Joshua 13:5-6

Context
13:5 the territory of Byblos 1  and all Lebanon to the east, from Baal Gad below Mount Hermon to Lebo Hamath. 2  13:6 I will drive out before the Israelites all who live in the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth Maim, 3  all the Sidonians; you be sure to parcel it out to Israel as I instructed you.” 4 

1 tn Heb “and the land of the Gebalites.”

2 tn Or “the entrance to Hamath.” Most modern translations take the phrase “Lebo Hamath” to be a proper name, but often provide a note with the alternative, where “Hamath” is the proper name and לְבוֹא (lÿvo’) is taken to mean “entrance to.”

3 tn The meaning of the Hebrew name “Misrephoth Maim” is perhaps “lime-kilns by the water” (see HALOT 2:641).

4 tn Heb “only you, assign it by lots to Israel as an inheritance as I commanded you.”
