3"Next we turned and headed for the land of Bashan, where King Og and his entire army attacked us at Edrei.H6437H5927H1870H1316H5747H4428H1316H3318H7125H5971H4421H154 2But the LORD told me, 'Do not be afraid of him, for I have given you victory over Og and his entire army, and I will give you all his land. Treat him just as you treated King Sihon of the Amorites, who ruled in Heshbon.'H3068H559H3372H5414H5971H776H3027H6213H6213H5511H4428H567H3427H2809 3"So the LORD our God handed King Og and all his people over to us, and we killed them all. Not a single person survived.H3068H430H5414H3027H5747H4428H1316H5971H5221H7604H8300 4We conquered all sixty of his towns—the entire Argob region in his kingdom of Bashan. Not a single town escaped our conquest.H3920H5892H6256H7151H3947H8346H5892H2256H709H4467H5747H1316 5These towns were all fortified with high walls and barred gates. We also took many unwalled villages at the same time.H5892H1219H1364H2346H1817H1280H6521H5892H3966H7235 6We completely destroyed the kingdom of Bashan, just as we had destroyed King Sihon of Heshbon. We destroyed all the people in every town we conquered—men, women, and children alike.H2763H6213H5511H4428H2809H2763H4962H802H2945H5892 7But we kept all the livestock for ourselves and took plunder from all the towns.H929H7998H5892H962 8"So we took the land of the two Amorite kings east of the Jordan River—all the way from the Arnon Gorge to Mount Hermon.H3947H6256H3947H3027H8147H4428H567H776H5676H3383H5158H769H2022H2768 9(Mount Hermon is called Sirion by the Sidonians, and the Amorites call it Senir.)H2768H6722H7121H8303H567H7121H8149 10We had now conquered all the cities on the plateau and all Gilead and Bashan, as far as the towns of Salecah and Edrei, which were part of Og's kingdom in Bashan.H5892H4334H1568H1316H5548H154H5892H4467H5747H1316 11(King Og of Bashan was the last survivor of the giant Rephaites. His bed was made of iron and was more than thirteen feet long and six feet wide. It can still be seen in the Ammonite city of Rabbah.)H5747H4428H1316H7604H3499H7497H6210H6210H1270H3808H7237H1121H5983H8672H520H753H702H520H7341H520H376 12"When we took possession of this land, I gave to the tribes of Reuben and Gad the territory beyond Aroer along the Arnon Gorge, plus half of the hill country of Gilead with its towns.H776H3423H6256H6177H5158H769H2677H2022H1568H5892H5414H7206H1425 13Then I gave the rest of Gilead and all of Bashan—Og's former kingdom—to the half-tribe of Manasseh. (This entire Argob region of Bashan used to be known as the land of the Rephaites.H3499H1568H1316H4467H5747H5414H2677H7626H4519H2256H709H1316H1931H7121H776H7497 14Jair, a leader from the tribe of Manasseh, conquered the whole Argob region in Bashan, all the way to the border of the Geshurites and Maacathites. Jair renamed this region after himself, calling it the Towns of Jair, as it is still known today.)H2971H1121H4519H3947H2256H709H1366H1651H4602H7121H8034H1316H2334H3117 15I gave Gilead to the clan of Makir.H5414H1568H4353 16But I also gave part of Gilead to the tribes of Reuben and Gad. The area I gave them extended from the middle of the Arnon Gorge in the south to the Jabbok River on the Ammonite frontier.H7206H1425H5414H1568H5158H769H8432H5158H1366H5158H2999H1366H1121H5983 17They also received the Jordan Valley, all the way from the Sea of Galilee down to the Dead Sea, with the Jordan River serving as the western boundary. To the east were the slopes of Pisgah.H6160H3383H1366H3672H3220H6160H4417H3220H798H794H4217 18"At that time I gave this command to the tribes that would live east of the Jordan: 'Although the LORD your God has given you this land as your property, all your fighting men must cross the Jordan ahead of your Israelite relatives, armed and ready to assist them.H6680H6256H559H3068H430H5414H776H3423H5674H2502H6440H251H1121H3478H1121H2428 19Your wives, children, and numerous livestock, however, may stay behind in the towns I have given you.H802H2945H4735H3045H7227H4735H3427H5892H5414 20When the LORD has given security to the rest of the Israelites, as he has to you, and when they occupy the land the LORD your God is giving them across the Jordan River, then you may all return here to the land I have given you.'H3068H5117H251H3423H776H3068H430H5414H5676H3383H7725H376H3425H5414 21"At that time I gave Joshua this charge: 'You have seen for yourself everything the LORD your God has done to these two kings. He will do the same to all the kingdoms on the west side of the Jordan.H6680H3091H6256H559H5869H7200H3068H430H6213H8147H4428H3068H6213H4467H5674 22Do not be afraid of the nations there, for the LORD your God will fight for you.'H3372H3068H430H3898 23"At that time I pleaded with the LORD and said,H2603H3068H6256H559 24'O Sovereign LORD, you have only begun to show your greatness and the strength of your hand to me, your servant. Is there any god in heaven or on earth who can perform such great and mighty deeds as you do?H136H3069H2490H7200H5650H1433H2389H3027H410H8064H776H6213H4639H1369 25Please let me cross the Jordan to see the wonderful land on the other side, the beautiful hill country and the Lebanon mountains.'H5674H7200H2896H776H5676H3383H2896H2022H3844 26"But the LORD was angry with me because of you, and he would not listen to me. 'That's enough!' he declared. 'Speak of it no more.H3068H5674H8085H3068H559H7227H1696H3254H1697 27But go up to Pisgah Peak, and look over the land in every direction. Take a good look, but you may not cross the Jordan River.H5927H7218H6449H5375H5869H3220H6828H8486H4217H7200H5869H5674H3383 28Instead, commission Joshua and encourage and strengthen him, for he will lead the people across the Jordan. He will give them all the land you now see before you as their possession.'H6680H3091H2388H553H5674H6440H5971H5157H776H7200 29So we stayed in the valley near Beth-peor.H3427H1516H4136H1047
