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.
Deuteronomy 2:34That is, set apart (devoted) as an offering to the Lord (for destruction)
21 Then Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,22 “Let me pass through your land. We will not turn aside into field or vineyard. We will not drink the water of a well. We will go by the King's Highway until we have passed through your territory.”23 But Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his territory. He gathered all his people together and went out against Israel to the wilderness and came to Jahaz and fought against Israel.24 And Israel defeated him with the edge of the sword and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as to the Ammonites, for the border of the Ammonites was strong.25 And Israel took all these cities, and Israel settled in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all its villages.
