1 Cecidit autem sors tribui Manasse "ipse est enim pri mogenitus Ioseph C; Machir primogenito Manasse patri Galaad, quia fuit vir pugnator, accepit in possessionem Galaad et Basan.
2 Et reliqui filiorum Manasse acceperunt iuxta familias suas: filii Abiezer et filii Helec et filii Asriel et filii Sechem et filii Hepher et filii Semida: isti sunt filii Manasse filii Ioseph, mares per cognationes suas.
3 Salphaad vero filio Hepher filii Galaad filii Machir filii Manasse non erant filii, sed solae filiae, quarum ista sunt nomina: Maala et Noa, Hegla et Melcha et Thersa.
4 Veneruntque in conspectu Eleazari sacerdotis et Iosue filii Nun et principum dicentes: "Dominus praecepit per manum Moysi, ut daretur nobis possessio in medio fratrum nostrorum" Deditque eis iuxta imperium Domini possessionem in medio fratrum patris earum.
5 Et ceciderunt funiculi Manasse decem, absque terra Galaad et Basan trans Iordanem.
6 Filiae enim Manasse acceperunt hereditatem in medio filiorum eius. Terra autem Galaad cecidit in sortem filiorum Manasse, qui reliqui erant.
7 Fuitque terminus Manasse ab Aser: Machmethath, quae respicit Sichem et egreditur ad dextram in Iasib apud fontem Thapphuae.
8 Etenim in sorte Manasse ceciderat terra Thapphuae; Thapphua autem ipsa, quae est iuxta terminos Manasse, fuit filiis Ephraim.
9 Descenditque terminus ad torrentem Cana. In meridie torrentis civitates sunt Ephraim in medio urbium Manasse. Terminus Manasse est ab aquilone torrentis, et exitus eius pergit ad mare,
10 ita ut ab austro sit possessio Ephraim et ab aquilone Manasse, et utramque claudat mare, et attingunt tribum Aser ab aquilone et tribum Issachar ab oriente.
11 Fuitque hereditas Manasse in Issachar et in Aser: Bethsan et filiae eius et Ieblaam cum filiabus suis et habitatores Dor cum filiabus suis, habitatores quoque Endor cum filiabus suis; similiterque habitatores Thanach cum filiabus suis et habitatores Mageddo cum filiabus suis et tertia pars regionis Nopheth.
12 Nec potuerunt filii Manasse has occupare civitates, sed Chananaeus permansit in terra ista.
13 Postquam autem convaluerunt filii Israel, subiecerunt Chananaeos et fecerunt sibi tributarios nec expulerunt eos.
14 Locutique sunt filii Ioseph ad Iosue atque dixerunt: "Quare dedisti mihi possessionem sortis et funiculi unius, cum sim tantae multitudinis et benedixerit mihi Dominus?"
15 Ad quos Iosue ait: "Si populus multus es, ascende in silvam et succide tibi spatia in terra Pherezaei et Raphaim, quia angusta est tibi possessio montis Ephraim"
16 Cui responderunt filii Ioseph: "Montana non sufficiunt nobis, et ferreis curribus utuntur omnes Chananaei, qui habitant in terra campestri, Bethsan cum filiabus suis et illi, qui sunt in planitie Iezrahel"
17 Dixitque Iosue ad domum Ioseph, Ephraim et Manasse: "Populus multus es et magnae fortitudinis; non habebis sortem unam,
18 sed transibis ad montem et succides tibi atque purgabis ad habitandum spatia; et poteris ultra procedere cum subverteris Chananaeum, qui ferreos habet currus et est fortis"
King James Version
1 There was also a lot for the tribe of Manasseh; for he was the firstborn of Joseph; to wit, for Machir the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead: because he was a man of war, therefore he had Gilead and Bashan.
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.
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.
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.
5 And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, beside the land of Gilead and Bashan, which were on the other side Jordan;
6 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.
7 ¶ And the coast of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah, that lieth before Shechem; and the border went along on the right hand unto the inhabitants of En-tappuah.
8 Now Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim;
9 And the coast descended unto the river Kanah, southward of the river: these cities of Ephraim are among the cities of Manasseh: the coast of Manasseh also was on the north side of the river, and the outgoings of it were at the sea:
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.
11 And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher Beth-shean and her towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, and the inhabitants of En-dor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns, even three countries.
12 Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.
13 Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute; but did not utterly drive them out.
14 And the children of Joseph spake unto 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 blessed me hitherto?
15 And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.
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 her towns, and they who are of the valley of Jezreel.
17 And Joshua spake unto 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:
18 But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong.
