Numbers 32


1  Now the children1121 of Reuben7205 and the children1121 of Gad1410 had1961 a very3966 great6099 multitude7227 of cattle:4735 and when they saw7200 853 the land776 of Jazer,3270 and the land776 of Gilead,1568 that, behold,2009 the place4725 was a place4725 for cattle;4735

2  The children1121 of Gad1410 and the children1121 of Reuben7205 came935 and spoke559 unto413 Moses,4872 and to413 Eleazar499 the priest,3548 and unto413 the princes5387 of the congregation,5712 saying,559

3  Ataroth,5852 and Dibon,1769 and Jazer,3270 and Nimrah,5247 and Heshbon,2809 and Elealeh,500 and Shebam,7643 and Nebo,5015 and Beon,1194

4  Even the country776 which834 the LORD3068 smote5221 before6440 the congregation5712 of Israel,3478 is a land776 for cattle,4735 and thy servants5650 have cattle:4735

5  Wherefore, said559 they, if518 we have found4672 grace2580 in thy sight,5869 let 853 this2063 land776 be given5414 unto thy servants5650 for a possession,272 and bring us not over5674 408 853 Jordan.3383

6  And Moses4872 said559 unto the children1121 of Gad1410 and to the children1121 of Reuben,7205 Shall your brethren251 go935 to war,4421 and shall ye859 sit3427 here?6311

7  And wherefore4100 discourage5106 ye 853 the heart3820 of the children1121 of Israel3478 from going over4480 5674 into413 the land776 which834 the LORD3068 hath given5414 them?

8  Thus3541 did6213 your fathers,1 when I sent7971 them from Kadesh-barnea4480 6947 to see7200 853 the land.776

9  For when they went up5927 unto5704 the valley5158 of Eshcol,812 and saw7200 853 the land,776 they discouraged5106 853 the heart3820 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 that they should not1115 go935 into413 the land776 which834 the LORD3068 had given5414 them.

10  And the LORD's3068 anger639 was kindled2734 the same1931 time,3117 and he swore,7650 saying,559

11  Surely518 none of the men376 that came up5927 out of Egypt,4480 4714 from twenty6242 years8141 old4480 1121 and upward,4605 shall see7200 853 the land127 which834 I swore7650 unto Abraham,85 unto Isaac,3327 and unto Jacob;3290 because3588 they have not3808 wholly4390 followed310 me:

12  Save1115 Caleb3612 the son1121 of Jephunneh3312 the Kenezite,7074 and Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun:5126 for3588 they have wholly4390 followed310 the LORD.3068

13  And the LORD's3068 anger639 was kindled2734 against Israel,3478 and he made them wander5128 in the wilderness4057 forty705 years,8141 until5704 all3605 the generation,1755 that had done6213 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 was consumed.8552

14  And, behold,2009 ye are risen up6965 in your fathers' stead,8478 1 an increase8635 of sinful2400 men,376 to augment5595 5921 yet5750 the fierce2740 anger639 of the LORD3068 toward413 Israel.3478

15  For3588 if ye turn away7725 from after4480 310 him, he will yet5750 again3254 leave5117 them in the wilderness;4057 and ye shall destroy7843 all3605 this2088 people.5971

16  And they came near5066 unto413 him, and said,559 We will build1129 sheepfolds1488 6629 here6311 for our cattle,4735 and cities5892 for our little ones:2945

17  But we587 ourselves will go ready armed2502 2363 before6440 the children1121 of Israel,3478 until5704 834 518 we have brought935 them unto413 their place:4725 and our little ones2945 shall dwell3427 in the fenced4013 cities5892 because4480 6440 of the inhabitants3427 of the land.776

18  We will not3808 return7725 unto413 our houses,1004 until5704 the children1121 of Israel3478 have inherited5157 every man376 his inheritance.5159

19  For3588 we will not3808 inherit5157 with854 them on yonder side4480 5676 Jordan,3383 or forward;1973 because3588 our inheritance5159 is fallen935 to413 us on this side4480 5676 Jordan3383 eastward.4217

