1 Kwathi emva kokufa kukaJoshuwa abantwana bakwa-Israyeli bambuza uJehova, bathi: “Ngubani phakathi kwethu oyakusikhuphukelela kuwo amaKhanani kuqala ukulwa nawo na?”
2 UJehova wathi: “Kuyakukhuphuka uJuda; bheka, ngilinikele izwe esandleni sakhe.”
3 UJuda wayesethi kuSimeyoni umfowabo: “Khuphuka nami, siye esabelweni sami, silwe namaKhanani, nami ngiye esabelweni sakho.” USimeyoni wayesehamba naye.
4 UJuda wakhuphuka; uJehova wanikela esandleni sabo amaKhanani namaPherizi, babulala kuwo abantu abayizinkulungwane eziyishumi eBezeki.
5 EBezeki bafumana u-Adoni Bezeki, balwa naye, bawabulala amaKhanani namaPherizi.
6 Kepha u-Adoni Bezeki wabaleka; bamxosha, bambamba, bamnquma izithupha nawoqukula.
7 Wayesethi u-Adoni Bezeki: “Amakhosi angamashumi ayisikhombisa enqunyiwe izithupha nawoqukula acosha ukudla kwawo phansi kwetafula lami; njengalokho ngenzile, kanjalo uNkulunkulu uphindisele kimi.” Bamyisa eJerusalema, wafela khona.
8 Abantwana bakwaJuda balwa neJerusalema, balithatha, balichitha ngosiko lwenkemba, bathungela umuzi ngomlilo.
9 Ngasemuva behla abantwana bakwaJuda ukuba balwe namaKhanani ayakhe ezintabeni, nangaseningizimu, nasenzansi.
10 UJuda wayesehlasela amaKhanani ayakhe eHebroni igama leHebroni laliyiKiriyati Araba kuqala babulala oSheshayi, no-Ahimani, noTalimayi.
11 Wasuka lapho, waya kwabakhe eDebiri; igama leDebiri laliyiKiriyati Seferi kuqala.
12 UKalebi wathi: “Onqoba iKiriyati Seferi, alithathe, yena ngiyakumnika u-Akisa indodakazi yami abe ngumkakhe.”
13 U-Otheniyeli indodana kaKenazi, umnawe kaKalebi, walithatha; wayesemnika u-Akisa indodakazi yakhe abe ngumkakhe.
14 Kwathi ekufikeni kwakhe wamnxusa ukuba acele insimu kuyise; wehla embongolweni yakhe; uKalebi wathi kuye: “Ukhala ngani?”
15 Wathi kuye: “Ngiphe isipho; lokhu unginike izwe laseningizimu ngiphe nemithombo yamanzi.” UKalebi wamupha imithombo yasenhla nemithombo yasenzansi.
16 Abantwana bomKheni umukhwe kaMose benyuka emzini wamasundu nabantwana bakwaJuda, baya ehlane lakwaJuda elingaseningizimu kwase-Aradi; baya bakha nabantu bakhona.
17 UJuda wahamba noSimeyoni umfowabo, bachitha amaKhanani ayakhe eSefati, baliqothula. Igama lomuzi laliyiHorma.
18 UJuda wathatha iGaza nomkhawulo walo, ne-Ashikeloni nomkhawulo walo, ne-Ekroni nomkhawulo walo.
19 UJehova wayenaye uJuda, waxosha abasezintabeni; wayengenakuxosha kodwa abakhe esigodini, lokhu bebenezinqola zensimbi.
20 Bamnika uKalebi iHebroni, njengalokho ebekhulumile uMose; waxosha khona amadodana amathathu ka-Anaki.
21 Abantwana bakwaBenjamini abawaxoshanga amaJebusi ayakhe eJerusalema, kepha amaJebusi ahlala nabantwana bakwaBenjamini eJerusalema kuze kube namuhla.
22 Kwenyukela eBethele nabendlu kaJosefa; uJehova wayenabo.
23 Abendlu kaJosefa bathuma bahlola iBethele; igama lomuzi laliyiLuze kuqala.
24 Zase zibona izinhloli umuntu ephuma emzini, zathi kuye: “Ake usikhombise intuba yokungena emzini, siyakukwenzela umusa.”
25 Wazikhombisa intuba yokungena emzini, zawuchitha umuzi ngosiko lwenkemba; kepha zamvumela lowo muntu nomndeni wakhe ukuba bahambe.
26 Lowo muntu wayesengena ezweni lamaHeti, wakha umuzi, waqamba igama lawo ngokuthi iLuze okuyigama lawo kuze kube namuhla.
27 UManase akaxoshanga abaseBeti Sheyani nemizana yalo, nabaseThahanaki nemizana yalo, nabakhe eDori nemizana yalo, nabakhe eJibileyamu nemizana yalo, nabakhe eMegido nemizana yalo; amaKhanani aphumelela ukuhlala kulelo zwe.
28 Kwathi u-Israyeli esenamandla, bawasebenzisa amaKhanani, kepha abawaxoshanga nokuwaxosha.
29 Naye u-Efrayimi akaxoshanga amaKhanani ayakhe eGezeri; kepha amaKhanani ahlala phakathi kwabo eGezeri.
30 UZebuloni akaxoshanga abakhe eKitroni, nabakhe eNahaloli; kepha amaKhanani ahlala phakathi kwabo, asetshenziswa.
31 U-Asheri akaxoshanga abakhe e-Ako, nabakhe eSidoni, nase-Ahlabi, nase-Akizibi, naseHelba, nase-Afiki, naseRehobe;
32 kepha ama-Asheri ahlala phakathi kwamaKhanani ayakhe kulelo zwe, ngokuba abawaxoshanga.
33 UNafetali akaxoshanga abakhe eBeti Shemeshi nabakhe eBeti Anati, kepha wahlala phakathi kwamaKhanani ayakhe kulelo zwe; kodwa abakhe eBeti Shemeshi naseBeti Anati basetshenziswa yibo.
34 Ama-Amori adudulela abantwana bakwaDani ezintabeni, ngokuba awabavumelanga ukwehlela esigodini.
35 Kepha ama-Amori aphumelela ukuhlala entabeni yaseHeresi, nase-Ajaloni, naseShahalabimi; kodwa isandla sendlu kaJosefa sahlula, aze asetshenziswa.
36 Umkhawulo wama-Amori wasukela ekwenyukeni kwe-Akarabimi naseSela, waya ngenhla njalo.
