Joshua 19

1 And the second lot came forth to Simeon, even for the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families: and their inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of Judah.

2 And they had in their inheritance Beersheba, and Sheba, and Moladah,

3 And Hazarshual, and Balah, and Azem,

4 And Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah,

5 And Ziklag, and Bethmarcaboth, and Hazarsusah,

6 And Bethlebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their villages:

7 Ain, Remmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their villages:

8 And all the villages that were round about these cities to Baalathbeer, Ramath of the south. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families.

9 Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them.

10 And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun according to their families: and the border of their inheritance was unto Sarid:

11 And their border went up toward the sea, and Maralah, and reached to Dabbasheth, and reached to the river that is before Jokneam;

12 And turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the border of Chislothtabor, and then goeth out to Daberath, and goeth up to Japhia,

13 And from thence passeth on along on the east to Gittahhepher, to Ittahkazin, and goeth out to Remmonmethoar to Neah;

14 And the border compasseth it on the north side to Hannathon: and the outgoings thereof are in the valley of Jiphthahel:

15 And Kattath, and Nahallal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and Bethlehem: twelve cities with their villages.

16 This is the inheritance of the children of Zebulun according to their families, these cities with their villages.

17 And the fourth lot came out to Issachar, for the children of Issachar according to their families.

18 And their border was toward Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and Shunem,

19 And Haphraim, and Shihon, and Anaharath,

20 And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,

21 And Remeth, and Engannim, and Enhaddah, and Bethpazzez;

22 And the coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and Bethshemesh; and the outgoings of their border were at Jordan: sixteen cities with their villages.

23 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Issachar according to their families, the cities and their villages.

24 And the fifth lot came out for the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families.

25 And their border was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and Achshaph,

26 And Alammelech, and Amad, and Misheal; and reacheth to Carmel westward, and to Shihorlibnath;

27 And turneth toward the sunrising to Bethdagon, and reacheth to Zebulun, and to the valley of Jiphthahel toward the north side of Bethemek, and Neiel, and goeth out to Cabul on the left hand,

28 And Hebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, even unto great Zidon;

29 And then the coast turneth to Ramah, and to the strong city Tyre; and the coast turneth to Hosah; and the outgoings thereof are at the sea from the coast to Achzib:

30 Ummah also, and Aphek, and Rehob: twenty and two cities with their villages.

31 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families, these cities with their villages.

32 The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, even for the children of Naphtali according to their families.

33 And their coast was from Heleph, from Allon to Zaanannim, and Adami, Nekeb, and Jabneel, unto Lakum; and the outgoings thereof were at Jordan:

34 And then the coast turneth westward to Aznothtabor, and goeth out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the south side, and reacheth to Asher on the west side, and to Judah upon Jordan toward the sunrising.

35 And the fenced cities are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath, and Chinnereth,

36 And Adamah, and Ramah, and Hazor,

37 And Kedesh, and Edrei, and Enhazor,

38 And Iron, and Migdalel, Horem, and Bethanath, and Bethshemesh; nineteen cities with their villages.

39 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Naphtali according to their families, the cities and their villages.

40 And the seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families.

41 And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Irshemesh,

42 And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,

43 And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron,

44 And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,

45 And Jehud, and Beneberak, and Gathrimmon,

46 And Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho.

47 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.

48 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages.

49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:

50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.

  1. 50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein

    I too am building my temple to dwelt in. Everyday God makes me stronger and He helps clean my spiritual rooms.

  2. 47 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.

    48 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages.

  3. Verse 9 MSG says “The inheritance of Simeon came out of the share of Judah, because Judah’s portion turned out to be more than they needed. That’s how the people of Simeon came to get their lot from within Judah’s portion.” This made me think of one of our Project Prayer Card prayers for
    “Financial Goals to be Exceeded”. Exceeded, more than we need and then we get to share it with everyone as we (POFW) GROW. Verse 47 lets us know that there will still be battles to fight and things to be driven out; but, we will take possession and GROW. As verse 50 says it will all be in accordance/obedience to God’s word, God’s timing and God’s will.

  4. 8-9. This is the inheritance of the tribe of Simeon according to its clans. The inheritance of Simeon came out of the share of Judah, because Judah’s portion turned out to be more than they needed. That’s how the people of Simeon came to get their lot from within Judah’s portion. MSG

    Once again we see where praise (Judah) will get you MORE.

    With praise in your heart, there’s no room for greed. They didn’t try to keep more than they could manage, but were willing to share the abundance of God’s blessings.

