1Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.2And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.3So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.4And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.5All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.6And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.7But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves.8And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites the land that was on this side Jordan, from the river of Arnon unto mount Hermon;9( Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir;)10All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.11For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.12And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.13And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.14Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own name, Bashanhavothjair, unto this day.15And I gave Gilead unto Machir.16And unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites I gave from Gilead even unto the river Arnon half the valley, and the border even unto the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;17The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast thereof , from Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, under Ashdothpisgah eastward.18And I commanded you at that time, saying, The LORD your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all that are meet for the war.19But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, ( for I know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have given you;20Until the LORD have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and until they also possess the land which the LORD your God hath given them beyond Jordan: and then shall ye return every man unto his possession, which I have given you.21And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.22Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you.23And I besought the LORD at that time, saying,24O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?25I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.26But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.27Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.28But charge 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 thou shalt see.29So we abode in the valley over against Bethpeor.

The Defeat of King Og
1“Then we turned and went up the way to Bashan. And Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei. (Nu 21:33; Nu 21:35; De 1:4; De 29:7)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 Sihon the king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.’ (Nu 21:23; Nu 21:34)3So the Lord our God gave into our hand Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people, and we struck him down until he had no survivor left. (Nu 21:35)4And we took all his cities at that time—there was not a city that we did not take from them—sixty cities, the whole region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. (1Ki 4:13)5All these were cities fortified with high walls, gates, and bars, besides very many unwalled villages.6And we devoted them to destruction, as we did to Sihon the king of Heshbon, devoting to destruction every city, men, women, and children. (De 2:34; De 7:2; Ps 135:10)7But all the livestock and the spoil of the cities we took as our plunder.8So we took the land at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, from the Valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon9(the Sidonians call Hermon Sirion, while the Amorites call it Senir), (De 4:48; Jos 11:3; Jos 11:17; Jos 12:5; 1Ch 5:23; Ps 29:6; So 4:8; Eze 27:5)10all the cities of the tableland and all Gilead and all Bashan, as far as Salecah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. (De 4:43; Jos 12:5; Jos 13:9; Jos 13:11; Jos 13:16; Jos 13:21; 1Ch 5:11; Jer 48:8; Jer 48:21)11(For only Og the king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaim. Behold, his bed was a bed of iron. Is it not in Rabbah of the Ammonites? Nine cubits was its length, and four cubits its breadth, according to the common cubit.) (Ge 14:5; De 2:11; De 2:20; 2Sa 11:1; 2Sa 12:26; Jer 49:2; Eze 21:20; Eze 25:5; Am 1:14; Re 21:17)12“When we took possession of this land at that time, I gave to the Reubenites and the Gadites the territory beginning at Aroer, which is on the edge of the Valley of the Arnon, and half the hill country of Gilead with its cities. (Nu 32:32; De 2:36; Jos 13:8)13The rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, that is, all the region of Argob, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh. (All that portion of Bashan is called the land of Rephaim. (Nu 32:39; De 3:11; Jos 13:29; 1Ki 4:13)14Jair the Manassite took all the region of Argob, that is, Bashan, as far as the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, and called the villages after his own name, Havvoth-jair, as it is to this day.) (Nu 32:41; Jos 12:5; Jos 13:11; Jos 13:13; 2Sa 3:3; 2Sa 10:6; 2Sa 13:37; 1Ch 2:22)15To Machir I gave Gilead, (Nu 32:39)16and to the Reubenites and the Gadites I gave the territory from Gilead as far as the Valley of the Arnon, with the middle of the valley as a border, as far over as the river Jabbok, the border of the Ammonites; (Nu 21:24; Jos 12:2; 2Sa 24:5)17the Arabah also, with the Jordan as the border, from Chinnereth as far as the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, under the slopes of Pisgah on the east. (Ge 14:3; Nu 21:15; Nu 34:11; De 4:49; Jos 3:16; Jos 12:3; 2Ki 14:25)18“And I commanded you at that time, saying, ‘The Lord your God has given you this land to possess. All your men of valor shall cross over armed before your brothers, the people of Israel. (Nu 32:20; Jos 1:14; Jos 4:12)19Only your wives, your little ones, and your livestock (I know that you have much livestock) shall remain in the cities that I have given you, (Nu 32:1; Nu 32:4)20until the Lord gives rest to your brothers, as to you, and they also occupy the land that the Lord your God gives them beyond the Jordan. Then each of you may return to his possession which I have given you.’ (Jos 22:4)21And I commanded Joshua at that time, ‘Your eyes have seen all that the Lord your God has done to these two kings. So will the Lord do to all the kingdoms into which you are crossing. (Nu 27:18)22You shall not fear them, for it is the Lord your God who fights for you.’ (Ex 14:14)
Moses Forbidden to Enter the Land
23“And I pleaded with the Lord at that time, saying,24‘O Lord God, you have only begun to show your servant your greatness and your mighty hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do such works and mighty acts as yours? (Ex 15:11; De 5:24; De 11:2; De 32:3; 1Ch 29:11)25Please let me go over and see the good land beyond the Jordan, that good hill country and Lebanon.’ (Ex 3:8; De 4:22; Jos 1:4)26But the Lord was angry with me because of you and would not listen to me. And the Lord said to me, ‘Enough from you; do not speak to me of this matter again. (De 1:37; 2Co 12:9)27Go up to the top of Pisgah and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward, and look at it with your eyes, for you shall not go over this Jordan. (Nu 27:12)28But charge Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he shall go over at the head of this people, and he shall put them in possession of the land that you shall see.’ (Nu 27:23; De 1:38; De 31:3; De 31:7)29So we remained in the valley opposite Beth-peor. (De 4:46; De 34:6)
