“You gave them kingdoms and peoples.
You allotted to them every corner.
They took possession of the land of King Sihon of Heshbon.
They took possession of the land of King Og of Bashan.
You multiplied their descendants like the stars of heaven.
You brought them into the land
That you had told their ancestors to enter and possess.
The descendants went in and possessed the land.
You subdued before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites.
You gave them into their hands,
With their kings and the peoples of the land.
Thus they might do with them as they pleased.
They captured fortified cities and a rich land.
They took possession of houses filled with all sorts of goods.
They took possession of hewn cisterns, vineyards, olive orchards
And fruit trees in abundance.
They were filled.
They became fat.
They delighted themselves in your great goodness.”
Our ancestors got to the Promised Land. They took possession of the kingdoms of Heshbon and Bashan on the east side of the Jordan. Their descendents became as numerous as the stars. They took over the land and the people inhabited by the Canaanites. They captured the fortified cities and the rich land. They took possession of the cisterns, the vineyards, and the olive trees already there. They ate and became fat. They delighted themselves with the great goodness that they had received.
