Judah's Portion Joshua 15
Joshua 15:1 "This then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah, to their families; even to the border of Edom the wilderness of Zin southward was the uttermost part of the south coast."
The little drawing is not accurate but is meant to show the approximate area for Judah..
Included is the inheritance of Caleb. I'm thinking he was also part of the tribe of Judah but received special consideration because of his heroic duty as a spy before the wilderness years.
Caleb, in this chapter offers anyone who would take a certain area, one of his daughters. A man succeded and received Caleb's daughter as a reward. v16
She asked for springs to water the land and was given them by her father. v18-19
Israel was not totally successful in driving out all the people as this verse shows.
v63 "As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day.
We will not here repeat what is written in the chapter but allow you to read it. It gives the borders in geat detail.
Psalms 1:6 "For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish."
