Deuteronomy 3:5 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

They proceeded this way with the whole of the kingdom of Sihon. "From Aror on the edge of the Arnon valley (see at Numbers 32:34), and, in fact, from the city which is in the valley," i.e., Ar, or Areopolis (see at Numbers 21:15), - Aror being mentioned as the inclusive terminus a quo of the land that was taken, and the Moabitish capital Ar as the exclusive terminus, as in Joshua 13:9 and Joshua 13:16; "and as far as Gilead," which rises on the north, near the Jabbok (or Zerka, see at Deuteronomy 3:4), "there was no town too high for us," i.e., so strong that we could not take it.
