Deuteronomy 2


1  Then we turned,6437 and took our journey5265 into the wilderness4057 by the way1870 of the Red5488 sea,3220 as834 the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 me: and we compassed5437 853 mount2022 Seir8165 many7227 days.3117

2  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 me, saying,559

3  Ye have compassed5437 853 this2088 mountain2022 long enough:7227 turn6437 you northward.6828

4  And command6680 thou the people,5971 saying,559 Ye859 are to pass through5674 the coast1366 of your brethren251 the children1121 of Esau,6215 which dwell3427 in Seir;8165 and they shall be afraid3372 of4480 you: take ye good heed unto yourselves therefore:8104 3966

5  Meddle1624 not408 with them; for3588 I will not3808 give5414 you of their land,4480 776 no, not so much5704 as a foot breadth;4096 3709 7272 because3588 I have given5414 853 mount2022 Seir8165 unto Esau6215 for a possession.3425

6  Ye shall buy7666 meat400 of4480 854 them for money,3701 that ye may eat;398 and ye shall also1571 buy3739 water4325 of4480 854 them for money,3701 that ye may drink.8354

7  For3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 hath blessed1288 thee in all3605 the works4639 of thy hand:3027 he knoweth3045 thy walking through1980 853 this2088 great1419 wilderness:4057 these2088 forty705 years8141 the LORD3068 thy God430 hath been with5973 thee; thou hast lacked2637 nothing.3808 1697

8  And when we passed by5674 from4480 854 our brethren251 the children1121 of Esau,6215 which dwelt3427 in Seir,8165 through the way4480 1870 of the plain6160 from Elath,4480 359 and from Ezion-gaber,4480 6100 we turned6437 and passed5674 by the way1870 of the wilderness4057 of Moab.4124

9  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Distress6696 not408 853 the Moabites,4124 neither408 contend1624 with them in battle:4421 for3588 I will not3808 give5414 thee of their land4480 776 for a possession;3425 because3588 I have given5414 853 Ar6144 unto the children1121 of Lot3876 for a possession.3425

10  The Emims368 dwelt3427 therein in times past,6440 a people5971 great,1419 and many,7227 and tall,7311 as the Anakims;6062

11  Which1992 also637 were accounted2803 giants,7497 as the Anakims;6062 but the Moabites4125 call7121 them Emims.368

12  The Horims2752 also dwelt3427 in Seir8165 formerly;6440 but the children1121 of Esau6215 succeeded3423 them, when they had destroyed8045 them from before4480 6440 them, and dwelt3427 in their stead;8478 as834 Israel3478 did6213 unto the land776 of his possession,3425 which834 the LORD3068 gave5414 unto them.

13  Now6258 rise up,6965 said I, and get you over5674 853 the brook5158 Zered.2218 And we went over5674 853 the brook5158 Zered.2218

14  And the space3117 in which834 we came1980 from Kadesh-barnea,4480 6947 until5704 834 we were come over5674 853 the brook5158 Zered,2218 was thirty7970 and eight8083 years;8141 until5704 all3605 the generation1755 of the men376 of war4421 were wasted8552 out from among4480 7130 the host,4264 as834 the LORD3068 swore7650 unto them.

15  For indeed1571 the hand3027 of the LORD3068 was1961 against them, to destroy2000 them from among4480 7130 the host,4264 until5704 they were consumed.8552

16  So it came to pass,1961 when834 all3605 the men376 of war4421 were consumed8552 and dead4191 from among4480 7130 the people,5971

17  That the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 me, saying,559

18  Thou859 art to pass over5674 through 853 Ar6144 853 the coast1366 of Moab,4124 this day:3117

19  And when thou comest nigh7126 over against4136 the children1121 of Ammon,5983 distress6696 them not,408 nor408 meddle1624 with them: for3588 I will not3808 give5414 thee of the land4480 776 of the children1121 of Ammon5983 any possession;3425 because3588 I have given5414 it unto the children1121 of Lot3876 for a possession.3425

