Joshua 16
Allotment for Ephraim and Manasseh
1#Jos 8:15; 18:12The allotment of land for the descendants of Joseph was from the Jordan by Jericho then east into the wilderness, rising from Jericho to the hill country of Bethel. 2#Jos 18:13; Ge 28:19It goes out from Bethel to Luz and passes to the border of Arkite territory at Ataroth. 3#Jos 10:33; 18:13It goes down westward to the territory of the Japhletites, to the border of lower Beth Horon and Gezer, and then goes out to the sea.
4#Jos 17:14So the descendants of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their inheritance.
5#Jos 18:13The territory of the Ephraimites, according to their clans, was as follows. The border of their inheritance on the east was Ataroth Addar as far as upper Beth Horon. 6#Jos 17:7The border goes out toward the sea with Mikmethath on the north. It turns eastward toward Taanath Shiloh and passes it on the east toward Janoah. 7#1Ch 7:28It descends from Janoah to Ataroth and to Naarah, touches Jericho, and extends to the Jordan. 8#Jos 17:8–9From Tappuah the border goes west to the Kanah Ravine and out to the sea. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the Ephraimites according to their clans. 9The other cities for the Ephraimites were in the middle of the inheritance of the descendants of Manasseh, all the cities and their villages.
10#Jdg 1:29; 1Ki 9:16They did not drive out the Canaanites who lived in Gezer, so the Canaanites live in the midst of Ephraim until this day performing heavy labor as slaves.
