Why does it mention the inheritances of the two halves of Menasheh?

1.

Radak: It explains how it was that half of Menasheh was with Gad and Reuven.

2.

Malbim: Refer to 22:7:2:4.

2)

The previous verse said that Yehoshua sent them and blessed them. Why is this repeated?

1.

Rashi: It teaches that he sent Chetzi Menasheh, just like he sent Gad and Reuven. 1

2.

Radak: It was repeated to put this next to the great wealth that he sent with them (after interrupting to teach why Menasheh was split).

3.

Radak citing Bereishis Rabah 35:3: After they received permission to leave, they returned after two days and asked permission a second time.

4.

Malbim: Because Menasheh was divided, they needed an extra Brachah by themselves.

5.

Malbim (8): Chetzi Menasheh in Ever ha'Yarden needed to delay to divide with the half in Eretz Yisrael proper, so they left after Gad and Reuven; Yehoshua sent and blessed them when they were ready to leave.
