Joshua 17 (WEBP)

[1] This was the lot for the tribe of Manasseh, for he was the firstborn of Joseph. As for Machir the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead, because he was a man of war, therefore he had Gilead and Bashan.
[2] So this was for the rest of the children of Manasseh according to their families: for the children of Abiezer, for the children of Helek, for the children of Asriel, for the children of Shechem, for the children of Hepher, and for the children of Shemida. These were the male children of Manasseh the son of Joseph according to 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. These are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
[4] They came to Eleazar the priest, and to Joshua the son of Nun, and to the princes, saying, “Yahweh commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brothers.” Therefore according to the commandment of Yahweh he gave them an inheritance among the brothers of their father.
[5] Ten parts fell to Manasseh, in addition to the land of Gilead and Bashan, which is beyond the Jordan;
[6] because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons. The land of Gilead belonged to the rest of the sons of Manasseh.
[7] The border of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethath, which is before Shechem. The border went along to the right hand, to the inhabitants of En Tappuah.
[8] The land of Tappuah belonged to Manasseh; but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim.
[9] The border went down to the brook of Kanah, southward of the brook. These cities belonged to Ephraim among the cities of Manasseh. The border of Manasseh was on the north side of the brook, and ended at the sea.
[10] Southward it was Ephraim’s, and northward it was Manasseh’s, and the sea was his border. They reached to Asher on the north, and to Issachar on the east.
[11] Manasseh had three heights in Issachar, in Asher Beth Shean and its towns, and Ibleam and its towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and its towns, and the inhabitants of Endor and its towns, and the inhabitants of Taanach and its towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and its towns.
[12] Yet the children of Manasseh couldn’t drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.
[13] When the children of Israel had grown strong, they put the Canaanites to forced labor, and didn’t utterly drive them out.
[14] The children of Joseph spoke to Joshua, saying, “Why have you given me just one lot and one part for an inheritance, since we are a numerous people, because Yahweh has blessed us so far?”
[15] Joshua said to them, “If you are a numerous people, go up to the forest, and clear land for yourself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the Rephaim, since the hill country of Ephraim is too narrow for you.”
[16] The children of Joseph said, “The hill country is not enough for us. All the Canaanites who dwell in the land of the valley have chariots of iron, both those who are in Beth Shean and its towns, and those who are in the valley of Jezreel.”
[17] Joshua spoke to the house of Joseph, that is, to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying, “You are a numerous people, and have great power. You shall not have one lot only;
[18] but the hill country shall be yours. Although it is a forest, you shall cut it down, and it’s farthest extent shall be yours; for you shall drive out the Canaanites, though they have chariots of iron, and though they are strong.”

Joshua 17 (KJVS)

