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 We took all the towns of the plateau, everything in Gilead, everything in Bashan, as far as Salecah and Edrei, the border towns of Bashan, Og's kingdom.
11 Og king of Bashan was the last remaining Rephaite. His bed, made of iron, was over thirteen feet long and six wide. You can still see it on display in Rabbah of the People of Ammon.
12 Of the land that we possessed at that time, I gave the Reubenites and the Gadites the territory north of Aroer along the Brook Arnon and half the hill country of Gilead with its towns.
13 I gave the half-tribe of Manasseh the rest of Gilead and all of Bashan, Og's kingdom - all the region of Argob, which takes in all of Bashan. This used to be known as the Land of the Rephaites.
14 Jair, a son of Manasseh, got the region of Argob to the borders of the Geshurites and Maacathites. He named the Bashan villages after himself, Havvoth Jair (Jair's Tent-Villages). They're still called that.
