Joshua 13:8-11

Context
Tribal Lands East of the Jordan

13:8 The other half of Manasseh, 1  Reuben, and Gad received their allotted tribal lands beyond the Jordan, 2  just as Moses, the Lord’s servant, had assigned them. 13:9 Their territory started 3  from Aroer (on the edge of the Arnon Valley), included the city in the middle of the valley, the whole plain of Medeba as far as Dibon, 13:10 and all the cities of King Sihon of the Amorites who ruled in Heshbon, and ended at the Ammonite border. 13:11 Their territory also included 4  Gilead, Geshurite and Maacathite territory, all Mount Hermon, and all Bashan to Salecah –

1 tn The MT reads “with him,” which is problematic, since the reference would be to the other half of the tribe of Manasseh (not the half mentioned in v. 7).

2 tn Heb “received their inheritance, which Moses had assigned to them beyond the Jordan.”

3 tn The words “their territory started” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

4 tn The words “their territory also included” are supplied in the translation for clarification.
