Joshua 13:8 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
13:8 Which Moses gave them - By my command, and therefore do not thou disturb them in their possessions, but proceed to divide the other possessions to the rest.
But we do not claim any of the land on the other side of the Jordan. We would rather live here on the east side and accept this as our grant of land."
"So we took the land of the two Amorite kings east of the Jordan River--all the way from the Arnon Gorge to Mount Hermon.
"When we took possession of this land, I gave to the tribes of Reuben and Gad the territory beyond Aroer along the Arnon Gorge, plus half of the hill country of Gilead with its towns.
These are the kings east of the Jordan River who had been killed by the Israelites and whose land was taken. Their territory extended from the Arnon Gorge to Mount Hermon and included all the land east of the Jordan Valley.
Include all this territory as Israel's possession when you divide this land among the nine tribes and the half-tribe of Manasseh."
Their territory extended from Aroer on the edge of the Arnon Gorge (including the town in the middle of the gorge) to the plain beyond Medeba, as far as Dibon.
