6Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of
Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said

7Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from
Kadesh-barnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine

trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s for ever, because thou hast
wholly followed the LORD my God.
10And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five

thou heardest in that day how 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.