20  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 them, If518 ye will do6213 853 this2088 thing,1697 if518 ye will go armed2502 before6440 the LORD3068 to war,4421

21  And will go5674 all3605 of you armed2502 over 853 Jordan3383 before6440 the LORD,3068 until5704 he hath driven out3423 853 his enemies341 from before4480 6440 him,

22  And the land776 be subdued3533 before6440 the LORD:3068 then afterward310 ye shall return,7725 and be1961 guiltless5355 before the LORD,4480 3068 and before Israel;4480 3478 and this2063 land776 shall be1961 your possession272 before6440 the LORD.3068

23  But if518 ye will not3808 do6213 so,3651 behold,2009 ye have sinned2398 against the LORD:3068 and be sure3045 your sin2403 will find you out.4672 853

24  Build1129 you cities5892 for your little ones,2945 and folds1448 for your sheep;6792 and do6213 that which hath proceeded out3318 of your mouth.4480 6310

25  And the children1121 of Gad1410 and the children1121 of Reuben7205 spoke559 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559 Thy servants5650 will do6213 as834 my lord113 commandeth.6680

26  Our little ones,2945 our wives,802 our flocks,4735 and all3605 our cattle,929 shall be1961 there8033 in the cities5892 of Gilead:1568

27  But thy servants5650 will pass over,5674 every man3605 armed2502 for war,6635 before6440 the LORD3068 to battle,4421 as834 my lord113 saith.1696

28  So concerning them Moses4872 commanded6680 853 Eleazar499 the priest,3548 and Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun,5126 and the chief7218 fathers1 of the tribes4294 of the children1121 of Israel:3478

29  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 them, If518 the children1121 of Gad1410 and the children1121 of Reuben7205 will pass with you over5674 854 853 Jordan,3383 every man3605 armed2502 to battle,4421 before6440 the LORD,3068 and the land776 shall be subdued3533 before6440 you; then ye shall give5414 them 853 the land776 of Gilead1568 for a possession:272

30  But if518 they will not3808 pass over5674 with854 you armed,2502 they shall have possessions270 among8432 you in the land776 of Canaan.3667

31  And the children1121 of Gad1410 and the children1121 of Reuben7205 answered,6030 saying,559 853 As834 the LORD3068 hath said1696 unto413 thy servants,5650 so3651 will we do.6213

32  We5168 will pass over5674 armed2502 before6440 the LORD3068 into the land776 of Canaan,3667 that the possession272 of our inheritance5159 on this side4480 5676 Jordan3383 may be ours.

33  And Moses4872 gave5414 unto them, even to the children1121 of Gad,1410 and to the children1121 of Reuben,7205 and unto half2677 the tribe7626 of Manasseh4519 the son1121 of Joseph,3130 853 the kingdom4467 of Sihon5511 king4428 of the Amorites,567 and the kingdom4467 of Og5747 king4428 of Bashan,1316 the land,776 with the cities5892 thereof in the coasts,1367 even the cities5892 of the country776 round about.5439

34  And the children1121 of Gad1410 built1129 853 Dibon,1769 and Ataroth,5852 and Aroer,6177

35  And Atroth,5852 Shophan,5855 and Jaazer,3270 and Jogbehah,3011

36  And Beth-nimrah,1039 and Beth-haran,1028 fenced4013 cities:5892 and folds1448 for sheep.6629

37  And the children1121 of Reuben7205 built1129 853 Heshbon,2809 and Elealeh,500 and Kirjathaim,7156

38  And Nebo,5015 and Baal-meon,1186 (their names8034 being changed),5437 and853 Shibmah:7643 and gave other names7121 8034 853 8034 unto the cities5892 which834 they built.1129

39  And the children1121 of Machir4353 the son1121 of Manasseh4519 went1980 to Gilead,1568 and took3920 it, and dispossessed3423 853 the Amorite567 which834 was in it.

