82 - Division of the land of the 12 tribes

Kathleen's thoughts

Joshua 15,16,1718,19

1 Chronicles 4:28-33

And so the 12 tribes take ownership of their lands that were allotted to them. It's a interesting read and following on the map. It must have been quite a journey walking to their land but I could also seem them being excited in knowing that their journey out of the land of Egypt to the promised land of milk and honey is finally over and they could now rejoice and be glad in it.

Joshua 15:63. But the descendants of Judah could not drive out the Jebusites who lived in Jerusalem. So the Jebusites live in Jerusalem among the descendants of Judah to this day. Also found in Judges 1:21 Th the same time the Benjaminites did not drive out the Jebusites who were living in Jerusalem. The Jebusites have lived among the Benjaminites in Jerusalem to this day.

The Jebusites are the descendnats of Noah's son Ham.(This is an interesting read!)

The cities of Judah Joshua 15: 48-63

Then the portion of Joseph's sons Ephraim and Manesseh

Joshua 17: 14-18 Josephs family want a larger portion and spoke to Joshua and he told them to the forest and clear an area for yourselves there in the land of the Perizzites and the Rephaim.

Joshua 18:1 The tabernacle is set up in Shiloh.

Joshua 18: 2-10 The remainder of the land is given.

At the end of this reading a very interesting thought was given. Many of us when reading the scriptures of the division and allotment of land we sort of skip through it without thought and then they give this scripture from 2 Timothy 3: 16.(KJ) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness...17 That the man of god may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Food for thought!

Blessings for a beautiful day
