The Lord showed the tribe of Judah what they were inheriting, not only by describing the border, but including the names of the towns within that area:

This was the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families: The cities at the limits of the tribe of the children of Judah, toward the border of Edom in the South, were…all the cities are twenty-nine, with their villages. In the lowland…fourteen cities with their villages…sixteen cities with their villages…nine cities with their villages; Ekron, with its towns and villages; from Ekron to the sea, all that lay near Ashdod, with their villages; Ashdod with its towns and villages, Gaza with its towns and villages—as far as the Brook of Egypt and the Great Sea with its coastline. And in the mountain country…eleven cities with their villages…nine cities with their villages…ten cities with their villages…six cities with their villages…two cities with their villages…six cities with their villages.

– Joshua 15.20–62
