33And Moses gave unto them, even to the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben, and unto the half-tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, the land, according to the cities thereof with their borders, even the cities of the land round about. 34And the children of Gad built Dibon, and Ataroth, and Aroer; 35and Atrothshophan, and Jazer, and Jogbehah; 36and Beth-nimrah, and Beth-haran; fortified cities, and folds for sheep. 37And the children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Kiriathaim; 38and Nebo, and Baal-meon—their names being changed—and Sibmah; and gave their names unto the cities which they builded. 39And the children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead, and took it, and dispossessed the Amorites that were therein. 40And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasseh; and he dwelt therein. 41And Jair the son of Manasseh went and took the villages thereof, and called them [1]Havvoth-jair. 42And Nobah went and took Kenath, and the villages thereof, and called it Nobah, after his own name.
