Boundries of Joseph and Ephrain
16:1 And the lot of the children of Joseph fell from Jordan
by Jericho, to the water of Jericho on the east, to the
wilderness that goes up from Jericho throughout mount Bethel,
16:2 And goes out from Bethel to Luz, and passes along to the borders of Archi to Ataroth,
16:3 And goes down westward to the coast of Japhleti, to 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, to 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 to 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 to 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 drove not out the Canaanites that dwelt in
Gezer but the Canaanites stay among the Ephraimites to this
day, and serve under tribute.
