Default Day 67. Joshua 16-18 - 11-12-2007, 07:52 PM

Joshua 16-18

In today's Bible in a Year reading we continue with the divvying up of the land to certain tribes.

Today we get:
  • Ephraim's inheritance
  • Manasseh's inheritance
  • Benjamin's inheritance
Joshua 16

1 And the lot of the children of Joseph fell from Jordan by Jericho, unto the water of Jericho on the east, to the wilderness that goeth up from Jericho throughout mount Bethel,

Joseph's kids get the next inheritance. Now you may wonder why both Ephriam and Manasseh both got an inheritance in the land, and why they are the only group that Israel's grandkids got two?

You have to go back to Genesis 48, when Jacob was dieing and Joseph took his two boys to meet their grandfather.

Genesis 48:5 And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.


Jacob claimed them as his own, and gave them each a full inheritance.

Genesis 48:22 Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow.

He initially made it 13 shares of his inheritance, but when God claimed the Levites as His own, that reduced the tribes to 12.

Back to the story.

4 So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their inheritance.

Praise, read today's reading to get the full gist of the layout of the land.

10 And they drave not out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer: but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve under tribute.


Once again, we see that the people made a covenant with the original inhabitants. This time, allowing them to live, so long as they paid money.

Joshua 17

1 There was also a lot for the tribe of Manasseh; for he was the firstborn of Joseph; to wit, for Machir the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead: because he was a man of war, therefore he had Gilead and Bashan.


Remember back to Genesis 48, Jacob gave the birthright portion to Ephraim, the younger.

3 But Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but daughters: and these are the names of his daughters, Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.

Ah yes, the daughters who wanted their portion.

4 And they came near before Eleazar the priest, and before Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying, The LORD commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brethren. Therefore according to the commandment of the LORD he gave them an inheritance among the brethren of their father.


So, Joshua did what Moses had promised them.

12 Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.

Wusses

13 Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute, but did not utterly drive them out.


Man, if you can't drive them out, tax them out.

Apparently, their initial portion wasn't enough, and they asked for more.

15 And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.


If you need more, you can have the mountain... if you can get it!

18 But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong.

Iron chariots? Hmmm... remember iron chariots.

Joshua 18

1 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.


Shiloh, the setup of the tentbernacle, PRAISE JESUS!

2 And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance.

Who's gotten something so far of the 12? Reuben, Gad, Manasseh, Ephraim, and Judah.

3 And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you?

Slackers! Go kill them so you can get your land.

Joshua then sends out people to go map out the rest of the land, so they can divide it among the remaining 7.

7 But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD is their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.

Yes, we know... we know.

11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.

So Benjamin received the next portion.

Read the chapter to learn their cities.

So what have we learned today?

1. Iron chariots are something the joos fear.
2. If you want more possession, go get it!
