      1  The lot of Manasseh.
     7  His coast.
    12  The Canaanites not driven out.
    14  The children of Joseph obtain another lot.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - the firstborn.
       * Ge 41:51; 46:20; 48:18 De 21:17
    - Machir.
       * Ge 50:23 Nu 26:29; 27:1; 32:39,40 Jud 5:14 1Ch 2:23; 7:14,15
    - Gilead.
       * Nu 26:29; 32:33,40 De 3:13-15
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - the rest.
       * Nu 26:29-32
    - the children.
       * Jud 6:11; 8:2 1Ch 7:18
    - Abiezer.
       * Nu 26:30
    - Jeezer.  children of Asriel.
       * Nu 26:31
    - children of Hepher.
       * Nu 26:32
    
    VERSE 3
        * Nu 26:33; 27:1; 36:2-11
    
    
    VERSE 4 
     - Eleazar.
       * Jos 14:1 Nu 34:17-29
    - The Lord commanded.
       * Nu 27:6,7 Ga 3:28
    
    
    VERSE 5 
     - ten portions.
      As there were six sons and five daughters, among whom this
      division was to be made, there should be eleven portions: but
      Zelophehad, son of Hepher, having left five daughters in his
      place, neither he nor Hepher is reckoned.  The lot of Manasseh
      therefore was divided into ten parts; five for the five sons
      of Gilead, Abiezer, Helek, Asriel, Shechem, and Shemida; and
      five for the five daughters of Zelophehad, Mahlah, Noah,
      Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
    
       * :2,3,14
    - beside.
       * Jos 13:29-31 Nu 32:30-42
    
    VERSE 6
    
    
    VERSE 7 
     - Asher.
      Eusebius says this was a town in his time not far from
      Neapolis, towards Scythopolis or Bethshan; between which towns
      it is also placed by the old Jerusalem Itinerary.
    
    - Michmethah.
      Situated, probably, east of Shechem, though its precise
      situation, as well as that of many others, cannot, at this
      distance of time, be ascertained.  Many of these towns were
      small, and we may rationally conclude, slightly built; and
      consequently have perished more than two thousand years ago.
      It would therefore be useless now to look for such places;
      though in many instances, their ancient names have been
      preserved, and their sites identified.  Several towns even in
      England, mentioned by C'sar and other ancient writers, are no
      longer discernible; several have changed their names, and not
      a few their situation.
    
       * Jos 16:6-8
    - Shechem.
       * Jos 20:7; 21:21; 24:1,32 Ge 34:2; 37:12,14 Jud 9:1 1Ki 12:1,25

    VERSE 8 
     - of Tappuah.
       * Jos 12:17; 15:34,53; 16:8
    
    
    VERSE 9 
     - river Kanah.  or, brook of reeds.
      The brook Kanah seem to be what is now called Nahr el Kasab,
      which falls into the Mediterranean a few miles south of
      C'sarea of Palestine, mentioned by the Hon. C. L. Irby, and J.
      Mangles.
    
       * Jos 16:8
    - these cities.
       * Jos 16:9
    - the out-goings.
       * Jos 16:3,8; 19:29
    - the sea.  The Mediterranean.
    
    VERSE 10
    
    
    VERSE 11 
     - Manasseh.
       * Jos 16:9 1Ch 7:29
      Beth-shean, the Scythopolis of the Greek and Roman writers,
      was situated in the plain of Jordan, west of that river, 120
      furlongs (south) from Tiberias, according to Josephus, and 600
      furlongs (north) from Jerusalem.  (2 Mac 29 12:29.)  It was the
      largest city of the Decapolis, and the only one on that side
      of Jordan.  It is now called Bisan, 8 hours or 24 miles from
      Tiberias; and described by Dr. Richardson, exclusive of its
      ruins, as a "collection of miserable hovels, containing 200
      inhabitants."
    
       * 1Sa 31:10,12
    - Beth-shan.
       * 1Ki 4:12
    - Ibleam.
       * 2Ki 9:27 1Ch 6:70
    - Bileam.
    - Dor.
      Dor, according to Eusebius, was situated on the Mediterranean,
      nine miles from C'sarea Palestine, towards Carmel.  The
      village of Tortura, four leagues north of C'sarea, is supposed
      to nearly occupy it site.
    
       * Jos 12:23 Jud 1:27 1Ki 4:11
    - Endor.
       * 1Sa 28:7 Ps 83:10
