1 UJoshuwa wayesemdala eneminyaka eminingi; uJehova wathi kuye: “Usumdala uneminyaka eminingi, kepha kusasele izwe elikhulu kakhulu eliyakudliwa.
2 “Leli liyizwe elisasele: amazwe onke amaFilisti nawo onke amaGeshuri,
3 kusukela eSihori elingaphambi kweGibithe kuze kube semkhawulweni wase-Ekroni ngasenyakatho, elibalelwa kumaKhanani, amakhosi ayisihlanu amaFilisti: amaGaza, nama-Ashidodi, nama-Ashikeloni, namaGiti, nama-Ekroni, nama-Avi,
4 lonke izwe lamaKhanani ngaseningizimu neMehara elingelamaSidoni kuze kufike e-Afeki nasemkhawulweni wama-Amori,
5 nezwe lamaGebali nalo lonke iLebanoni ngasempumalanga, kusukela eBali Gadi ngaphansi kwentaba yaseHermoni kuze kufike ekuyeni eHamati,
6 bonke abakhileyo ezintabeni, kusukela eLebanoni kuze kube seMisirefoti Mayimi, onke amaSidoni; mina ngiyakuwaxosha phambi kwabantwana bakwa-Israyeli, wena-ke ulabele abakwa-Israyeli ngenkatho, libe yifa njengokukuyala kwami.
7 Ngalokho yahlukanisa leli zwe libe yifa lezizwe eziyisishiyagalolunye nelenxenye yesizwe sakwaManase.”
8 Kanye naye abakwaRubeni nabakwaGadi balamukela ifa abanika lona uMose ngaphesheya kweJordani ngasempumalanga, njengalokho inceku kaJehova uMose yabanika:
9 kusukela e-Aroweri eliseceleni kwesigodi sase-Arinoni, nomuzi ophakathi nesigodi, nalo lonke ithafa laseMedeba kuze kufike eDiboni,
10 nayo yonke imizi kaSihoni inkosi yama-Amori owabusa eHeshiboni, kuze kube semkhawulweni wabantwana bakwa-Amoni,
11 neGileyadi nomkhawulo wamaGeshuri nowamaMahakhathi, nayo yonke intaba yaseHermoni, nalo lonke iBashani kuze kufike eSaleka,
12 nawo wonke umbuso ka-Ogi eBashani owayebusa e-Ashitaroti nase-Edireyi, owayesele kuyo insali yamaRefa; uMose wabanqoba, wabaxosha.
13 Kepha abantwana bakwa-Israyeli abawaxoshanga amaGeshuri namaMahakhati, kodwa oGeshuri noMahakha bahlala phakathi kuka-Israyeli kuze kube namuhla.
14 Isizwe sakwaLevi kuphela akasinikanga fa; iminikelo kaJehova uNkulunkulu ka-Israyeli yomlilo iyifa lakhe njengokukhuluma kwakhe kuye.
15 UMose wanika isizwe sabantwana bakwaRubeni ngemindeni yabo.
16 Umkhawulo wabo wasuka e-Aroweri eliseceleni kwesigodi sase-Arinoni, nomuzi ophakathi nesigodi, nalo lonke ithafa ngaseMedeba,
17 neHeshiboni nayo yonke imizi yalo yasethafeni, iDiboni, neBamoti Bali, neBeti Bali Mehoni,
18 neJahasi, neKedemoti, neMefahati,
19 neKiriyatayimi, neSibima, neSereti Shahari entabeni yasesigodini,
20 neBeti Peyori, nemithambeka yasePisiga, neBeti Jeshimoti,
21 nayo yonke imizi yasethafeni, nawo wonke umbuso kaSihoni inkosi yama-Amori owayebusa eHeshiboni, ambulalayo uMose kanye nezikhulu zakwaMidiyani, o-Evi, noRekemi, noSuri, noHure, noReba, izikhulu zikaSihoni ezazakhe kulelo zwe.
22 UBileyamu indodana kaBeyori, umbhuli, naye bambulala abantwana bakwa-Israyeli ngenkemba phakathi kwabanye ababulawa yibo.
23 Umkhawulo wabantwana bakwaRubeni wawuyiJordani nogu lwalo. Lelo laliyifa labantwana bakwaRubeni ngemindeni yabo, imizi nemizana yabo.
24 UMose wanika isizwe sakwaGadi, abantwana bakwaGadi, ngemindeni yaso.
25 Umkhawulo wabo wawuyiJazeri, nayo yonke imizi yakwaGileyadi, nenxenye yezwe labantwana bakwa-Amoni, kuze kufike e-Aroweri elingaphambi kweRaba,
26 kusukela eHeshiboni kuze kufike eRamati Mispa naseBethonimi, kusukela eMahanayimi kuze kufike emkhawulweni weDebiri;
27 nasesigodini: iBeti Haramu, neBeti Nimra, neSukoti, neSafoni, insali yombuso kaSihoni inkosi yaseHeshiboni, iJordani nogu lwalo, kuze kufike ekupheleni kolwandle lwaseKinereti phesheya kweJordani ngasempumalanga.
28 Lelo laliyifa labantwana bakwaGadi ngemindeni yabo, imizi nemizana yabo.
29 UMose wanika inxenye yesizwe sakwaManase: kwaba ngokwenxenye yesizwe sabantwana bakwaManase ngemindeni yabo.
30 Umkhawulo wabo wasuka eMahanayimi: lonke iBashani, wonke umbuso ka-Ogi inkosi yaseBashani, nayo yonke imizi yeJayire eseBashani, imizi engamashumi ayisithupha,
31 nenxenye yakwaGileyadi, ne-Ashitaroti, ne-Edireyi, imizi yombuso ka-Ogi eBashani; lokho kwaba ngokwabantwana bakwaMakiri indodana kaManase, inxenye yabantwana bakwaMakiri ngemindeni yabo.
32 Lawo angamafa uMose awabela emathafeni akwaMowabi phesheya kweJordani, ngaseJeriko ngasempumalanga.
33 Kepha isizwe sakwaLevi uMose akasinikanga fa; uJehova uNkulunkulu ka-Israyeli uyifa labo njengokukhuluma kwakhe kubo.
