Surveyors are sent to divide the rest of the land into seven tribes. The lot of Benjamin.

[1] And all the children of Israel assembled together in Silo, and there they set up the tabernacle of the testimony, and the land was subdued before them.
Congregatique sunt omnes filii Israel in Silo, ibique fixerunt tabernaculum testimonii, et fuit eis terra subjecta.

[2] But there remained seven tribes of the children of Israel, which as yet had not received their possessions.
Remanserant autem filiorum Israel septem tribus, quae necdum acceperant possessiones suas.

[3] And Josue said to them: How long are you indolent and slack, and go not in to possess the land which the Lord the God of your fathers hath given you?
Ad quos Josue ait : Usquequo marcetis ignavia, et non intratis ad possidendam terram, quam Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum dedit vobis?

[4] Choose of every tribe three men, that I may send them, and they may go and compass the land, and mark it out according to the number of each multitude: and bring back to me what they have marked out.
Eligite de singulis tribubus ternos viros, ut mittam eos, et pergant atque circumeant terram, et describant eam juxta numerum uniuscujusque multitudinis : referantque ad me quod descripserint.

[5] Divide to yourselves the land into seven parts: let Juda be in his bounds on the south side, and the house of Joseph on the north.
Dividite vobis terram in septem partes : Judas sit in terminis suis ab australi plaga, et domus Joseph ab aquilone.

[6] The land in the midst between these mark ye out into seven parts; and you shall come hither to me, that I may cast lots for you before the Lord your God.
Mediam inter hos terram in septem partes describite : et huc venietis ad me, ut coram Domino Deo vestro mittam vobis hic sortem :

[7] For the Levites have no part among you, but the priesthood of the Lord is their inheritance. And Gad and Ruben, and the half tribe of Manasses have already received their possessions beyond the Jordan eastward: which Moses the servant of the Lord gave them.
quia non est inter vos pars Levitarum, sed sacerdotium Domini est eorum haereditas. Gad autem et Ruben, et dimidia tribus Manasse, jam acceperant possessiones suas trans Jordanem ad orientalem plagam : quas dedit eis Moyses famulus Domini.

[8] And when the men were risen up, to go to mark out the land, Josue commanded them, saying: Go round the land and mark it out, and return to me: that I may cast lots for you before the Lord in Silo.
Cumque surrexissent viri, ut pergerent ad describendam terram, praecepit eis Josue, dicens : Circuite terram, et describite eam, ac revertimini ad me : ut hic coram Domino, in Silo, mittam vobis sortem.

[9] So they went: and surveying it divided it into seven parts, writing them down in a book. And they returned to Josue, to the camp in Silo.
Itaque perrexerunt : et lustrantes eam, in septem partes diviserunt, scribentes in volumine. Reversique sunt ad Josue in castra Silo.

[10] And he cast lots before the Lord in Silo, and divided the land to the children of Israel into seven parts.
Qui misit sortes coram Domino in Silo, divisitque terram filiis Israel in septem partes.

[11] And first came up the lot of the children of Benjamin by their families, to possess the land between the children of Juda, and the children of Joseph.
Et ascendit sors prima filiorum Benjamin per familias suas, ut possiderent terram inter filios Juda et filios Joseph.

[12] And their border northward was from the Jordan: going along by the side of Jericho on the north side, and thence going up westward to the mountains, and reaching to the wilderness of Bethaven,
Fuitque terminus eorum contra aquilonem a Jordane : pergens juxta latus Jericho septentrionalis plagae, et inde contra occidentem ad montana conscendens et perveniens ad solitudinem Bethaven,

[13] And passing along southward by Luza, the same is Bethel: and it goeth down into Ataroth-addar to the mountain, that is on the south of the nether Beth-horon.
atque pertransiens juxta Luzam ad meridiem, ipsa est Bethel : descenditque in Ataroth Addar in montem qui est ad meridiem Beth-horon inferioris :

[14] And it bendeth thence going round towards the sea, south of the mountain that looketh towards Beth-horon to the southwest: and the outgoings thereof are into Cariathbaal, which is called also Cariathiarim, a city of the children of Juda. This is their coast towards the sea, westward.
et inclinatur circuiens contra mare ad meridiem montis qui respicit Beth-horon contra Africum : suntque exitus ejus in Cariath-baal, quae vocatur et Cariathiarim, urbem filiorum Juda. Haec est plaga contra mare, ad occidentem.

[15] But on the south side the border goeth out from part of Cariathiarim towards the sea, and cometh to the fountain of the waters of Nephtoa.
A meridie autem ex parte Cariathiarim egreditur terminus contra mare, et pervenit usque ad fontem aquarum Nephtoa.

[16] And it goeth down to that part of the mountain that looketh on the valley of the children of Ennom: and is over against the north quarter in the furthermost part of the valley of Raphaim, and it goeth down into Geennom (that is the valley of Ennom) by the side of the Jebusite to the south: and cometh to the fountain of Rogel,
Descenditque in partem montis, qui respicit vallem filiorum Ennom : et est contra septentrionalem plagam in extrema parte vallis Raphaim. Descenditque in Geennom ( id est, vallem Ennom) juxta latus Jebusaei ad austrum : et pervenit ad fontem Rogel,

[17] Passing thence to the north, and going out to Ensemes, that is to say, the fountain of the sue:
transiens ad aquilonem, et egrediens ad Ensemes, id est, fontem solis :

[18] And it passeth along to the hills that are over against the ascent of Adommim: and it goeth down to Abenboen, that is, the stone of Boen the son of Ruben: and it passeth on the north side to the champaign countries; and goeth down into the plain,
et 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,

[19] And it passeth by Bethhagla northward: and the outgoings thereof are towards the north of the most salt sea at the south end of the Jordan:
et praetergreditur contra aquilonem Beth Hagla : suntque exitus ejus contra linguam maris salsissimi ab aquilone in fine Jordanis ad australem plagam :

[20] Which is the border of it on the east side. This is the possession of the children of Benjamin by their borders round about, and their families.
qui est terminus illius ab oriente. Haec est possessio filiorum Benjamin per terminos suos in circuitu, et familias suas.

[21] And their cities were, Jericho and Bethhagla and Vale-Casis,
Fueruntque civitates ejus, Jericho et Beth Hagla et vallis Casis,

[22] Betharaba and Samaraim and Bethel,
Beth Araba et Samaraim et Bethel

[23] And Avim and Aphara and Ophera,
et Avim et Aphara et Ophera,

[24] The town Emona and Ophni and Gabee: twelve cities, and their villages.
villa Emona et Ophni et Gabee : civitates duodecim, et villae earum.

[25] Gabam and Rama and Beroth,
Gabaon et Rama et Beroth,

[26] And Mesphe, and Caphara, and Amosa,
et Mesphe et Caphara, et Amosa

[27] And Recem, Jarephel and Tharela,
et Recem, Jarephel et Tharela,

[28] And Sela, Eleph and Jebus, which is Jerusalem, Gabaath and Cariath: fourteen cities, and their villages. This is the possession of the children of Benjamin by their families.
et Sela, Eleph, et Jebus, quae est Jerusalem, Gabaath et Cariath : civitates quatuordecim, et villae earum. Haec est possessio filiorum Benjamin juxta familias suas.
