 2:13
2:11 As giants, they might be considered Rephaim, but the Moabites called them Emim.
Refa'im yechashvu af-hem ka'Anakim vehaMoavim yikre'u lahem Emim.
2:12 It was like Seir, where the Horites lived originally, but were driven out by Esau's descendants, who annihilated them and lived there in their place. This is also what Israel is to do in the hereditary land that God gave them.
UveSe'ir yashvu haChorim lefanim uveney Esav yirashum vayashmidum mipneyhem vayeshvu tachtam ka'asher asah Yisra'el le'erets yerushato asher-natan Adonay lahem.
2:13 'Now get moving and cross the Zered Brook!'

We thus crossed the Zered Brook.
Atah kumu ve'ivru lachem et-nachal Zared vana'avor et-nachal Zared.
