Jamn I answered most of these for you already...I will look though your new list and see about any which differ....Clarifications and new questions:
#1: Explain situating of Naphtali's placement in reference to ("SOUTHward?")
#2: Where were the firstfruits offered? Only at the Temple or in towns too? (, .) Please provide references for your answer. I'm still unclear about where it gives instructions on timing and placement of this specific sacrifice.
#3: Because the honey Samson ate from the lion's carcass considered an unclean food, what were the repercussions if his actions? Why did the Lord remain with him? His vow was broken, right? Or perhaps because it was a year or so later the lion was decomposed and simply fortified the honey's nutrients...
#4: When were the Kenites carried away by Ashur? ()
#5: Is the 'boiling' spoken of in
against or not in line with God's law? I thought He already told them what part they would receive. So it should not have been by chance, or whatever came up in the pot. Where/when did God instruct them to boil it in order to come up with the part that belonged to them? It was already decided...

B. Did Levites who worked in the temple(s), etc. live in a different place than the ones who led normal lives?
C. Did both types live in the Levite towns or did they live separately? D. Did the Levites (both or one kind) live with other people in their towns who belonged to the tribe they were situated in or were the towns exclusively for the Levites?
E. How did the redeeming of the firstborn/Levites work?
#9: Was the king in Jerusalem? When did this start? With Saul? Was there a reason they chose Jerusalem? (Reference?) "David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem; he put the Philistine’s weapons in his own tent." ( NIV)
#10: Who eventually killed off the Amalekites?
#11: Why were there idols in David's house? ()
