The Holy Bible - The Book of Joshua, Chapter 17 (Latin)
1There 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.
2There 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.
3But 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.
4And 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.
5And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, beside the land of Gilead and Bashan, which were on the other side Jordan;
6Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.
7And 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 Entappuah.
8Now Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh belonged to the children of Ephraim;
9And 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:
10Southward 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.
11And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher Bethshean and her towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Endor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns, even three countries.
12Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out the inhabitants of those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.
13Yet 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.
14And 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?
15And 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.
16And 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 Bethshean and her towns, and they who are of the valley of Jezreel.
17And 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:
18But 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.
1cecidit autem sors tribui Manasse ipse est enim primogenitus Ioseph Machir primogenito Manasse patri Galaad qui fuit vir pugnator habuitque possessionem Galaad et Basan
2et reliquis filiorum Manasse iuxta familias suas filiis Abiezer et filiis Elech et filiis Esrihel et filiis Sechem et filiis Epher et filiis Semida isti sunt filii Manasse filii Ioseph mares per cognationes suas
3Salphaad vero filio Epher filii Galaad filii Machir filii Manasse non erant filii sed solae filiae quarum ista sunt nomina Maala et Noa Egla et Melcha et Thersa
4veneruntque in conspectu Eleazari sacerdotis et Iosue filii Nun et principum dicentes Dominus praecepit per manum Mosi ut daretur nobis possessio in medio fratrum nostrorum deditque eis iuxta imperium Domini possessionem in medio fratrum patris earum
5et ceciderunt funiculi Manasse decem absque terra Galaad et Basan trans Iordanem
6filiae enim Manasse possederunt hereditatem in medio filiorum eius terra autem Galaad cecidit in sortem filiorum Manasse qui reliqui erant
7fuitque terminus Manasse ab Aser Machmathath quae respicit Sychem et egreditur ad dextram iuxta habitatores fontis Taffuae
8etenim in sorte Manasse ceciderat terra Taffuae quae est iuxta terminos Manasse filiorum Ephraim
9descenditque terminus vallis Harundineti in meridiem torrentis civitatum Ephraim quae in medio sunt urbium Manasse terminus Manasse ab aquilone torrentis et exitus eius pergit ad mare
10ita ut ab austro sit possessio Ephraim et ab aquilone Manasse et utramque claudat mare et coniungantur sibi in tribu Aser ab aquilone et in tribu Isachar ab oriente
11fuitque hereditas Manasse in Isachar et in Aser Bethsan et viculi eius et Ieblaam cum villulis suis et habitatores Dor cum oppidis suis habitatores quoque Hendor cum villulis suis similiterque habitatores Thanach cum villulis suis et habitatores Mageddo cum viculis suis et tertia pars urbis Nofeth
12nec potuerunt filii Manasse has subvertere civitates sed coepit Chananeus habitare in terra ista
13postquam autem convaluerunt filii Israhel subiecerunt Chananeos et fecerunt sibi tributarios nec interfecerunt eos
14locutique sunt filii Ioseph ad Iosue atque dixerunt quare dedisti mihi possessionem sortis et funiculi unius cum sim tantae multitudinis et benedixerit mihi Dominus
15ad quos Iosue ait si populus multus es ascende in silvam et succide tibi spatia in terra Ferezei et Rafaim quia angusta est tibi possessio montis Ephraim
16cui responderunt filii Ioseph non poterimus ad montana conscendere cum ferreis curribus utantur Chananei qui habitant in terra campestri in qua sitae sunt Bethsan cum viculis suis et Iezrahel mediam possidens vallem
17dixitque Iosue ad domum Ioseph Ephraim et Manasse populus multus es et magnae fortitudinis non habebis sortem unam
18sed transibis ad montem et succides tibi atque purgabis ad habitandum spatia et poteris ultra procedere cum subverteris Chananeum quem dicis ferreos habere currus et esse fortissimum
