Bible: Deuteronomy 3:12-17
Distribution of the Transjordanian Allotments
3:12 This is the land we brought under our control at that time: The territory extending from Aroer 1 by the Wadi Arnon and half the Gilead hill country with its cities I gave to the Reubenites and Gadites. 2 3:13 The rest of Gilead and all of Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to half the tribe of Manasseh. 3 (All the region of Argob, 4 that is, all Bashan, is called the land of Rephaim. 3:14 Jair, son of Manasseh, took all the Argob region as far as the border with the Geshurites 5 and Maacathites 6 (namely Bashan) and called it by his name, Havvoth-Jair, 7 which it retains to this very day.) 3:15 I gave Gilead to Machir. 8 3:16 To the Reubenites and Gadites I allocated the territory extending from Gilead as far as Wadi Arnon (the exact middle of the wadi was a boundary) all the way to the Wadi Jabbok, the Ammonite border. 3:17 The Arabah and the Jordan River 9 were also a border, from the sea of Chinnereth 10 to the sea of the Arabah (that is, the Salt Sea), 11 beneath the watershed 12 of Pisgah 13 to the east.
