若蘇厄書 Joshua
1若瑟的子孫抽籤分得的土地,從耶里哥對面的約但河起,到耶里哥東面的水源,沿著曠野,由耶里哥向上到貝特耳山區,1The land given by lot to the descendants of Joseph stretched from the Jordan opposite Jericho eastward. From Jericho onward the southern border climbed the highlands into the hill country as far as Bethel;
2再由貝特耳路次,沿著阿爾基人的邊境,延至阿塔洛特。2it left Bethel and Luz and went on toward the border of the Archites of Ataroth;
3然後向西下至雅費肋提人的境界,直到下貝特曷龍的邊境,以迄於革則爾,直達於海。3then it went westward to the area of the Japhletites as far as the area of Lower Beth-horon. From there it went to Gezer, and reached the Mediterranean Sea.
4這是若瑟的兒子默納協和厄弗辣因分得的產業。4The tribes of Manasseh and Ephraim, descendants of Joseph, divided this inheritance among themselves.
5以下是厄弗辣因子孫按照家族分得的土地:他們產業的邊界,東面是阿塔洛特阿達爾,直到上貝特曷龍,5The border of the tribe of Ephraim ran from Ataroth-addar as far as Upper Beth-horon,
6直達於海。北端是米革默塔特,由此向東轉向塔納特史羅,越過雅諾亞東部,6and it ended at the Mediterranan Sea. Michmethath was to the north. From there the border turned east towards Tanaath-shiloh and ran beyond it on the east to Janoah.
7再由雅諾亞下至阿塔洛特和納阿辣,經耶里哥直達約但河。7Then it went down from Janaoah to Ataroth and Naarah, touched Jericho and ended at the Jordan.
8又從塔普亞往西到卡納谷,直達於海:以上是厄弗辣因子孫按照家族分得的產業。8From Tappuah the border went westward to the stream Kanah and ended at the Mediterranean Sea. This was the land given to the tribe of Ephraim according to their clans,
9此外,屬默納協子孫的產業中,還有給厄弗辣因子孫保留的城市,──城市和所屬的村鎮。9as well as the towns set apart for the Ephraimites inside the territory of the descendants of Manasseh, all those towns and their villages.
10但是他們未能將住在革則爾的客納罕人趕走,因此客納罕人直到今日還住在厄弗辣因人中間,充當苦役。10The Canaanites living in Gezer were not driven out; they have lived among the Ephraimites to the present day, but are submitted to obligatory works.
