Num 21:4 Deut 1:2 Deut 1:40 Num 14:25 Judg 11:18
2 Yahweh then said to me,
3 "You have gone far enough round this mountain; now turn north.
Deut 1:6 Deut 2:14 Deut 2:7
4 And give the people this order: You are about to pass through the territory of your kinsmen, the sons of Esau who live in Seir. They are afraid of you, and you will be well protected.
Num 20:14-21 Deut 23:7 Exod 15:15 Col 4:5 Eph 5:15 Luke 12:15 Matt 5:16
5 Do not provoke them, for I shall give you none of their land, no, not so much as a foot's length of it. I have given the highlands of Seir to Esau as his domain.
Gen 36:8 Josh 24:4 2Chr 20:10-12 Acts 7:5 Acts 17:26 Dan 4:25 Dan 4:32

9 Yahweh then said to me, "Do not attack Moab, do not provoke him to fight, for I shall give you none of his land, since I have given Ar to the children of Lot as their domain."

10 (At one time the Emim lived there, a great and numerous people, tall as the Anakim;
Gen 14:5 Deut 2:11 Num 13:22
11 and, like the Anakim, they were considered to be Rephaim, though the Moabites call them Emim.
Deut 1:28 Deut 9:2 Gen 14:5 Num 13:22 Num 13:28 Num 13:33
12 The Horites, too, lived in Seir at one time; these, however, were dispossessed and exterminated by the children of Esau who settled there in place of them, just as Israel has done in the country given to it by Yahweh as a heritage.)

13 "On your way, then! Cross the Wadi Zered!" 'And so we crossed the Wadi Zered.
Num 21:12 Num 13:23
14 From Kadesh-Barnea to the crossing of the Wadi Zered our wanderings had taken thirty-eight years; as a result of which, the entire generation of those of age to bear arms had been eliminated, as Yahweh had sworn to them.
Deut 1:34-35 Ezek 20:15 Num 26:64-65 Ps 95:11 Deut 1:2 Deut 1:19 Num 13:26
15 Yahweh's hand had been against them, to eliminate them completely from the camp.
Ps 106:26 1Cor 10:5 1Sam 5:6 1Sam 5:9 1Sam 5:11 1Sam 7:13 Isa 66:14
16 'When death had carried off from the people those of age to bear arms, to the last man,
17 Yahweh said this to me,
18 "You are now crossing Ar, the country of Moab,
Isa 15:1 Num 21:15 Num 21:23
19 and soon you will encounter the children of Ammon. Do not attack them, do not provoke them, for I shall give you none of the land belonging to the children of Ammon as your domain. I have given it to the children of Lot as theirs."
Deut 2:9 2Chr 20:10 Deut 2:5 Gen 19:36-38 Judg 11:13-27
20 (This used also to be considered as Rephaim territory; at one time the Rephaim lived there, though the Ammonites call them Zamzummim,
21 a great and numerous people, and tall like the Anakim. Yahweh exterminated them for the Ammonites who dispossessed them and settled there in place of them,
Deut 1:28 Deut 2:10-11 Deut 2:22 Deut 3:11 Hab 1:10-11 Jer 27:7-8 Judg 11:24
22 just as he had done for the children of Esau who live in Seir, so that they dispossessed the Horites and settled there instead of them and are still there now.
Gen 36:8 Deut 2:12 Gen 14:6 Gen 36:20-30 1Chr 1:38-42
23 It was the same with the Avvites who occupied encampments as far as Gaza: the Caphtorim, coming from Caphtor, exterminated them and settled there instead.)

Judg 11:19 Deut 2:6 Num 21:21-23
28 I shall eat and pay for the food you choose to sell me, and I shall drink and pay for the water you let me have. I only want to march through,
29 just as the children of Esau who live in Seir permitted, as well as the Moabites who live in Ar, until I cross the Jordan into the country that Yahweh our God is giving us."

32 Sihon marched out against us, he and all his people, to give battle at Jahaz.

Deut 7:2 1Sam 15:3 Deut 3:6 1Sam 15:8-9 Deut 7:26 Deut 20:16-18 Josh 7:11
35 except the livestock which we took as our booty, and the spoils of the captured towns.
Deut 20:14 Josh 8:27 Num 31:9-11
36 From Aroer on the edge of the Arnon valley and from the town down in the valley, as far as Gilead, not one town was beyond our reach; Yahweh our God delivered them all to us.
Josh 13:9 Deut 3:12 Deut 4:48 Ps 44:3 Isa 17:2 Isa 41:15-16 Jer 48:19
