Deuteronomy

Victory over the Amorites: Og.  Dt.3.1-11 - Nu.21.31-35

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. 2But Yahweh 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 dwelt at Heshbon.' 3So Yahweh our God gave into our hand Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people; and we smote him until no survivor was left to him. 4And we took all his cities at that time - there was not a city which we did not take from them - sixty cities, the whole region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 5All these were cities fortified with high walls, gates, and bars, besides very many unwalled villages. 6And we utterly destroyed them, as we did to Sihon the king of Heshbon, destroying every city, men, women, and children. 7But all the cattle and the spoil of the cities we took as our booty. 8So we took the land at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, from the valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon 9(the Sidonians call Hermon Sirion, while the Amorites call it Senir), 10all the cities of the tableland and all Gilead and all Bashan, as far as Salecah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11(For only Og the king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaim; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbah of the Ammonites? Nine cubits was its length, and four cubits its breadth, according to the common cubit.)

Settlement: east of the Jordan.  Dt.3.12-29 - Nu.32.1-42

12"When we took possession of this land at that time, I gave to the Reubenites and the Gadites the territory beginning at Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and half the hill country of Gilead with its cities; 13the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, that is, all the region of Argob, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh. (The whole of that Bashan is called the land of Rephaim. 14Jair the Manassite took all the region of Argob, that is, Bashan, as far as the border of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, and called the villages after his own name, Havvoth-jair, as it is to this day.) 15To Machir I gave Gilead, 16and to the Reubenites and the Gadites I gave the territory from Gilead as far as the valley of the Arnon, with the middle of the valley as a boundary, as far over as the river Jabbok, the boundary of the Ammonites; 17the Arabah also, with the Jordan as the boundary, from Chinnereth as far as the sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, under the slopes of Pisgah on the east.

18"And I commanded you at that time, saying, 'Yahweh your God has given you this land to possess; all your men of valor shall pass over armed before your brethren the people of Israel. 19But your wives, your little ones, and your cattle (I know that you have many cattle) shall remain in the cities which I have given you, 20until Yahweh gives rest to your brethren, as to you, and they also occupy the land which Yahweh your God gives them beyond the Jordan; then you shall return every man to his possession which I have given you.' 21And I commanded Joshua at that time, 'Your eyes have seen all that Yahweh your God has done to these two kings; so will Yahweh do to all the kingdoms into which you are going over. 22You shall not fear them; for it is Yahweh your God who fights for you.'

23"And I besought Yahweh at that time, saying, 24'O Lord Yahweh, you have only begun to show your servant your greatness and your mighty hand; for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do such works and mighty acts as yours? 25Let me go over, I pray, and see the good land beyond the Jordan, that goodly hill country, and Lebanon.' 26But Yahweh was angry with me on your account, and would not hearken to me; and Yahweh said to me, 'Let it suffice you; speak no more to me of this matter. 27Go up to the top of Pisgah, and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward, and behold it with your eyes; for you shall not go over this Jordan. 28But charge Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him; for he shall go over at the head of this people, and he shall put them in possession of the land which you shall see.' 29So he remained in the valley opposite Beth-peor.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