40  And Moses4872 gave5414 853 Gilead1568 unto Machir4353 the son1121 of Manasseh;4519 and he dwelt3427 therein.

41  And Jair2971 the son1121 of Manasseh4519 went1980 and took3920 853 the small towns2333 thereof, and called7121 them Havoth-jair.2334

42  And Nobah5025 went1980 and took3920 853 Kenath,7079 and the villages1323 thereof, and called7121 it Nobah,5025 after his own name.8034


1 καὶ κτήνη πλῆθος ἦν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ρουβην καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Γαδ πλῆθος σφόδρα καὶ εἶδον τὴν χώραν Ιαζηρ καὶ τὴν χώραν Γαλααδ καὶ ἦν ὁ τόπος τόπος κτήνεσιν

2 καὶ προσελθόντες οἱ υἱοὶ Ρουβην καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Γαδ εἶπαν πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ πρὸς Ελεαζαρ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς συναγωγῆς λέγοντες

3 Αταρωθ καὶ Δαιβων καὶ Ιαζηρ καὶ Ναμβρα καὶ Εσεβων καὶ Ελεαλη καὶ Σεβαμα καὶ Ναβαυ καὶ Βαιαν

4 τὴν γῆν ἣν παρέδωκεν κύριος ἐνώπιον τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ γῆ κτηνοτρόφος ἐστίν καὶ τοῖς παισίν σου κτήνη ὑπάρχει

5 καὶ ἔλεγον εἰ εὕρομεν χάριν ἐνώπιόν σου δοθήτω ἡ γῆ αὕτη τοῖς οἰκέταις σου ἐν κατασχέσει καὶ μὴ διαβιβάσῃς ἡμᾶς τὸν Ιορδάνην

6 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς τοῖς υἱοῖς Γαδ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Ρουβην οἱ ἀδελφοὶ ὑμῶν πορεύονται εἰς πόλεμον καὶ ὑμεῖς καθήσεσθε αὐτοῦ

7 καὶ ἵνα τί διαστρέφετε τὰς διανοίας τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ μὴ διαβῆναι εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν κύριος δίδωσιν αὐτοῖς

8 οὐχ οὕτως ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες ὑμῶν ὅτε ἀπέστειλα αὐτοὺς ἐκ Καδης Βαρνη κατανοῆσαι τὴν γῆν

9 καὶ ἀνέβησαν Φάραγγα βότρυος καὶ κατενόησαν τὴν γῆν καὶ ἀπέστησαν τὴν καρδίαν τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ὅπως μὴ εἰσέλθωσιν εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν ἔδωκεν κύριος αὐτοῖς

10 καὶ ὠργίσθη θυμῷ κύριος ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ὤμοσεν λέγων

11 εἰ ὄψονται οἱ ἄνθρωποι οὗτοι οἱ ἀναβάντες ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω οἱ ἐπιστάμενοι τὸ κακὸν καὶ τὸ ἀγαθὸν τὴν γῆν ἣν ὤμοσα τῷ Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ καὶ Ιακωβ οὐ γὰρ συνεπηκολούθησαν ὀπίσω μου

12 πλὴν Χαλεβ υἱὸς Ιεφοννη ὁ διακεχωρισμένος καὶ Ἰησοῦς ὁ τοῦ Ναυη ὅτι συνεπηκολούθησεν ὀπίσω κυρίου

13 καὶ ὠργίσθη θυμῷ κύριος ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ κατερρόμβευσεν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη ἕως ἐξανηλώθη πᾶσα ἡ γενεὰ οἱ ποιοῦντες τὰ πονηρὰ ἔναντι κυρίου

14 ἰδοὺ ἀνέστητε ἀντὶ τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν σύστρεμμα ἀνθρώπων ἁμαρτωλῶν προσθεῖναι ἔτι ἐπὶ τὸν θυμὸν τῆς ὀργῆς κυρίου ἐπὶ Ισραηλ

15 ὅτι ἀποστραφήσεσθε ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ προσθεῖναι ἔτι καταλιπεῖν αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ ἀνομήσετε εἰς ὅλην τὴν συναγωγὴν ταύτην

16 καὶ προσῆλθον αὐτῷ καὶ ἔλεγον ἐπαύλεις προβάτων οἰκοδομήσωμεν ὧδε τοῖς κτήνεσιν ἡμῶν καὶ πόλεις ταῖς ἀποσκευαῖς ἡμῶν

