Joshua 16:1-10 NIV

Joshua 16:1-10 NIV [1] The allotment for Joseph began at the Jordan, east of the springs of Jericho, and went up from there through the desert into the hill country of Bethel. [2] It went on from Bethel (that is, Luz ), crossed over to the territory of the Arkites in Ataroth, [3] descended westward to the territory of the Japhletites as far as the region of Lower Beth Horon and on to Gezer, ending at the Mediterranean Sea. [4] So Manasseh and Ephraim, the descendants of Joseph, received their inheritance. [5] This was the territory of Ephraim, according to its clans: The boundary of their inheritance went from Ataroth Addar in the east to Upper Beth Horon [6] and continued to the Mediterranean Sea. From Mikmethath on the north it curved eastward to Taanath Shiloh, passing by it to Janoah on the east. [7] Then it went down from Janoah to Ataroth and Naarah, touched Jericho and came out at the Jordan. [8] From Tappuah the border went west to the Kanah Ravine and ended at the Mediterranean Sea. This was the inheritance of the tribe of the Ephraimites, according to its clans. [9] It also included all the towns and their villages that were set aside for the Ephraimites within the inheritance of the Manassites. [10] They did not dislodge the Canaanites living in Gezer; to this day the Canaanites live among the people of Ephraim but are required to do forced labor.
