Allotment for Ephraim and Manasseh...
And the lot for the children of Yoseph went out from the Yarden, by Yeriho, to the waters of Yeriho on the east, to the wilderness going up from Yeriho through the mountains to Beyth El,
and went out from Beyth El to Luz, and passed over to the border of the Arkites at Ataroth,
and went down westward to the boundary of the Yaphletites, as far as the boundary of Lower Beyth Horon to Gezer, and it ended at the sea.
Thus the children of Yoseph, Menashsheh and Ephrayim, inherited.
And the border of the children of Ephrayim, according to their clans, was: The border of their inheritance on the east side was Ataroth Addar as far as Upper Beyth Horon.
And the border went out toward the sea, to Mikmethath on the north, then the border went around eastward to Ta'anath Shiloh, and passed over it on the east of Yanohah,
and went down from Yanohah to Ataroth and Na'arah, reached to Yeriho, and came out at the Yarden.
From Tappuwah the border went westward to the wadi Qanah, and it ended at the sea. This was the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Ephrayim for their clans.
And the separate cities for the children of Ephrayim were in the midst of the inheritance of the children of Menashsheh, all the cities with their villages.
And they did not drive out the Kena'anites who dwelt in Gezer, so the Kena'anites dwell among the Ephrayimites to this day and have become compulsory labour.
