Deuteronomy 3

CLV(i) 1 Then we turned around and ascended the Bashan road. And Og king of Bashan came forth to meet us, he and all his people, for battle at Edrei. 2 But Yahweh said to me:Do not fear him, for into your hand I will give him, all his people and his country, and you will do to him just as you did to Sihon king of the Amorite who was dwelling in Heshbon. 3 So Yahweh our Elohim also gave into our hand Og king of Bashan and all his people, and we smote him until no survivor at all was left remaining to him. 4 Then we seized all his cities at that time. There was not a town which we did not take from them, sixty cities, the whole district of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 5 All these cities were defended by lofty walls, doors and bars, aside from the unwalled villages which were exceedingly numerous. 6 And we doomed them just as we did to Sihon king of Heshbon, dooming every city--adult males, women and little ones. 7 All the domestic beasts and the loot of the cities we plundered for ourselves. 8 At that time we took the area from the hand of the two kings of the Amorite who were in Transjordan, from the watercourse of Arnon as far as Mount Hermo. 9 (the Sidonians call Hermon Sirion, and the Amorite call it Shenir), 10 all the cities of the tableland and all Gilead and all Bashan as far as Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11 (For only Og king of Bashan had remained of the rest of the Rephaim. Behold, his divan is a burial divan of wrought iron. Is it not in Rabbah of the sons of Ammon? Nine cubits is its length and four cubits its width, in the cubit measure of a man.. 12 From this land which we took over at that time, the part from Aroer which is on the ridge of the watercourse of Arnon with half the hill-country of Gilead and its cities I gave to the Reubenite and to the Gadite. 13 The rest of Gilead and all of Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half tribe of Manasseh, including the whole district of Argob. All of that Bashan is called the country of the Rephaim. 14 Jair son of Manasseh, he took the whole district of Argob as far as the boundary of the Geshurite and the Maachathite and called them (that is, Bashan) by his own name, Havvoth-jair, until this day. 15 And to Machir I gave Gilead. 16 To the Reubenite and to the Gadite I gave their half of Gilead:as far as the watercourse of Arnon (the middle of the watercourse as boundary), as far as the Jabbok watercourse, the boundary of the sons of Ammon. 17 In the west the Aravah with the Jordan was the boundary from Chinnereth as far as the sea of the Aravah, the Salt Sea, below the slopes of the Pisgah ridge toward sunrise. 18 I instructed you at that time, saying:Yahweh your Elohim, He has given to you this land to tenant it. You shall cross over outfitted for war before your brothers, the sons of Israel, all you sons of valor. 19 But your wives and your little ones and your cattle (I know that you have much cattle), they may dwell in your cities which I gave to yo. 20 until Yahweh shall give rest to your brothers, as He gave to you, and they too will tenant the land that Yahweh your Elohim is giving to them across the Jordan. Then you may return, each to his tenancy, which I gave to you. 21 I instructed Joshua at that time, saying:Your eyes were the ones seeing all that Yahweh your Elohim has done to these two kings. Thus shall Yahweh do to all the kingdoms where you are passing. 22 You shall not fear them, for Yahweh your Elohim, He is the One fighting for you. 23 I supplicated to Yahweh at that time, saying. 24 My Lord Yahweh, You Yourself have started to show Your servant Your greatness and Your steadfast hand, and Your outstretched arm. For what el is in the heavens or on the earth who could do according to Your deeds and according to Your mastery? 25 Let me cross over, I pray so I may see the good land that is across the Jordan, this good hill-country and the Lebanon. 26 Yet Yahweh was enraged with me on account of you and did not hearken to me. Yahweh said to me:Let it be enough for you! Do not continue to speak to Me further on this matter. 27 Ascend to the summit of the Pisgah ridge, and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward and see with your eyes, for you shall not cross over this Jordan. 28 Yet instruct Joshua and encourage him and make him resolute, for he shall cross over before this people, and he shall allot to them the land that you shall see. 29 So we dwelt in the ravine opposite Beth-peor.
