Joshua 17:12-13

Context
17:12 But the men 1  of Manasseh were unable to conquer these cities; the Canaanites managed 2  to remain in those areas. 17:13 Whenever the Israelites were strong militarily, they forced the Canaanites to do hard labor, but they never totally conquered them. 3 

1 tn Heb “sons”; “men” has been used in the translation because the context involves the conquest of cities; therefore, warriors (hence males) would be in view here.

2 tn Or “were determined.”

3 sn On the Israelites’ failure to conquer the Canaanites completely, see Judg 1:27-28.