[1] There was also a lot H1486 for the tribe H4294 of Manasseh H4519; for he [was] the firstborn H1060 of Joseph H3130; [to wit], for Machir H4353 the firstborn H1060 of Manasseh H4519, the father H1 of Gilead H1568: because he was a man H376 of war H4421, therefore he had Gilead H1568 and Bashan H1316.
[2] There was also [a lot] for the rest H3498 (8737) of the children H1121 of Manasseh H4519 by their families H4940; for the children H1121 of Abiezer H44, and for the children H1121 of Helek H2507, and for the children H1121 of Asriel H844, and for the children H1121 of Shechem H7928, and for the children H1121 of Hepher H2660, and for the children H1121 of Shemida H8061: these [were] the male H2145 children H1121 of Manasseh H4519 the son H1121 of Joseph H3130 by their families H4940.
[3] But Zelophehad H6765, the son H1121 of Hepher H2660, the son H1121 of Gilead H1568, the son H1121 of Machir H4353, the son H1121 of Manasseh H4519, had no sons H1121, but daughters H1323: and these [are] the names H8034 of his daughters H1323, Mahlah H4244, and Noah H5270, Hoglah H2295, Milcah H4435, and Tirzah H8656.
[4] And they came near H7126 (8799) before H6440 Eleazar H499 the priest H3548, and before H6440 Joshua H3091 the son H1121 of Nun H5126, and before H6440 the princes H5387, saying H559 (8800), The LORD H3068 commanded H6680 (8765) Moses H4872 to give H5414 (8800) us an inheritance H5159 among H8432 our brethren H251. Therefore according to the commandment H6310 of the LORD H3068 he gave H5414 (8799) them an inheritance H5159 among H8432 the brethren H251 of their father H1.
[5] And there fell H5307 (8799) ten H6235 portions H2256 to Manasseh H4519, beside the land H776 of Gilead H1568 and Bashan H1316, which [were] on the other side H5676 Jordan H3383;
[6] Because the daughters H1323 of Manasseh H4519 had H5157 (8804) an inheritance H5159 among H8432 his sons H1121: and the rest H3498 (8737) of Manasseh’s H4519 sons H1121 had the land H776 of Gilead H1568.
[7] And the coast H1366 of Manasseh H4519 was from Asher H836 to Michmethah H4366, that [lieth] before H6440 Shechem H7927; and the border H1366 went along H1980 (8804) on the right hand H3225 unto the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Entappuah H5887.
[8] [Now] Manasseh H4519 had the land H776 of Tappuah H8599: but Tappuah H8599 on the border H1366 of Manasseh H4519 [belonged] to the children H1121 of Ephraim H669;
[9] And the coast H1366 descended H3381 (8804) unto the river H5158 Kanah H7071, southward H5045 of the river H5158: these cities H5892 of Ephraim H669 [are] among H8432 the cities H5892 of Manasseh H4519: the coast H1366 of Manasseh H4519 also [was] on the north side H6828 of the river H5158, and the outgoings H8444 of it were at the sea H3220:
[10] Southward H5045 [it was] Ephraim’s H669, and northward H6828 [it was] Manasseh’s H4519, and the sea H3220 is his border H1366; and they met together H6293 (8799) in Asher H836 on the north H6828, and in Issachar H3485 on the east H4217.
[11] And Manasseh H4519 had in Issachar H3485 and in Asher H836 Bethshean H1052 and her towns H1323, and Ibleam H2991 and her towns H1323, and the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Dor H1756 and her towns H1323, and the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Endor H5874 and her towns H1323, and the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Taanach H8590 and her towns H1323, and the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Megiddo H4023 and her towns H1323, [even] three H7969 countries H5316.
[12] Yet the children H1121 of Manasseh H4519 could H3201 (8804) not drive out H3423 (8687) [the inhabitants of] those cities H5892; but the Canaanites H3669 would H2974 (8686) dwell H3427 (8800) in that land H776.
[13] Yet it came to pass, when the children H1121 of Israel H3478 were waxen strong H2388 (8804), that they put H5414 (8799) the Canaanites H3669 to tribute H4522; but did not utterly H3423 (8687) drive them out H3423 (8689).
[14] And the children H1121 of Joseph H3130 spake H1696 (8762) unto Joshua H3091, saying H559 (8800), Why hast thou given H5414 (8804) me [but] one H259 lot H1486 and one H259 portion H2256 to inherit H5159, seeing I [am] a great H7227 people H5971, forasmuch as H5704 the LORD H3068 hath blessed H1288 (8765) me hitherto H3541?
[15] And Joshua H3091 answered H559 (8799) them, If thou [be] a great H7227 people H5971, [then] get thee up H5927 (8798) to the wood H3293 [country], and cut down H1254 (8765) for thyself there in the land H776 of the Perizzites H6522 and of the giants H7497, if mount H2022 Ephraim H669 be too narrow H213 (8804) for thee.
[16] And the children H1121 of Joseph H3130 said H559 (8799), The hill H2022 is not enough H4672 (8735) for us: and all the Canaanites H3669 that dwell H3427 (8802) in the land H776 of the valley H6010 have chariots H7393 of iron H1270, [both they] who [are] of Bethshean H1052 and her towns H1323, and [they] who [are] of the valley H6010 of Jezreel H3157.
[17] And Joshua H3091 spake H559 (8799) unto the house H1004 of Joseph H3130, [even] to Ephraim H669 and to Manasseh H4519, saying H559 (8800), Thou [art] a great H7227 people H5971, and hast great H1419 power H3581: thou shalt not have one H259 lot H1486 [only]:
[18] But the mountain H2022 shall be thine; for it [is] a wood H3293, and thou shalt cut it down H1254 (8765): and the outgoings H8444 of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out H3423 (8686) the Canaanites H3669, though they have iron H1270 chariots H7393, [and] though they [be] strong H2389.

