The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
39 Heshbon, and Jazer, with their pastures - a total of four towns. 39 Heshbon and Jazer, together with their pasturelands--four towns in all.
40 All these towns were assigned by lot to the Merarites, the remaining Levites - twelve towns. 40 All the towns allotted to the Merarite clans, who were the rest of the Levites, were twelve.
41 The Levites held forty-eight towns with their accompanying pastures within the territory of the People of Israel. 41 The towns of the Levites in the territory held by the Israelites were forty-eight in all, together with their pasturelands.
42 Each of these towns had pastures surrounding it - this was the case for all these towns. 42 Each of these towns had pasturelands surrounding it; this was true for all these towns.
43 And so God gave Israel the entire land that he had solemnly vowed to give to their ancestors. They took possession of it and made themselves at home in it. 43 So the LORD gave Israel all the land he had sworn to give their forefathers, and they took possession of it and settled there.
44 And God gave them rest on all sides, as he had also solemnly vowed to their ancestors. Not a single one of their enemies was able to stand up to them - God handed over all their enemies to them. 44 The LORD gave them rest on every side, just as he had sworn to their forefathers. Not one of their enemies withstood them; the LORD handed all their enemies over to them.
45 Not one word failed from all the good words God spoke to the house of Israel. Everything came out right. 45 Not one of all the LORD's good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.
