THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on Book of Judges (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

1:8 Jerusalem: This city was divided into two; one part was called Jebus, the other Salem: the one was in the tribe of Juda, the other in the tribe of Benjamin. After it was taken and burnt by the men of Juda, it was quickly rebuilt again by the Jebusites, as we may gather from ver. 21; and continued in their possession till it was taken by king David.