Young’s Literal Translation

Joshua 17 (YLT)

[1] And the lot is for the tribe of Manasseh (for he is first-born of Joseph), for Machir first-born of Manasseh, father of Gilead, for he hath been a man of war, and his are Gilead and Bashan.
[2] And there is for the sons of Manasseh who are left, for their families; for the sons of Abiezer, and for the sons of Helek, and for the sons of Asriel, and for the sons of Shechem, and for the sons of Hepher, and for the sons of Shemida; these are the children of Manasseh son of Joseph-the males-by their families.
[3] As to Zelophehad, son of Hepher, son of Gilead, son of Machir, son of Manasseh, he hath no children except daughters, and these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah,
[4] and they draw near before Eleazar the priest, and before Joshua son of Nun, and before the princes, saying, ‘Jehovah commanded Moses to give to us an inheritance in the midst of our brethren;’ and he giveth to them, at the command of Jehovah, an inheritance in the midst of the brethren of their father.
[5] And ten portions fall to Manasseh, apart from the land of Gilead and Bashan, which are beyond the Jordan;
[6] for the daughters of Manasseh have inherited an inheritance in the midst of his sons, and the land of Gilead hath been to the sons of Manasseh who are left.
[7] And the border of Manasseh is from Asher to Michmethah, which is on the front of Shechem, and the border hath gone on unto the right, unto the inhabitants of En-Tappuah.
[8] To Manasseh hath been the land of Tappuah, and Tappuah unto the border of Manasseh is to the sons of Ephraim.
[9] And the border hath come down to the brook of Kanah, southward of the brook; these cities of Ephraim are in the midst of the cities of Manasseh, and the border of Manasseh is on the north of the brook, and its outgoings are at the sea.
[10] Southward is to Ephraim and northward to Manasseh, and the sea is his border, and in Asher they meet on the north, and in Issachar on the east.
[11] And Manasseh hath 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 Taanach and its towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and its towns, three counties.
[12] And the sons of Manasseh have not been able to occupy these cities, and the Canaanite is desirous to dwell in this land,
[13] and it cometh to pass when the sons of Israel have been strong, that they put the Canaanite to tribute, and have not utterly dispossessed him.
[14] And the sons of Joseph speak with Joshua, saying, ‘Wherefore hast thou given to me an inheritance-one lot and one portion, and I a numerous people? hitherto hath Jehovah blessed me.’
[15] And Joshua saith unto them, ‘If thou art a numerous people, go up for thee to the forest, then thou hast prepared for thee there, in the land of the Perizzite, and of the Rephaim, when mount Ephraim hath been narrow for thee.’
[16] And the sons of Joseph say, ‘The hill is not found to us, and a chariot of iron is with every Canaanite who is dwelling in the land of the valley-to him who is in Beth-Shean and its towns, and to him who is in the valley of Jezreel.’
[17] And Joshua speaketh unto the house of Joseph, to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying, ‘Thou art a numerous people, and hast great power; thou hast not one lot only,
[18] because the mountain is thine; because it is a forest-thou hast prepared it, and its outgoings have been thine; because thou dost dispossess the Canaanite, though it hath chariots of iron-though it is strong.’
