Joshua 15:58 – 17:6

15:58 Halhul, Beth-zur, and Gedor;
15:59 And Maarath and Beth-anoth and Eltekon: six cities with their villages.
15:60 Kiriath-baal (this is Kiriath-jearim) and Rabbah: two cities with their villages.
15:61 In the wilderness: Beth-arabah, Middin, and Secacah;
15:62 And Nibshan and the City of Salt and En-gedi: six cities with their villages.
15:63 But as for the Jebusites, the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not dispossess them; thus the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah in Jerusalem to this day.
16:1 And the lot for the children of Joseph went from the Jordan at Jericho, east of the waters of Jericho, to the wilderness, going up from Jericho into the hill country to Bethel,
16:2 And went from Bethel to Luz, and passed on to the border of the Archites at Ataroth,
16:3 And went down westward to the border of the Japhletites, to the border of Lower Beth-horon and to Gezer; and its end was the sea.
16:4 And the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, received their inheritance.
16:5 And the border of the children of Ephraim according to their families was thus: The border for their inheritance on the east was from Ataroth-addar to Upper Beth-horon;
16:6 And the border went to the sea. On the north was Michmethath, and the border went around eastward to Taanath-shiloh, and passed by it to the east of Janoah,
16:7 And went down from Janoah to Ataroth, then to Naarah, and reached Jericho, and went to the Jordan.
16:8 From Tappuah the border went westward to the brook of Kanah; and its end was the sea. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Ephraim according to their families,
16:9 Together with the cities that were set apart for the children of Ephraim in the midst of the inheritance of the children of Manasseh, all the cities with their villages.
16:10 Yet they did not dispossess the Canaanites who dwelt in Gezer, but the Canaanites dwell in the midst of Ephraim to this day and have become forced labor.
17:1 And this was the lot for the tribe of Manasseh, for he was Joseph’s firstborn. To Machir, the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead, Gilead and Bashan had been given, since he was a man of war.
17:2 Therefore the lot was for the rest of the children of Manasseh according to their families: for the children of Abiezer and for the children of Helek and for the children of Asriel and for the children of Shechem and for the children of Hepher and for the children of Shemida; these were the male children of Manasseh the son of Joseph according to their families.
17:3 But Zelophehad the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but daughters. And these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
17:4 And they came before Eleazar the priest and before Joshua the son of Nun and before the leaders, saying, Jehovah commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brothers. Therefore he gave them an inheritance among their father’s brothers according to the commandment of Jehovah.
17:5 And ten portions fell to Manasseh, besides the land of Gilead and Bashan, which is across the Jordan,
17:6 Because the daughters of Manasseh received an inheritance among his sons. And the land of Gilead belonged to the rest of the children of Manasseh.
