Ephraim’s Inheritance

1And the lot to the sons of Joseph went forth from Jordan of Jericho to the water of Jericho, from the sunrising to the desert it went up from Jericho into the mount of the House of God; 2And it went forth from the House of God to Luz and passed over to the bound of Archi to Ataroth; 3And it went down to the sea to the bound of Japhleti even to the bound of the House of Horon the lower, and even to Gezer: and its goings out were the sea.

4And the sons of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, will inherit. 5And the bound of the sons of Ephraim will be according to their families; and the bound of their inheritance will be from the sunrisings, Ataroth Addar, even to the House of Horon above. 6And the bound went forth to the sea to Michmethah from the north; and the bound encompassed from the sunrisings to Taanath-Shiloh, and passed over it from the sunrisings to Janohah; 7And it went down from Janohah to Ataroth and to Naarath, and struck upon Jericho, and went out at Jordan. 8The bound went from Tuppuah to to the sea to the torrent Kanah; and the goings out were the sea. This the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim according to their families. 9And the cities were separated to the sons of Ephraim in the midst of the inheritance of the sons of Manasseh, all the cities and their enclosures. 10And they drove not out the Canaanite dwelling in Gezer: and the Canaanite dwelt in the midst of Ephraim even to this day, and he will be serving for tribute.
