1 The portion falling to the tribe of the sons of Judah, by clans, was near the frontier of Edom, from the desert of Zin southwards to Kadesh in the south.
Ezek 47:19  Josh 14:2  Num 26:55-56  Num 33:36-37  Num 34:3-5 

2 Their southern frontier began at the tip of the Salt Sea, at the southerly bay;
Ezek 47:8  Ezek 47:18  Gen 14:3  Isa 11:15  Josh 3:16  Num 34:3 

3 it proceeded south of the Ascent of Scorpions, crossed Zin and came up to Kadesh-Barnea from the south; past Hezron, it went on to Addar and turned towards Karka;
Num 34:4  Judg 1:36  Gen 14:7  Num 20:1  Num 32:8 

4 the frontier then went on to Azmon, came out at the Torrent of Egypt and reached as far as the sea. This is to be your southern frontier.
Num 34:5  Josh 13:3  Exod 23:31  Gen 15:18 

5 The eastern frontier was the Salt Sea as far as the mouth of the Jordan.
Num 34:12  Josh 18:15-19  Num 34:10 

6 The northern boundary began at the bay at the mouth of the Jordan. The boundary went up to Beth-Hoglah, passed north of Beth-ha-Arabah and went on to the Stone of Bohan son of Reuben.
Josh 18:17  Josh 18:19-21 

7 The boundary then went on to Debir from the Vale of Achor and turned north towards the stone circle opposite the Ascent of Adummim, which is south of the Torrent; the boundary went on to the Waters of En-Shemesh and came out at En-Rogel.
1Kgs 1:9  2Sam 17:17  Josh 7:26  Hos 2:5  Isa 65:10  Josh 4:19  Josh 5:9-10 

8 It then went back up the Valley of Hinnom, coming from the south to the flank of the Jebusite -- that is, Jerusalem -- and climbed to the crest of the mountain barring the Valley of Hinnom to the west, at the northern end of the Valley of the Rephaim.
Josh 18:16  Josh 15:63  Josh 18:28  Judg 19:10  2Kgs 23:10  Judg 1:21  2Chr 28:3 

9 From the mountain top, the boundary curved round to the spring of the Waters of Nephtoah, went on to the towns of Mount Ephron and then turned towards Baalah -- that is, Kiriath-Jearim.
1Chr 13:6  Josh 18:15  Judg 18:12  2Sam 6:2  Josh 9:17 

10 From Baalah, the boundary curved westwards to the highlands of Seir, skirted the northern slope of Mount Jearim -- that is, Chesalon -- went down to Beth-Shemesh and through Timnah,
Judg 14:1  1Sam 6:12-21  Gen 38:12-13  Josh 15:57  Judg 14:5 

11 came out on the northern flank of Ekron, turned towards Shikkeron and, passing through the highlands of Baalah, came out at Jabneel, and reached as far as the sea.
1Sam 5:10  1Sam 7:14  2Kgs 1:2-3  2Kgs 1:6  2Kgs 1:16  Josh 15:45  Josh 19:43-44 

12 The western boundary was the Great Sea itself. Such was the frontier surrounding the sons of Judah, by clans.
Ezek 47:20  Josh 15:47  Num 34:6-7  Deut 11:24 

13 Caleb son of Jephunneh was given a share within that of the sons of Judah, in accordance with Yahweh's order to Joshua: Kiriath-Arba, the town of the father of Anak -- that is, Hebron.
Deut 1:34-36  Josh 14:6-15  Num 13:30  Num 14:23-24 

14 Caleb drove out the three sons of Anak: Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai, descended from Anak.
Judg 1:10  Judg 1:20  Josh 11:21  Josh 10:36-37  Num 13:22-23  Num 13:33 

15 From there he marched on the inhabitants of Debir; Debir in olden days was called Kiriath-Sepher.
Josh 10:38  Josh 10:3  Judg 1:11-13 

16 Caleb then said, 'To the man who attacks and takes Kiriath-Sepher, I shall give my daughter Achsah as wife.'
Judg 1:6  Judg 1:12-13 

17 The man who captured it was Othniel son of Kenaz, brother of Caleb, who gave him his daughter Achsah as wife.
Judg 1:13  Judg 3:9  Josh 14:6  Judg 3:11  1Chr 2:49  Num 32:12 

18 When she arrived, he urged her to ask her father for arable land, but when she alighted from the donkey and Caleb asked her, 'What is the matter?'
1Sam 25:23  Gen 24:64 

19 she said to him, 'Grant me a blessing! As the land you have given me is the Negeb, give me springs of water too!' So Caleb gave her what she wanted, the upper springs and the lower springs.
1Sam 25:27  2Cor 9:5  Deut 33:7  Gen 33:11  Judg 1:14-15 

20 Such was the heritage of the tribe of the sons of Judah, by clans.
