Yehoshua - Chapter 15

We are told in great detail of the borders and cities allotted to the tribe of Yehuda (Judah).
Kalev conquers Chevron, and promises his daughter Achsa to whoever is able to conquer the city of Kiryas Sefer. He is taken up on this challenge by his brother Osniel, who then marries Achsa. In a somehwat obscuse story, Achas asks Kalev to give her springs of water, which he does.
The people of Yehuda were unable to conquer the city of Jerusalem, which remained in Jebusite hands.