  5. Jehovah-Jireh, God will provide. One of the many great things about God, is he is not short on blessings. Everything belongs to him, so it’s not hard thing for God to bless you overnight with an extra $1000. It’s no difficult task for God to bless you with a new house, car or higher paying job. It’s also not impossible for God to bless POFW with the funds needed to payoof our current and new building. We cannot and must not put a limit on what God can do. Don’t cut your blessing short, by limiting your faith in God. If he said it, he will do it.

  6. 49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:

    50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

  7. 47 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.

    The coast given to them was too little. So, instead of complaining about it they brandished their swords and took what they needed. Our GOD is a God of endless resources and HE will supply what we need. Usually we have to do the work. GOD will give you the desires of your heart, but are you willing to work for it?

  8. ILove to Grow in the Word

    51These are the territories that Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the tribal leaders allocated as grants of land to the tribes of Israel by casting sacred lots in the presence of the lord at the entrance of the Tabernacle at Shiloh. So the division of the land was completed.

    These lands and boundaries were given to the children of Israel by God himself. The Lord takes pleasure in his people and it is the will of God to take his promises by force from the enemy.

  9. What is an inheritance? Is it simply the collection of things after someone dies? Proverbs 13:22 states: “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous.” What are we preparing to leave our children’s children; a house, car, bank accounts or maybe something with a little more substance? In Luke 12: 13-15 Someone out of the crowd said, “Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance.” He replied, “Mister, what makes you think it’s any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?” Speaking to the people, he went on, “Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot.”

    So, what will our life be defined by?

  10. 9 Their allocation of land came from part of what had been given to Judah because Judah’s territory was too large for them. So the tribe of Simeon received an allocation within the territory of Judah. (NLT)

    Judah had more than they even needed – my God is Jehovah Jireh! So praise gets you an abundance of blessings and having an abundance of blessings give you the opportunity to be a blessing… I think it’s time to praise!

  11. 51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.
    Finally everyone was able to receive their inheritance and their blessing from the Lord. No one was left out or ignored. It even seemed that some tribes shared a inheritance but no one went without. if we wholeheartedly follow the lord and give ourselves to pursuing and possessing our Promised Land there will be no one who was left out of the blessings and the opportunities that God will pour out! Now everyone will receive their blessing!

  12. 49 After all the land was divided among the tribes, the Israelites gave a piece of land to Joshua as his allocation.

  13. Blessed the Lord Oh my soul and All that’s withing me Praise His Holy Name!!!!!

    9′ Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them.

    Praise will always takes You further, makes you feeling better, and keeps you In Gods Glory .

  14. Joshua 19:49 When they had finished dividing the land into its allotted portions the Israelite gave Joshua son of nun an inheritance among them as the Lord had commanded. They gave him the town he asked for Timnath Sera in the Hill Country of Ephraim. And he built up the town and settled there. There are the territories that Eleazar the priest Joshua son of nun and the heads of the tribal clans of Israel assigned by lot at Shiloh in the presence of the Lord at the entrance to the tent of meeting. And so they finished dividing the land.

  15. BLESSING YOUR LEADER

    49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:
    50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

    Often in our society, people are criticized for blessing their leader. Respect and honor have been abused by many, and unfortunately that abuse gets more publicity than the sincere service of servants. There are 2 key points that I see displayed here in chapter 19.

    1. Joshua served the people pure hearted, no hidden agenda, no lofty demands and no guarantee of return. He gave of himself to the work of GOD (First). When Joshua finished dividing the land, he had nothing. It is unwise to serve the LORD with high demands and expectations of what you should receive in return.

    2. The people honored their Leader. They recognized that without the courage and Leadership of Joshua that they would still be wondering around that same mountain. The people Blessed Joshua from what they were Blessed with.

    iPray JESUS helps us as servant Leaders to recognize the value of this principal of Leadership and Honoring.

  16. 49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:

    50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

    51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.

    Joshua took care of the people first and in return the people took care of him. In ministry we often find ourselves sacrificing to make sure others needs are met. God doesn’t forget or disregard our needs. Many times our needs are met when we pour into others. Take care of Gods people and he will take care of you.

  17. 50 In obedience to God’s word, they gave him the city which he had requested, Timnath Serah in the hill country of Ephraim. He rebuilt the city and settled there. MSG
    In our obedience God has given POFW the city of FORT WORTH!!!

  18. 50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

    51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.

    There is no limit to what God can do. He will never give me more than I can handle. The blessings are coming and I have to remember that it is in God’s time not mine. Praise and glory be unto God. Like the children were given their inheritance, I to will receive my inheritance and blessing from God. Thank you Jesus for being my savior and Lord…………Amen!!!

  19. 49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:

    50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

    Ask and yes shall receive.

  20. Joshua 19:1 &9 (NLT)
    1) The second allotment of land went to the clans of the tribe of Simeon. Their homeland was surrounded by Judah’s territory.
    9) Their allotment of land came from part of what had been given to Judah because Judah’s territory was too large for them. So the tribe of Simeon received an allotment within the territory of Judah.

