12 “And this nland, which we possessed at that time, ofrom Aroer, which is by the River Arnon, and half the mountains of Gilead and pits cities, I gave to the Reubenites and the Gadites. 13 qThe rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to half the tribe of Manasseh. (All the region of Argob, with all Bashan, was called the land of the 3giants. 14 rJair the son of Manasseh took all the region of Argob, sas far as the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and tcalled Bashan after his own name, 4Havoth Jair, to this day.)
15 “Also I gave uGilead to Machir. 16 And to the Reubenites vand the Gadites I gave from Gilead as far as the River Arnon, the middle of the river as the border, as far as the River Jabbok, wthe border of the people of Ammon; 17 the plain also, with the Jordan as the border, from Chinnereth xas far as the east side of the Sea of the Arabah y(the Salt Sea), below the slopes of Pisgah.
18 “Then I commanded you at that time, saying: ‘The Lord your God has given you this land to possess. zAll you men of valor shall cross over armed before your brethren, the children of Israel. 19 But your wives, your little ones, and your livestock (I know that you have much livestock) shall stay in your cities which I have given you, 20 until the Lord has given arest to your brethren as to you, and they also possess the land which the Lord your God is giving them beyond the Jordan. Then each of you may breturn to his possession which I have given you.’
21 “And cI commanded Joshua at that time, saying, ‘Your eyes have seen all that the Lord your God has done to these two kings; so will the Lord do to all the kingdoms through which you pass. 22 You must not fear them, for dthe Lord your God Himself fights for you.’
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.
