Deuteronomy 2


2:1 Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by
 the way of the Red sea, as the LORD spoke to me: and we
 compassed mount Seir many days.
2:2 And the LORD spoke to me, saying,
2:3 Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you
 northward.
2:4 And command thou the people, saying, Ye [are] to pass
 through the border of your brethren the children of Esau, who
 dwell in Seir; and they will be afraid of you: therefore take
 ye good heed to yourselves:
2:5 Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land,
 no, not so much as a foot-breadth; because I have given mount
 Seir to Esau [for] a possession.
2:6 Ye shall buy food of them for money, that ye may eat; and ye
 shall also buy water of them for money, that ye may drink.
2:7 For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of
 thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness:
 these forty years the LORD thy God [hath been] with thee: thou
 hast lacked nothing.
2:8 And when we passed by from our brethren the children of
 Esau, who dwelt in Seir, through the way of the plain from
 Elath, and from Ezion-gaber, we turned and passed by the way of
 the wilderness of Moab.
2:9 And the LORD said to me, Distress not the Moabites, neither
 contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their
 land [for] a possession; because I have given Ar to the
 children of Lot [for] a possession.
2:10 (The Emims dwelt in it in times past, a people great, and
 many, and tall as the Anakims;
2:11 Who also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the
 Moabites call them Emims.
2:12 The Horims also dwelt formerly in Seir, but the children of
 Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before
 them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel did to the land of
 his possession, which the LORD gave to them.)
2:13 Now rise, [said I], and pass over the brook Zered: and we
 went over the brook Zered.
2:14 And the space in which we came from Kadesh-barnea, until we
 passed the brook Zered, [was] thirty and eight years; until all
 the generation of the men of war were wasted from among the
 host, as the LORD swore to them.
2:15 For indeed the hand of the LORD was against them, to
 destroy them from among the host, until they were consumed.
2:16 So it came to pass, when all the men of war were consumed
 and dead from among the people,
2:17 That the LORD spoke to me, saying,
2:18 Thou art to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this
 day:
2:19 And [when] thou comest nigh over against the children of
 Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not
 give thee of the land of the children of Ammon [any]
 possession; because I have given it to the children of Lot
 [for] a possession.
2:20 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt in
 it in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;
2:21 A people great, and many, and tall as the Anakims; but the
 LORD destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and
 dwelt in their stead:
2:22 As he did to the children of Esau, who dwelt in Seir, when
 he destroyed the Horims from before them; and they succeeded
 them, and dwelt in their stead even to this day:
2:23 And the Avims who dwelt in Hazerim [even] to Azzah, the
 Caphtorims, who came forth from Caphtor, destroyed them, and
 dwelt in their stead.)
2:24 Arise ye, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon:
 behold, I have given into thy hand Sihon the Amorite, king of
 Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess [it], and contend with
 him in battle.
2:25 This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear
 of thee upon the nations [that are] under the whole heaven, who
 shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish
 because of thee.
2:26 And I sent messengers from the wilderness of Kedemoth to
 Sihon king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying,
2:27 Let me pass through thy land: I will go along by the
 highway, I will neither turn to the right hand nor to the left.
2:28 Thou shalt sell me food for money, that I may eat; and give
 me water for money, that I may drink: only I will pass through
 on my feet;
2:29 (As the children of Esau who dwell in Seir, and the
 Moabites who dwell in Ar, did to me;) until I shall pass over
 Jordan into the land which the LORD our God giveth us.
2:30 But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for
 the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart
 obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as
 [appeareth] this day.
2:31 And the LORD said to me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon
 and his land before thee: begin to possess, that thou mayest
 inherit his land.
2:32 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to
 fight at Jahaz.
2:33 And the LORD our God delivered him before us; and we smote
 him, and his sons, and all his people.
2:34 And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly
 destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones of every
 city, we left none to remain.
2:35 Only the cattle we took for a prey to ourselves, and the
 spoil of the cities which we took.
2:36 From Aroer, which [is] by the brink of the river of Arnon,
 and [from] the city that [is] by the river, even to Gilead,
 there was not one city too strong for us: the LORD our God
 delivered all to us:
2:37 Only to the land of the children of Ammon thou camest not,
 [nor] to any place of the river Jabbok, nor to the cities on
 the mountains, nor to whatever the LORD our God forbad us.
