Joshua 14 ©
The nine tribes and half are to have their inheritance by lot. Caleb by privilege obtaineth Hebron.
AND these are the countries which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, awhich 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.
¶Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in hGilgal: and iCaleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses jthe man of God concerning me and thee in Kadesh-barnea.
Now therefore give me this smountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day thow 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.
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.
