King James VersionJoshua16


1 And the lot of the chil­dren of Joseph fell from Jor­dan by Jeri­cho, unto the wa­ter of Jeri­cho on the east, to the wilder­ness that goeth up from Jeri­cho through­out mount Bethel, 2 And goeth out from Bethel to Luz, and pas­seth along unto the bor­ders of Archi to Ataroth, 3 And goeth down west­ward to the coast of Japhleti, unto the coast of Beth­horon the nether, and to Gez­er: and the go­ings out there­of are at the sea. 4 So the chil­dren of Joseph, Man­asseh and Ephraim, took their in­her­i­tance. 5 And the bor­der of the chil­dren of Ephraim ac­cord­ing to their fam­i­lies was thus: even the bor­der of their in­her­i­tance on the east side was Atarothad­dar, unto Beth­horon the up­per; 6 And the bor­der went out to­ward the sea to Mich­methah on the north side; and the bor­der went about east­ward unto Taanathshiloh, and passed by it on the east to Janohah; 7 And it went down from Janohah to Ataroth, and to Naarath, and came to Jeri­cho, and went out at Jor­dan. 8 The bor­der went out from Tap­puah west­ward unto the riv­er Kanah; and the go­ings out there­of were at the sea. This is the in­her­i­tance of the tribe of the chil­dren of Ephraim by their fam­i­lies. 9 And the sep­a­rate cities for the chil­dren of Ephraim were among the in­her­i­tance of the chil­dren of Man­asseh, all the cities with their vil­lages. 10 And they drave not out the Canaan­ites that dwelt in Gez­er: but the Canaan­ites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve un­der trib­ute.
