ble, 34 And we took all his cities at that time and utterly 1 destroyed 4 the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city; we left Ilone m to remain : . 35 Only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves, and the spoil of the cities which we took. 5 From n Aroer, which is by the brink of the river of Arnon, and from the city that is by the river, even unto Gilead, there was not one city too strongfor us: the LORD0 our God delivered all unto us: 37 Only unto the land of the children of Ammon thou camest not, nor unto any place of the river Jabbok, p nor unto the cities in the mountains, nor unto whatsoever the LORD our God forbad Q us. . CHAPTER III. 20 Moses’ prayer to enter into the land: 27 he is permitted to see it. WHEN we turned, and went up the way to Basham : and a Og the king ; joi i. o against us, he and a s people, to battle at Éireio, 2 And the LORD said unto me, c Fear him not; for I will deliver him, and aii his people, and his iand, into thy hand; and thou shal do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon d king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon. . . 3 So the LoRD our God delivered into our hands Qg also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining. 4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them threescore cities, all the region o Argob, e the kingdom of Og in Bashan

Pistribution of lands

10 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah l and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; m behold, his bedstead was a bed stead of iron ; is it not im Rabbath on of the children of Ammon 7 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, 9 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 p the rest of Gilead and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Óg, 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 q the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri r and Maachathi; and called them after his own name, Bashan—havoth-jair, unto this day. 15 And I gave Gilead unto Machir. 16 And unto the Reubenites, and unto the Gadites, I gave from Gilead even unto the river Arnon, half the valley, and the border, even unto the river Jabbok, which is s the border of the children of Ammon : 17 The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast, thereof, from Chinnereth t even unto the sea of the plain; even the salt sea, 1 under Ashdothpisgah eastward. 18 T And I commanded you at that time, saying, The LoroD your God hath given you this land to possess it : ye u shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all that are 2 meet for the war. 19 But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have given you ; 20 Until the Lord have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto i. and until they also possess the and which the LoRD your God hath given them beyond Jordan : and then v shall ye return .# man unto his possession which have given you. 21 of And w I commanded Joshua at that time, †. Thine eyes have seem all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the LoRD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest. o
