The descendants of Reuben built the towns of Heshbon, Elealeh, Kiriathaim,
Nebo, Baal-meon, and Sibmah. They changed the names of some of the towns they conquered and rebuilt.
Then the descendants of Makir of the tribe of Manasseh went to Gilead and conquered it, and they drove out the Amorites living there.
So Moses gave Gilead to the Makirites, descendants of Manasseh, and they settled there.
The people of Jair, another clan of the tribe of Manasseh, captured many of the towns in Gilead and changed the name of that region to the Towns of Jair.
Meanwhile, a man named Nobah captured the town of Kenath and its surrounding villages, and he renamed that area Nobah after himself.
