Tribal Allotments of Israel

It took about 6 years for the tribes of Israel to conquer the Land of Canaan and to overcome the military might of the ancient Canaanites according to Joshua 14. It was at this time that Joshua divided the land among the tribes and allotted portions according to the Word of the Lord, the size of the tribe, and by casting lots.
