1 以色列的全會眾都聚集在示羅，把會幕設立在那裡，那地已經被他們制伏了。【NIV】The whole assembly of the Israelites gathered at Shiloh and set up the tent of meeting there. The country was brought under their control,
2 以色列人中其餘的七個支派還沒有分給他們地業。【NIV】but there were still seven Israelite tribes who had not yet received their inheritance.
3 約書亞對以色列人說：「耶和華你們列祖的神所賜給你們的地，你們耽延不去得，要到幾時呢？【NIV】So Joshua said to the Israelites: "How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has given you?
4 你們每支派當選舉三個人，我要打發他們去，他們就要起身走遍那地，按著各支派應得的地業寫明（或作：畫圖），就回到我這裡來。【NIV】Appoint three men from each tribe. I will send them out to make a survey of the land and to write a description of it, according to the inheritance of each. Then they will return to me.
5 他們要將地分做七分；猶大仍在南方，住在他的境內。約瑟家仍在北方，住在他的境內。【NIV】You are to divide the land into seven parts. Judah is to remain in its territory on the south and the tribes of Joseph in their territory on the north.
6 你們要將地分做七分，寫明了拿到我這裡來。我要在耶和華我們神面前，為你們拈鬮。【NIV】After you have written descriptions of the seven parts of the land, bring them here to me and I will cast lots for you in the presence of the Lord our God.
【NIV】The Levites, however, do not get a portion among you, because the priestly service of the Lord is their inheritance. And Gad, Reuben and the half-tribe of Manasseh have already received their inheritance on the east side of the Jordan. Moses the servant of the Lord gave it to them."
8 劃地勢的人起身去的時候，約書亞囑咐他們說：「你們去走遍那地，劃明地勢，就回到我這裡來。我要在示羅這裡，耶和華面前，為你們拈鬮。」【NIV】As the men started on their way to map out the land, Joshua instructed them, "Go and make a survey of the land and write a description of it. Then return to me, and I will cast lots for you here at Shiloh in the presence of the Lord."
9 他們就去了，走遍那地，按著城邑分做七分，寫在冊子上，回到示羅營中見約書亞。【NIV】So the men left and went through the land. They wrote its description on a scroll, town by town, in seven parts, and returned to Joshua in the camp at Shiloh.
10 約書亞就在示羅，耶和華面前，為他們拈鬮。約書亞在那裡，按著以色列人的支派，將地分給他們。【NIV】Joshua then cast lots for them in Shiloh in the presence of the Lord, and there he distributed the land to the Israelites according to their tribal divisions.
烤蕃薯重點區：信心很重要, 當耶和華已經賜給你們了，就要趕緊憑信先來領受，時機很重要稍縱即逝，(18:8-10) 神對約書亞說，凡你們腳掌所踏之地，我都照著我所應許摩西的話賜給你們了。這些地雖然還沒完全攻取，但卻是神要賜給你們的，憑信心即可接受，神會與您同在一同來成就。
