The borders of the lot of Juda. Caleb's portion and conquest. The cities of Juda.
 Now the lot of the children of Juda by their kindreds was this: From the frontier of Edom, to the desert of Sin southward, and to the uttermost part of the south coast.
Igitur sors filiorum Judae per cognationes suas ista fuit : a termino Edom, desertum Sin, contra meridiem, et usque ad extremam partem australis plagae.
 Its beginning was from the top of the most salt sea, and from the bay thereof, that looketh to the south.
Initium ejus a summitate maris salsissimi, et a lingua ejus, quae respicit meridiem.
 And it goeth out towards the ascent of the Scorpion, and passeth on to Sina: and ascendeth into Cadesbarne, and reacheth into Esron, going up to Addar, and compassing Carcaa.
Egrediturque contra ascensum Scorpionis, et pertransit in Sina : ascenditque in Cadesbarne, et pervenit in Esron, ascendens ad Addar, et circuiens Carcaa,
 And from thence passing along into Asemona, and reaching the torrent of Egypt: and the bounds thereof shall be the great sea, this shall be the limit of the south coast.
atque inde pertransiens in Asemona, et perveniens ad torrentem Aegypti : eruntque termini ejus mare magnum. Hic erit finis meridianae plagae.
 But on the east side the beginning shall be the most salt sea even to the end of the Jordan: and towards the north, from the bay of the sea unto the same river Jordan.
Ab oriente vero erit initium, mare salsissimum usque ad extrema Jordanis : et ea quae respiciunt ad aquilonem, a lingua maris usque ad eumdem Jordanis fluvium.
 And the border goeth up into Beth-Hagla, and passeth by the north into Beth-Araba: going up to the stone of Boen the son of Ruben.
Ascenditque terminus in Beth Hagla, et transit ab aquilone in Beth Araba, ascendens ad lapidem Boen filii Ruben :
 And reaching as far as the borders of Debara from the valley of Achor, and so northward looking towards Galgal, which is opposite to the ascent of Adommin, on the south side of the torrent: and the border passeth the waters that are called the fountain of the sun: and the goings out thereof shall be at the fountain Rogel.
et tendens usque ad terminos Debera de valle Achor, contra aquilonem respiciens Galgala, quae est ex adverso ascensionis Adommim, ab australi parte torrentis : transitque aquas, quae vocantur fons solis : et erunt exitus ejus ad fontem Rogel.
 And it goeth up by the valley of the son of Ennom on the side of the Jebusite towards the south, the same is Jerusalem: and thence ascending to the top of the mountain, which is over against Geennom to the west in the end of the valley of Raphaim, northward.
Ascenditque per convallem filii Ennom ex latere Jebusaei ad meridiem, haec est Jerusalem : et inde se erigens ad verticem montis, qui est contra Geennom ad occidentem in summitate vallis Raphaim contra aquilonem :
 And it passeth on from the top of the mountain to the fountain of the water of Nephtoa: and reacheth to the towns of mount Ephron: and it bendeth towards Baala, which is Cariathiarim, that is to say, the city of the woods.
pertransitque a vertice montis usque ad fontem aquae Nephtoa : et pervenit usque ad vicos montis Ephron : inclinaturque in Baala, quae est Cariathiarim, id est, urbs silvarum.
 And it compasseth from Baala westward unto mount Seir: and passeth by the side of mount Jarim to the north into Cheslon: and goeth down into Bethsames, and passeth into Thamna.
Et circuit de Baala contra occidentem, usque ad montem Seir : transitque juxta latus montis Jarim ad aquilonem in Cheslon : et descendit in Bethsames, transitque in Thamna.
 And it reacheth northward to a part of Accaron at the side: and bendeth to Sechrona, and passeth mount Baala: and cometh into Jebneel, and is bounded westward with the great sea.
Et pervenit contra aquilonem partis Accaron ex latere : inclinaturque Sechrona, et transit montem Baala : pervenitque in Jebneel, et magni maris contra occidentem fine concluditur.
 These are the borders round about of the children of Juda in their kindreds.
Hi sunt termini filiorum Juda per circuitum in cognationibus suis.
 But to Caleb the son of Jephone he gave a portion in the midst of the children of Juda, as the Lord had commanded him: Cariath-Arbe the father of Enac. which is Hebron.
Caleb vero filio Jephone dedit partem in medio filiorum Juda, sicut praeceperat ei Dominus : Cariath Arbe patris Enac, ipsa est Hebron.
 And Caleb destroyed out of it the three sons of Ehac, Sesai and Ahiman. and Tholmai of the race of Enac.
Delevitque ex ea Caleb tres filios Enac, Sesai et Ahiman et Tholmai de stirpe Enac.
 And going up from thence he came to the inhabitants of Dabir, which before was called Cariath-Sepher, that is to say, the city of letters.
Atque inde conscendens venit ad habitatores Dabir, quae prius vocabatur Cariath Sepher, id est, civitas litterarum.
 And Caleb said: He that shall smite Cariath-Sepher, and take it, I will give him Axa my daughter to wife.
Dixitque Caleb : Qui percusserit Cariath Sepher, et ceperit eam, dabo ei Axam filiam meam uxorem.
 And Othoniel the son of Cenez, the younger brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Axa his daughter to wife.
Cepitque eam Othoniel filius Cenez frater Caleb junior : deditque ei Axam filiam suam uxorem.
 And as they were going together, she was moved by her husband to ask a field of her father, and she sighed as she sat on her ass. And Caleb said to her: What aileth thee?
Quae, cum pergerent simul, suasa est a viro suo ut peteret a patre suo agrum. Suspiravitque ut sedebat in asino : cui Caleb : Quid habes? inquit.
 But she answered: Give me a blessing: thou hast given me a southern and dry land, give me also a land that is watered. And Caleb gave her the upper and the nether watery ground.
At illa respondit : Da mihi benedictionem : terram australem et arentem dedisti mihi; junge et irriguam. Dedit itaque ei Caleb irriguum superius et inferius.