    Simeon means – he has heard, God has heard, God is listening.
    Judah means – Praise

    So the tribe of “God is listening” received an allotment within the territory of “Praise.”
    When we give God the Praise that is due unto His Name, He will Hear our cries and prayers and help and deliver us in our time of need.

    So thankful God Hears our prayers. His Praise shall be continually in my mouth !

  21. 49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:

    50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

    51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country.

    Not only did God allow Joshua to be blessed , he gave him what he asked! The children of Israel, were probably all to happy to bless him, God new what he needed and when, his long suffering, and obedience and submission earned him the favor of God and the obedience of the children if isreal, not to mention the exact dwelling place he wanted.
    WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE! Seems like he had their permission!

  22. 49 When they had finished dividing the land into its allotted portions, the Israelites gave Joshua son of Nun an inheritance among them, 50 as the Lord had commanded. They gave him the town he asked for—Timnath Serah[d] in the hill country of Ephraim. And he built up the town and settled there. (NIV)

    Once we take on our hands the city of Fort Worth, what will we do next?

  23. 9 Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them.

    If we will put praise into practice regarding every situation, the outcome will be more than we can handle, and we will have plenty to share with us.

  24. 47 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.

    48 This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages.

    49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:

    50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

  25. 51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country. God always provides.

  26. 50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein

  27. 49 When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:
    50 According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.

    Bishop Foster taught last night on position, permission and the growth that comes beyond., and it make me apply it to this portion of scripture here. The man of God – the shepherd or pastor- serves. I notice here that Joshua did not take what he wanted first, then divide the land to the tribes, rather he divided to the tribes first, then the children of Israel gave unto him the city of his choice. By this time the people had given Joshua permission to lead them. But even with this permission, he continued to serve them and in the end received a city of HIS choosing. It wasn’t given by lot, but by choice. What a reward for all his labor so for the kingdom of God. Pastor teaches us to buy into the vision God gives him for POFW, and God will bless you later with the things you desire, according to his will for your life that is!

  28. Joshua 19:9 (Message)
    9 The inheritance of Simeon came out of the share of Judah, because Judah’s portion turned out to be more than they needed. That’s how the people of Simeon came to get their lot from within Judah’s portion.

    When you live a lifestyle of praise you will always have more than enough. Praise doesn’t just bless you but it also makes way for you to bless those around you.

  29. “Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them.” The word of God (Jesus) identified both how and why the boundaries changed. The word of God (Judge) also explains many other events or facts such as; baptism, what is required to go to heaven, and even how to talk to another person. The issue is there are many that will not read, or will only receive what they want. Dear God, help us acknowledge and receive all of your word, which we all will be judge from, in Jesus name. God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  30. “According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.” The children of Israel regardless of anything that may have transpired, which includes past events; showed obedience to the Lord. When it all is finally over the most important thing will be, is if we were obedient to the Lord and his word. God help us examine and see ourselves as you do, in Jesus name.

  31. 47 And the coast of the children of Dan went out too little for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father.

    Is it a matter of faith that some churches are given multi million complexes with little or no sacrifice and some are left to work and fundraiser and sacrilege to build or buy the church buildings?

    The word says that it’s rains over the just and the unjust. Matt 5:45 But it also says, that the kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force. Matt 11:12

    Even though God delights in you being just, it doesn’t take away the blessings from the unjust and it doesn’t shelter you from the chaos this life brings. You might be satisfied with the little you have, but I want all the God has for me, and I am willing to fight for it.

  32. 51 These are the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country

    You are noy forgotten. The Lord will fulfill his word and promise and give the inheritance or promise to his children. All we have to do is be obedient and tarry.

  33. “When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them: According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked, even Timnath–serah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein.”
    ‭‭Joshua‬ ‭19:49-50‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  34. 51 These are the territories that Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the tribal leaders allocated as grants of land to the tribes of Israel by casting sacred lots in the presence of the LORD at the entrance of the Tabernaclef at Shiloh. So the division of the land was completed.

    In the presence of the Lord. We should always pray and make decisions with God’s guidance. Do all things in God’s presence.

  35. “Out of the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them.”
    ‭‭Joshua‬ ‭19:9‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    If we are constantly praising the Lord then it can overtake our lives so that everything we do is effected by he praise. Then the other people who are around will be consumed by the praisies
    Of The Lord.

  36. vs 9. Out of the portion of the children of Ju’-dah was the inheritance of the children of Sim’-e-on: for the part of the children of Ju’-dah was too much for them: therefore the children of Sim’-e-on had their inheritance within the inheritance of them. Jesus you are the lifter of my head!!
