a very great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the
land of Jazer, and the land of b Gilead, that, behold,
the place [was] a place for cattle;
(a) Reuben came from Leah, and Gad from Zilpah her

32:15 For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet again

the m Amorites, and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan,
the land, with the cities thereof in the coasts, [even]
the cities of the country round about.
