يَشُوع 21

ثُمَّ تَقَدَّمَ رُؤَسَاءُ آبَاءِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ إِلَى أَلِعَازَارَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ وَإِلَى يَشُوعَ بْنِ نُونَ وَإِلَى رُؤَسَاءِ آبَاءِ أَسْبَاطِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ١ 1
Then the tribal leaders of the Levites came to Eleazar the priest, to Joshua son of Nun, and to the leaders of the families of their ancestors within the people of Israel.
وَكَلَّمُوهُمْ فِي شِيلُوهَ فِي أَرْضِ كَنْعَانَ قَائِلِينَ: «قَدْ أَمَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَى يَدِ مُوسَى أَنْ نُعْطَى مُدُنًا لِلسَّكَنِ مَعَ مَسَارِحِهَا لِبَهَائِمِنَا». ٢ 2
They said to them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, “Yahweh commanded you by the hand of Moses to give to us cities to live in, with the pasturelands for our livestock.”
فَأَعْطَى بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ مِنْ نَصِيبِهِمْ، حَسَبَ قَوْلِ ٱلرَّبِّ، هَذِهِ ٱلْمُدُنَ مَعَ مَسَارِحهَا. ٣ 3
So by the command of Yahweh, the people of Israel gave out of their inheritance the following cities, including their pasturelands, to the Levites.
فَخَرَجَتِ ٱلْقُرْعَةُ لِعَشَائِرِ ٱلْقَهَاتِيِّينَ. فَكَانَ لِبَنِي هَارُونَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ مِنَ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ بِٱلْقُرْعَةِ ثَلَاثَ عَشَرَةَ مَدِينَةً مِنْ سِبْطِ يَهُوذَا وَمِنْ سِبْطِ شِمْعُونَ وَمِنْ سِبْطِ بَنْيَامِينَ. ٤ 4
The casting of lots for the clans of the Kohathites gave this result: The priests—the descendants of Aaron who were from the Levites—received thirteen cities given from the tribe of Judah, from the tribe of the Simeon, and from the tribe of Benjamin.
وَلِبَنِي قَهَاتَ ٱلْبَاقِينَ عَشَرُ مُدُنٍ بِٱلْقُرْعَةِ مِنْ عَشَائِرِ سِبْطِ أَفْرَايِمَ وَمِنْ سِبْطِ دَانَ وَمِنْ نِصْفِ سِبْطِ مَنَسَّى. ٥ 5
The rest of the Kohathites were allotted ten cities from the clans of the tribes of Ephraim, Dan, and from the half tribe of Manasseh.
وَلِبَنِي جَرْشُونَ ثَلَاثَ عَشْرَةَ مَدِينَةً بِٱلْقُرْعَةِ مِنْ عَشَائِرِ سِبْطِ يَسَّاكَرَ وَمِنْ سِبْطِ أَشِيرَ وَمِنْ سِبْطِ نَفْتَالِي وَمِنْ نِصْفِ سِبْطِ مَنَسَّى فِي بَاشَانَ. ٦ 6
Then the people descended from Gershon were given, by the casting of lots, thirteen cities from the clans of the tribes of Issachar, Asher, Naphtali, and the half tribe of Manasseh in Bashan.
وَلِبَنِي مَرَارِي حَسَبَ عَشَائِرِهِمِ ٱثْنَتَا عَشَرَةَ مَدِينَةً مِنْ سِبْطِ رَأُوبَيْنَ وَمِنْ سِبْطِ جَادَ وَمِنْ سِبْطِ زَبُولُونَ. ٧ 7
The people who were descendants of Merari, clan by clan, received twelve cities from the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and Zebulun.
فَأَعْطَى بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ هَذِهِ ٱلْمُدُنَ وَمَسَارِحِهَا بِٱلْقُرْعَةِ، كَمَا أَمَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ عَلَى يَدِ مُوسَى. ٨ 8
So the people of Israel gave, by casting lots, these cities (including their pasturelands) to the Levites, just as Yahweh had commanded by the hand of Moses.
وَأَعْطَوْا مِنْ سِبْطِ بَنِي يَهُوذَا وَمِنْ سِبْطِ بَنِي شِمْعُونَ هَذِهِ ٱلْمُدُنَ ٱلْمُسَمَّاةَ بِأَسْمَائِهَا، ٩ 9
From the tribes of Judah and Simeon, they assigned land to the following cities, here listed by name.
فَكَانَتْ لِبَنِي هَارُونَ مِنْ عَشَائِرِ ٱلْقَهَاتِيِّينَ مِنْ بَنِي لَاوِي، لِأَنَّ ٱلْقُرْعَةَ ٱلْأُولَى كَانَتْ لَهُمْ: ١٠ 10
These cities were given to the descendants of Aaron, who were among the clans of the Kohathites, who in turn were from the tribe of Levi. For the first casting of lots had fallen to them.
وَأَعْطَوْهُمْ قَرْيَةَ أَرْبَعَ أَبِي عَنَاقٍ،هِيَ حَبْرُونَ، فِي جَبَلِ يَهُوذَا مَعَ مَسْرَحِهَا حَوَالَيْهَا. ١١ 11
The Israelites gave them Kiriath Arba (Arba had been the father of Anak), the same place as Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, with the pasturelands around it.
وَأَمَّا حَقْلُ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَضِيَاعُهَا فَأَعْطَوْهَا لِكَالَبَ بْنِ يَفُنَّةَ مُلْكًا لَهُ. ١٢ 12
But the fields of the city, including their villages, were already given to Caleb son of Jephunneh, as his possession.
وَأَعْطَوْا لِبَنِي هَارُونَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ مَدِينَةَ مَلْجَإِ ٱلْقَاتِلِ حَبْرُونَ مَعَ مَسَارِحِهَا، وَلِبْنَةَ وَمَسَارِحِهَا، ١٣ 13
To the descendants of Aaron the priest they gave Hebron with its pasturelands—which was a city of refuge for any who killed another unintentionally—and Libnah with its pasturelands,
وَيَتِّيرَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، وَأَشْتَمُوعَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، ١٤ 14

