001  Then came near the heads of the fathers of the Levites unto Eleazar the priest, and unto Joshua the son of Nun, and unto the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel;

002  And they spake unto them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, saying, The LORD commanded by the hand of Moses to give us cities to dwell in, with the suburbs thereof for our cattle.

003  And the children of Israel gave unto the Levites out of their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their suburbs.

004  And the lot came out for the families of the Kohathites: and the children of Aaron the priest, which were of the Levites, had by lot out of the tribe of Judah, and out of the tribe of Simeon, and out of the tribe of Benjamin, thirteen cities.

005  And the rest of the children of Kohath had by lot out of the families of the tribe of Ephraim, and out of the tribe of Dan, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh, ten cities.

006  And the children of Gershon had by lot out of the families of the tribe of Issachar, and out of the tribe of Asher, and out of the tribe of Naphtali, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh in Bashan, thirteen cities.

007  The children of Merari by their families had out of the tribe of Reuben, and out of the tribe of Gad, and out of the tribe of Zebulun, twelve cities.

008  And the children of Israel gave by lot unto the Levites these cities with their suburbs, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

009  And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah, and out of the tribe of the children of Simeon, these cities which are here mentioned by name,

010  Which the children of Aaron, being of the families of the Kohathites, who were of the children of Levi, had: for theirs was the first lot.

011  And they gave them the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, with the suburbs thereof round about it.

012  But the fields of the city, and the villages thereof, gave they to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for his possession.

013  Thus they gave to the children of Aaron the priest Hebron with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Libnah with her suburbs,

014  And Jattir with her suburbs, and Eshtemoa with her suburbs,

015  And Holon with her suburbs, and Debir with her suburbs,

016  And Ain with her suburbs, and Juttah with her suburbs, and Bethshemesh with her suburbs; nine cities out of those two tribes.

017  And out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with her suburbs, Geba with her suburbs,

018  Anathoth with her suburbs, and Almon with her suburbs; four cities.

019  All the cities of the children of Aaron, the priests, were thirteen cities with their suburbs.

020  And the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites which remained of the children of Kohath, even they had the cities of their lot out of the tribe of Ephraim.

021  For they gave them Shechem with her suburbs in mount Ephraim, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Gezer with her suburbs,

022  And Kibzaim with her suburbs, and Bethhoron with her suburbs; four cities.

023  And out of the tribe of Dan, Eltekeh with her suburbs, Gibbethon with her suburbs,

024  Aijalon with her suburbs, Gathrimmon with her suburbs; four cities.

025  And out of the half tribe of Manasseh, Tanach with her suburbs, and Gathrimmon with her suburbs; two cities.

026  All the cities were ten with their suburbs for the families of the children of Kohath that remained.

027  And unto the children of Gershon, of the families of the Levites, out of the other half tribe of Manasseh they gave Golan in Bashan with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Beeshterah with her suburbs; two cities.

028  And out of the tribe of Issachar, Kishon with her suburbs, Dabareh with her suburbs,

029  Jarmuth with her suburbs, Engannim with her suburbs; four cities.

030  And out of the tribe of Asher, Mishal with her suburbs, Abdon with her suburbs,

031  Helkath with her suburbs, and Rehob with her suburbs; four cities.

032  And out of the tribe of Naphtali, Kedesh in Galilee with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Hammothdor with her suburbs, and Kartan with her suburbs; three cities.

033  All the cities of the Gershonites according to their families were thirteen cities with their suburbs.

034  And unto the families of the children of Merari, the rest of the Levites, out of the tribe of Zebulun, Jokneam with her suburbs, and Kartah with her suburbs,

035  Dimnah with her suburbs, Nahalal with her suburbs; four cities.

036  And out of the tribe of Reuben, Bezer with her suburbs, and Jahazah with her suburbs,

037  Kedemoth with her suburbs, and Mephaath with her suburbs; four cities.

038  And out of the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Gilead with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Mahanaim with her suburbs,

039  Heshbon with her suburbs, Jazer with her suburbs; four cities in all.

040  So all the cities for the children of Merari by their families, which were remaining of the families of the Levites, were by their lot twelve cities.

041  All the cities of the Levites within the possession of the children of Israel were forty and eight cities with their suburbs.

042  These cities were every one with their suburbs round about them: thus were all these cities.

043  And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.

044  And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.

045  There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.
