The territory of the half tribe of Manasseh (1 Chr 5:23-5:23)

“The members of the half-tribe of Manasseh lived in their land. They were very numerous from Bashan to Baal-hermon, Senir, and Mount Hermon.”

The half-tribe of Manasseh was a large group. They lived north of Bashan, where the Gadites dominated. Baal-hermon is east of the Jordan River, near Mount Hermon. Senir may refer to the snow top mountains in the Lebanon Mountains, south of Damascus. This tribe land was closest to Damascus, northeast of the Sea of Galilee. The names of these 3 areas are only mentioned a few times and usually with regard to this eastern half tribe of Manasseh.
