Deuteronomy 2:26-3:5English Standard Version (ESV)
The Defeat of King Sihon
26 “So I sent messengers from the wilderness of Kedemoth to Sihon the king of Heshbon, with words of peace, saying,27 ‘Let me pass through your land. I will go only by the road; I will turn aside neither to the right nor to the left.28 You shall sell me food for money, that I may eat, and give me water for money, that I may drink. Only let me pass through on foot,29 as the sons of Esau who live in Seir and the Moabites who live in Ar did for me, until I go over the Jordan into the land that the Lord our God is giving to us.’30 But Sihon the king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him, for the Lord your God hardened his spirit and made his heart obstinate, that he might give him into your hand, as he is this day.31 And the Lord said to me, ‘Behold, I have begun to give Sihon and his land over to you. Begin to take possession, that you may occupy his land.’32 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Jahaz.33 And the Lord our God gave him over to us, and we defeated him and his sons and all his people.34 And we captured all his cities at that time and devoted to destruction[a] every city, men, women, and children. We left no survivors.35 Only the livestock we took as spoil for ourselves, with the plunder of the cities that we captured.36 From Aroer, which is on the edge of the Valley of the Arnon, and from the city that is in the valley, as far as Gilead, there was not a city too high for us. The Lord our God gave all into our hands.37 Only to the land of the sons of Ammon you did not draw near, that is, to all the banks of the river Jabbok and the cities of the hill country, whatever the Lord our God had forbidden us.
The Defeat of King Og
3 “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 But the Lord 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 lived at Heshbon.’3 So the Lord our God gave into our hand Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people, and we struck him down until he had no survivor left.4 And we took all his cities at that time—there was not a city that we did not take from them—sixty cities, the whole region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.5 All these were cities fortified with high walls, gates, and bars, besides very many unwalled villages.
