Chapter 14

Joshua Declares Only Even Numbers are Allowed

  • The chief priest Eleazar, Joshua, and the heads of the tribal families oversee the allotment of the Promised Land among the twelve tribes.
  • Joshua likes even numbers, so to cope with the fact that the Levites don't receive any land (because they're priests), the people of Joseph are counted into two tribes: Manasseh and Ephraim.
  • The people of Judah, led by Caleb, come to Joshua first.
  • Caleb was one of the original twelve spies sent into Canaan. See Numbers 13:30; 14:24. He is now 85 years old. What a champ.
  • Joshua blesses him and gives the tribe Hebron (1-15).
