The Holy Bible - The Book of Joshua, Chapter 18 (Latin)
1And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.
2And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance.
3And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you?
4Give out from among you three men for each tribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and describe it according to the inheritance of them; and they shall come again to me.
5And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in their coasts on the north.
6Ye shall therefore describe the land into seven parts, and bring the description hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.
7But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD is their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.
8And the men arose, and went away: and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh.
9And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came again to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.
10And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel according to their divisions.
11And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.
12And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side, and went up through the mountains westward; and the goings out thereof were at the wilderness of Bethaven.
13And the border went over from thence toward Luz, to the side of Luz, which is Bethel, southward; and the border descended to Atarothadar, near the hill that lieth on the south side of the nether Bethhoron.
14And the border was drawn thence, and compassed the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that lieth before Bethhoron southward; and the goings out thereof were at Kirjathbaal, which is Kirjathjearim, a city of the children of Judah: this was the west quarter.
15And the south quarter was from the end of Kirjathjearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of waters of Nephtoah:
16And the border came down to the end of the mountain that lieth before the valley of the son of Hinnom, and which is in the valley of the giants on the north, and descended to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended to Enrogel,
17And was drawn from the north, and went forth to Enshemesh, and went forth toward Geliloth, which is over against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,
18And passed along toward the side over against Arabah northward, and went down unto Arabah:
19And the border passed along to the side of Bethhoglah northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this was the south coast.
20And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This was the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round about, according to their families.
21Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the valley of Keziz,
22And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,
23And Avim, and Pharah, and Ophrah,
24And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with their villages:
25Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,
26And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,
27And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,
28And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath, and Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.
1congregatique sunt omnes filii Israhel in Silo ibique fixerunt tabernaculum testimonii et fuit eis terra subiecta
2remanserant autem filiorum Israhel septem tribus quae necdum acceperant possessiones suas
3ad quos Iosue ait usquequo marcetis ignavia et non intratis ad possidendam terram quam Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum dedit vobis
4eligite de singulis tribubus ternos viros ut mittam eos et pergant atque circumeant terram et describant eam iuxta numerum uniuscuiusque multitudinis referantque ad me quod descripserint
5dividite vobis terram in septem partes Iudas sit in terminis suis ab australi plaga et domus Ioseph ab aquilone
6mediam inter hos terram in septem partes describite et huc venietis ad me ut coram Domino Deo vestro mittam vobis hic sortem
7quia non est inter vos pars Levitarum sed sacerdotium Domini est eorum hereditas Gad autem et Ruben et dimidia tribus Manasse iam acceperant possessiones suas trans Iordanem ad orientalem plagam quas dedit eis Moses famulus Domini
8cumque surrexissent viri ut pergerent ad describendam terram praecepit eis Iosue dicens circuite terram et describite eam ac revertimini ad me ut hic coram Domino Deo in Silo mittam vobis sortem
9itaque perrexerunt et lustrantes eam in septem partes diviserunt scribentes in volumine reversique sunt ad Iosue in castra Silo
10qui misit sortes coram Domino in Silo divisitque terram filiis Israhel in septem partes
11et ascendit sors prima filiorum Beniamin per familias suas ut possiderent terram inter filios Iuda et filios Ioseph
12fuitque terminus eorum contra aquilonem ab Iordane pergens iuxta latus Hiericho septentrionalis plagae et inde contra occidentem ad montana conscendens et perveniens in solitudinem Bethaven
13atque pertransiens iuxta Luzam ad meridiem ipsa est Bethel descenditque in Atharothaddar in montem qui est ad meridiem Bethoron inferioris
14et inclinatur circumiens contra mare a meridie montis qui respicit Bethoron contra africum suntque exitus eius in Cariathbaal quae vocatur et Cariathiarim urbem filiorum Iuda haec est plaga contra mare et occidentem
15a meridie autem ex parte Cariathiarim egreditur terminus contra mare et pervenit usque ad fontem aquarum Nepthoa
16descenditque in partem montis qui respicit vallem filiorum Ennom et est contra septentrionalem plagam in extrema parte vallis Rafaim descenditque Gehennom id est vallis Ennom iuxta latus Iebusei ad austrum et pervenit ad fontem Rogel
17transiens ad aquilonem et egrediens ad Aensemes id est fontem Solis
18et pertransit usque ad tumulos qui sunt e regione ascensus Adommim descenditque ad Abenboen id est lapidem Boen filii Ruben et pertransit ex latere aquilonis ad campestria descenditque in planitiem
19et praetergreditur contra aquilonem Bethagla suntque exitus eius contra linguam maris Salsissimi ab aquilone in fine Iordanis ad australem plagam
20qui est terminus illius ab oriente haec est possessio filiorum Beniamin per terminos suos in circuitu et familias singulas
21fueruntque civitates eius Hiericho et Bethagla et vallis Casis
22Betharaba et Semaraim et Bethel
23Avim et Affara et Ofra
24villa Emona et Ofni et Gabee civitates duodecim et villae earum
25Gabaon et Rama et Beroth
26et Mesfe Cafera et Ammosa
27et Recem Iarafel et Tharala
28et Sela Eleph et Iebus quae est Hierusalem Gabaath et Cariath civitates quattuordecim et villae earum haec est possessio filiorum Beniamin iuxta familias suas
