All of these cities were fortified with high walls and double-door gates with bars across the gates. We also captured a large number of unwalled villages.
We claimed them all for God, destroying every city, including men, women, and children--as we did to King Sihon of Heshbon.
However, we did loot the cities, taking all of the cattle and goods.
We took the land of the two Amorite kings east of the Jordan River, from the Arnon Valley to Mount Hermon.
(The Sidonians call Mount Hermon by the name Sirion, and the Amorites call it Senir.)
We took all of the cities of the plateau, all of Gilead, and all of Bashan as far as Salcah and Edrei, cities of Og's kingdom in Bashan.
(Of the Rephaim only King Og of Bashan was left. His bed was made of iron and was more than 13 feet long and 6 feet wide. It is still in the Ammonite city of Rabbah.)
At that time we took possession of this land. I gave the tribes of Reuben and Gad the land north of Aroer near the Arnon Valley and half of the mountain region of Gilead with its cities.
I gave the rest of Gilead and all of Bashan ruled by Og to half of the tribe of Manasseh. (The whole territory of Argob in Bashan used to be called the land of the Rephaim.
Jair, a descendant of Manasseh, took the whole territory of Argob as far as the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites. The settlements in Bashan he named Havvoth Jair after himself. This is still their name today.)
I gave Gilead to Machir.
