Caleb and Joshua's Dedication - Number 32

Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great multitude of cattle: and when they saw  the land of Jazer, and the land of Gilead, that, behold, the  place was a place for cattle; Numbers 32:1 kjv

Numbers 32:2 The children of Gad  and the children of Reuben came and spake unto Moses,  and to Eleazar the priest, and unto the princes of the  congregation, saying, 

Numbers 32:3 Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer,  and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Shebam, and  Nebo, and Beon, 

Numbers 32:4 Even the country which the  LORD smote before the congregation of Israel, is a land  for cattle, and thy servants have cattle: 

Numbers 32:5 Wherefore,  said they, if we have found grace in thy sight, let this land  be given unto thy servants for a possession, and bring us  not over Jordan.   
Numbers 32:6 And Moses said unto the children of Gad and to  the children of Reuben, Shall your brethren go to war, and  shall ye sit here? 

Numbers 32:7 And wherefore discourage ye the  heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land  which the LORD hath given them? 

Numbers 32:8 Thus did your  fathers, when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea to see the  land. 

Numbers 32:9 For when they went up unto the valley of  Eshcol, and saw the land, they discouraged the heart of the  children of Israel, that they should not go into the land  which the LORD had given them. 

Numbers 32:10 And the  LORD’S anger was kindled the same time, and he sware,  saying, 

Numbers 32:11 Surely none of the men that came up out of  Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land  which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob;  because they have not wholly followed me: 

Numbers 32:12 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the  son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the LORD.  

Numbers 32:13 And the LORD’S anger was kindled against Israel,  and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years,  until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the  LORD, was consumed. 

Numbers 32:14 And, behold, ye are risen  up in your fathers’ stead, an increase of sinful men, to  augment yet the fierce anger of the LORD toward Israel.  

Numbers 32:15 For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet  again leave them in the wilderness; and ye shall destroy all  this people.  

Numbers 32:16 And they came near unto him, and said, We will  build sheepfolds here for our cattle, and cities for our little  ones: 

Numbers 32:17 But we ourselves will go ready armed before  the children of Israel, until we have brought them unto their  place: and our little ones shall dwell in the fenced cities  because of the inhabitants of the land. 

Numbers 32:18 We will not  return unto our houses, until the children of Israel have  inherited every man his inheritance. 

Numbers 32:19 For we will  not inherit with them on yonder side Jordan, or forward;  because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side Jordan  eastward.  

Numbers 32:20 And Moses said unto them, If ye will do this  thing, if ye will go armed before the LORD to war, 

Numbers 32:21  And will go all of you armed over Jordan before the LORD,  until he hath driven out his enemies from before him,  

Numbers 32:22 And the land be subdued before the LORD: then  afterward ye shall return, and be guiltless before the LORD,  and before Israel; and this land shall be your possession  before the LORD. 

Numbers 32:23 But if ye will not do so, behold,  ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will  find you out. 

Numbers 32:24 Build you cities for your little ones,  and folds for your sheep; and do that which hath proceeded  out of your mouth. 

Numbers 32:25 And the children of Gad and the  children of Reuben spake unto Moses, saying, Thy servants  will do as my lord commandeth. 

Numbers 32:26 Our little ones,  our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle, shall be there in the  cities of Gilead: 

Numbers 32:27 But thy servants will pass over,  every man armed for war, before the LORD to battle, as my  lord saith. 

Numbers 32:28 So concerning them Moses commanded  Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the chief  fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel: 

Numbers 32:29 And Moses said unto them, If the children of Gad and the  children of Reuben will pass with you over Jordan, every  man armed to battle, before the LORD, and the land shall be  subdued before you; then ye shall give them the land of  Gilead for a possession: 

Numbers 32:30 But if they will not pass  over with you armed, they shall have possessions among  you in the land of Canaan. 

Numbers 32:31 And the children of Gad  and the children of Reuben answered, saying, As the LORD  hath said unto thy servants, so will we do. 

Numbers 32:32 We will  pass over armed before the LORD into the land of Canaan,  that the possession of our inheritance on this side Jordan  may be ours. 

Numbers 32:33 And Moses gave unto them, even  to the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben, and  unto half the tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph, the  kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of  Og king of Bashan, the land, with the cities thereof in the  coasts, even the cities of the country round about.   

Numbers 32:34 And the children of Gad built Dibon, and  Ataroth, and Aroer, 

Numbers 32:35 And Atroth, Shophan, and  Jaazer, and Jogbehah, 

Numbers 32:36 And Beth-nimrah, and Bethharan,  fenced cities: and folds for sheep. 

Numbers 32:37 And the  children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and  Kirjathaim, 

Numbers 32:38 And Nebo, and Baal-meon, (their  names being changed,) and Shibmah: and gave other names  unto the cities which they builded. 

Numbers 32:39 And the  children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead, and  took it, and dispossessed the Amorite which was in it.  

Numbers 32:40 And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of  Manasseh; and he dwelt therein. 

Numbers 32:41 And Jair the son  of Manasseh went and took the small towns thereof, and  called them Havoth-jair. 

Numbers 32:42 And Nobah went and took  Kenath, and the villages thereof, and 
called it Nobah, after  his own name.
