“Yahweh struck down many nations.
He killed mighty kings.
He killed Sihon,
King of the Amorites.
He killed Og,
King of Bashan.
He killed all in the kingdoms of Canaan.
He gave their land as a heritage.
This was a heritage to his people Israel.”
Yahweh was their protector as they entered the Promised Land. In order to take the Promised Land, they had to defeat a number of nations and countries. Yahweh helped them to kill their fellow humans. They and Yahweh killed many kings. The two most prominent as found in Numbers, chapter 21, was King Sihon of the Amorites and King Og of Bashan, on the borders of Canaan. They also killed the kings and people in Canaan as found in Joshua, chapters 5-12. Thus Yahweh gave Israel the land of Canaan as a heritage.
