Read Joshua 18
Division of the rest of the land.
Seven tribes of Israel out of twelve has not received the land. But there was no reason explained in this chapter.
Joshua summoned leaders from the seven tribe to survey the land and report back. The tribe of Levi was exempted because they worked for priestly service of the Lord, and “The Lord is their inheritance.” (v.7)
After leaders of the seven tribes surveyed, Joshua distributed the land to them by lot.
