Bible: Num 21:21-25


The Victory over Sihon and Og


Then Israel sent messengers to King Sihon of the Amorites, saying, 2 

21:22Let us 3  pass through your land; 4  we will not turn aside into the fields or into the vineyards, nor will we drink water from any well, but we will go along the King’s Highway until we pass your borders.” 21:23 But Sihon did not permit Israel to pass through his border; he 5  gathered all his forces 6  together and went out against Israel into the wilderness. When 7  he came to Jahaz, he fought against Israel. 21:24 But the Israelites 8  defeated him in battle 9  and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as the Ammonites, for the border of the Ammonites was strongly defended. 21:25 So Israel took all these cities; and Israel settled in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all its villages. 10
