Josh. 19-21 (LOTR ending)

This selection is the penultimate reading for the book of Joshua.  However, Chapter 21 closes with this:
43 So the Lord gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their ancestors, and they took possession of it and settled there. 44 The Lord gave them rest on every side, just as he had sworn to their ancestors. Not one of their enemies withstood them; the Lord gave all their enemies into their hands. 45 Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.
                                    ***
43 Así fue como el Señor les entregó a los israelitas todo el territorio que había prometido darles a sus antepasados; y el pueblo de Israel se estableció allí. 44 El Señor les dio descanso en todo el territorio, cumpliendo así la promesa hecha años atrás a sus antepasados. Ninguno de sus enemigos pudo hacer frente a los israelitas, pues el Señor entregó en sus manos a cada uno de los que se les oponían. 45 Y ni una sola de las buenas promesas del Señor a favor de Israel dejó de cumplirse, sino que cada una se cumplió al pie de la letra.

Then, the book goes on for three more chapters, which reminded me of the ending to the LOTR movies.

This image seems pretty close to me.  Notice Simeon is inside of Judah.  Reminds me of the Hopi and Navajo land.
