Division of the Land

12 Of the land that we took over at that time, I gave the Reubenites and the Gadites the territory north of Aroer1 by the Arnon Gorge, including half the hill country of Gilead, together with its towns. 13 The rest of Gilead and also all of Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh.2 (The whole region of Argob in Bashan used to be known as a land of the Rephaites.3 14 Jair,4 a descendant of Manasseh, took the whole region of Argob as far as the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites;5 it was named6 after him, so that to this day Bashan is called Havvoth Jair.a ) 15 And I gave Gilead to Makir.7 16 But to the Reubenites and the Gadites I gave the territory extending from Gilead down to the Arnon Gorge (the middle of the gorge being the border) and out to the Jabbok River,8 which is the border of the Ammonites. 17 Its western border was the Jordan in the Arabah,9 from Kinnereth10 to the Sea of the Arabah11 (the Salt Seab12), below the slopes of Pisgah. 18 I commanded you at that time: "The LORD your God has given13 you this land to take possession of it. But all your able-bodied men, armed for battle, must cross over ahead of your brother Israelites.14 19 However, your wives,15 your children and your livestock16 (I know you have much livestock) may stay in the towns I have given you, 20 until the LORD gives rest to your brothers as he has to you, and they too have taken over the land that the LORD your God is giving them, across the Jordan. After that, each of you may go back to the possession I have given you."
