The story of the conquest of Og king of Bashan.
Deuteronomy 3:1 Then we turned & went vp the waye to Basan. And Og the kynge of Basan came out agaynst vs: he and all hys people to battel at Edrai. Deuteronomy 3:2 And the Lord sayde vnto me: feare him not, for I wyll delyuer hym, & all his people and hys lande into thy hande, and thou shalt do vnto him, as thou dyddest vnto Sehon kinge of the Amorites, which dwelt at Hesbon. Deuteronomy 3:3 And so the Lorde oure God delyuered into oure handes, Og also the kynge of Basan and all hys folke. And we smote him, vntyll none was lefte hym alyue. Deuteronomy 3:4 And we toke all his cyties the same ceason (nether was there a cytie which we toke not from them) euen thre score cyties thorow out all the region of Argob, the kyngdome of Og in Basan. Deuteronomy 3:5 All these cyties also were made stronge with hye walles, gates and barres, besyde vnwalled townes a greate meanye. Deuteronomy 3:6 And we vtterly destroyed them, as we dyd vnto Sehon kynge of Hesbon, bringyng to nought all the cyties, with men, wemen and chyldren. Deuteronomy 3:7 But all the catell and the spoyle of the cyties, we caughte for oure selues. Deuteronomy 3:8 And thus we toke the same ceason, out of the hande of two kynges of the Amorites, the lande that was on the other syde Iordan, from the ryuer of Arnon vnto mount Hermon Deuteronomy 3:9 (whych Hermon the Sidons call Syrion, and the Amorites call it Senyr) Deuteronomy 3:10 all the cyties that laye in the playne, and all Gilead and all Basan vnto Salecha and Edrai, cityes of the kyngdome of Og in Basan.
The bigness of his bed.
Deuteronomy 3:11 For onely Og kynge of Basan remayned of the remnaunt of the gyauntes, whose bed was a bed of yron. And is it not yet at Rabah amonge the chyldren of Ammon? .ix. cubytes doth the length therof conteyne, and foure cubytes the breadth of it, after the cubite of a man.
The distribution of those lands to the two tribes and half.
Deuteronomy 3:12 And so we conquered this lande the same tyme, from Aroer whych is by the ryuer of Arnon, vnto halfe mount Gilead, & the cities therof gaue I vnto the Rubenites and Gaddites. Deuteronomy 3:13 And the rest of Gilead and all Basan of the kyngdome of Og, gaue I vnto the halfe trybe of Manasse: euen all the rygyon of Argob with all Basan: which is called the lande of gyauntes. Deuteronomy 3:14 Iair the sonne of Manasse toke all the region of Argob vnto the coastes of Gesuri and Maachati, and called them after hys owne name: Basan Hauoth Iair vnto thys daye. Deuteronomy 3:15 And I gaue Gilead vnto Machir. Deuteronomy 3:16 And vnto the Rubenites and Gaddites I gaue halfe Gilead vnto the ryuer of Arnon, halfe the valey & beyonde, euen vnto the ryuer Iabock, which is the border of the chyldren of Ammon: Deuteronomy 3:17 the playne also and Iordan and the coast therof, from Ceneroth euen vnto the see whych is in the playne, euen the salt see vnder the springes of the hyll, eastwarde.
Deuteronomy 3:18 And I commaunded you the same tyme sayinge: the Lorde youre God hath geuen you thys lande to enioye it: ye shall go harnessed before youre brethren the chyldren of Israel, all that are mete for the warre. Deuteronomy 3:19 Youre wyues onely, youre chyldren, and youre catell (for I wote that ye haue moche catell) shall abyde in youre cyties which I haue geuen you, Deuteronomy 3:20 vntill the Lorde haue geuen rest vnto youre brethren as well as vnto you, and vntyll they also haue conquered the lande, whyche the Lord youre God hath geuen them beyonde Iordan: and then shall ye returne agayne, euery man vnto hys possession which I haue geuen you.
Deuteronomy 3:21 And I warned Iosua the same tyme sayinge: thyne eyes haue sene all þt the Lorde youre God hath done vnto these two kinges euen so shall he do vnto all kyngdomes whyther thou goest. Deuteronomy 3:22 Ye shall not feare them, for the Lord youre God, he shall fyghte for you.
Moses' prayer to enter into the land.
Deuteronomy 3:23 And I besoughte the Lorde the same tyme sayinge: Deuteronomy 3:24 O Lorde God, thou hast begonne to shewe thy seruaunte thy greatnesse and thy myghtye hande, for els where is there a God in heauen or in erth, that can do after thy workes and after thy power? Deuteronomy 3:25 let me go ouer and se the good lande that is beyonde Iordan, that goodly mountayne, and Libanon.
He is permitted to see it.
Deuteronomy 3:26 But the Lorde was angrye wyth me for youre sakes, and wolde not heare me. And þe Lorde sayed vnto me: be content, speake no moare vnto me of this matter. Deuteronomy 3:27 Get the vp into the toppe of the hyll, and lyfte vp thyne eyes westwarde, north warde, southwarde, and eastewarde, and beholde it wyth thyne eyes, for thou shalt not go ouer thys Iordan. Deuteronomy 3:28 But charge Iosua: and courage him, & bolden him. For he shal go before this people, and he shall deuyde vnto them the lande whyche thou shalt se. Deuteronomy 3:29 And so we abode in the valye ouer agaynst the house of Peor.
