21:1 Then came near the Rashei Avot Levi'im to Eleazar ha kohen, and to Yehoshua Ben Nun, and to ha Rashei avot Shivtei Benai Yisrael;

21:3 And Benai Yisrael gave to the Levi'im out of their inheritance, at the mitzvah of ADONAI (יהוה), these cities and their migrash.

21:41 All the cities of the Levi'im within the possession of Benai Yisrael [were] forty and eight cities with their migrash.

21:42 These cities were every one with their migrash round about them: thus [were] all these cities.

21:43 And ADONAI (יהוה) gave to Yisrael all the land which he sware to give to their avot; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.

21:44 And ADONAI (יהוה) gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware to their avot: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; ADONAI (יהוה) delivered all their enemies into their hand.

21:45 There failed not ought of any good thing which ADONAI (יהוה) had spoken to ha beit Yisrael; all came to pass.
