the Week of Proper 20 / Ordinary 25
Simeon, the Tribe of
Easton's Bible Dictionary
This tribe received as their portion a part of the territory already allotted to Judah (Joshua 19:1-9 ). It lay in the south-west of the land, with Judah on the east and Dan on the north; but whether it was a compact territory or not cannot be determined. The subsequent notices of this tribe are but few (1 Chronicles 4:24-43 ). Like Reuben on the east of Jordan, this tribe had little influence on the history of Israel.