20  ( That1931 also637 was accounted2803 a land776 of giants:7497 giants7497 dwelt3427 therein in old time;6440 and the Ammonites5984 call7121 them Zamzummims;2157

21  A people5971 great,1419 and many,7227 and tall,7311 as the Anakims;6062 but the LORD3068 destroyed8045 them before4480 6440 them; and they succeeded3423 them, and dwelt3427 in their stead:8478

22  As834 he did6213 to the children1121 of Esau,6215 which dwelt3427 in Seir,8165 when834 he destroyed8045 853 the Horims2752 from before4480 6440 them; and they succeeded3423 them, and dwelt3427 in their stead8478 even unto5704 this2088 day:3117

23  And the Avims5757 which dwelt3427 in Hazerim,2699 even unto5704 Azzah,5804 the Caphtorims,3732 which came forth3318 out of Caphtor,4480 3731 destroyed8045 them, and dwelt3427 in their stead.)8478

24  Rise ye up,6965 take your journey,5265 and pass over5674 853 the river5158 Arnon:769 behold,7200 I have given5414 into thine hand3027 853 Sihon5511 the Amorite,567 king4428 of Heshbon,2809 and his land:776 begin2490 to possess3423 it, and contend1624 with him in battle.4421

25  This2088 day3117 will I begin2490 to put5414 the dread6343 of thee and the fear3374 of thee upon5921 the nations5971 that are under8478 the whole3605 heaven,8064 who834 shall hear8085 report8088 of thee, and shall tremble,7264 and be in anguish2342 because4480 6440 of thee.

26  And I sent7971 messengers4397 out of the wilderness4480 4057 of Kedemoth6932 unto413 Sihon5511 king4428 of Heshbon2809 with words1697 of peace,7965 saying,559

27  Let me pass5674 through thy land:776 I will go1980 along by the highway,1870 1870 I will neither3808 turn5493 unto the right hand3225 nor to the left.8040

28  Thou shalt sell7666 me meat400 for money,3701 that I may eat;398 and give5414 me water4325 for money,3701 that I may drink:8354 only7535 I will pass through5674 on my feet;7272

29  (As834 the children1121 of Esau6215 which dwell3427 in Seir,8165 and the Moabites4125 which dwell3427 in Ar,6144 did6213 unto me;) until5704 834 I shall pass over5674 853 Jordan3383 into413 the land776 which834 the LORD3068 our God430 giveth5414 us.

30  But Sihon5511 king4428 of Heshbon2809 would14 not3808 let us pass5674 by him: for3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 hardened7185 853 his spirit,7307 and made his heart obstinate,553 853 3824 that4616 he might deliver5414 him into thy hand,3027 as appeareth this2088 day.3117

31  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Behold,7200 I have begun2490 to give5414 853 Sihon5511 and his land776 before6440 thee: begin2490 to possess,3423 that thou mayest inherit3423 853 his land.776

32  Then Sihon5511 came out3318 against7125 us, he1931 and all3605 his people,5971 to fight4421 at Jahaz.3096

33  And the LORD3068 our God430 delivered5414 him before6440 us; and we smote5221 853 him, and his sons,1121 and all3605 his people.5971

34  And we took3920 853 all3605 his cities5892 at that1931 time,6256 and utterly destroyed2763 the men,4962 and the women,802 and the little ones,2945 853 of every3605 city,5892 we left7604 none3808 to remain:8300

35  Only7535 the cattle929 we took for a prey962 unto ourselves, and the spoil7998 of the cities5892 which834 we took.3920

36  From4480 Aroer,6177 which834 is by5921 the brink8193 of the river5158 of Arnon,769 and from the city5892 that834 is by the river,5158 even unto5704 Gilead,1568 there was1961 not3808 one city7151 too strong7682 for4480 us: the LORD3068 our God430 delivered5414 853 all3605 unto6440 us:

37  Only7535 unto413 the land776 of the children1121 of Ammon5983 thou camest7126 not,3808 nor unto any3605 place3027 of the river5158 Jabbok,2999 nor unto the cities5892 in the mountains,2022 nor unto whatsoever3605 the LORD3068 our God430 forbade6680 us.


