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.
There was also [a lot] for the rest12 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.
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.
And they came near4 before Eleazar the priest, and before Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying,2 The LORD commanded14 Moses to give2 us an inheritance among our brethren.

And the coast descended1 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:

And the children of Joseph spake17 unto Joshua, saying,2 Why hast thou given1 me [but] one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I [am] a great people, forasmuch as the LORD hath blessed14 me hitherto?
And Joshua answered4 them, If thou [be] a great people, [then] get thee up3 to the wood [country], and cut down14 for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow1 for thee.
And the children of Joseph said,4 The hill is not enough11 for us: and all the Canaanites that dwell6 in the land of the valley have chariots of iron, [both they] who [are] of Bethshean and her towns, and [they] who [are] of the valley of Jezreel.
