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 goeth up from Jericho throughout mount Beth-el,
16:2 And goeth out from Beth-el to Luz, and passeth along to the
borders of Archi to Ataroth,
16:3 And goeth down westward to the border of Japhleti, to the
border of Beth-horon the nether, and to Gezer: and the limits
of it are at the sea.
16:4 So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their
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 Ataroth-adar, to Beth-horon the upper:
16:6 And the border went out towards the sea to Michmethah on
the north side; and the border went about eastward to
Taanath-shiloh, 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 terminated at Jordan.
16:8 The border went out from Tappuah westward to the river
Kanah; and the limits of it were at the sea. This [is] the
inheritance of the tribe of the children of Ephraim by their
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 did not expel the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer:
but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites to this day, and
serve under tribute.
