Joshua 13:15-23

Land for Reuben's tribe

15 This is the part of the land that Moses gave to the clans of Reuben's tribe.

16 He gave them the land from Aroer by the edge of the Arnon valley and the town in the middle of the valley. 17 And he gave them all of the flat land past Medeba in Heshbon. It included Dibon, Bamoth Baal, Beth Baal Meon, 18 Jahaz and Kedemoth. It also included Mephaath, 19 Kiriathaim, Sibmah and Zereth Shahar. Zereth was on a hill in the middle of the valley. 20 Their land included Beth Peor, and the sides of Pisgah mountain, and Beth Jeshimoth town. 21 Moses gave them all the towns on the flat land. He gave them all the land of Sihon, king of the Amorites. Sihon had ruled from Hebron. But Moses had won the fight against him and the Midianite kings, Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur and Reba. These kings had ruled with Sihon and they lived in his land. 22 The Israelites had killed the prophet Balaam, son of Beor, when they had killed soldiers in the fight. He had used magic to help Balak fight against Israel. 23 The border of Reuben's land was the Jordan river.

13:22You can read about Balaam in Numbers 22.

Moses gave these towns and their villages to the tribe of Reuben, family by family.
