Joshua - 1

protecting those less blessed

Joshua 19:1-9 (JDV)

Joshua 19:1 The second lot came out for Simeon, for the tribe of his descendants by their clans, but their inheritance was within the inheritance given to Judah’s descendants.
Joshua 19:2 Their inheritance included Beer-sheba (or Sheba), Moladah,
Joshua 19:3 Hazar-shual, Balah, Ezem,
Joshua 19:4 Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah,
Joshua 19:5 Ziklag, Beth-marcaboth, Hazar-susah,
Joshua 19:6 Beth-lebaoth, and Sharuhen ā€“ thirteen cities, with their settlements;
Joshua 19:7 Ain, Rimmon, Ether, and Ashan ā€“ four cities, with their settlements;
Joshua 19:8 and all the settlements surrounding these cities as far as Baalath-beer (Ramah in the south). This was the inheritance of the tribe of Simeon’s descendants by their clans.
Joshua 19:9 The inheritance of Simeon’s descendants was within the territory of Judah’s descendants, because the share for Judah’s descendants was too large. So Simeon’s descendants received an inheritance within Judah’s portion.

protecting those less blessed

This appears to be another example of partnering for protection. Simeon’s small tribe was given a territory within the portion allotted to Judah. This enabled them to thrive under the protection of their brother tribe.

If the Lord blesses us, it is for the blessing and protection of those less blessed.

Coming King, show us how we can partner with others, for our protection, or theirs.
