Allotment for Ephraim and Manasseh
16:1 And the lot of the children of Joseph fell from
Jordan by Jericho, unto the water of Jericho on the east, to
the wilderness that goeth up from Jericho throughout mount
16:2 And goeth out from Bethel to Luz, and passeth along
unto the borders of Archi to Ataroth,
16:3 And goeth down westward to the coast of Japhleti, unto
the coast of Bethhoron the nether, and to Gezer; and the
goings out thereof are at the sea.
16:4 So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took
16:5 And the border of the children of Ephraim according to
their families was thus: even the border of their
inheritance on the east side was Atarothaddar, unto
Bethhoron the upper;
16:6 And the border went out toward the sea to Michmethah
on the north side; and the border went about eastward unto
Taanathshiloh, and passed by it on the east to Janohah;
16:7 And it went down from Janohah to Ataroth, and to
Naarath, and came to Jericho, and went out at Jordan.
16:8 The border went out from Tappuah westward unto the
river Kanah; and the goings out thereof were at the sea.
This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of
Ephraim by their families.
16:9 And the separate cities for the children of Ephraim
were among the inheritance of the children of Manasseh, all
the cities with their villages.
16:10 And they drave not out the Canaanites that dwelt in
Gezer: but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto
this day, and serve under tribute.
