The Inheritance of Joseph

The Inheritance of Joseph

And the lot of the children of Joseph fell a from Jordan by Jericho, unto the water of Jericho on the east, to the wilderness that goeth up from Jericho throughout mount Beth–el,

[2] And goeth out from Beth-el to Luz, and passeth along unto the borders of Archi to Ataroth,

[3] And goeth down westward to the coast of Japhleti, unto the coast of Beth-horon the nether, and to Gezer: and the goings out thereof are at the sea.

[4] So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their inheritance.

[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 Ataroth-addar, unto Beth-horon the upper;

[6] And the border went out toward the sea to Michmethah on the north side; and the border went about eastward unto Taanath-shiloh, and passed by it on the east to Janohah;

[7] And it went down from Janohah to Ataroth, and to Naarath, and came to Jericho, and went out at Jordan.

[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.

[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.

[10] And they drave not out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer: but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve f under tribute.