17 καὶ ἡμεῖς ἐνοπλισάμενοι προφυλακὴ πρότεροι τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἕως ἂν ἀγάγωμεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸν ἑαυτῶν τόπον καὶ κατοικήσει ἡ ἀποσκευὴ ἡμῶν ἐν πόλεσιν τετειχισμέναις διὰ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὴν γῆν

18 οὐ μὴ ἀποστραφῶμεν εἰς τὰς οἰκίας ἡμῶν ἕως ἂν καταμερισθῶσιν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἕκαστος εἰς τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ

19 καὶ οὐκέτι κληρονομήσωμεν ἐν αὐτοῖς ἀπὸ τοῦ πέραν τοῦ Ιορδάνου καὶ ἐπέκεινα ὅτι ἀπέχομεν τοὺς κλήρους ἡμῶν ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἐν ἀνατολαῖς

20 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς Μωυσῆς ἐὰν ποιήσητε κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ἐὰν ἐξοπλίσησθε ἔναντι κυρίου εἰς πόλεμον

21 καὶ παρελεύσεται ὑμῶν πᾶς ὁπλίτης τὸν Ιορδάνην ἔναντι κυρίου ἕως ἂν ἐκτριβῇ ὁ ἐχθρὸς αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ

22 καὶ κατακυριευθῇ ἡ γῆ ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἀποστραφήσεσθε καὶ ἔσεσθε ἀθῷοι ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ ἀπὸ Ισραηλ καὶ ἔσται ἡ γῆ αὕτη ὑμῖν ἐν κατασχέσει ἔναντι κυρίου

23 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ποιήσητε οὕτως ἁμαρτήσεσθε ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ γνώσεσθε τὴν ἁμαρτίαν ὑμῶν ὅταν ὑμᾶς καταλάβῃ τὰ κακά

24 καὶ οἰκοδομήσετε ὑμῖν αὐτοῖς πόλεις τῇ ἀποσκευῇ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐπαύλεις τοῖς κτήνεσιν ὑμῶν καὶ τὸ ἐκπορευόμενον ἐκ τοῦ στόματος ὑμῶν ποιήσετε

25 καὶ εἶπαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ρουβην καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Γαδ πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγοντες οἱ παῖδές σου ποιήσουσιν καθὰ ὁ κύριος ἡμῶν ἐντέλλεται

26 ἡ ἀποσκευὴ ἡμῶν καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες ἡμῶν καὶ πάντα τὰ κτήνη ἡμῶν ἔσονται ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν Γαλααδ

27 οἱ δὲ παῖδές σου παρελεύσονται πάντες ἐνωπλισμένοι καὶ ἐκτεταγμένοι ἔναντι κυρίου εἰς τὸν πόλεμον ὃν τρόπον ὁ κύριος λέγει

28 καὶ συνέστησεν αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς Ελεαζαρ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ Ἰησοῦν υἱὸν Ναυη καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας πατριῶν τῶν φυλῶν Ισραηλ

29 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς Μωυσῆς ἐὰν διαβῶσιν οἱ υἱοὶ Ρουβην καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Γαδ μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν τὸν Ιορδάνην πᾶς ἐνωπλισμένος εἰς πόλεμον ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ κατακυριεύσητε τῆς γῆς ἀπέναντι ὑμῶν καὶ δώσετε αὐτοῖς τὴν γῆν Γαλααδ ἐν κατασχέσει

30 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ διαβῶσιν ἐνωπλισμένοι μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν εἰς τὸν πόλεμον ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ διαβιβάσετε τὴν ἀποσκευὴν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ κτήνη αὐτῶν πρότερα ὑμῶν εἰς γῆν Χανααν καὶ συγκατακληρονομηθήσονταιϝξ ἐν ὑμῖν ἐν τῇ γῇ Χανααν

