Numbers 21:10 Numbers 21:35

10 And the children of Israel journeyed and encamped at Oboth.

11 And they journeyed from Oboth and encamped at Iye-abarim in the wilderness which faces Moab toward the sunrise.

12 From there they journeyed and encamped in the valley of Zered.

13 From there they journeyed and encamped on the other side of the Arnon, which is in the wilderness that comes out of the border of the Amorites; for the Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites.

14 Therefore it is said in the Book of the Wars of Jehovah, Waheb in Suphah, And the valleys of the Arnon,

15 And the slope of the valleys That inclines toward the seat of Ar And leans toward the border of Moab.

16 And from there they journeyed to Beer; that is the well where Jehovah said to Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water.

17 Then Israel sang this song: Spring up, O well! Sing to it!

18 The well, which the leaders sank, Which the nobles of the people dug, With the scepter, with their staffs. And from the wilderness they journeyed to Mattanah;

19 And from Mattanah to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to Bamoth;

20 And from Bamoth to the valley that is in the land of Moab, to the top of Pisgah, which looks down upon the desert.

21 And Israel sent messengers to Sihon the king of the Amorites, saying,

22 Let me pass through your land. We will not turn aside into field or into vineyard; we will not drink water from any well. We will go by the King’s Highway, until we have passed through your territory.

23 But Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his territory. And Sihon gathered all his people together and went out against Israel into the wilderness, and he came to Jahaz and fought against Israel.

24 And Israel struck him with the edge of the sword and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as the children of Ammon; for the border of the children of Ammon was strong.

25 And Israel took all these cities, and Israel settled in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon and in all her villages.

26 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab and taken all his land out of his hand, as far as the Arnon.

27 Therefore those who speak in proverbs say, Come to Heshbon; let it be built, And let the city of Sihon be established.

28 For fire has gone forth from Heshbon, A flame from the city of Sihon; It has consumed Ar of Moab, And swallowed up the high places of the Arnon.

29 Woe to you, O Moab! You have perished, O people of Chemosh; He has given his sons as fugitives, And his daughters have gone into captivity, To an Amorite king, Sihon.

30 We have shot at them; Heshbon is ruined as far as Dibon, And we have laid waste as far as Nophah, Fire spreads as far as Medeba.

31 Thus Israel settled in the land of the Amorites.

32 And Moses sent some to spy out Jazer. And they captured its villages and dispossessed the Amorites who were there.

33 And they turned and went up on the way that leads to Bashan; and Og the king of Bashan went out against them, he and all his people, for battle at Edrei.

34 And Jehovah said to Moses, 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 was dwelling at Heshbon.

35 So they struck him and his sons and all his people until there was no remnant left to him, and they possessed his land.