Ain with its pasturelands, Juttah with its pasturelands, and Beth Shemesh with its pasturelands. There were nine cities that were given from these two tribes.
وَمِنْ سِبْطِ بَنْيَامِينَ: جِبْعُونَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، وَجِبْعَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، ١٧ 17
From the tribe of Benjamin were given Gibeon with its pasturelands, Geba with its pasturelands,

Anathoth with its pasturelands, and Almon with its suburbs—four cities.
جَمِيعُ مُدُنِ بَنِي هَارُونَ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ ثَلَاثَ عَشْرَةَ مَدِينَةً مَعَ مَسَارِحِهَا. ١٩ 19
The cities given to the priests, the descendants of Aaron, were thirteen cities in all, including their pasturelands.
وَأَمَّا عَشَائِرُ بَنِي قَهَاتَ، ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ ٱلْبَاقِينَ مِنْ بَنِي قَهَاتَ، فَكَانَتْ مُدُنُ قُرْعَتِهِمْ مِنْ سِبْطِ أَفْرَايِمَ: ٢٠ 20
As for the rest of Kohathites who belong to the Kohathite clans of the Levites—they had cities given to them from the tribe of Ephraim by the casting of lots.
وَأَعْطَوْهُمْ شَكِيمَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، فِي جَبَلِ أَفْرَايِمَ مَدِينَةَ مَلْجَإِ ٱلْقَاتِلِ، وَجَازَرَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، ٢١ 21

