Then we turned , and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came outagainst us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.2
And the LORDsaid unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihonking of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.3
So the LORD our Goddelivered into our handsOg also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.4
And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescorecities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.5
All these cities were fenced with highwalls,gates, and bars; beside unwalledtowns a greatmany .
And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihonking of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men,women, and children, of every city.7
But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves.
And we took at that timeout of the hand of the twokings of the Amorites the land that was on this sideJordan, from the river of Arnon unto mountHermon;9
(Which Hermon the SidonianscallSirion; and the Amoritescall it Shenir;)
All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei,cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.11
For only Ogking of Bashanremained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon?ninecubits was the length thereof, and fourcubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.12
And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the riverArnon, and halfmountGilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.13
And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og,gave I unto the halftribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan,which was called the land of giants.14Jair the son of Manassehtook all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own name,Bashanhavothjair , unto this day.15
And I gaveGilead unto Machir.16
And unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites I gave from Gilead even unto the riverArnonhalf the valley, and the border even unto the riverJabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;17
The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast thereof, from Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, even the saltsea, under Ashdothpisgahaeastward.18
And I commanded you at that time,saying , The LORD your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass overarmedbefore your brethren the children of Israel, all that are meetb for the war.19
But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have given you;
Until the LORD have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and until they also possess the land which the LORD your God hath given them beyondJordan: and then shall ye return every man unto his possession, which I have given you.
And I commandedJoshua at that time,saying , Thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these twokings: so shall the LORDdo unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest .
Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you.
And I besought the LORD at that time,saying ,
O LordGOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mightyhand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?25
I pray thee, let me go over , and see the goodland that is beyondJordan, that goodlymountain, and Lebanon.26
But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the LORDsaid unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.27
Get thee up into the top of Pisgah,c and lift up thine eyeswestward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.28
But chargeJoshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go overbefore this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see .
So we abode in the valley over againstBethpeor.