31 καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ρουβην καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Γαδ λέγοντες ὅσα ὁ κύριος λέγει τοῖς θεράπουσιν αὐτοῦ οὕτως ποιήσομεν

32 ἡμεῖς διαβησόμεθα ἐνωπλισμένοι ἔναντι κυρίου εἰς γῆν Χανααν καὶ δώσετε τὴν κατάσχεσιν ἡμῖν ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ Ιορδάνου

33 καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς τοῖς υἱοῖς Γαδ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Ρουβην καὶ τῷ ἡμίσει φυλῆς Μανασση υἱῶν Ιωσηφ τὴν βασιλείαν Σηων βασιλέως Αμορραίων καὶ τὴν βασιλείαν Ωγ βασιλέως τῆς Βασαν τὴν γῆν καὶ τὰς πόλεις σὺν τοῖς ὁρίοις αὐτῆς πόλεις τῆς γῆς κύκλῳ

34 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Γαδ τὴν Δαιβων καὶ τὴν Αταρωθ καὶ τὴν Αροηρ

35 καὶ τὴν Σωφαρ καὶ τὴν Ιαζηρ καὶ ὕψωσαν αὐτὰς

36 καὶ τὴν Ναμβραν καὶ τὴν Βαιθαραν πόλεις ὀχυρὰς καὶ ἐπαύλεις προβάτων

37 καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ρουβην ᾠκοδόμησαν τὴν Εσεβων καὶ Ελεαλη καὶ Καριαθαιμ

38 καὶ τὴν Βεελμεων περικεκυκλωμένας καὶ τὴν Σεβαμα καὶ ἐπωνόμασαν κατὰ τὰ ὀνόματα αὐτῶν τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν πόλεων ἃς ᾠκοδόμησαν

39 καὶ ἐπορεύθη υἱὸς Μαχιρ υἱοῦ Μανασση εἰς Γαλααδ καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτὴν καὶ ἀπώλεσεν τὸν Αμορραῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα ἐν αὐτῇ

40 καὶ ἔδωκεν Μωυσῆς τὴν Γαλααδ τῷ Μαχιρ υἱῷ Μανασση καὶ κατῴκησεν ἐκεῖ

41 καὶ Ιαϊρ ὁ τοῦ Μανασση ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἔλαβεν τὰς ἐπαύλεις αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν αὐτὰς ἐπαύλεις Ιαϊρ

42 καὶ Ναβαυ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἔλαβεν τὴν Κανααθ καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν αὐτὰς Ναβωθ ἐκ τοῦ ὀνόματος αὐτοῦ

1 Filii autem Ruben et Gad habebant pecora multa, et erat illis in jumentis infinita substantia. Cumque vidissent Jazer et Galaad aptas animalibus alendis terras,

2 venerunt ad Moysen, et ad Elezarum sacerdotem, et principes multitudinis, atque dixerunt:

3 Ataroth, et Dibon, et Jazer, et Nemra, Hesebon, et Eleale, et Saban, et Nebo, et Beon,

4 terra, quam percussit Dominus in conspectu filiorum Israël, regio uberrima est ad pastum animalium: et nos servi tui habemus jumenta plurima,

5 precamurque si invenimus gratiam coram te, ut des nobis famulis tuis eam in possessionem, nec facias nos transire Jordanem.

6 Quibus respondit Moyses: Numquid fratres vestri ibunt ad pugnam, et vos hic sedebitis?

7 cur subvertitis mentes filiorum Israël, ne transire audeant in locum, quem eis daturus est Dominus?

8 Nonne ita egerunt patres vestri, quando misi de Cadesbarne ad explorandam terram?

9 cumque venissent usque ad Vallem botri, lustrata omni regione, subverterunt cor filiorum Israël, ut non intrarent fines, quos eis Dominus dedit.

10 Qui iratus juravit, dicens:

11 Si videbunt homines isti, qui ascenderunt ex Ægypto a viginti annis et supra, terram, quam sub juramento pollicitus sum Abraham, Isaac, et Jacob: et noluerunt sequi me,

12 præter Caleb filium Jephone Cenezæum, et Josue filium Nun: isti impleverunt voluntatem meam.