وَمِنْ نِصْفِ سِبْطِ مَنَسَّى تَعْنَكَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، وَجَتَّ رِمُّونَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا. مَدِينَتَيْنِ ٱثْنَتَيْنِ. ٢٥ 25
From the half tribe of Manasseh, the clan of Kohath was given Taanach with its pasturelands and Gath Rimmon with its pasturelands—two cities.
كُلُّ ٱلْمُدُنِ عَشَرٌ مَعَ مَسَارِحِهَا لِعَشَائِرِ بَنِي قَهَاتَ ٱلْبَاقِينَ. ٢٦ 26
There were ten cities in all for the rest of the clans of the Kohathites, including their pasturelands.
وَلِبَنِي جَرْشُونَ مِنْ عَشَائِرِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ: مَدِينَةُ مَلْجَإِ ٱلْقَاتِلِ مِنْ نِصْفِ سِبْطِ مَنَسَّى جُولَانُ فِي بَاشَانَ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، وَبَعَشْتَرَةُ وَمَسْرَحَهَا، مَدِينَتَانِ ٱثْنَتَانِ. ٢٧ 27
From the half tribe of Manasseh, to clans of Gershon, these were other Levite clans, and they gave Golan in Bashan with its pasturelands—a city of refuge for anyone who killed another unintentionally, along with Be Eshterah with its pasturelands—two cities in all.

There were thirteen cities in all, out of the clans of Gershon, including their pasturelands.
وَلِعَشَائِرِ بَنِي مَرَارِي ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ ٱلْبَاقِينَ مِنْ سِبْطِ زَبُولُونَ يَقْنَعَامُ وَمَسْرَحُهَا، وَقَرْتَةُ وَمَسْرَحُهَا، ٣٤ 34

The clans of Merari were also given Heshbon with its pasturelands, and Jazer with its pasturelands. These were four cities in all.
فَجَمِيعُ ٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلَّتِي لِبَنِي مَرَارِي حَسَبَ عَشَائِرِهِمِ ٱلْبَاقِينَ مِنْ عَشَائِرِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ. وَكَانَتْ قُرْعَتُهُمُ ٱثْنَتَا عَشْرَةَ مَدِينَةً. ٤٠ 40
All these were the cities of the several clans of Merari, who were from the tribe of Levi—twelve cities in all were given to them by the casting of lots.
جَمِيعُ مُدُنِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ فِي وَسَطِ مُلْكِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ثَمَانٍ وَأَرْبَعُونَ مَدِينَةً مَعَ مَسَارِحِهَا. ٤١ 41
The cities of the Levites taken from the middle of the land possessed by the people of Israel were forty-eight cities, including their pasturelands.
كَانَتْ هَذِهِ ٱلْمُدُنُ مَدِينَةً مَدِينَةً مَعَ مَسَارِحِهَا حَوَالَيْهَا. هَكَذَا لِكُلِّ هَذِهِ ٱلْمُدُنِ. ٤٢ 42
These cities each had its surrounding pasturelands. It was this way with all these cities.
فَأَعْطَى ٱلرَّبُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ جَمِيعَ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَقْسَمَ أَنْ يُعْطِيَهَا لِآبَائِهِمْ فَٱمْتَلَكُوهَا وَسَكَنُوا بِهَا. ٤٣ 43
So Yahweh gave to Israel all the land that he swore to give to their ancestors. The Israelites took possession of it and settled there.
فَأَرَاحَهُمُ ٱلرَّبُّ حَوَالَيْهِمْ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا أَقْسَمَ لِآبَائِهِمْ، وَلَمْ يَقِفْ قُدَّامَهُمْ رَجُلٌ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَعْدَائِهِمْ، بَلْ دَفَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ جَمِيعَ أَعْدَائِهِمْ بِأَيْدِيهِمْ. ٤٤ 44
Then Yahweh gave them rest on every side, just as he had sworn to their ancestors. Not one of their enemies could defeat them. Yahweh gave all their enemies into their hand.
لَمْ تَسْقُطْ كَلِمَةٌ مِنْ جَمِيعِ ٱلْكَلَامِ ٱلصَّالِحِ ٱلَّذِي كَلَّمَ بِهِ ٱلرَّبُّ بَيْتَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، بَلِ ٱلْكُلُّ صَارَ. ٤٥ 45
Not one thing among all the good promises that Yahweh had spoken to the house of Israel failed to come true. All of them came to be.
