Joshua 13:8

Tribal Lands East of the Jordan

13:8 The other half of Manasseh, 1  Reuben, and Gad received their allotted tribal lands beyond the Jordan, 2  just as Moses, the Lord’s servant, had assigned them.

Joshua 13:29-32


13:29 Moses assigned land to the half-tribe of Manasseh 3  by its clans. 13:30 Their territory started at 4  Mahanaim and encompassed all Bashan, the whole realm of King Og of Bashan, including all sixty cities in Havvoth Jair 5  in Bashan. 13:31 Half of Gilead, Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities in the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were assigned to the descendants of Makir son of Manasseh, to half the descendants of Makir by their clans.

13:32 These are the land assignments made by Moses 6  on the plains of Moab east of the Jordan River opposite Jericho. 7 

1 tn The MT reads “with him,” which is problematic, since the reference would be to the other half of the tribe of Manasseh (not the half mentioned in v. 7).

2 tn Heb “received their inheritance, which Moses had assigned to them beyond the Jordan.”

3 tn Heb “assigned to the half-tribe of Manasseh, and it belonged to the half-tribe of Manasseh.”

4 tn The words “their territory started at” are not in the Hebrew text, but have been supplied for clarification.

5 sn The Hebrew name Havvoth Jair means “the tent villages of Jair.”

6 tn Heb “These are [the lands] which Moses gave as an inheritance.”

7 tn Heb “beyond the Jordan, east of Jericho.” The word “River” is not in the Hebrew text, but has been supplied to clarify the meaning.
