Then the second lot fell to Simeon, to the tribe of the sons of Simeon according to their families, and their inheritance was in the midst of the inheritance of the sons of Judah.
So they had as their inheritance Beersheba or Sheba and Moladah,
and Hazar-shual and Balah and Ezem,
and Eltolad and Bethul and Hormah,
and Ziklag and Beth-marcaboth and Hazar-susah,
and Beth-lebaoth and Sharuhen; thirteen cities with their villages;
Ain, Rimmon and Ether and Ashan; four cities with their villages;
and all the villages which [were] around these cities as far as Baalath-beer, Ramah of the Negev. This [was] the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Simeon according to their families.
The inheritance of the sons of Simeon [was taken] from the portion of the sons of Judah, for the share of the sons of Judah was too large for them; so the sons of Simeon received [an] inheritance in the midst of Judah's inheritance.
