Ephraim’s and Manasseh’s territory defined and expanded. They complain there is not enough land for them, so Joshua tells them to take the some mountain territory which had not been completely conquered. The daughters of Zelophehad (who had no male heirs) are given land. Israel forces some Canaanites to work rather than drive them from the land.
Israel assembles at Shiloh and sets up the tabernacle. Seven tribes have no inheritance, so the remaining land is divided by lot. Benjamin’s land is defined.
Simeon, Zebulun, Issachar, Asher, Naphtali and Dan are allocated land. Dan’s territory expands after conquering Leshem. Joshua himself is given an inheritance – Timnath Serah in the mountains of Ephraim, where he builds a city. The land division is complete.
Kadesh, Shechem, Kirjatharba, Bezer, Ramoth and Golan are appointed as cities of refuge for manslayers who accidentally kill people.
Levites given 48 cities and their common lands from other tribes as inheritance. God give Israel all the things He promised; no enemies stand before Israel.
