Joshua 17

The lot of Manasseh.

Joshua 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. Joshua 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.

Joshua 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. Joshua 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. Joshua 17:5 And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, besides the land of Gilead and Bashan, which [were] on the other side of Jordan; Joshua 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.

His coast.

Joshua 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. Joshua 17:8 [Now] Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh [belonged] to the children of Ephraim; Joshua 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: Joshua 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. Joshua 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.

The Canaanites not driven out.

Joshua 17:12 Yet the children of Manasseh could not expel [the inhabitants of] those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land. Joshua 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.

The children of Joseph obtain another lot.

Joshua 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? Joshua 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. Joshua 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. Joshua 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]: Joshua 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.
