1 Lesi siyisabelo sesizwe sakwaManase, ngokuba wayeyizibulo likaJosefa. UMakiri-ke, izibulo likaManase, uyise kaGileyadi, wathola elakwaGileyadi neBashani, lokhu eyindoda yempi.
2 Abanye abantwana bakwaManase babelwa nabo ngemindeni yabo: abantwana bakwa-Abiyezeri, nabantwana bakwaHeleki, nabantwana bakwa-Asiriyeli, nabantwana bakwaShekemi, nabantwana bakwaHeferi, nabantwana bakwaShemida; labo babe ngabantwana besilisa bakwaManase indodana kaJosefa ngemindeni yabo.
3 Kepha uSelofehadi kaHeferi kaGileyadi kaMakiri kaManase wayengenamadodana, enamadodakazi odwa; lawa angamagama amadodakazi: oMahela, noNowa, noHogila, noMilka, noTirisa.
4 Asondela phambi kuka-Eleyazare umpristi, naphambi kukaJoshuwa indodana kaNuni, naphambi kwezikhulu, athi: “UJehova wamyala uMose ukuba asinike ifa phakathi kwabafowethu.” Wayesewanika ifa phakathi kwabafowabo bakayise njengesiyalezo sikaJehova.
5 UManase wabelwa izabelo eziyishumi ngaphandle kwelakwaGileyadi neBashani ngaphesheya kweJordani,
6 ngokuba amadodakazi kaManase aba nefa phakathi kwamadodana akhe; izwe lakwaGileyadi laba ngelamanye amadodana kaManase.
7 Umkhawulo kaManase wasuka kwa-Asheri, waya eMikemetha elingaphambi kweShekemi; umkhawulo wawusuya ngakwesokunene kwabakhileyo e-Eni Taphuwa.
8 Izwe laseTaphuwa lalingelikaManase, kepha iTaphuwa elisemkhawulweni kaManase lalingelabantwana bakwa-Efrayimi.
9 Umkhawulo wehlela emfudlaneni iKhana ngaseningizimu komfula; leyo mizi yayingeka-Efrayimi phakathi kwemizi kaManase; umkhawulo kaManase wawungasenyakatho komfula; ukuphuma kwawo kwakuselwandle;
10 okwaseningizimu kwakungokuka-Efrayimi, okwasenyakatho kwakungokukaManase, ulwandle lwalungumkhawulo wakhe; bafinyelela kwa-Asheri ngasenyakatho nakwa-Isakare ngasempumalanga.
11 Kwa-Isakare nakwa-Asheri uManase wabelwa iBeti Sheyani kanye nemizana yalo, neJibileyamu kanye nemizana yalo, nabakhileyo eDori kanye nemizana yalo, nabakhileyo e-Eni Dori kanye nemizana yalo, nabakhileyo eThahanaki kanye nemizana yalo, nabakhileyo eMegido kanye nemizana yalo eyizimpakama ezintathu.
12 Kodwa abantwana bakwaManase babengenakunqoba leyo mizi; kepha amaKhanani ayethanda ukuhlala kulelo zwe.
13 Kwathi lapho abantwana bakwa-Israyeli sebeqinile, bawasebenzisa amaKhanani, abawaxoshanga ngokupheleleyo.
14 Abantwana bakwaJosefa bakhuluma kuJoshuwa, bathi: “Unginikeleni isabelo sibe sinye nje nesinqamu sibe sinye kuphela, kube yifa lami, lokhu ngiyisizwe esikhulu, njengokuba uJehova ungibusisile kuze kube manje, na?”
15 UJoshuwa wathi kubo: “Uma uyisizwe esikhulu, khuphukela ehlathini, uzicabele khona ezweni lamaPherizi nakwelamaRefa, lokhu izintaba zakwa-Efrayimi ziminyene kuwe.”
16 Bathi abantwana bakwaJosefa: “Izintaba azisanele; onke amaKhanani ahlala ezweni lesigodi anezinqola zensimbi, wona aseBeti Sheyani kanye nemizana yalo nawo asesiGodini saseJizreyeli.”
17 UJoshuwa wayesekhuluma kuyo indlu kaJosefa, naku-Efrayimi, nakuManase, ethi: “Uyisizwe esikhulu, unamandla amakhulu; awuyikuba nasabelo esisodwa nje;
18 kepha izintaba ziyakuba ngezakho; noma ziyihlathi, woligawula; namaphethelo alo mawabe ngawakho, ngokuba uyakuwaxosha amaKhanani, nakuba enezinqola zensimbi nakuba enamandla.”
