  41. All the cities of the Levites in the midst of the possession of the children of Israel were forty-eight cities with their suburbs.
  42. Each of these cities included their suburbs around them. It was this way with all these cities.
  43. So Yahweh gave to Israel all the land which he swore to give to their fathers. They possessed it, and lived in it.
  44. Yahweh gave them rest all around, according to all that he swore to their fathers. Not a man of all their enemies stood before them. Yahweh delivered all their enemies into their hand.
  45. Nothing failed of any good thing which Yahweh had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.

Joshua 21 Text (KJV)
  1. Then came near the heads of the fathers of the Levites unto Eleazar the priest, and unto Joshua the son of Nun, and unto the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel;
  2. And they spake unto them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, saying, The LORD commanded by the hand of Moses to give us cities to dwell in, with the suburbs thereof for our cattle.
  3. And the children of Israel gave unto the Levites out of their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their suburbs.
  4. And the lot came out for the families of the Kohathites: and the children of Aaron the priest, which were of the Levites, had by lot out of the tribe of Judah, and out of the tribe of Simeon, and out of the tribe of Benjamin, thirteen cities.
  5. And the rest of the children of Kohath had by lot out of the families of the tribe of Ephraim, and out of the tribe of Dan, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh, ten cities.
  6. And the children of Gershon had by lot out of the families of the tribe of Issachar, and out of the tribe of Asher, and out of the tribe of Naphtali, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh in Bashan, thirteen cities.
  7. The children of Merari by their families had out of the tribe of Reuben, and out of the tribe of Gad, and out of the tribe of Zebulun, twelve cities.
  8. And the children of Israel gave by lot unto the Levites these cities with their suburbs, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
  9. And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah, and out of the tribe of the children of Simeon, these cities which are here mentioned by name,
  10. Which the children of Aaron, being of the families of the Kohathites, who were of the children of Levi, had: for theirs was the first lot.
  11. And they gave them the city of Arba the father of Anak, which city is Hebron, in the hill country of Judah, with the suburbs thereof round about it.
  12. But the fields of the city, and the villages thereof, gave they to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for his possession.
  13. Thus they gave to the children of Aaron the priest Hebron with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Libnah with her suburbs,
  14. And Jattir with her suburbs, and Eshtemoa with her suburbs,
  15. And Holon with her suburbs, and Debir with her suburbs,
  16. And Ain with her suburbs, and Juttah with her suburbs, and Beth-shemesh with her suburbs; nine cities out of those two tribes.
  17. And out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with her suburbs, Geba with her suburbs,
  18. Anathoth with her suburbs, and Almon with her suburbs; four cities.
  19. All the cities of the children of Aaron, the priests, were thirteen cities with their suburbs.
  20. And the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites which remained of the children of Kohath, even they had the cities of their lot out of the tribe of Ephraim.
  21. For they gave them Shechem with her suburbs in mount Ephraim, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Gezer with her suburbs,
  22. And Kibzaim with her suburbs, and Beth-horon with her suburbs; four cities.
  23. And out of the tribe of Dan, Eltekeh with her suburbs, Gibbethon with her suburbs,
  24. Aijalon with her suburbs, Gath-rimmon with her suburbs; four cities.
  25. And out of the half tribe of Manasseh, Tanach with her suburbs, and Gath-rimmon with her suburbs; two cities.
  26. All the cities were ten with their suburbs for the families of the children of Kohath that remained.
