Answer: Ephriam
Explanation:
According to the Bible, Joshua belonged to the tribe of Ephraim. There's evidence for this in several passages:Numbers 13:8: When Moses sends twelve spies to scout the land of Canaan, one of them is Joshua, identified as "Joshua son of Nun, of the tribe of Ephraim" (NIV).Joshua 19:49-50: After conquering Canaan, Joshua receives his own inheritance in the territory of Ephraim, specifically in Timnath-serah.1 Chronicles 7:27: This genealogical record names Joshua son of Nun as descended from Ephraim.Therefore, based on biblical accounts, Joshua's tribal affiliation is most reliably considered to be Ephraim.
