•^ We have sinned against the Lord, we will
go up and fight, according to all that the
Lord our God commanded us. And when
ye had girded on every man his weapons of
war, ye were ready to go up into the hill.

42 And the Lord said unto me. Say unto
them, *= Go not up, neither fight ; for I am
not among you ; lest ye be smitten before
your enemies.

43 So I spake unto you ; and ye would
not hear, but rebelled against the command-
ment of the Lord, and f'went presumptu-
ously up into the hill.

44 And the Amorites, which dwelt in
that mountain, came out against you, and
chased you, ^as bees do, and destroyed you
in Seir, even unto Hormah.

45 And ye returned and wept before the
Lord ; but the Lord would not hearken
to your voice, nor give ear unto you.

46 ''So ye abode in Kadesh many days,
according unto the days that ye abode there.


1 The story is continued, that they were not to meddle
with the Edoniites, 9 nor with the Moabites, 17 nor
with the Ammonites. 24 But Sihon the Amorite was
subdued by thevi.

THEN we turned, and took our joUrney
into the wilderness by the way of the
Red sea, "as the Lord spake unto me : and
we compassed mount Seir many days.

2 And the Lord spake unto me, saying,

3 Ye have compassed this mountain ■'long
enough : turn you northward.

4 And command thou the people, saying,

The Edomites, S^c, not to be molested.

"Ye are to pass through the coast of your
brethren the children of Esau, which dwell
in Seir ; and they shall be afraid of you :
take ye good heed unto yourselves therefore :

5 Meddle not with them ; for I will not
give you of their land, fno, not so much
as a foot-breadth; •* because I have given
mount Seir unto Esau ybr a possession.

6 Ye shall buy meat of them for money,
that ye may eat ; and ye shall also buy water
of them for money, that ye may drink.

7 For the Lord thy God hath blessed
thee in all the works of thy hand : he know-
eth thy walking through this great wilder-
ness : « these forty years the Lord thy God
hath been Avith thee : thou hast lacked no-

8 ''And when we passed by from our
brethren the children of Esau, which dwelt
in Seir, through the way of the plain from
sElath, and from Ezion-gaber, we turned
and passed by the way of the wilderness of

9 And the Lord said unto me, ||Distress
not the Moabites, neither contend with them
in battle : for I will not give thee of their
land for a possession ; because I have given
"•Ar unto 'the children of Lot for a posses-

10 (•'The Emims dwelt therein in times
past, a people great, and many, and tall as
'the Anakims;

11 Which also were accounted giants, as
the Anakims ; but the Moabites call them

12 ■" The Horims also dwelt in Seir before-
time, but the children of Esau t succeeded
them, when they had destroyed them from
before them, and dwelt in their || stead ; as
Israel did unto the land of his possession,
which the Lord gave unto them.)

13 Now rise up, said I, and get you over
° the II brook Zered : and we went over the
brook Zered.

14 And the space in which we came "from
Kadesh-barnea, until we were come over the
brook Zered, was thirty and eight years;
p until all the generation of the men of war
were wasted out from among the host, ^as
the Lord sware unto them.

15 For indeed the ""hand of the Lord
was against them, to destroy them from
among the host, until they were consumed.

16 IT So it came to pass, when all the men
of war were consumed and dead from among
the people,

17 That the Lord spake unto me, saying,

18 Thou art to pass over through Ar, the
coast of Moab, this day :

19 And when thou comest nigh over


The conquest of Sihofi and his land; DEUTERONOMY.

and of Og and his land.

against the children of Ammon, distress them
not, nor meddle with them : for I will not
give thee of the land of the children of Am-
nion any possession ; because I have given
it unto nhe children of Lot /or a possession.

20 (That also was accounted a land of
giants : giants dwelt therein in old time ; and
the Ammonites call them 'Zamzummims ;

21 "A people great, and many, and tall
as the Anakims ; but the Lord destroyed
them before them ; and they succeeded them,
and dwelt in their stead :

22 As he did to the children of Esau,
^which dwelt in Seir, when he destroyed
ythe Horims from before them ; and they
Succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead
even unto this day :

23 And '^the Avims which dwelt in Ha-
zerim, even unto ^Azzah, '•the Caphtorims,
which came forth out of Caphtor, destroyed
them, and dwelt in their stead.)

24 IF Rise ye up, take your journey, and
^pass over the river Arnon : behold, I have
given into thy hand Sihon the Amorite,
king of Heshbon, and his land : t begin to
possess it, and contend with him in battle.

25 ^ This day will I begin to put the dread
of thee and the fear of thee upon the na-
tions that are under the whole heaven, who
shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble,
and be in anguish because of thee.

26 IT And I sent messengers out of the wil-
derness of Kedemoth unto Sihon king of
Heshbon "with words of peace, saying,

27 ''Let me pass through thy land : I will
go along by the highway, I will neither
turn unto the right hand nor to the left.

28 Thou shalt sell me meat for money,
that I may eat ; and give me water for mo-
ney, that I may drink : eonly I will pass
through on my feet ;

29 (''As the children of Esau which dwell
in Seir, and the Modbites which dwell in
Ar, did unto me ;) until I shall pass over
Jordan into the land which the Lord our
God givcth us.

30 'But Sihon king of Heshbon would
not let us pass by him : for ''the Lord thy
God 'hardened his spirit, and made his heart
obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy
hand, as appeareth this day.

31 And the Lord said unto me. Behold,
to "" give Sihon and his land


that thou

I have begun

before thee : begin to

mayest inherit his land.

32 "Then Sihon came out against us, he
and all his people, to fight at Jahaz.

