Joshua 12:1-2

Context

12:1 Now these are the kings of the land whom the Israelites defeated and drove from their land 1  on the east side of the Jordan, 2  from the Arnon Valley to Mount Hermon, including all the eastern Arabah:

12:2 King Sihon of the Amorites who lived 3  in Heshbon and ruled from Aroer (on the edge of the Arnon Valley) – including the city in the middle of the valley 4  and half of Gilead – all the way to the Jabbok Valley bordering Ammonite territory.

1 tn Heb “and took possession of their land.”

2 tn Heb “beyond the Jordan, toward the rising of the sun.”

3 tn Or perhaps, “reigned.”

4 tc The MT reads here, “and the middle of the valley,” but the reading “the city in the middle of valley” can be reconstructed on the basis of Josh 13:9, 16.
