1 約瑟的子孫拈鬮所得之地是從靠近耶利哥的約但河起，以耶利哥東邊的水為界：從耶利哥上去，通過山地的曠野，到伯特利；【NIV】The allotment for Joseph began at the Jordan, east of the springs of Jericho, and went up from there through the desert into the hill country of Bethel.
【NIV】It went on from Bethel (that is, Luz), crossed over to the territory of the Arkites in Ataroth,
【NIV】descended westward to the territory of the Japhletites as far as the region of Lower Beth Horon and on to Gezer, ending at the Mediterranean Sea.
【NIV】So Manasseh and Ephraim, the descendants of Joseph, received their inheritance.
5 以法蓮子孫的境界，按著宗族所得的，記在下面：他們地業的東界是亞他綠亞達到上伯和崙；【NIV】This was the territory of Ephraim, according to its clans: The boundary of their inheritance went from Ataroth Addar in the east to Upper Beth Horon
【NIV】and continued to the Mediterranean Sea. From Mikmethath on the north it curved eastward to Taanath Shiloh, passing by it to Janoah on the east.
【NIV】Then it went down from Janoah to Ataroth and Naarah, touched Jericho and came out at the Jordan.
8 從他普亞往西，到加拿河，直通到海為止。這就是以法蓮支派按著宗族所得的地業。【NIV】From Tappuah the border went west to the Kanah Ravine and ended at the Mediterranean Sea. This was the inheritance of the tribe of the Ephraimites, according to its clans.
【NIV】It also included all the towns and their villages that were set aside for the Ephraimites within the inheritance of the Manassites.
10 他們沒有趕出住基色的迦南人；迦南人卻住在以法蓮人中間，成為做苦工的僕人，直到今日。【NIV】They did not dislodge the Canaanites living in Gezer; to this day the Canaanites live among the people of Ephraim but are required to do forced labor.
