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.
"[The LORD also said,] 'Get up, move out, and cross the Arnon Valley. See, I have handed Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land over to you. Begin to take possession [of it]; engage him in battle.
But the LORD said to me, 'Do not fear him, for I have handed him over to you, along with his whole army and his land. Do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived in Heshbon.'
We completely destroyed them, as we had done to Sihon king of Heshbon, destroying the men, women, and children of every city.
Sihon king of the Amorites lived in Heshbon. He ruled [over the territory] from Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Valley, along the middle of the valley, and half of Gilead up to the Jabbok River (the border of the Ammonites),
He ruled over Mount Hermon, Salecah, all Bashan up to the Geshurite and Maacathite border, and half of Gilead to the border of Sihon, king of Heshbon.
and all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, to the border of the Ammonites;
There was no city that was inaccessible to us, from Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Valley, along with the city in the valley, even as far as Gilead. The LORD our God gave everything to us.
Then the land was peaceful 40 years, and Othniel son of Kenaz died.
Moab became subject to Israel that day, and the land was peaceful 80 years.
LORD, may all your enemies perish as Sisera did. But may those who love Him be like the rising of the sun in its strength. And the land was peaceful 40 years.
So Midian was subdued before the Israelites, and they were no longer a threat. The land was peaceful 40 years during the days of Gideon.
When Abimelech had ruled over Israel three years,
Tola judged Israel 23 years, and when he died, was buried in Shamir.
After him came Jair the Gileadite, who judged Israel 22 years.
They shattered and crushed the Israelites that year, and for 18 years [they did the same to] all the Israelites who were on the other side of the Jordan in the land of the Amorites in Gilead.
Joshua waged war with all these kings for a long time.
A long time after the LORD had given Israel rest from all the enemies around them, Joshua was old, getting on in years.
