Deuteronomy 3


Sixty Cities Defeated

And turning we ascended the way into Bashan. And came forth Og king of Bashan to meet us, he and all his people for war, in Edrei. And the  lord said to me, You should not fear him, for into your hands I will deliver him, and all his people, and all his land. And you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon. And [3delivered 4him 1the  lord 2our God] into our hands, even Og king of Bashan, and all his people. And we struck him until there was not left behind any of his seed. And we held all of his cities in that time; there was not a city which we did not take from them; sixty cities, all the places round about Argob, of king Og in Bashan. All these cities were fortified [2walls 1with high], gates, and bars; besides the cities of the Perizzites -- [2many 1very]. We utterly destroyed them as we did Sihon king of Heshbon. And we utterly destroyed every city, next also the women and the children, and all the cattle; and the spoils of the cities we despoiled for ourselves. And we took in that time the land from the hands of the two kings of the Amorites, the ones who were on the other side of the Jordan -- from the rushing stream of Arnon unto mount Hermon. The Phoenicians named Hermon, Sirion, but the Amorite named it Shenir. 10 All the cities of Misor, and all Gilead, and all Bashan unto Salchah and Edrei -- cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11 For only Og king of Bashan was left from the Rephaim. Behold his bed is a bed of iron. Behold this is in the Akra of the sons of Ammon. Nine cubits was the length of it, and four cubits the breadth of it, in the cubit of a man.

The Israelites Inherit the Land

12 And that land we inherited in that time from Aroer, which is by the bank of the stream Arnon, and the half of the mountain of Gilead. And his cities I gave to Reuben and Gad. 13 And the remainder of Gilead, and all Bashan -- the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half tribe of Manasseh; and all the place round about Argob. All that Bashan [2the land 3of Raphaim 1shall be considered]. 14 And Jair son of Manasseh took all the place round about Argob, unto the borders of the Geshurites and Maachathites. And he named them after his name -- Bashan Havoth Jair until this day. 15 And to to Machir I gave Gilead. 16 And to Reuben and to Gad I gave of Gilead unto the rushing stream Arnon, between the rushing stream's border and unto the Jabbok; and the rushing streams are the border to the sons of Ammon. 17 And the Araba and the Jordan are the border from Chinnereth, and unto the sea of Araba, [2sea 1the salty] by Ashdoth of Pisgah from the east. 18 And I gave charge to you at that time, saying, The  lord your God has given to you this land by lot. Arming yourselves, go forth before the face of your brethren of the sons of Israel -- every one able! 19 Except your wives, and your children, and your cattle, for I know there are many cattle to you, let them dwell at your cities in which I gave to you, 20 until whenever [3should rest 1the  lord 2your God] your brethren, as also you, and they should have inherited also themselves the land which the  lord your God gives to you on the other side of the Jordan; then [2shall turn back 1each] to his inheritance, which I have given to you. 21 And to Joshua I gave charge at that time, saying, Your eyes have seen all as much as [3did 1the  lord 2our God] [2two 3kings 1to these]; so [2shall do 1the  lord] to all the kingdoms unto which you passed over there. 22 You shall not have fear of them, for the  lord our God himself shall wage war for you. 23 And I besought the  lord in that time, saying, 24 O Lord, O  lord, you began to show to your attendant your strength, and your power, and the [2hand 1fortified], and the [2arm 1high]. For what God is in the heaven or upon the earth, who shall do as you did yourself, according to your works, and according to your strength? 25 Passing over then I will see [2land 1this good], the one being on the other side of the Jordan, [3mountain 1this 2good], and the Antilebanon. 26 And the  lord overlooked me because of you. And he did not listen to me. And the  lord said to me, Let it be enough for you to not add yet to speak to me on this matter! 27 Ascend upon the top the dressed stone, and lift up your eyes towards the west and the north and the south and the east! And behold with your eyes! for you shall not pass over this Jordan. 28 And you give charge to Joshua, and strengthen him, and comfort him! for this one shall pass over before the face of this people, and he shall allot to them the land which you have seen. 29 And we laid in wait in a grove in the vicinity of the house of Peor.
