The Fifth Book of Moses, called Deuteronomy

Chapter 3

1

Then we turned,4 and went up4 the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out4 against2 us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.

2

And the LORD said4 unto me, Fear4 him not: for I will deliver1 him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do1 unto him as thou didst1 unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt6 at Heshbon.

3

So the LORD our God delivered4 into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote55 him until none was left52 to him remaining.

4

And we took4 all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took1 not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

5

All these cities [were] fenced7 with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.53

6

And we utterly destroyed55 them, as we did1 unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying53 the men, women, and children, of every city.

7

But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey1 to ourselves.

8

And we took4 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 call4 Sirion; and the Amorites call4 it Shenir;)

10

All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

11

For only Og king of Bashan remained8 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.

12

And this land, [which] we possessed1 at that time, from Aroer, which [is] by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave1 I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.

13

And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, [being] the kingdom of Og, gave1 I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called11 the land of giants.

14

Jair the son of Manasseh took1 all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called4 them after his own name, Bashanhavothjair, 2334 2971 unto this day.

15

And I gave1 Gilead unto Machir.

16

And unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites I gave1 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;

17

The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast [thereof], from Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, [even] the salt sea, under Ashdothpisgah 6449 798 eastward.

18

And I commanded17 you at that time, saying,2 The LORD your God hath given1 you this land to possess2 it: ye shall pass over4 armed7 before your brethren the children of Israel, all [that are] meet for the war.

19

But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, ([for] I know1 that ye have much cattle,) shall abide4 in your cities which I have given1 you;

20

Until the LORD have given rest55 unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and [until] they also possess1 the land which the LORD your God hath given6 them beyond Jordan: and [then] shall ye return1 every man unto his possession, which I have given1 you.

21

And I commanded14 Joshua at that time, saying,2 Thine eyes have seen6 all that the LORD your God hath done1 unto these two kings: so shall the LORD do4 unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.6

22

Ye shall not fear4 them: for the LORD your God he shall fight12 for you.

23

And I besought101 the LORD at that time, saying,2

24

O Lord GOD, thou hast begun52 to shew53 thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God [is there] in heaven or in earth, that can do4 according to thy works, and according to thy might?

25

I pray thee, let me go over,4 and see4 the good land that [is] beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.

26

But the LORD was wroth101 with me for your sakes, and would not hear1 me: and the LORD said4 unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak15 no more55 unto me of this matter.

27

Get thee up3 into the top of Pisgah, and lift up3 thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold3 [it] with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over4 this Jordan.

28

But charge16 Joshua, and encourage16 him, and strengthen16 him: for he shall go over4 before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit55 the land which thou shalt see.4

29

So we abode4 in the valley over against Bethpeor.
