Territory of Manasseh
1 Now [this] was the lot° for the tribe° of aManasseh°, for he was the firstborn° of Joseph°. To Machir° the firstborn° of Manasseh°, the father° of Gilead°, Iwere allotted° Gilead° and Bashan°, because° he was a man° of war°. 2 So [the lot] was [made] for the rest° of the sons° of Manasseh° according to their families°: for the sons° of Abiezer° and for the sons° of Helek° and for the sons° of Asriel° and for the sons° of Shechem° and for the sons° of Hepher° and for the sons° of Shemida°; these° [were] the male° Idescendants° of Manasseh° the son° of Joseph° according to their families°.
3 ¶ However, aZelophehad°, the son° of Hepher°, the son° of Gilead°, the son° of Machir°, the son° of Manasseh°, had° no° sons°, only°° daughters°; and these° are the names° of his daughters°: Mahlah° and Noah°, Hoglah°, Milcah° and Tirzah°. 4 They came° near° before° Eleazar° the priest° and before° Joshua° the son° of Nun° and before° the leaders°, saying°, “The LORD° commanded° Moses° to give° us an inheritance° among° our brothers°.” So aaccording° to the Icommand° of the LORD° he gave° them an inheritance° among° their father’s° brothers°. 5 Thus there fell° ten° portions° to Manasseh°, besides°° the land° of Gilead° and Bashan°, which° is beyond°° the Jordan°, 6 because° the daughters° of Manasseh° received° an inheritance° among° his sons°. And the aland° of Gilead° belonged° to the rest° of the sons° of Manasseh°.
7 ¶ The border° of Manasseh° Iran° from Asher° to Michmethath° which° was east°° of Shechem°; then the border° went° IIsouthward° to the inhabitants° of En-tappuah°. 8 The land° of Tappuah° belonged° to Manasseh°, but aTappuah° on the border° of Manasseh° [belonged] to the sons° of Ephraim°. 9 The aborder° went° down° to the Ibrook° of Kanah°, southward° of the Ibrook° (these° cities° [belonged] to Ephraim° among° the cities° of Manasseh°), and the border° of Manasseh° [was] on the north° side° of the Ibrook° and IIit ended°° at the sea°. 10 The south° side° [belonged] to Ephraim° and the north° side° to Manasseh°, and the sea° was Itheir border°; and they reached° to Asher° on the north° and to Issachar° on the east°. 11 In Issachar° and in Asher°, aManasseh° had° Beth-shean° and its towns° and Ibleam° and its towns°, and the inhabitants° of Dor° and its towns°, and the inhabitants° of En-dor° and its towns°, and the inhabitants° of Taanach° and its towns°, and the inhabitants° of Megiddo° and its towns°, the third° is bNapheth°. 12 aBut the sons° of Manasseh° could° not take° possession° of these° cities°, because the Canaanites° persisted° in living° in that land°. 13 It came° about when° the sons° of Israel° became° strong°, athey put° the Canaanites° to forced° labor°, but they did not Idrive° them out completely°.

The lot of Manasseh.
1 ¶ There was² also a lotº for the tribeº of Manasseh;º for² he² [was] the firstbornº of Joseph;º [to wit], for Machirº the firstbornº of Manasseh,º the fatherº of Gilead:º because² he² was² a manº of war,º therefore he had² Gileadº and Bashan.º 2 There was² also [a lot] for the restºª of the childrenº of Manassehº by their families;º for the childrenº of Abiezer,º and for the childrenº of Helek,º and for the childrenº of Asriel,º and for the childrenº of Shechem,º and for the childrenº of Hepher,º and for the childrenº of Shemida:º these² [were] the maleº childrenº of Manassehº the sonº of Josephº by their families.º

7 ¶ And the coastº of Manassehº was² from Asherº² to Michmethah,º that² [lieth] beforeº² Shechem;º and the borderº went alongºª on² the right handº unto² the inhabitantsºª of Entappuah.º 8 [Now] Manassehº had² the landº of Tappuah:º but Tappuahº on² the borderº of Manassehº [belonged] to the childrenº of Ephraim;º 9 And the coastº descendedºª unto the riverº Kanah,º southwardº of the river:º these² citiesº of Ephraimº [are] amongº the citiesº of Manasseh:º the coastº of Manassehº also [was] on the north sideº² of the river,º and the outgoingsº of it were² at the sea:º 10 Southwardº [it was] Ephraim's,º and northwardº [it was] Manasseh's,º and the seaº is² his border;º and they met togetherºª in Asherº on the north,º² and in Issacharº on the east.º² 11 And Manassehº had² in Issacharº and in Asherº Bethsheanº and her towns,º and Ibleamº and her towns,º and the inhabitantsºª of Dorº and her towns,º and the inhabitantsºª of Endorº and her towns,º and the inhabitantsºª of Taanachº and her towns,º and the inhabitantsºª of Megiddoº and her towns,º [even] threeº countries.º

The children of Joseph obtain another lot.
14 And the childrenº of Josephº spakeºª unto²² Joshua,º saying,ºª Why² hast thou givenºª me [but] oneº lotº and oneº portionº to inherit,º seeing I² [am] a greatº people,º forasmuch² as¹ the LORDº hath blessedºª me hitherto?º²² 15 And Joshuaº answeredºª² them, If² thou² [be] a greatº people,º [then] get thee upºª to the woodº [country], and cut downºª for thyself there² in the landº of the Perizzitesº and of the giants,º if² mountº Ephraimº be too narrowºª for thee. 16 And the childrenº of Josephº said,ºª The hillº is not² enoughºª for us: and all² the Canaanitesº that dwellºª in the landº of the valleyº have chariotsº of iron,º [both they] who² [are] of Bethsheanº and her towns,º and [they] who² [are] of the valleyº of Jezreel.º 17 And Joshuaº spakeºª unto² the houseº of Joseph,º [even] to Ephraimº and to Manasseh,º saying,ºª Thou² [art] a greatº people,º and hast greatº power:º thou shalt not² have² oneº lotº [only]: 18 But² the mountainº shall be² thine; for² it² [is] a wood,º and thou shalt cut it down:ºª and the outgoingsº of it shall be² thine: for² thou shalt drive outºª² the Canaanites,º though² they have ironº chariots,º [and] though² they² [be] strong.º
