But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle
These were to be left behind: for
I know that ye have much cattle;
which made the countries of Gilead and Bashan, so famous for pasturage, agreeable to them; see ( Numbers 32:1 ) these, under the care of servants, and also their wives and children,
shall abide in your cities which I have given you;
and which they rebuilt and repaired, ( Numbers 32:34-42 ) .
