and said to him, "Thus says Jephthah: Israel did not take away the land of Moab or the land of the Ammonites,
but when they came up from Egypt, Israel went through the wilderness to the Red Sea and came to Kadesh.
Israel then sent messengers to the king of Edom, saying, `Let us pass, we pray, through your land'; but the king of Edom would not listen. And they sent also to the king of Moab, but he would not consent. So Israel remained at Kadesh.
Then they journeyed through the wilderness, and went around the land of Edom and the land of Moab, and arrived on the east side of the land of Moab, and camped on the other side of the Arnon; but they did not enter the territory of Moab, for the Arnon was the boundary of Moab.
