Deuteronomy 2:24 Deuteronomy 3:4

24 Rise up; set out and cross over the valley of the Arnon. See, I have given into your hand Sihon the Amorite, the king of Heshbon, and his land. Begin to possess it, and engage him in battle.

25 Today I will begin to put the dread and fear of you upon the peoples under all heaven, who will hear the report of you and will tremble and quake because of you.

26 Then I sent messengers from the wilderness of Kedemoth to Sihon the king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying,

27 Let me pass through your land. Only on the road I will go; I will not turn to the right or to the left.

28 You will sell me food for money, that I may eat; and you will give me water for money, that I may drink; only let me pass through on foot –

29 As the children of Esau, who dwell in Seir, and the Moabites, who dwell in Ar, did for me – until I cross over the Jordan into the land which Jehovah our God is giving us.

30 But Sihon the king of Heshbon would not let us pass through his land, for Jehovah your God hardened his spirit and made his heart obstinate for the purpose of delivering him into your hand, as he is today.

31 And Jehovah said to me, See, I have begun to deliver Sihon and his land up before you. Begin to possess it that you may occupy his land.

32 Then Sihon came out to meet us, he and all his people, for battle at Jahaz.

33 And Jehovah our God delivered him up before us, and we slew him and his sons and all his people.

34 And we captured all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed every city – men, women, and children; we left no survivors.

35 We took only the cattle as our plunder, as well as the spoil of the cities which we captured.

36 From Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and from the city which is in the valley, even to Gilead, there was not a town too high for us; Jehovah our God delivered them all up before us.

37 But you did not go near the land of the children of Ammon, all along the river Jabbok, nor the cities of the hill country, nor any place that Jehovah our God commanded us not to.


1 Then we turned and went up on the way that leads to Bashan; and Og the king of Bashan came out to meet us, he and all his people, for battle at Edrei.

2 But Jehovah 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 was dwelling in Heshbon.

3 And Jehovah our God also gave Og the king of Bashan, as well as all his people, into our hand; and we slew them until there was no survivor left.

4 And we captured all his cities at that time; there was not a town that we did not take from them: sixty cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
