And they came nearbeforeEleazar the priest, and beforeJoshua the son of Nun, and before the princes,saying , The LORDcommandedMoses to give us an inheritanceamong our brethren. Therefore according to the commandment of the LORD he gave them an inheritanceamong the brethren of their father.5
And there felltenportions to Manasseh, beside the land of Gilead and Bashan, which were on the other sideJordan;6
Because the daughters of Manassehhad an inheritanceamong his sons: and the rest of Manasseh'ssons had the land of Gilead.7
And the coast of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah, that lieth beforeShechem; and the border went along on the right hand unto the inhabitants of Entappuah.8
Now Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim;9
And the coastdescended unto the riverKanah,asouthward of the river: these cities of Ephraim are among the cities of Manasseh: the coast of Manasseh also was on the north side of the river, and the outgoings of it were at the sea:10Southward it was Ephraim's, and northward it was Manasseh's, and the sea is his border; and they met together in Asher on the north, and in Issachar on the east.11
And Manasseh had in Issachar and in AsherBethshean and her towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Endor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns, even threecountries.12
Yet the children of Manassehcould not drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaaniteswoulddwell in that land.13
Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong , that they put the Canaanites to tribute; but did not utterly drive them out .
And the children of Josephspake unto Joshua,saying , Why hast thou given me but onelot and oneportion to inherit, seeing I am a greatpeople, forasmuch as the LORD hath blessed me hitherto?
