After a “divide and conquer” campaign, Joshua begins to divide out the Promised Land to the various 12 tribes with the charge to continue to root out the inhabitants of the land.
One man, Caleb, one of the original 12 spies, asked Joshua for his inheritance. You see, God promised Joshua and Caleb an inheritance because they gave a good report (Numbers 13). Caleb asks to take on the Anakites (the giants of the land), the ones that the other 10 spies were afraid of. Caleb displayed an enduring faith (he waited for 45 years) and great courage (to go up against the Anakites).
