Joshua 19:32-39

Naphtali’s Tribal Lands

19:32 The sixth lot belonged to the tribe of Naphtali 1  by its clans. 19:33 Their border started at Heleph and the oak of Zaanannim, went to Adami Nekeb, Jabneel and on to Lakkum, 2  and ended at the Jordan River. 3  19:34 It turned westward to Aznoth Tabor, extended from there to Hukok, touched Zebulun on the south, Asher on the west, and the Jordan 4  on the east. 19:35 The fortified cities included Ziddim, Zer, Hammath, Rakkath, Kinnereth, 19:36 Adamah, Ramah, Hazor, 5  19:37 Kedesh, Edrei, En Hazor, 19:38 Yiron, 6  Migdal El, Horem, Beth Anath, and Beth Shemesh. In all they had 7  nineteen cities and their towns. 19:39 This was the land assigned to the tribe of Naphtali 8  by its clans, including the cities and their towns.

1 tn Heb “the sixth lot came out for the sons of Naphtali, for the sons of Naphtali.”

2 tn Heb “and their border was from Heleph, from the oak of Zaanannim, and Adami Nekeb, and Jabneel to Lakkum.”

3 tn The word “River” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied for clarity.

4 tc The MT reads “Judah, the Jordan”; the LXX omits “Judah.” Perhaps there was a town named Judah, distinct from the tribe of Judah, located near the northern end of the Jordan.

5 map For location see Map1 D2; Map2 D3; Map3 A2; Map4 C1.

6 sn Instead of Yiron some English translations read Iron.

7 tn The words “in all they had” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

8 tn Heb “this was the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Naphtali.”
