gives us the answer. If you count the cities in the first group given to the tribe of Simeon (v1), it will appear to be fourteen cities in vv 2-6. But verse 6 tells us that in this group there were only thirteen cities. Therefore, Sheba cannot be included within the group but is actually a shortened word for Beersheba. So one could refer to that city as Beersheba or Sheba. Then KJV is correct to state, 'or Sheba'. And the villages mentioned there are separate from this count of thirteen.
"or sheba" or "and sheba"?
