Distribution of lands.

10 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; m behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath n of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.

12 And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, o which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.

13 And p the rest of Gilead and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.

14 Jair qthe son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri r and Maachathi; and called them after his own name, Bashan-havoth-jair, unto this day. 15 And I gave Gilead unto Machir. 16 And unto the Reubenites, and unto the Gadites, I gave from Gilead even unto the river Arnon, half the valley, and the border, even unto the river Jabbok, which is s the border of the children of Ammon:

17 The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast, thereof, from Chinnereth t even unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, 1 under Ashdothpisgah eastward.

18 And I commanded you at that time, saying, The LORD your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye u shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all that are 2 meet for the war.

19 But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have given you;

20 Until the LORD have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and until they also possess the land which the LORD your God hath given them beyond Jordan: and then v shall ye return every man unto his possession which I have given you.

21 T And w I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings so shall the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.

in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear q me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the 1 midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.

12 And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; 2 only ye heard a voice.r

13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even s ten commandments; and he t wrote them upon two tables of stone.

14 ¶ And u the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

15 Take v ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; (for ye saw no manner of similitude w on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire ;) 16 Lest ye corrupt x yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness y of male or female,

17 The likeness of any z beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,

18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:

5 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, w Is.40.18. that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. 6 Keep, therefore, and do them: for this is your wisdom h and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely i this great 3 or, impart. them, and serve them, which the

32 For r ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man i Ps. 119.2. upon the earth, and ask from thek Ps. 119.5. one side of heaven unto the other,

33 Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, s as thou hast heard, and live?

34 Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, t by signs, u and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty v hand, and by a stretched-out w arm, and by great terrors, & according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?

35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.

36 Out of heaven y he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.

37 And because he z loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in hus sight with his a mighty power out of Egypt;

38 To drive out nations from before thee greater b and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.

39 Know therefore this day, and consider c it in thine heart, that d the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath there is none else.

40 Thou e shalt keep therefore This statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well ƒ with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.
