Then Israel sent messengers to Sihon, king of the Amorites, saying, (Numbers 21:21)

"Let me pass through your land. We will not turn off into field or vineyard; we will not drink water from wells. We will go by the king's highway until we have passed through your border." (Numbers 21:22)

But Sihon would not permit Israel to pass through his border. So Sihon gathered all his people and went out against Israel in the wilderness, and came to Jahaz and fought against Israel. (Numbers 21:23)

Then Israel struck him with the edge of the sword, and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as the sons of Ammon; for the border of the sons of Ammon was Jazer. (Numbers 21:24)

Israel took all these cities and Israel lived in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all her villages. (Numbers 21:25)

For Heshbon was the city of Sihon, king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab and had taken all his land out of his hand, as far as the Arnon. (Numbers 21:26)