13 Iratusque Dominus adversum Israël, circumduxit eum per desertum quadraginta annis, donec consumeretur universa generatio, quæ fecerat malum in conspectu ejus.

14 Et ecce, inquit, vos surrexistis pro patribus vestris, incrementa et alumni hominum peccatorum, ut augeretis furorem Domini contra Israël.

15 Quod si nolueritis sequi eum, in solitudine populum derelinquet, et vos causa eritis necis omnium.

16 At illi prope accedentes, dixerunt: Caulas ovium fabricabimus, et stabula jumentorum, parvulis quoque nostris urbes munitas:

17 nos autem ipsi armati et accincti pergemus ad prælium ante filios Israël, donec introducamus eos ad loca sua. Parvuli nostri, et quidquid habere possumus, erunt in urbibus muratis, propter habitatorum insidias.

18 Non revertemur in domos nostras, usque dum possideant filii Israël hæreditatem suam:

19 nec quidquam quæremus trans Jordanem, quia jam habemus nostram possessionem in orientali ejus plaga.

20 Quibus Moyses ait: Si facitis quod promittitis, expediti pergite coram Domino ad pugnam:

21 et omnis vir bellator armatus Jordanem transeat, donec subvertat Dominus inimicos suos,

22 et subjiciatur ei omnis terra: tunc eritis inculpabiles apud Dominum et apud Israël, et obtinebitis regiones, quas vultis, coram Domino.

23 Sin autem quod dicitis, non feceritis, nulli dubium est quin peccetis in Deum: et scitote quoniam peccatum vestrum apprehendet vos.

24 Ædificate ergo urbes parvulis vestris, et caulas, et stabula ovibus ac jumentis: et quod polliciti estis, implete.

25 Dixeruntque filii Gad et Ruben ad Moysen: Servi tui sumus: faciemus quod jubet dominus noster.

26 Parvulos nostros, et mulieres, et pecora, ac jumenta relinquemus in urbibus Galaad:

27 nos autem famuli tui omnes expediti pergemus ad bellum, sicut tu, domine, loqueris.

28 Præcepit ergo Moyses Eleazaro sacerdoti, et Josue filio Nun, et principibus familiarum per tribus Israël, et dixit ad eos:

29 Si transierint filii Gad et filii Ruben vobiscum Jordanem omnes armati ad bellum coram Domino, et vobis fuerit terra subjecta, date eis Galaad in possessionem.

30 Sin autem noluerint transire armati vobiscum in terram Chanaan, inter vos habitandi accipiant loca.

31 Responderuntque filii Gad et filii Ruben: Sicut locutus est Dominus servis suis, ita faciemus:

32 ipsi armati pergemus coram Domino in terram Chanaan, et possessionem jam suscepisse nos confitemur trans Jordanem.

33 Dedit itaque Moyses filiis Gad et Ruben, et dimidiæ tribui Manasse filii Joseph, regnum Sehon regis Amorrhæi, et regnum Og regis Basan, et terram eorum cum urbibus suis per circuitum.

34 Igitur exstruxerunt filii Gad, Dibon, et Ataroth, et Aroër,

35 et Etroth, et Sophan, et Jazer, et Jegbaa,

36 et Bethnemra, et Betharan, urbes munitas, et caulas pecoribus suis.

37 Filii vero Ruben ædificaverunt Hesebon, et Eleale, et Cariathaim,

38 et Nabo, et Baalmeon versis nominibus, Sabama quoque: imponentes vocabula urbibus, quas exstruxerunt.

39 Porro filii Machir filii Manasse, perrexerunt in Galaad, et vastaverunt eam interfecto Amorrhæo habitatore ejus.

40 Dedit ergo Moyses terram Galaad Machir filio Manasse, qui habitavit in ea.

41 Jair autem filius Manasse abiit, et occupavit vicos ejus, quos appellavit Havoth Jair, id est, Villas Jair.

42 Nobe quoque perrexit, et apprehendit Chanath cum viculis suis: vocavitque eam ex nomine suo Nobe.
