The Wrath of God - Deuteronomy 3

Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan:  and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all  his people, to battle at Edrei. Deuteronomy 3:1 

Deuteronomy 3:2 And the LORD said  unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his  people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto  him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which  dwelt at Heshbon. 

Deuteronomy 3:3 So the LORD our God delivered  into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his  people: and we smote him until none was left to him  remaining. 

Deuteronomy 3:4 And we took all his cities at that time,  there was not a city which we took not from them,  threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og  in Bashan. 

Deuteronomy 3:5 All these cities were fenced with high  walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.  

Deuteronomy 3:6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon  king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and  children, of every city. 

Deuteronomy 3:7 But all the cattle, and the spoil  of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves. 

Deuteronomy 3:8 And we  took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the  Amorites the land that was on this side Jordan, from the  river of Arnon unto mount Hermon; 

Deuteronomy 3:9 (Which  Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it  Shenir;) 

Deuteronomy 3:10 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead,  and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the  kingdom of Og in Bashan. 

Deuteronomy 3:11 For only Og king of  Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his  bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the  children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and  four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man. 

Deuteronomy 3:12  And this land, which we possessed at that time, from  Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half mount  Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites  and to the Gadites. 

Deuteronomy 3:13 And the rest of Gilead, and all  Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half  tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan,  which was called the land of giants. 

Deuteronomy 3:14 Jair the son of  Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the coasts of  Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own  name, Bashan- havoth-jair, unto this day. 

Deuteronomy 3:15 And I gave  Gilead unto Machir. 

Deuteronomy 3:16 And unto the Reubenites and  unto the Gadites I gave from Gilead even unto the river  Arnon half the valley, and the border even unto the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;   

Deuteronomy 3:17 The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast thereof,  from Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, even the  salt sea, under Ashdoth-pisgah eastward.  

Deuteronomy 3:18 And I commanded you at that time, saying, The  LORD your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye  shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of  Israel, all that are meet for the war. 

Deuteronomy 3:19 But your  wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I know  that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I  have given you; 

Deuteronomy 3:20 Until the LORD have given rest  unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and until they also  possess the land which the LORD your God hath given  them beyond Jordan: and then shall ye return every man  unto his possession, which I have given you.  

Deuteronomy 3:21 And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying,  Thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your God hath done  unto these two kings: so shall the LORD do unto all the  kingdoms whither thou passest. 

Deuteronomy 3:22 Ye shall not fear  them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you. 

Deuteronomy 3:23  And I besought the LORD at that time, saying, 

Deuteronomy 3:24 O  Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy  greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in  heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and  according to thy might? 

Deuteronomy 3:25 I pray thee, let me go over,  and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly  mountain, and Lebanon. 

Deuteronomy 3:26 But the LORD was wroth  with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the  LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto  me of this matter. 

Deuteronomy 3:27 Get thee up into the top of Pisgah,  and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and  southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes:  for thou shalt not go over this Jordan. 

Deuteronomy 3:28 But charge  Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall  go over before this people, and he shall cause them to  inherit the land which thou shalt see. 

Deuteronomy 3:29 So we abode in  the valley over against Beth- peor.