1 καὶ ἐπιστραφέντες ἀπήραμεν εἰς τὴν ἔρημον ὁδὸν θάλασσαν ἐρυθράν ὃν τρόπον ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρός με καὶ ἐκυκλώσαμεν τὸ ὄρος τὸ Σηιρ ἡμέρας πολλάς

2 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με

3 ἱκανούσθω ὑμῖν κυκλοῦν τὸ ὄρος τοῦτο ἐπιστράφητε οὖν ἐπὶ βορρᾶν

4 καὶ τῷ λαῷ ἔντειλαι λέγων ὑμεῖς παραπορεύεσθε διὰ τῶν ὁρίων τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν υἱῶν Ησαυ οἳ κατοικοῦσιν ἐν Σηιρ καὶ φοβηθήσονται ὑμᾶς καὶ εὐλαβηθήσονται ὑμᾶς σφόδρα

5 μὴ συνάψητε πρὸς αὐτοὺς πόλεμον οὐ γὰρ μὴ δῶ ὑμῖν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν οὐδὲ βῆμα ποδός ὅτι ἐν κλήρῳ δέδωκα τοῖς υἱοῖς Ησαυ τὸ ὄρος τὸ Σηιρ

6 βρώματα ἀργυρίου ἀγοράσατε παρ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ φάγεσθε καὶ ὕδωρ μέτρῳ λήμψεσθε παρ᾽ αὐτῶν ἀργυρίου καὶ πίεσθε

7 ὁ γὰρ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν εὐλόγησέν σε ἐν παντὶ ἔργῳ τῶν χειρῶν σου διάγνωθι πῶς διῆλθες τὴν ἔρημον τὴν μεγάλην καὶ τὴν φοβερὰν ἐκείνην ἰδοὺ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη κύριος ὁ θεός σου μετὰ σοῦ οὐκ ἐπεδεήθης ῥήματος

8 καὶ παρήλθομεν τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ἡμῶν υἱοὺς Ησαυ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν Σηιρ παρὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τὴν Αραβα ἀπὸ Αιλων καὶ ἀπὸ Γασιωνγαβερ καὶ ἐπιστρέψαντες παρήλθομεν ὁδὸν ἔρημον Μωαβ

9 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με μὴ ἐχθραίνετε τοῖς Μωαβίταις καὶ μὴ συνάψητε πρὸς αὐτοὺς πόλεμον οὐ γὰρ μὴ δῶ ὑμῖν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν ἐν κλήρῳ τοῖς γὰρ υἱοῖς Λωτ δέδωκα τὴν Σηιρ κληρονομεῖν

10 οἱ Ομμιν πρότεροι ἐνεκάθηντο ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς ἔθνος μέγα καὶ πολὺ καὶ ἰσχύοντες ὥσπερ οἱ Ενακιμ

11 Ραφαϊν λογισθήσονται καὶ οὗτοι ὥσπερ οἱ Ενακιμ καὶ οἱ Μωαβῖται ἐπονομάζουσιν αὐτοὺς Ομμιν

12 καὶ ἐν Σηιρ ἐνεκάθητο ὁ Χορραῖος πρότερον καὶ υἱοὶ Ησαυ ἀπώλεσαν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐξέτριψαν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἀντ᾽ αὐτῶν ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησεν Ισραηλ τὴν γῆν τῆς κληρονομίας αὐτοῦ ἣν δέδωκεν κύριος αὐτοῖς

13 νῦν οὖν ἀνάστητε καὶ ἀπάρατε ὑμεῖς καὶ παραπορεύεσθε τὴν φάραγγα Ζαρετ καὶ παρήλθομεν τὴν φάραγγα Ζαρετ

