Deuteronomy 3:8-17 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
8 So at that time we took from these two kings of the Amorites1 the territory east of the Jordan, from the Arnon Gorge as far as Mount Hermon.2 9 (Hermon is called Sirion3 by the Sidonians; the Amorites call it Senir.)4 10 We took all the towns on the plateau, and all Gilead, and all Bashan as far as Salecah5 and Edrei, towns of Og's kingdom in Bashan. 11 (Only Og king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaites.6 His beda was made of iron and was more than thirteen feet long and six feet wide.b It is still in Rabbah7 of the Ammonites.)

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 Aroer8 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.9 (The whole region of Argob in Bashan used to be known as a land of the Rephaites.10 14 Jair,11 a descendant of Manasseh, took the whole region of Argob as far as the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites;12 it was named13 after him, so that to this day Bashan is called Havvoth Jair.c ) 15 And I gave Gilead to Makir.14 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,15 which is the border of the Ammonites. 17 Its western border was the Jordan in the Arabah,16 from Kinnereth17 to the Sea of the Arabah18 (the Salt Sead19), below the slopes of Pisgah.
