3 “Then we turned and went up the road to Bashan; and aOg king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle bat Edrei. 2 And the Lord said to me, ‘Do not fear him, for I have delivered him and all his people and his land into your hand; you shall do to him as you did to cSihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.’
3 “So the Lord our God also delivered into our hands Og king of Bashan, with all his people, and we 1attacked him until he had no survivors remaining. 4 And we took all his cities at that time; there was not a city which we did not take from them: sixty cities, dall the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 5 All these cities were fortified with high walls, gates, and bars, besides a great many rural towns. 6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did to Sihon king eof Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children of every city. 7 But all the livestock and the spoil of the cities we took as booty for ourselves.
8 “And at that time we took the fland from the hand of the two kings of the Amorites who were on this side of the Jordan, from the River Arnon to Mount gHermon 9 (the Sidonians call hHermon Sirion, and the Amorites call it Senir), 10 iall the cities of the plain, all Gilead, and jall Bashan, as far as Salcah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
11 k“For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of lthe 2giants. Indeed his bedstead was an iron bedstead. (Is it not in mRabbah of the people of Ammon?) Nine cubits is its length and four cubits its width, according to the standard cubit.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
