Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz.
But Sihon would not let Israel travel through his territory. Instead, he gathered his whole army and went out to confront Israel in the wilderness. When he came to Jahaz, he fought against Israel.
Israel struck him with the sword and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, [but only up] to the Ammonite border, because it was fortified.
Israel took all the cities and lived in all these Amorite cities, including Heshbon and all its villages.
Heshbon was the city of Sihon king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab and had taken control of all his land as far as the Arnon.
Therefore the poets say: Come to Heshbon, let it be rebuilt; let the city of Sihon be restored.
For fire came out of Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon. It consumed Ar of Moab, the lords of Arnon's heights.
Woe to you, Moab! You have been destroyed, people of Chemosh! He gave up his sons as refugees, and his daughters into captivity to Sihon the Amorite king.
We threw them down; Heshbon has been destroyed as far as Dibon. We caused desolation as far as Nophah, which reaches as far as Medeba.
but Sihon did not trust Israel. Instead, Sihon gathered all his people, camped at Jahaz, and fought with Israel.
Then the LORD God of Israel handed over Sihon and all his people to Israel, and they defeated them. So Israel took possession of the entire land of the Amorites who lived in that country.
They took possession of all the territory of the Amorites from the Arnon to the Jabbok and from the wilderness to the Jordan.
"The LORD God of Israel has now driven out the Amorites before His people Israel, but will you drive us out?
You gave them kingdoms and peoples and assigned them to be a boundary. They took possession of the land of Sihon king of Heshbon and of the land of Og king of Bashan.
I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.
Sihon king of the Amorites, Og king of Bashan, and all the kings of Canaan.
Sihon king of the Amorites His love is eternal.
