1 This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families; even to the border of Edom the wilderness of Zin southward was the uttermost part of the south border.
2 And their south border was from the shore of the salt sea, from the bay that looketh southward:
3 And it went out to the south side to Maalehacrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and ascended on the south side to Kadeshbarnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and turned about to Karkaa:
4 From there it passed toward Azmon, and went out to the river of Egypt; and the ends of that border were at the sea: this shall be your south border.
5 And the east border was the salt sea, even to the end of Jordan. And their border in the north quarter was from the bay of the sea at the mouth of the Jordan:
6 And the border went up to Bethhogla, and passed along by the north of Betharabah; and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben:
7 And the border went up toward Debir from the valley of Achor, and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that is before the ascent of Adummim, which is on the south side of the river: and the border passed toward the waters of Enshemesh, and the borders of it were at Enrogel:
8 And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom to the south side of the Jebusite; 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 of the valley of the giants northward:
9 And the border extended from the top of the hill to the fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of mount Ephron; and the border extended to Baalah, which is Kirjathjearim:
10 And the border turned from Baalah westward to mount Seir, and passed along to the side of mount Jearim, which is Chesalon, on the north side, and went down to Bethshemesh, and passed on to Timnah:
11 And the border went out to the side of Ekron northward: and the border extended to Shicron, and passed along to mount Baalah, and went out to Jabneel; and the ends of the border were at the sea.
12 And the west border was to the great sea, and its coast. This is the border of the children of Judah all around according to their families.
13 And to Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua, even the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron.
14 And Caleb drove from there the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak.
15 And he went up from there to the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher.
16 And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter for a wife.
17 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter for a wife.
18 And it came to pass, as she came to him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and she got off her donkey; and Caleb said to her, What wouldest thou?
19 Who answered, Give me a blessing; for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And he gave her the upper springs, and the lower springs.
20 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.
