    Definitions for Joshua 18:11

    Lot - Portion; destiny; fate.

    Clarke's Commentary on Joshua 18:11

    And the lot - of Benjamin came up - On the manner of casting the lot, see on Joshua 14:2 (note), and Numbers 26:55 (note). There were probably two urns, one of which contained the names of the seven tribes, and the other that of the seven portions. They therefore took out one name out of the first urn, and one portion out of the second, and thus the portion was adjudged to that tribe.

    Barnes' Notes on Joshua 18:11

    See the marginal references. There are many indications found in this and the next chapter that the text is in great disorder, and many of the places are still unknown.

    Wesley's Notes on Joshua 18:11

    18:11 And the children of Joseph - Wherein we see the wisdom of Divine Providence, this being the only place in which that prophecy, Deut 33:12, could have been accomplished. Providence cast Benjamin next to Joseph on the one hand, because Benjamin was own and only brother to Joseph, and next to Judah on the other hand, that this tribe might hereafter unite with Judah, in an adherence to the throne of David, and the temple at Jerusalem.
