Also Judah captured Gaza with its territory and Ashkelon with its territory and Ekron with its territory. Bible see other translations

“Judah captured Gaza.” The verse says that Judah captured Gaza, but there is some doubt about that. The Septuagint says that Judah did “not” capture these cities. which seems to accord with Joshua 13:2-3. Also, in Joshua 12 these cities are not listed as having been conquered. If they were captured, for some reason they did not hold it long. The Philistines quickly inhabited it (Judg. 6:4).
