all the kingdom of Og in Bashan who reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei (he was left of the remnant of the Rephaim); for Moses struck them down and dispossessed them. Bible see other translations

“dispossessed.” This is the same word as “drive them out” (Josh. 13:6, 13), but here, because Moses struck down the people, it has a slightly different emphasis and thus means he dispossessed them; he took over their land.
