Not finishing the job

It makes me sad to see that the Israelites didn't finish conquering the land.  They would've had God with them.  Why didn't they keep going?  Did they just get comfortable and forget like Moses warned against?  

The maps Craig posted are great.  What did you guys think about Judah getting such a large part of the land?  Some of the tribes had really small areas.

Me too. That part was depressing

I think they got comfortable; just like the rest of us the Israelites settled in a way, thinking that what they had conquered was "good enough", but not realizing that with a little more effort and perseverance, God had a great reward planned for them.
