Tribes continue to receive their inheritance as promised.

Y’hoshua 19:1-9 Then the second lot fell to Shim’on, to the tribe of the sons of Shim’on according to their families, and their inheritance was in the midst of the inheritance of the sons of Y’hudah. So they had as their inheritance Be’ersheva or Sheva and Moladah, and Hatzar-Shu’al and Balah and Etzem, and El-Tolad and B’tul and Hormah, and Ziklag and Beit-Markavot and Hatzar-Susah, and Beit-L’vaot and Sharuchen, thirteen cities with their villages; Ayin, Rimmon and Eter and Ashan, four cities with their villages; and all the villages which were around these cities as far as Ba’alat-Be’er, Ramah of the Negev. This was the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Shimon according to their families. The inheritance of the sons of Shim’on was taken from the portion of the sons of Y’hudah, for the share of the sons of Y’hudah was too large for them; so the sons of Shim’on received an inheritance in the midst of Y’hudah 's inheritance.
