The Borders of the Sons of Joseph

And [5were 1the 2borders 3of the sons 4of Joseph] from the Jordan by Jericho from the east wilderness; and it shall ascend from Jericho unto the mountainous area into Beth-el. And it shall go forth from Beth-el to Luz, and it shall go by unto the borders of Archi Ataroth. And it shall go to the west by the borders of Japhleti unto the borders of Beth-horon the part below, and unto Gezer; and [2shall be 1their outer reaches] to the sea. And [7inherited 1the 2sons 3of Joseph -- 4Manasseh 5and 6Ephraim].

The Borders of Ephraim

And [4were 1the borders 2of the sons 3of Ephraim] according to their peoples; and [5were 1the 2borders 3of their inheritance] from the east -- Ataroth Addar unto Beth-horon the upper. And [3shall go 1the 2borders] to the sea unto Michmethah from the north, and [3shall go by 1the 2border] unto eastwards into Taanath-shiloh, and it shall go towards the east to Janoah; and it shall go down from Janoah to Ataroth, and their towns, and to Naarath, and it shall come to Jericho, and pass out at the Jordan. And from Tappuah [3will go 1the 2borders] west unto the rushing stream Kanah; and [2will be 1its outer reaches] at the sea. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim according to their peoples. And the [2cities 1separated] to the sons of Ephraim were in the midst of the inheritance of the sons of Manasseh, all the cities, and their towns. 10 And [2did not 3destroy 1Ephraim] the Canaanite dwelling in Gezer; but [3dwelt 1the 2Canaanite] in Ephraim until this day, and they became [2subject to tribute 1bondmen].
