The Territory of Ephraim
4 The people of Joseph, Manas′seh and E′phraim, received their inheritance.
5 The territory of the E′phraimites by their families was as follows: the boundary of their inheritance on the east was At′aroth-ad′dar as far as Upper Beth-hor′on, 6 and the boundary goes thence to the sea; on the north is Mich-me′thath; then on the east the boundary turns round toward Ta′anath-shi′loh, and passes along beyond it on the east to Jan-o′ah, 7 then it goes down from Jan-o′ah to At′aroth and to Na′arah, and touches Jericho, ending at the Jordan. 8 From Tap′puah the boundary goes westward to the brook Kanah, and ends at the sea. Such is the inheritance of the tribe of the E′phraimites by their families, 9 together with the towns which were set apart for the E′phraimites within the inheritance of the Manas′sites, all those towns with their villages. 10 However they did not drive out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer: so the Canaanites have dwelt in the midst of E′phraim to this day but have become slaves to do forced labor.
