The Synopsis Shouldn't Be Longer Than the ChapterBy Rabbi Jack Abramowitz
A short chapter – a mere ten verses – starts a description of the territory of the sons of Joseph. Their territory extended from the Jordan opposite Jericho to Beth-El. In addition to their own territory, Ephraim had cities that extended into the territory of Menashe. Canaanite residents remained in Gezer, one of these cities, and they became laborers.
