The tribe of Manasseh (Ezek 48:4-48:4)

“Adjoining the territory

Of Naphtali,

From the east side

To the west side,

Manasseh was

One portion.”

Once again, in a very summary fashion of east to west, the territory of Manasseh was next to Naphtali. However, instead of having two portions as in Joshua, chapters 13 and 17, there is only one portion mentioned here. Even that is not clear, whether it is on the east side of the Jordan River or the west side. The assumption might be that it is only on the west side, since there was no talk of any east bank settlements.
