Joshua 16 – 20 – Reading Note

  • The people of Ephraim could not dislodge the Canaanites living in Gezer so they just lived among them. But the Canaanites were required to do forced labor. (16:10)
  • As God had commanded Moses, the daughters of Zelophehad received shares of land because their father had no sons. (17: 3 – 6)
  • The Mannasites were not able to occupy some of their lands because the Canaanites were determined to live there. However, when they grew stronger, they subjected the Canaanites to forced labor and did not drive them out completely. (17: 12, 13)
  • The descendants of Joseph complained that the land they were given was too small for them (numerous as they were) so Joshua told them to clear some of the forested hill country, drive out the Canaanites there and take it. (17: 14 – 18)
  • After all the division that had gone on, 7 tribes still needed land, but there was no conquered land for them. So Joshua told them to spy out the rest of the land. Then he would divide it among them and they could conquer it. (18: 1 – 10)
  • After all the division was done, Joshua was given land from the Territory of the Ephraimites. He built a town and settled there. (19: 49, 50)
  • They set apart the cities of Refuge so that any one (Israelite or Foreigner) who killed someone accidentally could escape there. (20: 1 – 9)
