneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea.

12 And the west border was to the great sea, and the coast thereof. This is the coast of the children of Judah (Yehudah) round about according to their families.

13 And unto Caleb the son of Yefunneh he gave a part among the children of Judah (Yehudah), according to the commandment of יהוה to Joshua (Yehoshua), even the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron.

14 And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.

15 And he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir; and the name of Debir before was Qiryat-Sepher.

16 And Caleb said, “He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.”

17 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it; and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.

18 And it came to pass, as she came unto him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field; and she lighted off her ass; and Caleb said unto her, “What you want?”

19 Who answered, “Give me a blessing; for you have given me a south land; give me also springs of water.” And he gave her the upper springs, and the nether springs.

20 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah (Yehudah) according to their families:
