Bible study 205 – Joshua 19

The remaining six tribes get their lands: Simeon, Zebulun, Issachar, Asher, Naphtali, and Dan. Below is one map of the twelve tribes by me, and one from the Oxford Bible. As I noted in chapter 13, the two maps are different; mine is based on my own interpretation of the text, while Oxfords’ is probably more technically accurate.

Joshua 19:40
The seventh lot came out from the tribe of Dan, according to its families.

Chapter_19

There are almost no fixed geographical locations to determine most of these borders, and they are therefore largely determined relative to each other. Ekron is explicitly stated to be a part of Dan, contradicting chapter 15 where it was given to Judah. I have therefore made Dan overlapping parts of Judah.
