The tribe of Reuben rebuilt the cities of Heshbon, Elealeh, Kiriathaim,
Nebo, Baal Meon (whose names were changed), and Sibmah. These are the names they gave the cities they rebuilt.
The descendants of Machir, son of Manasseh, went to Gilead, captured it, and forced out the Amorites who were there.
So Moses gave Gilead to the people of Machir (the descendants of Manasseh), and they lived there.
Then Jair, a descendant of Manasseh, captured the settlements in Gilead. He called them Havvoth Jair [Settlements of Jair].
Nobah captured Kenath and its villages. He named it Nobah after himself.
