Contemporary English Version
12 Joshua told the men of the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and East Manasseh:[a]
13-14 The Lord’s servant Moses said that the Lord our God has given you land here on the east side of the Jordan River, where you could live in peace. Your wives and children and your animals can stay here in the land Moses gave you. But all of you that can serve in our army must pick up your weapons and lead the men of the other tribes across the Jordan River. They are your relatives, so you must help them 15 conquer the land that the Lord is giving them. The Lord will give peace to them as he has given peace to you, and then you can come back and settle here in the land that Moses promised you.
- 1.12 East Manasseh: The half of Manasseh that settled east of the Jordan River.
