1 The borders of Judah
1 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families; Num. 34:3even to the border of Edom, the Num. 33:36wilderness of Zin southward was the uttermost part of the south coast.
3 And it went out to the south side Num. 34:4to [b]Maaleh-acrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and ascended up on the south side unto Kadesh-barnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and fetched a compass to Karkaa:
4 From thence it passed Num. 34:5toward Azmon, and went out unto the river of Egypt; 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. And their border in the north quarter was from the bay of the sea at the uttermost part of Jordan:
6 And the border went up to ch. 18:19Beth-hogla, and passed along by the north of Beth-arabah; and the border went up ch. 18:17to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben:
7 And the border went up toward Debir from ch. 7:26the 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 towards the waters of En-shemesh, and the goings out thereof were at 2 Sam. 17:17;1 Ki. 1:9En-rogel:
8 And the border went up ch. 18:16;2 Ki. 23:10;Jer. 19:2,6by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the ch. 18:28;Judg. 1:21;& 19:10Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem: and the border went up to the top of the mountain that lieth before the valley of Hinnom westward, which is at the end ch. 18:16of the valley of the giants northward:
9 And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto ch. 18:15the fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of mount Ephron; and the border was drawn 1 Chr. 13:6to Baalah, which is Judg. 18:12Kirjath-jearim:
10 And the border compassed from Baalah westward unto mount Seir, and passed along unto the side of mount Jearim, which is Chesalon, on the north side, and went down to Beth-shemesh, and passed on to Gen. 38:13;Judg. 14:1Timnah:
11 And the border went out unto the side of ch. 19:43Ekron northward: and the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to mount Baalah, and went out unto Jabneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea.
12 And the west border was ver. 47;Num. 34:6,7to the great sea, and the coast thereof. This is the coast of the children of Judah round about according to their families.
13 ch. 14:13And unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of the Lord to Joshua, even ch. 14:15[c]the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron.
14 And Caleb drove thence Judg. 1:11,20the three sons of Anak, Num. 13:22Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.
15 And ch. 10:38;Judg. 1:11he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjath-sepher.
16 Judg. 1:12And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjath-sepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife.
17 And Judg. 1:13;& 3:9Othniel the Num. 32:12;ch. 14:6son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.
18 Judg. 1:14And it came to pass, as she came unto him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and See Gen. 24:64;1 Sam. 25:23she lighted off her ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wouldest thou?
19 Who answered, Give me a Gen. 33:11blessing; for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And he gave her the upper springs, and the nether springs.