33 And "the Lord our God delivered
Iiim before us; and Pwe smote him, and
his sons, and all his people.

34 And we took all his cities at that time,
and 9 utterly destroyed f the men, and the
women, and the little ones of every city ;
we left none to remain :

35 Only the cattle we took for a prey unto
ourselves, and the sppil of the cities which
we took.

36 ■■ From Aroer which is by the brink
of the river of Arnon, and from the city
that is by the river, even unto Gilead, there
was not one city too strong for us : ' the
Lord our God delivered all unto us :

37 Only unto the land of the children of
Ammon thou camest not, nor unto any
place of the river 'Jabbok, nor unto the
cities in the mountains, nor unto "what-
soever the Lord our God forbade us.

CHAP. m.

1 The story of the conquest of Og king of Bashan. 11
The bigness of his bed. 12 The distribution of those
lands to the two tribes and half 23 Moses' prayer to
enter into the land. 26 He is permitted to see it.

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 peo-
ple, and his land, into thy hand ; and thou
shalt do unto him as thou didst unto "Sihon
king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Hesh-

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 e 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 Ba-

of the remnant of "giants; behold, his bed-
stead 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 Pthe
cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites
and to the Gadites.

13 lAnd the rest of Gilead, and all Ba-
shan, heing 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 Ge-
shuri, and Maachathi; and 'called them after
his own name, Bashan-havoth-jair, unto this

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 y Chinnereth ^ even unto
the sea of the plain," even the salt sea, || un-
der Ashdoth-pisgah eastward.

18 If 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 f meet for the war.

19 But your wives, and your little ones,
and your cattle, (ybr 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 HAnd ^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 s 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 :

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 north-
ward, and southward, and eastward, and
behold it with thine eyes : for thou shalt not
go over this Jordan.

1 An exhortation to obedience, 41 Moses appointetn the
three cities of refuge on that side Jordan.

NOW therefore hear.ken, O Israel, unto
"the statutes and unto the judgments,
which I teach you, for to do them, that ye
may live, and go in and possess the land
which the Lord God of your fathers giveth

2 ""Ye shall not add unto the. word which
I command you, neither shall ye diminish
aught from it, that ^/e may keep the com-
mandments of the Lord your God which
I command you.

3 Your eyes have seen what the Lord did
because of '=Baal-peor : for all the men that
followed Baal-peor, the Lord thy God hath
destroyed them from among you.

4 But ye that did cleave unto the Lord
your God, are alive every one of you this

5 Behold, I have taught you statutes, and
judgments, even as the Lord my God com-
manded me, that ye should do so in the land
whither ye go to possess it.

6 Keep therefore and do them : for this is
''your wisdom and your understanding in the
sight of the nations, which shall hear all
these statutes, and say. Surely this great
nation is a wise and understanding people.

7 For ^what nation is there so great, who
hath ^ God so nigh unto them, as the Lord
our God is in all things that we call upon
him for ?

8 And what nation is there so great, that
hath statutes and judgments so righteous
as all this law, which I set before you this

9 Only take heed to thyself, and ^kecp thy
soul diligently, '•lest thou forget the things
which thine eyes have seen, and lest they de-
part from thy heart all the days of thy hfe :
but ' teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons :


A dissuasive against idolatry.

10 Specially ^ the day that thou stoodest
before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when
the Lord said unto, me, Gather me the peo-
ple together, and I will make them hear my
words, that they may learn to fear me all the
days that they shall live upon the earth, and
that they may teach their children.

11 And ye came near and stood under the
mountain; and the 'mountain burned with
fire unto the t midst of heaven, with darkness,
clouds, and thick darkness.

12 " And the Lord spake unto you out of
the midst of the fire : "ye heard the voice of
the words, but saw no similitude ; ° t only
ye heard a voice.

13 pAnd he declared unto you his cove-
nant, which he commanded you to perform,
even i ten commandments ; and "■ he wrote
them upon two tables of stone.

14 IT And ° the Lord commanded me at that
time to teach you statutes and judgments,
that ye might do them in the land whither ye
go over to possess it.

15 ' Take ye therefore good heed unto
yourselves; (for ye saw no manner of "simili-
tude on the day that the Lord spake unto
you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire ; )

16 Lest ye ''corrupt yourselves, and ^make
you a graven image, the similitude of any
figure, ^the likeness of male or female,

17 The likeness of any beast that is on
the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl
that flieth in the air,

18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth
on the ground, the likeness of any fish that
is in the Avaters beneath the earth :

19 And lest thou '^lift up thine eyes unto
heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and
the moon, and the stars, eveii ^ all the host of
heaven, shouldest be driven to "worship them,
and serve them, which the Lord thy God
hath II divided unto all nations under the
whole heaven.

20 But the Lord hath taken you, and
^ brought you forth out of the iron furnace,
even out of Egypt, ''to be unto him a people
of inheritance, as ye are this day.

21 Furthermore, ""the Lord was angry
vdth me for your sakes, and sware that I
should not go over Jordan, and that I
should not go in unto that good land
which the Lord thy God giveth thee for
an inheritance :

22 But el must die in this land, •>! must
not go over Jordan : but ye shall go over,

children's children, and ye shall have re-
mained long in the land, and " shall corrupt

him to anger ;

terly perish from otF the land whereunto ye

prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly
be destroyed.

27 And the Lord ■■ shall scatter you among
the nations, and ye shall be left few in num-
ber among the heathen, whither the Lord
shall lead you.

28 And nhere ye shall serve gods, the
work of men's hands, wood and stone, * which

stroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy
