June 19, 2019: Day 53 – Joshua 19

Once again we find ourselves in a setting where Joshua and the high priest were responsible for dividing the land for the Israelite tribes.  It is really helpful to have  the map in front of you that I provided a few chapters back.  If nothing else it provides you with an opportunity to see how each of the tribes received their land.

Did you notice that Joshua received his own land irrespective of what his tribe received?  That was nice.  Kind of a reward for all of his hard work.  The chapter ends with the statement that the division of the land had been accomplished, it had been finished.  So it leaves us with the question of what is next?  I guess there will probably be more conquests since the division of the land is complete.  Let’s see.
