Joshua 12

1 Now these are the kings of the land whom the Israelites defeated, whose land they took possession of on the east side of the Jordan, from the Arʹnon Valley up to Mount Herʹmon and all the Arʹabah toward the east:

2 King Siʹhon of the Amʹorites, who lived in Heshʹbon and ruled from Aroʹer, which was on the rim of the Arʹnon Valley, and from the middle of the valley, and half of Gilʹead as far as the Valley of Jabʹbok, the boundary of the Amʹmonites.

3 He also ruled over the Arʹabah as far as the Sea of Chinʹnereth toward the east and as far as the Sea of the Arʹabah, the Salt Sea, to the east in the direction of Beth-jeshʹimoth, and toward the south under the slopes of Pisʹgah.

4 Also the territory of King Og of Baʹshan, who was one of the last of the Rephʹaim and who lived in Ashʹtaroth and Edʹrei

5 and ruled in Mount Herʹmon, in Salʹecah, and in all Baʹshan, as far as the boundary of the Geshʹurites and the Maacʹathites, and half of Gilʹead, to the territory of King Siʹhon of Heshʹbon.

6 Moses the servant of Jehovah and the Israelites defeated them, after which Moses the servant of Jehovah gave their land as a possession to the Reuʹbenites, the Gadʹites, and the half tribe of Manasʹseh.
