Half-Tribe of Manasseh

HALF-TRIBE OF MANASSEH. The part of Manasseh settled in Gilead and Bashan E of the Jordan. Like Reuben and Gad, they were obliged to help the main body of the Hebrews in the conquest of Pal. (Josh 1:12-18). They shared in the general enmity between the Trans-Jordanian tribes and the western tribes (Judg 12).
