1 H6437 Then we turned, H5265 and took our journey H4057 into the wilderness H1870 by the way H5488 to the Red H3220 Sea, H3068 as Yahweh H1696 spoke H5437 to me; and we encircled H2022 Mount H8165 Seir H7227 many H3117 days.
4 H6680 Command H5971 the people, H559 saying, H5674 ‘You are to pass H1366 through the border H251 of your brothers H1121 the children H6215 of Esau, H3427 who dwell H8165 in Seir; H3372 and they will be afraid H3966 of you: take good H8104 heed to yourselves therefore;
5 H1624 don't contend H5414 with them; for I will not give H776 you of their land, H4096 no, not so much as for the sole H7272 of the foot H5414 to tread on; because I have given H2022 Mount H8165 Seir H6215 to Esau H3425 for a possession.
6 H7666 You shall purchase H400 food H3701 of them for money, H398 that you may eat; H3739 and you shall also buy H4325 water H3701 of them for money, H8354 that you may drink.'"
7 H3068 For Yahweh H430 your God H1288 has blessed H4639 you in all the work H3027 of your hand; H3045 he has known H3212 your walking H1419 through this great H4057 wilderness: H705 these forty H8141 years H3068 Yahweh H430 your God H2637 has been with you; you have lacked H1697 nothing.
8 H5674 So we passed H251 by from our brothers H1121 the children H6215 of Esau, H3427 who dwell H8165 in Seir, H1870 from the way H6160 of the Arabah H359 from Elath H6100 and from Ezion Geber. H6437 We turned H5674 and passed H1870 by the way H4057 of the wilderness H4124 of Moab.
9 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H6696 to me, "Don't bother H4124 Moab, H1624 neither contend H4421 with them in battle; H5414 for I will not give H776 you of his land H3425 for a possession; H5414 because I have given H6144 Ar H1121 to the children H3876 of Lot H3425 for a possession."
10 H368 (The Emim H3427 lived H6440 therein before, H5971 a people H1419 great, H7227 and many, H7311 and tall, H6062 as the Anakim:
11 H1992 these H2803 also are accounted H7497 Rephaim, H6062 as the Anakim; H4125 but the Moabites H7121 call H368 them Emim.
12 H2752 The Horites H3427 also lived H8165 in Seir H6440 before, H1121 but the children H6215 of Esau H3423 succeeded H8045 them; and they destroyed H6440 them from before H3427 them, and lived H3478 in their place; as Israel H6213 did H776 to the land H3425 of his possession, H3068 which Yahweh H5414 gave to them.)
13 H6965 "Now rise up, H5674 and cross over H5158 the brook H2218 Zered." H5674 We went over H5158 the brook H2218 Zered.
14 H3117 The days H1980 in which we came H6947 from Kadesh Barnea, H1980 until we had come H5158 over the brook H2218 Zered, H7970 were thirty - H8083 eight H8141 years; H1755 until all the generation H582 of the men H4421 of war H8552 were consumed H7130 from the midst H4264 of the camp, H3068 as Yahweh H7650 swore to them.
15 H3027 Moreover the hand H3068 of Yahweh H2000 was against them, to destroy H7130 them from the midst H4264 of the camp, H8552 until they were consumed.
16 H582 So it happened, when all the men H4421 of war H8552 were consumed H4191 and dead H7130 from among H5971 the people,
19 H7126 and when you come near H4136 over against H1121 the children H5983 of Ammon, H6696 don't bother H1624 them, nor contend H5414 with them; for I will not give H776 you of the land H1121 of the children H5983 of Ammon H3425 for a possession; H5414 because I have given H1121 it to the children H3876 of Lot H3425 for a possession."
20 H2803 (That also is accounted H776 a land H7497 of Rephaim: H7497 Rephaim H3427 lived H6440 therein before; H5984 but the Ammonites H7121 call H2157 them Zamzummim,
21 H5971 a people H1419 great, H7227 and many, H7311 and tall, H6062 as the Anakim; H3068 but Yahweh H8045 destroyed H6440 them before H3423 them; and they succeeded H3427 them, and lived in their place;
22 H6213 as he did H1121 for the children H6215 of Esau, H3427 who dwell H8165 in Seir, H8045 when he destroyed H2752 the Horites H6440 from before H3423 them; and they succeeded H3427 them, and lived H3117 in their place even to this day:
23 H5761 and the Avvim, H3427 who lived H2699 in villages H5804 as far as Gaza, H3732 the Caphtorim, H3318 who came forth H3731 out of Caphtor, H8045 destroyed H3427 them, and lived in their place.)
24 H6965 "Rise up, H5265 take your journey, H5674 and pass over H5158 the valley H769 of the Arnon: H7200 behold, H5414 I have given H3027 into your hand H5511 Sihon H567 the Amorite, H4428 king H2809 of Heshbon, H776 and his land; H2490 begin H3423 to possess H1624 it, and contend H4421 with him in battle.
25 H3117 This day H2490 will I begin H5414 to put H6343 the dread H3374 of you and the fear H6440 of you on the peoples H8064 who are under the whole sky, H8085 who shall hear H8088 the report H7264 of you, and shall tremble, H2342 and be in anguish H6440 because of you."
26 H7971 I sent H4397 messengers H4057 out of the wilderness H6932 of Kedemoth H5511 to Sihon H4428 king H2809 of Heshbon H1697 with words H7965 of peace, H559 saying,
27 H5674 "Let me pass H776 through your land: H3212 I will go H1870 along by the highway, H5493 I will turn H3225 neither to the right hand H8040 nor to the left.
28 H7666 You shall sell H400 me food H3701 for money, H398 that I may eat; H5414 and give H4325 me water H3701 for money, H8354 that I may drink: H5674 only let me pass through H7272 on my feet,
29 H1121 as the children H6215 of Esau H3427 who dwell H8165 in Seir, H4125 and the Moabites H3427 who dwell H6144 in Ar, H6213 did H5674 to me; until I shall pass over H3383 the Jordan H776 into the land H3068 which Yahweh H430 our God H5414 gives us."
30 H5511 But Sihon H4428 king H2809 of Heshbon H14 would H5674 not let us pass H3068 by him; for Yahweh H430 your God H7185 hardened H7307 his spirit, H3824 and made his heart H553 obstinate, H5414 that he might deliver H3027 him into your hand, H3117 as at this day.
31 H3068 Yahweh H559 said H7200 to me, "Behold, H2490 I have begun H5414 to deliver H5511 up Sihon H776 and his land H6440 before H2490 you: begin H3423 to possess, H3423 that you may inherit H776 his land."
32 H5511 Then Sihon H3318 came out H7125 against H5971 us, he and all his people, H4421 to battle H3096 at Jahaz.
33 H3068 Yahweh H430 our God H5414 delivered H6440 him up before H5221 us; and we struck H1121 him, and his sons, H5971 and all his people.
34 H3920 We took H5892 all his cities H6256 at that time, H2763 and utterly destroyed H4962 every inhabited H5892 city, H802 with the women H2945 and the little ones; H7604 we left H8300 none remaining:
35 H929 only the livestock H962 we took for a prey H7998 to ourselves, with the spoil H5892 of the cities H3920 which we had taken.
36 H6177 From Aroer, H8193 which is on the edge H5158 of the valley H769 of the Arnon, H5892 and the city H5158 that is in the valley, H1568 even to Gilead, H7151 there was not a city H7682 too high H3068 for us; Yahweh H430 our God H5414 delivered H6440 up all before us:
