The bible is not just some historical record. It tells us that all scripture is profitable. Every detail is placed there for a purpose. Looking back at Joshua 15:19, you can see where Achsah mentions that the need for springs of water is because she has been given a south land.
Joshua 15:19 Who answered, Give me a blessing; for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And he gave her the upper springs, and the nether springs.
A little more research brings up this tidbit of information. A definition of south as translated from the Hebrew language.
South negeb [neh'-gheb] From an unused root meaning to be parched; the south (from its drought); specifically the negeb or southern district of Judah. Strong's Dictionary
So the land Achsah gets is a parched desert! Some wedding present! But she is a wise daughter and intercedes with her father who gives the needed waters. Think of the many references to watering the desert or dry land you can find in the bilble. For example:
Isaiah 41:18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
Isaiah 30:25 puts these streams of water into an end time context.
Isaiah 30:25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
Exodus 4:9 And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry land.
Psalms 46:4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
These scriptures make allusion to the end time harvest, which is what it's all about anyway.
