Territory of Ephraim

1 Then the lot for the sons of Joseph went from the Jordan at Jericho to the waters of Jericho on the east into 1the wilderness, going up from Jericho through the hill country to Bethel. 2 It went from Bethel to Luz, and 2continued to the border of the Archites at Ataroth. 3 It went down westward to the territory of the Japhletites, as far as the territory of lower 3Beth-horon even to 4Gezer, and ait ended at the sea. 4 The 5sons of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, received their inheritance. 5 Now this was the territory of the sons of Ephraim according to their families: the border of their inheritance eastward was 6Ataroth-addar, as far as upper Beth-horon. 6 Then the border went westward at 7Michmethath on the north, and the border turned about eastward to Taanath-shiloh and continued beyond it to the east of Janoah. 7 It went down from Janoah to Ataroth and to 8Naarah, then reached Jericho and came out at the Jordan. 8 From 9Tappuah the border continued westward to the bbrook of Kanah, and cit ended at the sea. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim according to their families, 9 together with the cities which were set apart for the sons of Ephraim in the midst of the inheritance of the sons of Manasseh, all the cities with their villages. 10 10But they did not ddrive out the Canaanites who lived in Gezer, so 11the Canaanites live in the midst of Ephraim to this day, and they became forced laborers .
