                                                                                                                                   [Return to 1Chr. 4:33]

מֵחֶבֶל בְּנֵי יְהוּדָה נַחֲלַת בְּנֵי שִׁמְעוֹן כִּי־הָיָה חֵלֶק בְּנֵי־יְהוּדָה רַב מֵהֶם וַיִּנְחֲלוּ בְנֵי־שִׁמְעוֹן בְּתוֹךְ   19:9

נַחֲלָתָם׃

Josh. 19:9   From the portion of the children of Judah was the inheritance of the children of Simeon, for the portion of the children of Judah was too much for them so the children of Simeon received inheritance in the middle of their inheritance.

וַיַּעַל הַגּוֹרָל הַשְּׁלִישִׁי לִבְנֵי זְבוּלֻן לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם וַיְהִי גְּבוּל נַחֲלָתָם עַד־שָׂרִיד׃   19:10

Josh. 19:10   And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun according to their families, and the territory of their inheritance was as far as Sarid.

וּמִשָּׁם עָבַר קֵדְמָה מִזְרָחָה גִּתָּה חֵפֶר עִתָּה קָצִין וְיָצָא רִמּוֹן הַמְּתֹאָר הַנֵּעָה׃   19:13

Josh. 19:13   And from there it crossed toward the east to Gath-hepher, to Eth-kazin, and would come out of Rimmon-methoar to Neah.

וְנָסַב אֹתוֹ הַגְּבוּל מִצְּפוֹן חַנָּתֹן וְהָיוּ תֹּצְאֹתָיו גֵּי יִפְתַּח־אֵל׃   19:14

Josh. 19:15   and Kattath and Nahalal and Shimron and Idalah and Beth-lehem; twelve cities plus their villages.

עֶשְׂרֵה וְחַצְרֵיהֶן׃

Josh. 19:22   and the border would reach into Tabor and to Shahazimah and Beth-shemesh, and the extensions of their border would be the Jordan; sixteen cities plus their villages.

The name of the city called Shahazimah is apparently misspelled in the Hebrew.  The alleged correct spelling is in the brackets.

כָּבוּל מִשְּׂמֹאל׃
