5 And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, besides the land of Gilead and Bashan, which were on the other side Jordan;

6 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.

7 T And the coast of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah, g that lieth before Shechem; and the border went along on the right hand, unto the inhabitants of Entappuah.

8 Now Manasseh had the land of Tappuah but Tappuah, on the border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim.

9 And the coast descended unto the 2 river Kanah, southward of the river. These cities h of Ephraim are among the cities of Manasseh: the coast of Manasseh also was on the north side of the river, and the out-goings of it were at the sea: 10 Southward it was Ephraim's, and northward it was Manasseh's and the sea is his border; and they met together in Asher on the north, and in Issachar on the east.

11 And i Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher, Beth-shean k and her towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, and the inhabitants of En-dor and her towns, and the inhabitants m of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns, even three countries.

12 Yet n the children of Manasseh could not drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.

13 Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute; o but did not utterly drive them out.

14 And the children of Joseph | B. C. 1444. spake unto Joshua, saying, Why hast thou given me but one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I am a great people, forasmuch as the LORD hath blessed p me hitherto? 15 And Joshua answered thein, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the 3 giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.

9 And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities, into seven parts in a book, and came again to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.


13 And the border went over from thence toward Luz, to the side of Luz (which n is Beth-el) southward; and the border descended to Ataroth-adar, near the hill that lieth on the south side of the nether Beth-horon.o

14 And the border was drawn thence, and compassed the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that lieth before Beth-horon southward; and the goings out thereof were at Kirjath-baal, (which is Kirjath-jearim) a city of the children of Judah. This was the west quarter.
