Jehovah gave King of Bashan (Giant)

Proverbs 21:1

1 ¶ As streams of waters, the king’s heart is in the hand of Jehovah; He extends it wherever He desires.


The land of Canaan was promised by God to the Israelites and was originally occupied predominantly by Ham’s son Canaan (Noah’s grandson)and his offspring who were cursed by God because of his father, Ham’s sin.The land was sometimes referred to as the land of the Giants.

They were known for worshipping foreign deities and their religion and culture was extremely immoral…they are sometimes noted as carrying the gene from the nephilim (Giants) that were on the earth and after the sons of God mated with the daughters of men before the flood in Genesis 6.

The possible carrier of those genes after the flood was Ham’s wife. Ham was evil so it is likely he took a wife from that evil culture. Also, Nimrod was a descendant from Ham through Cush. It appears Nimrod also was a Giant.

Deuteronomy 3:1-8

1 And we turned up and went by the way of Bashan, and Og the king of Bashan came out to meet us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.

2 And Jehovah said to me, Do not fear him, for I have given him into your hand, and all his people, and his land. And you shall do to him as you have done to Sihon the king of the Amorites who lived in Heshbon.

3 And Jehovah our God also gave Og the king of Bashan into our hands, and all his people. And we struck him until not one survivor was left to him.

4 And we captured all his cities at that time, there not being a city which we did not take from them, sixty cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

5 All these cities were fortified with high walls, gates and double-leaved doors, be- sides a great many of the unwalled towns.

6 And we completely destroyed them, as we had done to Sihon the king of Heshbon, destroying every city, the men, the women and the little ones.

7 And we plundered for ourselves all the livestock, and the plunder of the cities.

8 And we took the land that was beyond the Jordan from the valley of Arnon to Mount Hermon, out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites.

9 The Sidonians call Hermon Sirion, and the Amorites call it Senir;

10 all the cities of the tableland, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, to Salecah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

11 For only Og the king of Bashan remained of the rest of the giants. Behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the sons of Ammon, nine cubits long and four cubits broad, by the cubit of a man?


Back in Deuteronomy 2:25 Jehovah tells the Israelites…..

Deuteronomy 2:25

This day I will begin to put your dread and your fear on the face of the peoples under all the heavens, who will hear your fame, and will tremble and writhe because of you.
