(Read Deuteronomy 2 Part 1 First)

29 The descendants of Esau at Mount Seir allowed us to go through their country, and so did the Moabites, who live in Ar. Let us pass through until we cross the Jordan into the land the LORD our God has given us.'

30 But King Sihon refused to allow you to pass through, because the LORD your God made Sihon stubborn and defiant so he could help you defeat them, as he has now done.

31 "Then the LORD said to me, `Look, I have begun to hand King Sihon and his land over to you. Begin now to conquer and occupy his land.'

32 Then King Sihon declared war on us and mobilized his forces at Jahaz.

33 But the LORD our God handed him over to us, and we crushed him, his sons, and all his people.

34 We conquered all his towns and completely destroyed* everyone--men, women, and children. Not a single person was spared.1

35 We took all the livestock as plunder for ourselves, along with anything of value from the towns we ransacked.

36 "The LORD our God helped us conquer Aroer on the edge of the Arnon Gorge, the town in the gorge, and the whole area as far as Gilead. No town had walls too strong for us.

37 However, we stayed away from the Ammonites along the Jabbok River and the towns in the hill country--all the places the LORD our God had commanded us to leave alone.
