Deuteronomy 3

VIN(i) 1 And we turned and went up by the way of Bashan, and Og the king of Bashan came out to meet us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei. 2 "the LORD said to me: 'Do not be afraid of him. I will hand him, all his army, and his land, over to you. Do to him what you did to King Sihon of the Amorites, who ruled in Heshbon.' 3 "So the LORD our God also delivered into our control Og king of Bashan, along with his whole army. We attacked him until there were no survivors. 4 And we took all his cities at that time. There was not a city which we did not take from them, sixty cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 5 All these cities were fortified with high walls, gates, and bars; besides a good many unwalled towns. 6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we had done to Sehon the king of Hesebon, destroying every city, men and women and children: 7 But all the livestock, and the plunder of the cities, we took for plunder for ourselves. 8 "So at that time we took control from the two Amorite kings the territory east of the Jordan from Wadi Arnon to Mount Hermon. 9 (Sidonians call Hermon, Sirion; and the Amorites call it Senir,) 10 All the towns of the table-land and all Gilead and Bashan as far as Salecah and Edrei, towns of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11 »Of the Rephaim only King Og of Bashan was left. His bed was made of iron and was more than thirteen feet long and six feet wide. It is still in the Ammonite city of Rabbah. 12 "Of the land that we captured at that time, I've given its towns to the Reubenites and the Gaddites from Aroer near the Wadi Arnon to half of the hill country of Gilead. 13 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, to all Bashan that is called the land of the giants. 14 Jair the son of Manasseh took the whole region of Argob as far as the border of the Geshurites and Maachathites, and called Bashan after his own name, Havoth-Jair, to this day.) 15 And I gave Gilead to Machir. 16 And to the Reubenites and to the Gadites I gave from Gilead even to the valley of Arnon, the middle of the valley and its border; even to the Jabbok River, which is the border of the sons of Ammon; 17 the Arabah also, and the Jordan and its border, from Chinnereth to the sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, under the slopes of Pisgah eastward. 18 "Then I commanded you at that time, 'The Lord your God gave you this land as a possession. Those equipped for battle every man a warrior will cross before your fellow Israelites. 19 Only your wives and your little children and your livestock (I know that you have much livestock) must stay in your towns that I have given you, 20 until the LORD give rest to your brethren, as well as to you, and they also take possession of the land that the LORD your God giveth them beyond the Jordan; then shall ye return, each man to his possession, which I have given you. 21 "I also gave Joshua this command: 'You have seen with your own eyes everything the LORD your God has done to these two kings. the LORD will do the same to all of the kingdoms on the other side of the Jordan River where you are going. 22 Do not fear them, for the LORD your God himself will fight for you." 23 »Then I pleaded with the LORD: 24 “Sovereign LORD, you have begun to show your servant your greatness, and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or in earth that can do works like yours, and mighty acts like yours? 25 Please let me go over and see the good land that is beyond the Jordan, that good hill country, and Lebanon." 26 "the LORD was angry with me because of you, so he would not listen to me. He said: 'Enough of that! Do not talk to me anymore about this. 27 Go up to the top of Pisgah and lift your eyes toward the west, north, south, and east. Look with your own eyes, since you won't be able to cross this Jordan River. 28 But commission Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him; for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which you shall see." 29 So we stayed in the valley near Beth Peor.
