Joshua 18:7

Context
18:7 But the Levites will not have an allotted portion among you, for their inheritance is to serve the Lord. 4  Gad, Reuben, and the half-tribe of Manasseh have already received their allotted land 5  east of the Jordan which Moses the Lord’s servant assigned them.”

3 tn Or “as he promised”; Heb “as he spoke to.”

sn For the background of this observation, see Deut 18:1-2.
