Which lay between the rivers Arnon and Jabbok; their particular names may be seen in ( Numbers 32:3 Numbers 32:34-38 ) ,

being given to the Reubenites and Gadites, who inhabited them, as their possession and inheritance, ( Numbers 32:2 Numbers 32:33 ) ( Deuteronomy 3:12 Deuteronomy 3:16 ) :

in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof;
