Journal Through the Bible: Week 88 Saturday

I Chronicles 7:20-40

The end of this chapter covers portions of the descendants of Ephraim and Asher. The Ephraim list concentrates on the genealogy of Joshua, the leader of the Children of Israel following the death of Moses and one of only two of the original twelve spies who believed that God would give the land to the people.

This passage also describes the inheritance and possessions of these tribes. Ephraim's description states that his border was near Manasseh. Since both Ephraim and Manasseh were the sons of Joseph, the son of Jacob that received the double-portion as a birthright, it says that this is where the children of Joseph lived.

The descendants of Asher are noted for being mighty men of valor and chief of the princes. They had a ready army available for war.
