Joshua 21:35-22:9

21:35 Dimnah with its pasture lands, Nahalal with its pasture lands: four cities.21:36 And out of the tribe of Reuben: Bezer with its pasture lands and Jahaz with its pasture lands,21:37 Kedemoth with its pasture lands and Mephaath with its pasture lands: four cities.21:38 And out of the tribe of Gad: Ramoth in Gilead with its pasture lands, the city of refuge for the manslayer; and Mahanaim with its pasture lands,21:39 Heshbon with its pasture lands, Jazer with its pasture lands: four cities in all.21:40 These were all the cities for the children of Merari according to their families, which remained of the families of the Levites; and their lot was twelve cities.21:41 All the cities of the Levites in the midst of the possession of the children of Israel were forty-eight cities with their pasture lands.21:42 Each of these cities had its pasture lands around it; so it was with all these cities.21:43 So Jehovah gave Israel all the land that He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they possessed it and dwelt in it.21:44 And Jehovah gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers. And no one among all their enemies could stand before them; Jehovah delivered all their enemies into their hand.21:45 Not a word failed of all the good things that Jehovah had spoken to the house of Israel; all came to pass.22:1 Then Joshua called the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh.22:2 And he said to them, You have kept all that Moses the servant of Jehovah commanded you, and you have listened to my voice in all that I have commanded you.22:3 You have not forsaken your brothers these many days unto this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of Jehovah your God.22:4 And now Jehovah your God has given your brothers rest as He promised them. And now turn and go to your tents, to the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of Jehovah gave you across the Jordan.22:5 However be very careful to perform the commandment and the law which Moses the servant of Jehovah commanded you, to love Jehovah your God and to walk in all His ways and to keep His commandments and to cling to Him and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul.22:6 And Joshua blessed them and sent them away; and they went to their tents.22:7 Now to the one half-tribe of Manasseh Moses had given an inheritance in Bashan, and to the other half of it Joshua gave an inheritance with their brothers across the Jordan on the west. Furthermore, when Joshua sent them away to their tents and blessed them,22:8 He spoke to them, saying, Return with many riches to your tents and with very many cattle, with silver and with gold and with bronze and with iron and with very much clothing; divide the spoil of your enemies with your brothers.22:9 So the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh went; and they departed from among the children of Israel out of Shiloh, which was in the land of Canaan, to go to the land of Gilead, to the land of their possession, which they had taken possession of according to the commandment of Jehovah through Moses.
