Joshua 15:12-57

15:12 And the western border was the Great Sea and its coast. This is the border of the children of Judah all around according to their families.
15:13 And to Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a portion in the midst of the children of Judah according to the commandment of Jehovah to Joshua, that is, Kiriath-arba (Arba was the father of Anak); this is Hebron.
15:14 And Caleb drove out the three sons of Anak from there: Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the children of Anak.
15:15 And he went up from there to the inhabitants of Debir. (Now the name of Debir was formerly Kiriath-sepher.)
15:16 And Caleb said, Whoever strikes Kiriath-sepher and takes it, I will give to him Achsah my daughter as wife.
15:17 Then Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s brother, took it; and he gave him Achsah his daughter as wife.
15:18 And when she came to him, she urged him to ask her father for a field. And she alighted from her donkey, and Caleb said to her, What do you want?
15:19 And she said, Give me a blessing, for you have given me land in the Negev; give me also springs of water. So he gave her the upper springs and the lower springs.
