The lot came out for the children of Yosef from the Yarden at Yericho, at the waters of Yericho on the east, even the wilderness, going up from Yericho through the hill-country to Beit-El;
and it went out from Beit-El to Luz, and passed along to the border of the Arki to `Atrot;
and it went down westward to the border of the Yafleti, to the border of Beit-Horon the lower, even to Gezer; and the goings out of it were at the sea.
The children of Yosef, Menashsheh and Efrayim, took their inheritance.
The border of the children of Efrayim according to their families was [thus]: the border of their inheritance eastward was `Atarot-Addar, to Beit-Horon the upper;
and the border went out westward at Mikhmetat on the north; and the border turned about eastward to Ta'anat-Shiloh, and passed along it on the east of Yano`ach;
and it went down from Yano`ach to `Atrot, and to Na`arah, and reached to Yericho, and went out at the Yarden.
From Tappuach the border went along westward to the brook of Kanah; and the goings out of it were at the sea. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Efrayim according to their families;
together with the cities which were set apart for the children of Efrayim in the midst of the inheritance of the children of Menashsheh, all the cities with their villages.
They didn't drive out the Kana`anim who lived in Gezer: but the Kana`anim dwell in the midst of Efrayim to this day, and are become servants to do forced labor.
