As for the Jebusites, the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out; but the Jebusites live with the children of Judah at Jerusalem to this day. Bible

“the children of Judah could not drive them out.” The Jebusites lived inside the walled city, while the Judeans lived in the surrounding area. Interestingly, the city of Jerusalem was in the tribal territory of Benjamin, not Judah, but barely so. Jerusalem was on the far southern border of Benjamin. Later in Samuel, David conquered the Jebusite city of Jerusalem for his capital city.
