Numbers 21 ©
Israel with some loss destroy the Canaanites at Hormah. The people murmuring are plagued with fiery serpents. Repenting they are healed by a brasen serpent. Sundry journeys of the Israelites, with their song on finding water. Sihon is overcome, and Og.

And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the 11villages thereof.
For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his hand, even unto Arnon.
