"1Then we turned and went up the road to Bashan, and Og, king of Bashan, awith all his peoplecame out to meet us in battle at Edrei.
"But the LORDsaid to me, 'Do not fear him, for I have delivered him and all his people and his land into your hand; and you shall do to him just as you did to Sihonking of the Amorites, wholived at Heshbon.'
"So the LORD our GoddeliveredOgalso, king of Bashan, with all his people into our hand, and we smotebthem untilnosurvivor was cleft.
"We capturedall his cities at that time; there was not a citywhich we did not take from them: sixtycities, all the region of 2Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
5"Allthese were citiesfortified with highwalls, gates and bars, besides a greatmanydunwalledtowns.
"We eutterlydestroyed them, as we did to 3Sihonking of Heshbon, f4utterlydestroyinggthe men, women and children of everycity.
"5But all the animals and the spoil of the cities we took as our booty.
"6Thus we took the land at that time from the hand of the twokings of the Amoriteswho were beyond the Jordan, from the hvalley of Arnon to MountHermon9
(Sidonians7callHermon8Sirion, and the Amoritescall it 9Senir ):
10all the cities of the plateau and allGilead and 10allBashan, as far as Salecah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
(For onlyOgking of Bashan was left of the remnant of the 11Rephaim. Behold, his ibedstead was an ironjbedstead; it is in 12Rabbah of the sons of Ammon. Its length was ninecubits and its widthfourcubitskby ordinarycubit.)
"So we tookpossession of thisland at that time. From 13Aroer, which is by the lvalley of Arnon, and half the hillcountry of 14Gilead and its cities I gave to the Reubenites and to the Gadites.
"The rest of Gilead and allBashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh, all the region of Argob (concerning allBashan, it is called the land of Rephaim.
1415Jair the son of Manassehtookall the region of Argob as far as the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, and calledmit, that is, Bashan, after his own name, nHavvoth-jair, as it is to thisday.)
"16To Machir I gaveGilead.
"To the Reubenites and to the Gadites I gave from Gilead even as far as the ovalley of Arnon, the middle of the pvalleyqas a border and as far as the rriver17Jabbok, the border of the sons of Ammon;
the Arabah also, with the Jordansas a border, from t18Chinnereth19even as far as the sea of the Arabah, 20the SaltSea, uat the foot of the slopes of Pisgah on the east.
"Then I commanded you at that time, saying, '21The LORD your God has given you thisland to possess it; 22all you valiantmen shall crossoverarmedbefore your brothers, the sons of Israel.
'23But your wives and your littleones and your livestock (I know that you have 24muchlivestock ) shall remain in your citieswhich I have given you,
2025until the LORDgivesrest to your fellowcountrymen as to you, and they alsopossess the landwhich the LORD your God will give them beyond the Jordan. 26Then you may returneveryman to his possessionwhich I have given you.'
"I commandedJoshua at that time, saying, 'Your eyes have seenall that the LORD your God has done to thesetwokings; so the LORD shall do to all the kingdoms into which you are about to cross.
'Do not fear them, for the LORD your God27is the one fighting for you.'
"I also pleaded with the LORD at that time, saying,
'O LordvGOD, You have begun to show Your servant28Your greatness and Your stronghand; for what29god is there in heaven or on earthwho can do such works and mightyacts as Yours?
'Let me, I pray, crossover and see the 30fairland that is beyond the Jordan, wthat goodhillcountry and Lebanon.'
"But 31the LORD was angry with me on your account, and would not listen to me; and the LORDsaid to me, 'xEnough! Speak to Me nomore of thismatter.
27'Go up to the top of 32Pisgah and lift up your eyes to the west and north and south and east, and see it with your eyes, 33for you shall not crossoverthisJordan.
'34But chargeJoshua and encourage him and strengthen him, 35for he shall goacrossyat the head of thispeople, and he will give them as an inheritance the landwhich you will see.'
"So we remained in the valleyopposite36Beth-peor.
