 2:35
 2:36
2:36 Thus, in [the entire territory] from Aro'er on the edge of the Arnon Gorge and the city in the valley itself, to the Gilead, there was no city that could defend itself against us, since God had placed everything at our disposal.
Me'Aro'er asher al-sfat-nachal Arnon veha'ir asher banachal ve'ad-haGil'ad lo hayetah kiryah asher sagvah mimenu et-hakol natan Adonay Eloheynu lefaneynu.



Commentary:

Aro'er
  An important city in Ar, the Moabite territory (Deuteronomy 2:9). It is just north of the Arnon, some 13 miles east of the Dead Sea.

Gilead
  To the north. See Genesis 31:21, Numbers 32:1.

defend itself
  (Hirsch). Sagav in Hebrew. Or, 'was stronger than' (Targum, Ibn Ezra); 'remained above' (Radak, Sherashim); or 'escaped' (Septuagint).
