The Inheritance for Zebulun
The third lot came up for the people of Zebulun, according to their clans. And the territory of their inheritance reached as far as Sarid.
Then their boundary goes up s westward and on to Mareal and touches Dabbesheth, then the brook that is east of t Jokneam.
From Sarid it goes in the other direction eastward toward the sunrise to the boundary of Chisloth-tabor. From there it goes to Daberath, then up to Japhia.
From there it passes along on the east toward the sunrise to Gath-hepher, to Eth-kazin, and going on to Rimmon it bends toward Neah,
then on the north the boundary turns about to Hannathon, and it ends at the Valley of Iphtahel;
and Kattath, Nahalal, u Shimron, Idalah, and Bethlehem - twelve cities with their villages.
This is the inheritance of the people of Zebulun, according to their clans - these cities with their villages.
