The Defeat of King Og1“Then we turned and went up the way to Bashan. And a Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at b Edrei. 2But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not fear him, for I have given him and all his people and his land into your hand. And you shall do to him as you did to c Sihon the king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.’ 3So the Lord our God gave into our hand Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people, d and we struck him down until he had no survivor left. 4And we took all his cities at that time—there was not a city that we did not take from them—sixty cities, e the whole region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 5All these were cities fortified with high walls, gates, and bars, besides very many unwalled villages. 6And f we devoted them to destruction, ▼
▼That is, set apart ( devoted) as an offering to the Lord (for destruction); twice in this verseas we did to Sihon the king of Heshbon, devoting to destruction every h city, men, women, and children.
