This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families.
9
Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon;

47
And the territory of the children of Dan was not sufficient for them;
therefore the Danites went up and fought against Eino, and captured it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt in it, and called Eino, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.
48
This is the inheritance of the tribe of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages.
49
When they had finished dividing the land as their inheritance and delineating its boundaries, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them;
50
According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked, Timnath-serah on mount Ephraim;
and he built the city and dwelt in it.
51
These are the inheritances which Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of Israel divided by lot at Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
So they completed the division of the land.