14 καὶ αἱ ἡμέραι ἃς παρεπορεύθημεν ἀπὸ Καδης Βαρνη ἕως οὗ παρήλθομεν τὴν φάραγγα Ζαρετ τριάκοντα καὶ ὀκτὼ ἔτη ἕως οὗ διέπεσεν πᾶσα γενεὰ ἀνδρῶν πολεμιστῶν ἀποθνῄσκοντες ἐκ τῆς παρεμβολῆς καθότι ὤμοσεν αὐτοῖς ὁ θεός

15 καὶ ἡ χεὶρ τοῦ θεοῦ ἦν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοῖς ἐξαναλῶσαι αὐτοὺς ἐκ τῆς παρεμβολῆς ἕως οὗ διέπεσαν

16 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐπεὶ διέπεσαν πάντες οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ πολεμισταὶ ἀποθνῄσκοντες ἐκ μέσου τοῦ λαοῦ

17 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρός με λέγων

18 σὺ παραπορεύσῃ σήμερον τὰ ὅρια Μωαβ τὴν Σηιρ

19 καὶ προσάξετε ἐγγὺς υἱῶν Αμμαν μὴ ἐχθραίνετε αὐτοῖς καὶ μὴ συνάψητε αὐτοῖς εἰς πόλεμον οὐ γὰρ μὴ δῶ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς υἱῶν Αμμαν σοὶ ἐν κλήρῳ ὅτι τοῖς υἱοῖς Λωτ δέδωκα αὐτὴν ἐν κλήρῳ

20 γῆ Ραφαϊν λογισθήσεται καὶ γὰρ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς κατῴκουν οἱ Ραφαϊν τὸ πρότερον καὶ οἱ Αμμανῖται ὀνομάζουσιν αὐτοὺς Ζομζομμιν

21 ἔθνος μέγα καὶ πολὺ καὶ δυνατώτερον ὑμῶν ὥσπερ οἱ Ενακιμ καὶ ἀπώλεσεν αὐτοὺς κύριος πρὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ κατεκληρονόμησαν καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἀντ᾽ αὐτῶν ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης

22 ὥσπερ ἐποίησαν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ησαυ τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν ἐν Σηιρ ὃν τρόπον ἐξέτριψαν τὸν Χορραῖον ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ κατεκληρονόμησαν καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἀντ᾽ αὐτῶν ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης

23 καὶ οἱ Ευαῖοι οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν ασηρωθ ἕως Γάζης καὶ οἱ Καππάδοκες οἱ ἐξελθόντες ἐκ Καππαδοκίας ἐξέτριψαν αὐτοὺς καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἀντ᾽ αὐτῶν

24 νῦν οὖν ἀνάστητε καὶ ἀπάρατε καὶ παρέλθατε ὑμεῖς τὴν φάραγγα Αρνων ἰδοὺ παραδέδωκα εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου τὸν Σηων βασιλέα Εσεβων τὸν Αμορραῖον καὶ τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ ἐνάρχου κληρονομεῖν σύναπτε πρὸς αὐτὸν πόλεμον

25 ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ ἐνάρχου δοῦναι τὸν τρόμον σου καὶ τὸν φόβον σου ἐπὶ πρόσωπον πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν τῶν ὑποκάτω τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οἵτινες ἀκούσαντες τὸ ὄνομά σου ταραχθήσονται καὶ ὠδῖνας ἕξουσιν ἀπὸ προσώπου σου

26 καὶ ἀπέστειλα πρέσβεις ἐκ τῆς ἐρήμου Κεδαμωθ πρὸς Σηων βασιλέα Εσεβων λόγοις εἰρηνικοῖς λέγων

27 παρελεύσομαι διὰ τῆς γῆς σου ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ παρελεύσομαι οὐχὶ ἐκκλινῶ δεξιὰ οὐδὲ ἀριστερά

