Moses provided for the clans of the Reubenite tribe.
Their territory ran from Aroer by the rim of the Arnon Valley and the city in the middle of the ravine, and the whole plateau as far as Medeba.
It included Heshbon and all its cities that are on the plateau: Dibon, Bamoth-baal, Beth-baal-meon,
Jahaz, Kedemoth, Mephaath,
Kiriathaim, Sibmah, the Zereth-shahar highlands,
Beth-peor, the slopes of Pisgah, and Beth-jeshimoth.
It included all the cities of the plateau and the whole kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, who ruled in Heshbon. Moses had struck him down, along with Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba, the leaders of Midian. They had lived in the land as princes of Sihon.
In addition to those others slain, the Israelites killed the fortune-teller Balaam, Beor's son, with the sword.
The border of the people of Reuben was the Jordan and the territory next to it. This was the legacy of the people of Reuben—for their clans, their cities, and their settlements.
