Josh 19:1-9

The Territory of Simeon 1The second lot came out for Simeon, for the tribe of Simeon, according to its families; its inheritance lay within the inheritance of the tribe of Judah.2It had for its inheritance Beer-sheba, Sheba, Moladah,3Hazar-shual, Balah, Ezem,4Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah,5Ziklag, Beth-marcaboth, Hazar-susah,6Beth-lebaoth, and Sharuhen—thirteen towns with their villages;7Ain, Rimmon, Ether, and Ashan—four towns with their villages;8together with all the villages all around these towns as far as Baalath-beer, Ramah of the Negeb. This was the inheritance of the tribe of Simeon according to its families.9The inheritance of the tribe of Simeon formed part of the territory of Judah; because the portion of the tribe of Judah was too large for them, the tribe of Simeon obtained an inheritance within their inheritance.
