21:1 The Canaanite, the king of Arad, who lived in the South, heard tell that Israel came by the way of Atharim; and he fought against Israel, and took some of them captive.
21:2 Israel vowed a vow to Yahweh, and said, If you will indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities.
21:5 The people spoke against God, and against Moses, Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, and there is no water; and our soul loathes this light bread.
21:6 Yahweh sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.
21:10 The children of Israel journeyed, and encamped in Oboth.
21:11 They journeyed from Oboth, and encamped at Iyeabarim, in the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sunrise.
21:12 From there they journeyed, and encamped in the valley of Zered.
21:13 From there they journeyed, and encamped on the other side of the Arnon, which is in the wilderness, that comes out of the border of the Amorites: for the Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites.
21:14 Therefore it is said in the book of the Wars of Yahweh, Vaheb in Suphah, The valleys of the Arnon,
21:15 The slope of the valleys That inclines toward the dwelling of Ar, Leans on the border of Moab.
21:17 Then sang Israel this song: Spring up, well; sing you to it:
21:18 The well, which the princes dug, Which the nobles of the people dug, With the scepter, [and] with their poles. From the wilderness [they journeyed] to Mattanah;
21:19 and from Mattanah to Nahaliel; and from Nahaliel to Bamoth;
21:20 and from Bamoth to the valley that is in the field of Moab, to the top of Pisgah, which looks down on the desert.
21:21 Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,
21:22 Let me pass through your land: we will not turn aside into field, or into vineyard; we will not drink of the water of the wells: we will go by the king`s highway, until we have passed your border.
21:23 Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his border: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness, and came to Jahaz; and he fought against Israel.
21:24 Israel struck him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, even to the children of Ammon; for the border of the children of Ammon was strong.
21:27 Therefore those who speak in proverbs say, Come you to Heshbon; Let the city of Sihon be built and established:
21:34 Yahweh said to Moses, Don`t fear him: for I have delivered him into your hand, and all his people, and his land; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.
21:35 So they struck him, and his sons and all his people, until there was none left him remaining: and they possessed his land.
