Deuteronomy 3:1–11

Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and aOg the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle bat Edrei. And the Lord said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto cSihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon. So the Lord our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: dand we smote him until none was left to him remaining. And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, eall the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside funwalled towns a great many. And we gutterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king hof Heshbon, utterly destroying ithe men, women, and children, of every city. But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves. And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites the land that was on this side Jordan, from the river of Arnon unto mount Hermon; (Which jHermon the Sidonians call kSirion; and the Amorites call it lShenir;) 10 All the cities of mthe plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto nSalchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of ogiants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in pRabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit qof a man.
