Read Joshua 19

Overview

Division of the rest of the land.  

When six remaining tribes received the land, the distribution of the land was completed to all tribes of Israel but the tribe of Levites. Each tribe, clan by clan, got the land by lot.

When they finished dividing the land into its allotted portion, the Israelite gave Joshua inheritance among them.

The distribution of the land was done by lot led by selected leaders of the Israelites, Eleazar the priest, Joshua, and the heads of the tribal clans.  Casting a lot was their way to express their faith in God.

This map explains each tribe’s allotment.
