Joshua 17


17:1 There was also a lot for the tribe of Manasseh; for he
 [was] the first-born of Joseph; [to wit], for Machir the
 first-born of Manasseh, the father of Gilead: because he was a
 man of war, therefore he had Gilead and Bashan.
17:2 There was also [a lot] for the rest of the children of
 Manasseh by 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 by 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 near before Eleazar the priest, and before
 Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying, The LORD
 commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brethren:
 therefore according to the commandment of the LORD he gave them
 an inheritance among the brethren of their father.
17:5 And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, besides the land
 of Gilead and Bashan, which [were] on the other side of Jordan;
17:6 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among
 his sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of
 Gilead.
17:7 And the border of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah,
 that [lieth] before Shechem; and the border went along on the
 right hand to the inhabitants of En-tappuah.
17:8 [Now] Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the
 border of Manasseh [belonged] to the children of Ephraim;
17:9 And the border descended to the river Kanah, southward of
 the river. These cities of Ephraim [are] among the cities of
 Manasseh: the border of Manasseh also [was] on the north side
 of the river, and the limits of it were at the sea:
17:10 Southward [it was] Ephraim's, and northward [it was]
 Manasseh's, and the sea is his border; and they met together in
 Asher on the north, and in Issachar on the east.
17:11 And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher 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 Tanach and its towns, and the inhabitants of
 Megiddo and its towns, [even] three countries.
17:12 Yet the children of Manasseh could not expel [the
 inhabitants of] those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in
 that land.
17:13 Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel had
 become strong, that they subjected the Canaanites to tribute;
 but did not utterly expel them.
17:14 And the children of Joseph spoke to Joshua, saying, Why
 hast thou given me [but] one lot and one portion to inherit,
 seeing I [am] a great people, forasmuch as the LORD hath
 hitherto blessed me?
17:15 And Joshua answered them, If thou [art] a great people,
 [then] go up to the wood, and cut down for thyself there in the
 land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim is
 too narrow for thee.
17:16 And the children of Joseph said, The hill is not enough
 for us: and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the
 valley have chariots of iron, [both they] who [are] of
 Beth-shean and its towns, and [they] who [are] of the valley of
 Jezreel.
17:17 And Joshua spoke to the house of Joseph, [even] to Ephraim
 and to Manasseh, saying, Thou [art] a great people, and hast
 great power: thou shalt not have one lot [only]:
17:18 But the mountain shall be thine; for it [is] a wood, and
 thou shalt cut it down: and the limits of it shall be thine:
 for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron
 chariots, [and] though they [are] strong.