28 βρώματα ἀργυρίου ἀποδώσῃ μοι καὶ φάγομαι καὶ ὕδωρ ἀργυρίου ἀποδώσῃ μοι καὶ πίομαι πλὴν ὅτι παρελεύσομαι τοῖς ποσίν

29 καθὼς ἐποίησάν μοι οἱ υἱοὶ Ησαυ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Σηιρ καὶ οἱ Μωαβῖται οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Αροηρ ἕως παρέλθω τὸν Ιορδάνην εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν δίδωσιν ἡμῖν

30 καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν Σηων βασιλεὺς Εσεβων παρελθεῖν ἡμᾶς δι᾽ αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐσκλήρυνεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ καὶ κατίσχυσεν τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ ἵνα παραδοθῇ εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου ὡς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ

31 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἰδοὺ ἦργμαι παραδοῦναι πρὸ προσώπου σου τὸν Σηων βασιλέα Εσεβων τὸν Αμορραῖον καὶ τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ ἔναρξαι κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ

32 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Σηων βασιλεὺς Εσεβων εἰς συνάντησιν ἡμῖν αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ εἰς πόλεμον Ιασσα

33 καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτὸν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν πρὸ προσώπου ἡμῶν καὶ ἐπατάξαμεν αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ

34 καὶ ἐκρατήσαμεν πασῶν τῶν πόλεων αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ καὶ ἐξωλεθρεύσαμεν πᾶσαν πόλιν ἑξῆς καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν οὐ κατελίπομεν ζωγρείαν

35 πλὴν τὰ κτήνη ἐπρονομεύσαμεν καὶ τὰ σκῦλα τῶν πόλεων ἐλάβομεν

36 ἐξ Αροηρ ἥ ἐστιν παρὰ τὸ χεῖλος χειμάρρου Αρνων καὶ τὴν πόλιν τὴν οὖσαν ἐν τῇ φάραγγι καὶ ἕως ὄρους τοῦ Γαλααδ οὐκ ἐγενήθη πόλις ἥτις διέφυγεν ἡμᾶς τὰς πάσας παρέδωκεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ἡμῶν

37 πλὴν εἰς γῆν υἱῶν Αμμων οὐ προσήλθομεν πάντα τὰ συγκυροῦντα χειμάρρου Ιαβοκ καὶ τὰς πόλεις τὰς ἐν τῇ ὀρεινῇ καθότι ἐνετείλατο ἡμῖν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν

1 Profectique inde, venimus in solitudinem, quæ ducit ad mare Rubrum, sicut mihi dixerat Dominus: et circuivimus montem Seir longo tempore.

2 Dixitque Dominus ad me:

3 Sufficit vobis circuire montem istum: ite contra aquilonem:

4 et populo præcipe, dicens: Transibitis per terminos fratrum vestrorum filiorum Esau, qui habitant in Seir, et timebunt vos.

5 Videte ergo diligenter ne moveamini contra eos. Neque enim dabo vobis de terra eorum quantum potest unius pedis calcare vestigium, quia in possessionem Esau dedi montem Seir.

6 Cibos emetis ab eis pecunia, et comedetis: aquam emptam haurietis, et bibetis.

7 Dominus Deus tuus benedixit tibi in omni opere manuum tuarum: novit iter tuum, quomodo transieris solitudinem hanc magnam, per quadraginta annos habitans tecum Dominus Deus tuus, et nihil tibi defuit.

8 Cumque transissemus fratres nostros filios Esau, qui habitabant in Seir, per viam campestrem de Elath, et de Asiongaber, venimus ad iter quod ducit in desertum Moab.

9 Dixitque Dominus ad me: Non pugnes contra Moabitas, nec ineas adversus eos prælium: non enim dabo tibi quidquam de terra eorum, quia filiis Loth tradidi Ar in possessionem.

10 Emim primi fuerunt habitatores ejus, populus magnus, et validus, et tam excelsus ut de Enacim stirpe,

11 quasi gigantes crederentur, et essent similes filiorum Enacim. Denique Moabitæ appellant eos Emim.

