16 And the land that fell by lot*+ to the descendants of Joseph+ was from the Jordan at Jerʹi·cho to the waters east of Jerʹi·cho, through the wilderness going up from Jerʹi·cho into the mountainous region of Bethʹel.+ 2 It extended from Bethʹel belonging to Luz and continued to the boundary of the Arʹchites at Atʹa·roth, 3 then it went down westward to the boundary of the Japhʹle·tites as far as the boundary of Lower Beth-hoʹron+ and Geʹzer,+ and it ended at the sea.
4 So Joseph’s descendants,+ Ma·nasʹseh and Eʹphra·im, took possession of their land.+ 5 The boundary of the descendants of Eʹphra·im by their families was as follows: The boundary of their inheritance to the east was Atʹa·roth-adʹdar,+ as far as Upper Beth-hoʹron,+ 6 and the boundary extended to the sea. Mich·meʹthath+ was on the north, and the boundary went around east to Taʹa·nath-shiʹloh, and it passed on the east to Ja·noʹah. 7 Then it went down from Ja·noʹah to Atʹa·roth and Naʹa·rah and reached to Jerʹi·cho+ and extended to the Jordan. 8 From Tapʹpu·ah+ the boundary continued westward to the Wadi of Kaʹnah, and it ended at the sea.+ This is the inheritance of the tribe of Eʹphra·im by their families; 9 the descendants of Eʹphra·im also had enclave cities in the midst of the inheritance of Ma·nasʹseh,+ all the cities and their settlements.
