Joshua 21


21:1 Then came near the heads of the fathers of the Levites to
 Eleazar the priest, and to Joshua the son of Nun, and to the
 heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel;
21:2 And they spoke to 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 their suburbs for our cattle.
21:3 And the children of Israel gave to the Levites out of their
 inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and
 their suburbs.
21:4 And the lot came out for the families of the Kohathites:
 and the children of Aaron the priest, [who 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.
21:5 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.
21:6 And the children of Gershon [had] by lot out of the

 cities with their suburbs, as the LORD commanded by the hand of
 Moses.
21:9 And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah,
 and out of the tribe of the children of Simeon, these cities

 suburbs,
21:15 And Holon with its suburbs, and Debir with its suburbs,
21:16 And Ain with its suburbs, and Juttah with its suburbs,

 two tribes.
21:17 And out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with its suburbs,
 Geba with its suburbs,

21:20 And the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites
 who remained of the children of Kohath, even they had the
 cities of their lot out of the tribe of Ephraim.
21:21 For they gave them Shechem with its suburbs in mount
 Ephraim, [to be] a city of refuge for the slayer; and Gezer
 with its suburbs,
21:22 And Kibzaim with its suburbs, and Beth-horon with its
 suburbs; four cities.
21:23 And out of the tribe of Dan, Eltekeh with its suburbs,

21:25 And out of the half-tribe of Manasseh, Taanach with its
 suburbs, and Gath-rimmon with its suburbs; two cities.
21:26 All the cities [were] ten with their suburbs, for the
 families of the children of Kohath that remained.
21:27 And to the children of Gershon, of the families of the
 Levites, out of the [other] half-tribe of Manasseh [they gave]
 Golan in Bashan with its suburbs, [to be] a city of refuge for
 the slayer, and Beesh-terah with its suburbs; two cities.
21:28 And out of the tribe of Issachar, Kishon with its suburbs,

21:31 Helkath with its suburbs, and Rehob with its suburbs; four
 cities.
21:32 And out of the tribe of Naphtali, Kedesh in Galilee with
 its suburbs, [to be] a city of refuge for the slayer; and

 three cities.
21:33 All the cities of the Gershonites, according to their
 families, [were] thirteen cities with their suburbs.
21:34 And to the families of the children of Merari, the rest of
 the Levites, out of the tribe of Zebulun, Jokneam with its

21:35 Dimnah with its suburbs, Nahalal with its suburbs; four
 cities.
21:36 And out of the tribe of Reuben, Bezer with its suburbs,
 and Jahazah with its suburbs,
21:37 Kedemoth with its suburbs, and Mephaath with its suburbs;
 four cities.
21:38 And out of the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Gilead with its
 suburbs [to be] a city of refuge for the slayer; and Mahanaim
 with its suburbs,
21:39 Heshbon with its suburbs, Jazer with its suburbs; four
 cities in all.
21:40 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.
21:41 All the cities of the Levites within the possession of the
 children of Israel [were] forty and eight cities with their
 suburbs.
21:42 These cities were every one with their suburbs around
 them. Thus [were] all these cities.
21:43 And the LORD gave to Israel all the land which he swore to
 give to their fathers: and they possessed it, and dwelt in it.
21:44 And the LORD gave them rest on all sides, according to all
 that he swore to their fathers: and there stood not a man of
 all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their
 enemies into their hand.
21:45 There failed not aught of any good thing which the LORD
 had spoken to the house of Israel; all came to pass.
