and the slope of the valleys that extends to the seat of Ar, and leans to the border of Moab."
And from there they continued to Beer; that is the well of which the LORD said to Moses, "Gather the people together, and I will give them water."
Then Israel sang this song: "Spring up, O well! --Sing to it! --
the well which the princes dug, which the nobles of the people delved with the scepter and with their staves." And from the wilderness they went on to Mat'tanah,
and from Mat'tanah to Nahal'iel, and from Nahal'iel to Bamoth,
and from Bamoth to the valley lying in the region of Moab by the top of Pisgah which looks down upon the desert.
Then Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,
"Let me pass through your land; we will not turn aside into field or vineyard; we will not drink the water of a well; we will go by the King's Highway, until we have passed through your territory."
But Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his territory. He gathered all his men together, and went out against Israel to the wilderness, and came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel.
And Israel slew him with the edge of the sword, and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as to the Ammonites; for Jazer was the boundary of the Ammonites.
And Israel took all these cities, and Israel settled in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all its villages.
