- The eastern border of the tribe of Yosef was the Jordan river, opposite Jericho, and it stretched until Jericho [although Jericho itself remained within the tribe of Binyamin].
- It then went to the west, towards Beis Eil and towards Beis Choron and Gazer and Tapuach [which remained in the land of Ephraim].
- They did not conquer the city of Gazer, and it remains inhabited by the Canaanites until this very day. They were appointed as slaves.
