וַיֵּצֵא הַגּוֹרָל לִבְנֵי יוֹסֵף מִיַּרְדֵּן יְרִיחוֹ לְמֵי יְרִיחוֹ מִזְרָחָה הַמִּדְבָּר עֹלֶה מִירִיחוֹ בָּהָר בֵּית־אֵל׃ 16:1
Josh. 16:1 And the lot for the children of Joseph would go out from the Jordan at Jericho by the waters of Jericho to the east, go up from Jericho in the hill country to Beth-el.
וְיָצָא מִבֵּית־אֵל לוּזָה וְעָבַר אֶל־גְּבוּל הָאַרְכִּי עֲטָרוֹת׃ 16:2
Josh. 16:2 And it would go out from Beth-el, turn away and cross to the border of the Archites, Ataroth.
וְיָרַד־יָמָּה אֶל־גְּבוּל הַיַּפְלֵטִי עַד גְּבוּל בֵּית־חוֹרֹן תַּחְתּוֹן וְעַד־גָּזֶר וְהָיוּ (תצאתו) [תֹצְאֹתָיו] יָמָּה׃ 16:3
Josh. 16:3 Then it would go down to the west to the border of the Japhletites, as far as the border of Lower Beth-horon and as far as Gezer, and its extensions would be to the sea.
The third word from the end contains an error. It is written in the singular number; to be consistent with appearances of the similar word in other chapters, it should be plural, as provided in the brackets.
וַיִּנְחֲלוּ בְנֵי־יוֹסֵף מְנַשֶּׁה וְאֶפְרָיִם׃ 16:4
Josh. 16:4 And the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim took their inheritance.
וַיְהִי גְּבוּל בְּנֵי־אֶפְרַיִם לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם וַיְהִי גְּבוּל נַחֲלָתָם מִזְרָחָה עַטְרוֹת אַדָּר עַד־בֵּית חוֹרֹן עֶלְיוֹן׃ 16:5
Josh. 16:5 And the border of the children of Ephraim was according to their families; and the border of their inheritance to the east was Atroth-addar as far as Upper Beth-horon.
וְיָצָא הַגְּבוּל הַיָּמָּה הַמִּכְמְתָת מִצָּפוֹן וְנָסַב הַגְּבוּל מִזְרָחָה תַּאֲנַת שִׁלֹה וְעָבַר אוֹתוֹ מִמִּזְרַח יָנוֹחָה׃ 16:6
Josh. 16:6 And the border would go out toward the west of Michmethath from the north; then the border would turn around to the east of Taanath-shiloh and pass along it from east of Janoach.
וְיָרַד מִיָּנוֹחָה עֲטָרוֹת וְנַעֲרָתָה וּפָגַע בִּירִיחוֹ וְיָצָא הַיַּרְדֵּן׃ 16:7
Josh. 16:7 Then it would go down from Janoach to Ataroth and to Naarah and reach into Jericho and come out to the Jordan.
מִתַּפּוּחַ יֵלֵךְ הַגְּבוּל יָמָּה נַחַל קָנָה וְהָיוּ תֹצְאֹתָיו הַיָּמָּה זֹאת נַחֲלַת מַטֵּה בְנֵי־אֶפְרַיִם לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם׃ 16:8
Josh. 16:8 From Tappuach the border would go to the west to the brook Kanah and its extensions would be to the sea. This was the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Ephraim according to their families,
