King James VersionDeuteronomy3


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. 2 And 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. 3 So 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. 4 And 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. 5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; be­side un­walled towns a great many. 6 And we ut­ter­ly de­stroyed them, as we did unto Si­hon king of Hes­h­bon, ut­ter­ly de­stroy­ing the men, wom­en, and chil­dren, of ev­ery city. 7 But all the cat­tle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to our­selves. 8 And 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;) 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 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. 12 And 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. 13 And 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. 14 Jair 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. 15 And I gave Gilead unto Machir. 16 And 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; 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 east­ward. 18 And 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. 19 But 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; 20 Un­til 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. 21 And 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. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you. 23 And I be­sought the LORD at that time, say­ing, 24 O 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? 25 I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is be­yond Jor­dan, that good­ly moun­tain, and Lebanon. 26 But 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. 27 Get 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. 28 But 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. 29 So we abode in the val­ley over against Beth­pe­or.