12 In Seir autem prius habitaverunt Horrhæi: quibus expulsis atque deletis, habitaverunt filii Esau, sicut fecit Israël in terra possessionis suæ, quam dedit illi Dominus.

13 Surgentes ergo ut transiremus torrentem Zared, venimus ad eum.

14 Tempus autem, quo ambulavimus de Cadesbarne usque ad transitum torrentis Zared, triginta et octo annorum fuit: donec consumeretur omnis generatio hominum bellatorum de castris, sicut juraverat Dominus:

15 cujus manus fuit adversum eos, ut interirent de castrorum medio.

16 Postquam autem universi ceciderunt pugnatores,

17 locutus est Dominus ad me, dicens:

18 Tu transibis hodie terminos Moab, urbem nomine Ar:

19 et accedens in vicina filiorum Ammon, cave ne pugnes contra eos, nec movearis ad prælium: non enim dabo tibi de terra filiorum Ammon, quia filiis Loth dedi eam in possessionem.

20 Terra gigantum reputata est: et in ipsa olim habitaverunt gigantes, quos Ammonitæ vocant Zomzommim,

21 populus magnus, et multus, et proceræ longitudinis, sicut Enacim, quos delevit Dominus a facie eorum: et fecit illos habitare pro eis,

22 sicut fecerat filiis Esau, qui habitant in Seir, delens Horrhæos, et terram eorum illis tradens, quam possident usque in præsens.

23 Hevæos quoque, qui habitabant in Haserim usque Gazan, Cappadoces expulerunt: qui egressi de Cappadocia deleverunt eos, et habitaverunt pro illis.

24 Surgite, et transite torrentem Arnon: ecce tradidi in manu tua Sehon regem Hesebon Amorrhæum, et terram ejus incipe possidere, et committe adversus eum prælium.

25 Hodie incipiam mittere terrorem atque formidinem tuam in populos, qui habitant sub omni cælo: ut audito nomine tuo paveant, et in morem parturientium contremiscant, et dolore teneantur.

26 Misi ergo nuntios de solitudine Cademoth ad Sehon regem Hesebon verbis pacificis, dicens:

27 Transibimus per terram tuam: publica gradiemur via; non declinabimus neque ad dexteram, neque ad sinistram.

28 Alimenta pretio vende nobis, ut vescamur: aquam pecunia tribue, et sic bibemus. Tantum est ut nobis concedas transitum,

29 sicut fecerunt filii Esau, qui habitant in Seir, et Moabitæ, qui morantur in Ar: donec veniamus ad Jordanem, et transeamus ad terram, quam Dominus Deus noster daturus est nobis.

30 Noluitque Sehon rex Hesebon dare nobis transitum: quia induraverat Dominus Deus tuus spiritum ejus, et obfirmaverat cor illius, ut traderetur in manus tuas, sicut nunc vides.

31 Dixitque Dominus ad me: Ecce cœpi tibi tradere Sehon, et terram ejus: incipe possidere eam.

32 Egressusque est Sehon obviam nobis cum omni populo suo ad prælium in Jasa.

33 Et tradidit eum Dominus Deus noster nobis: percussimusque eum cum filiis suis et omni populo suo.

34 Cunctasque urbes in tempore illo cepimus, interfectis habitatoribus earum, viris ac mulieribus et parvulis: non reliquimus in eis quidquam,

35 absque jumentis, quæ in partem venere prædantium: et spoliis urbium, quas cepimus

36 ab Aroër, quæ est super ripam torrentis Arnon, oppido quod in valle situm est, usque Galaad. Non fuit vicus et civitas, quæ nostras effugeret manus: omnes tradidit Dominus Deus noster nobis,

37 absque terra filiorum Ammon, ad quam non accessimus: et cunctis quæ adjacent torrenti Jeboc, et urbibus montanis, universisque locis, a quibus nos prohibuit Dominus Deus noster.
