3:16 To the Reubenites and Gaddites, I gave [the territory] between the Gilead and the Arnon Gorge, including the interior of the gorge and its boundary. [The territory extended] as far as the gorge of the Jabbok, the border of the Ammonites.
Vela-Re'uveni vela-Gadi natati min-haGil'ad ve'ad-nachal Arnon toch hanachal ugvul ve'ad Yabok hanachal gvul beney Amon.
3:17 [It also included] the Aravah, the Jordan, and its boundary, from the Kinnereth as far as the Aravah Sea, which is [the portion of] the Dead Sea under the rapids on the cliff to the east.
Veha'Aravah vehaYarden ugvul miKineret ve'ad yam ha'Aravah Yam haMelach tachat ashdot haPisgah mizrachah.
