Verses 1-51

Joshua 19:1-10 Comments - Simeon received an inheritance of seventeen cities within the inheritance of Judah. Since these cities were scattered rather than neighbouring, the tribe of Simeon was eventually assimilated into Judah. This was in fulfilment of the prophecy of Jacob in Genesis 49:7, “Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel .”

Joshua 19:49-50 Comments - The Inheritance of Joshua Joshua 19:49-50 records the inheritance that Joshua received among the children of Israel. He was of the tribe of Ephraim (Numbers 13:8), so received his inheritance in mount Ephraim. Note how well 1 Timothy 5:17 addresses this event in Joshua so well. The elders who minister in God’s Word well are to be counted worthy of double honour.

Numbers 13:8, “Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun.”

1 Timothy 5:17, “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.”
