This is the land we brought under our control at that time: The territory extending from Aroer 1 by the Wadi Arnon and half the Gilead hill country with its cities I gave to the Reubenites and Gadites. 2

Then Moses ascended from the deserts of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the summit of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. 1 The Lord showed him the whole land – Gilead to Dan,

Half of Gilead, Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities in the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were assigned to the descendants of Makir son of Manasseh, to half the descendants of Makir by their clans.

Some of the Hebrews crossed over the Jordan River 1 to the land of Gad and Gilead. But Saul stayed at Gilgal; the entire army that was with him was terrified.
He appointed him king over Gilead, the Geshurites, 1 Jezreel, Ephraim, Benjamin, and all Israel.
Geber son of Uri was in charge of the land of Gilead (the territory which had once belonged to King Sihon of the Amorites and to King Og of Bashan). He was sole governor of the area.
(Geshur and Aram captured the towns of Jair, 1 along with Kenath and its sixty surrounding towns.) All these were descendants of Makir, the father of Gilead.
