Then he looked over toward the Kenites and delivered this message: "Your home is secure; your nest is set in the rocks.
When the tribe of Judah left Jericho--the city of palms--the Kenites, who were descendants of Moses' father-in-law, traveled with them into the wilderness of Judah. They settled among the people there, near the town of Arad in the Negev.
