Joshua is taking the Children of Israel into the Promise Land. Moses just died and Joshua has the mantle.
List of kingdoms which Israel defeated: first, many on east side of Jordan River (starting with lands of Sihon and Og), then 31 kings on the west side in the promised land.
Joshua is old, but God tells him there is much land that remains to be conquered. The land will divided by lot among the tribes. The eastern territories for Reuben, Gad and half of Manasseh are defined. Levi inherits no land, for the Lord is their inheritance.
Land of Canaan distributed to tribes of Israel. Caleb and the children of Judah request and receive from Joshua the mountain of Hebron – the mountain he passed over to spy on Canaan in Numbers 13.
Land allocation of tribe of Judah is defined. The Jebusites remain in Jerusalem, however. Caleb gives his daughter to Othniel. Caleb gives extra land to his daughter.
Land allocation of children of Joseph is defined separately for Manasseh and Ephraim. The Canaanites in Gezar remain the servants of Ephraim.
