49When they had made an end of dividing the land as an inheritance according to their borders, the children of Israel gave an inheritance among them to Joshua the son of Nun. 50According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked for, #Josh. 24:30Timnath #1 Chr. 7:24Serah in the mountains of Ephraim; and he built the city and dwelt in it.
51#Num. 34:17Josh. 14:1These were the inheritances which Eleazar the priest, Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel divided as an inheritance by lot #Josh. 18:110in Shiloh before the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of meeting.
