You have not abandoned your brothers these many days to this day, but you have kept the requirement of the commandment of Yahweh your God. Bible

“these many days to this day.” This does not mean the men of the Transjordan tribes never went home to see their families, but they did what it took to help the other tribes of Israel conquer thier territory.

“kept the requirement.” The literal is more like, “kept the keeping,” or “guarded the guarding,” which is idiomatic for keeping the requirement of the commandment of God.
