161Umda ongezantsi womhlaba owabelwa inzala kaJosefu wawuqala eJordan kufuphi neJeriko, kwindawo eyayikwicala langasempumalanga yemithombo yaseJeriko, wenjenjeya ubhekisa ngasentlango. Wasuka eJeriko walityhutyha eleentaba ukusa eBhetele. 2Ukusuka eBhetele (ekwakuthiwa yiLuzi) wadlulela eAtaroti, apho ayemi khona ama-Arki. 3Wehla wajonga ngasentshona kummandla wamaYafeleti, waya kuma kummandla waseBhete-horon engasezantsi. Wedlula apho ujonge eGezere, waya kuma ngolwandle.

4Lo mhlaba waba lilifa lenzala kaJosefu, izizwe zakwaEfrayim noManase.
