The LORD said to me, "See, I have begun to deliver Sihon and his country over to you. Now begin to conquer and possess his land."132
When Sihon and all his army came out to meet us in battle2 at Jahaz,
the LORD our God delivered3 him over to us and we struck him down,4 together with his sons and his whole army.
At that time we took all his towns and completely destroyeda5 them--men, women and children. We left no survivors.
But the livestock6 and the plunder7 from the towns we had captured we carried off for ourselves.
From Aroer8 on the rim of the Arnon Gorge, and from the town in the gorge, even as far as Gilead,9 not one town was too strong for us. The LORD our God gave10 us all of them.
But in accordance with the command of the LORD our God,11 you did not encroach on any of the land of the Ammonites,12 neither the land along the course of the Jabbok13 nor that around the towns in the hills.
