81 - Kings defeated and Caleb is granted his portion

Kathleen's thoughts

Judges Judah gave Hebron to Caleb, just as Moses had promised. Then Caleb drove out the three sons of Anak who lived there. This is also found in Joshua 15: 13-19
Caleb also promised this "I will give my daughter Aschsah as a wife to the one who strikes down and captures Kiriath-sepher" So Othniel son of Caleb's brother Kenaz, captured it, and Caleb gave his daughter to Ashsah to him as a wife.

Judges 1:16 The descendants of the Kenite, Moses' father in-law had gone up with the men of Judah from the City of Palms to the wilderness of Judah, which was in the Negev of Arad.
They went to live among the people.

Joshua 14: 4 The descendants of Joseph became two tribes, Manesseh and Ephraim.

Judah's portion. 15: 1-12 The allotment for this tribe and by their clans was in the southernmost region, south of the wilderness of Zin to the border of Edom.


Sabbatical year definition

Every seventh year, during which the land, according to the law of Moses, had to remain uncultivated (Lev. 25:2-7; comp. Ex.23:10, 11, 12; Lev. 26:34, 35). Whatever grew of itself during that year was not for the owner of the land, but for the poor and the stranger and the beasts of the field. All debts, except thoseof foreigners, were to be remitted (Deut. 15:1-11). There is little notice of the observance of this year in Biblical history. It appears to have been much neglected (2 Chr. 36:20, 21).
Joshua 15: 20-47 Is all about the cities of Judah

Joshua 1:8 This book of instruction must not depart from your mouth; you are to recite it day and night, so that you may carefully observe everything written in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in whatever you do"
