<< Psalms 136:21 >>



  • Psalms 78:55
    He drove out nations before them. He apportioned their inheritance by lot and settled the tribes of Israel in their tents.
  • Psalms 135:12
    He gave their land as an inheritance, an inheritance to his people Israel.
  • Joshua 13:1-21
    Joshua was now old, advanced in age, and the LORD said to him,“ You have become old, advanced in age, but a great deal of the land remains to be possessed.This is the land that remains: All the districts of the Philistines and the Geshurites:from the Shihor east of Egypt to the border of Ekron on the north( considered to be Canaanite territory)— the five Philistine rulers of Gaza, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gath, and Ekron, as well as the Avvitesin the south; all the land of the Canaanites, from Arah of the Sidonians to Aphek and as far as the border of the Amorites;the land of the Gebalites; and all Lebanon east from Baal-gad below Mount Hermon to the entrance of Hamath—all the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth-maim, all the Sidonians. I will drive them out before the Israelites, only distribute the land as an inheritance for Israel, as I have commanded you.Therefore, divide this land as an inheritance to the nine tribes and half the tribe of Manasseh.”With the other half of the tribe of Manasseh, the Reubenites and Gadites had received the inheritance Moses gave them beyond the Jordan to the east, just as Moses the LORD’s servant had given them:From Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Valley, along with the city in the middle of the valley, all the Medeba plateau as far as Dibon,and all the cities of King Sihon of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, to the border of the Ammonites;also Gilead and the territory of the Geshurites and Maacathites, all Mount Hermon, and all Bashan to Salecah—the whole kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei; he was one of the remaining Rephaim. Moses struck them down and drove them out,but the Israelites did not drive out the Geshurites and Maacathites. So Geshur and Maacath still live in Israel today.He did not, however, give any inheritance to the tribe of Levi. This was their inheritance, just as he had promised: the food offerings made to the LORD, the God of Israel.To the tribe of Reuben’s descendants by their clans, Moses gavethis as their territory: From Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Valley, along with the city in the middle of the valley, the whole plateau as far as Medeba,with Heshbon and all its cities on the plateau— Dibon, Bamoth-baal, Beth-baal-meon,Jahaz, Kedemoth, Mephaath,Kiriathaim, Sibmah, Zereth-shahar on the hill in the valley,Beth-peor, the slopes of Pisgah, and Beth-jeshimoth—all the cities of the plateau, and all the kingdom of King Sihon of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon. Moses had killed him and the chiefs of Midian— Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba— the princes of Sihon who lived in the land.
  • Deuteronomy 3:12-17
    “ At that time we took possession of this land. I gave to the Reubenites and Gadites the area extending from Aroer by the Arnon Valley, and half the hill country of Gilead along with its cities.I gave to half the tribe of Manasseh the rest of Gilead and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og. The entire region of Argob, the whole territory of Bashan, used to be called the land of the Rephaim.Jair, a descendant of Manasseh, took over the entire region of Argob as far as the border of the Geshurites and Maacathites. He called Bashan by his own name, Jair’s Villages, as it is today.I gave Gilead to Machir,and I gave to the Reubenites and Gadites the area extending from Gilead to the Arnon Valley( the middle of the valley was the border) and up to the Jabbok River, the border of the Ammonites.The Arabah and Jordan are also borders from Chinnereth as far as the Sea of the Arabah, the Dead Sea, under the slopes of Pisgah on the east.
  • Joshua 12:1-7
    The Israelites struck down the following kings of the land and took possession of their land beyond the Jordan to the east and from the Arnon River to Mount Hermon, including all the Arabah eastward:King Sihon of the Amorites lived in Heshbon. He ruled from Aroer on the rim of the Arnon River, along the middle of the valley, and half of Gilead up to the Jabbok River( the border of the Ammonites),the Arabah east of the Sea of Chinnereth to the Sea of Arabah( that is, the Dead Sea), eastward through Beth-jeshimoth and southward below the slopes of Pisgah.King Og of Bashan, of the remnant of the Rephaim, lived in Ashtaroth and Edrei.He ruled over Mount Hermon, Salecah, all Bashan up to the Geshurite and Maacathite border, and half of Gilead to the border of King Sihon of Heshbon.Moses the LORD’s servant and the Israelites struck them down. And Moses the LORD’s servant gave their land as an inheritance to the Reubenites, Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh.Joshua and the Israelites struck down the following kings of the land beyond the Jordan to the west, from Baal-gad in the Valley of Lebanon to Mount Halak, which ascends toward Seir( Joshua gave their land as an inheritance to the tribes of Israel according to their allotments:
  • Nehemiah 9:22-24
    You gave them kingdoms and peoples and established boundaries for them. They took possession of the land of King Sihon of Heshbon and of the land of King Og of Bashan.You multiplied their descendants like the stars of the sky and brought them to the land you told their ancestors to go in and possess.So their descendants went in and possessed the land: You subdued the Canaanites who inhabited the land before them and handed their kings and the surrounding peoples over to them, to do as they pleased with them.
  • Numbers 32:33-42
    So Moses gave them— the Gadites, Reubenites, and half the tribe of Manasseh son of Joseph— the kingdom of King Sihon of the Amorites and the kingdom of King Og of Bashan, the land including its cities with the territories surrounding them.The Gadites rebuilt Dibon, Ataroth, Aroer,Atroth-shophan, Jazer, Jogbehah,Beth-nimrah, and Beth-haran as fortified cities, and built sheep pens.The Reubenites rebuilt Heshbon, Elealeh, Kiriathaim,as well as Nebo and Baal-meon( whose names were changed), and Sibmah. They gave names to the cities they rebuilt.The descendants of Machir son of Manasseh went to Gilead, captured it, and drove out the Amorites who were there.So Moses gave Gilead to the clan of Machir son of Manasseh, and they settled in it.Jair, a descendant of Manasseh, went and captured their villages, which he renamed Jair’s Villages.Nobah went and captured Kenath with its surrounding villages and called it Nobah after his own name.
  • Psalms 105:44
    He gave them the lands of the nations, and they inherited what other peoples had worked for.
  • Psalms 44:2-3
    In order to plant them, you displaced the nations by your hand; in order to settle them, you brought disaster on the peoples.For they did not take the land by their sword— their arm did not bring them victory— but by your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, because you were favorable toward them.
