Deuteronomy 3:3-6

Context
3:3 So the Lord our God did indeed give over to us King Og of Bashan and his whole army and we struck them down until not a single survivor was left. 1  3:4 We captured all his cities at that time – there was not a town we did not take from them – sixty cities, all the region of Argob, 2  the dominion of Og in Bashan. 3:5 All of these cities were fortified by high walls, gates, and locking bars; 3  in addition there were a great many open villages. 4  3:6 We put all of these under divine judgment 5  just as we had done to King Sihon of Heshbon – every occupied city, 6  including women and children.

1 tn Heb “was left to him.” The final phrase “to him” is redundant in English and has been left untranslated.

2 sn Argob. This is a subdistrict of Bashan, perhaps north of the Yarmuk River. See Y. Aharoni, Land of the Bible, 314.

3 tn Or “high walls and barred gates” (NLT); Heb “high walls, gates, and bars.” Since “bars” could be understood to mean “saloons,” the qualifying adjective “locking” has been supplied in the translation.

4 tn The Hebrew term פְּרָזִי (pÿraziy) refers to rural areas, at the most “unwalled villages” (KJV, NASB “unwalled towns”).

5 tn Heb “we put them under the ban” (נַחֲרֵם, nakharem). See note at 2:34.

sn The divine curse. See note on this phrase in Deut 2:34.

6 tn Heb “city of men.”
