Joshua 15:31-33New English Translation (NET Bible)
31 Ziklag, Madmannah, Sansannah, 32 Lebaoth, Shilhim, Ain, and Rimmon—a total of twenty-nine cities and their towns.[a]
33 These cities were[b] in the foothills:[c] Eshtaol, Zorah, Ashnah,
Joshua 15:32tn The total number of names in the list is thirty-six, not twenty-nine. Perhaps (1) some of the names are alternatives (though the text appears to delineate clearly such alternative names here and elsewhere, see vv. 8, 9, 10, 13, 25b) or (2), more likely, later scribes added to a list originally numbering twenty-nine and failed to harmonize the concluding summary statement with the expanded list.
Joshua 15:33tn The words “these cities were” have been supplied for English stylistic reasons.
Joshua 15:33tn The foothills (שְׁפֵלָה, shephelah) are the region between the Judean hill country and the Mediterranean coastal plain.
