Joshua 19:10-16

Zebulun’s Tribal Lands

19:10 The third lot belonged to the tribe of Zebulun 1  by its clans. The border of their territory 2  extended to Sarid. 19:11 Their border went up westward to Maralah and touched Dabbesheth and the valley near 3  Jokneam. 19:12 From Sarid it turned eastward 4  to the territory of Kisloth Tabor, extended to Daberath, and went up to Japhia. 19:13 From there it crossed eastward to Gath Hepher and Eth Kazin and extended to Rimmon, turning toward Neah. 19:14 It then turned on the north to Hannathon and ended at the Valley of Iphtah El. 19:15 Their territory included Kattah, Nahalal, Shimron, Idalah, and Bethlehem; 5  in all they had twelve cities and their towns. 6  19:16 This was the land assigned to the tribe of Zebulun 7  by its clans, including these cities and their towns.
