The tribe of Ephraim (Ezek 48:5-48:5)

“Adjoining the territory

Of Manasseh,

From the east side

To the west side,

Ephraim was

One portion.”

Once again, in a very summary fashion of east to west, the territory of Ephraim was next to Manasseh. This then would be a clear indication that this is the west Jordan area, since Ephraim did not have any territory on the east side of the Jordan River. Obviously, this is a very short summary of what appeared in Joshua, chapter 16.
