Chapter 16

Territory of Ephraim

1 Then the lot for the sons of Joseph went from the Jordan at Jericho to the waters of Jericho on the east into athe wilderness, going up from Jericho through the hill country to Bethel.

2 It went from Bethel to Luz, and acontinued to the border of the Archites at Ataroth.

3 It went down westward to the territory of the Japhletites, as far as the territory of lower aBeth-horon even to bGezer, and 1it ended at the sea.

4 The asons of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, received their inheritance.

5 Now this was the territory of the sons of Ephraim according to their families: the border of their inheritance eastward was aAtaroth-addar, as far as upper Beth-horon.

6 Then the border went westward at aMichmethath on the north, and the border turned about eastward to Taanath-shiloh and continued beyond it to the east of Janoah.

7 It went down from Janoah to Ataroth and to aNaarah, then reached Jericho and came out at the Jordan.

8 From aTappuah the border continued westward to the 1brook of Kanah, and 2it ended at the sea. This is the inheritance of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim according to their families,

9 together with the cities which were set apart for the sons of Ephraim in the midst of the inheritance of the sons of Manasseh, all the cities with their villages.

10 aBut they did not 1drive out the Canaanites who lived in Gezer, so bthe Canaanites live in the midst of Ephraim to this day, and they became forced laborers.

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
