Deuteronomy 3:12 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 3:12

And this land, which we possessed at that time
Or took possession of, having conquered it; for it still remained in their possession:

from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon:
on the borders of Moab, from thence as far as Gilead was the land which was taken from Sihon king of Heshbon, ( Deuteronomy 2:36 )

and half Mount Gilead, and the cities thereof:
which were taken from Og king of Bashan, ( Deuteronomy 3:10 )

gave I unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites;
at their request, on certain conditions to be performed by them, afterwards repeated.

Deuteronomy 3:12 In-Context

10 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.
12 And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.
13 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.
14 Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own name, Bashanhavothjair, unto this day.
