These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the Gadites,1 clan by clan.
This is what Moses had given to the half-tribe of Manasseh, that is, to half the family of the descendants of Manasseh, clan by clan:
The territory extending from Mahanaim2 and including all of Bashan,3 the entire realm of Og king of Bashan4--all the settlements of Jair5 in Bashan, sixty towns,
half of Gilead, and Ashtaroth and Edrei (the royal cities of Og in Bashan).6 This was for the descendants of Makir7 son of Manasseh--for half of the sons of Makir, clan by clan.832
This is the inheritance Moses had given when he was in the plains of Moab9 across the Jordan east of Jericho.1033
But to the tribe of Levi, Moses had given no inheritance;11 the LORD, the God of Israel, is their inheritance,12 as he promised them.13
