||We then captured all his cities, not leaving a single city that we did not take from [his people]. These included the entire Argov group of 60 cities that constituted Og's kingdom in the Bashan.
Vanilkod et-kol-arav ba'et hahi lo hayetah kiryah asher lo-lakachnu me'itam shishim ir kol-chevel argov mamlechet Og baBashan.
||They were all cities fortified with high walls, gates and bars, and there were also very many open towns.
Kol-eleh arim betsurot chomah gevohah delatayim uveriach levad me'arey haperazi harbeh me'od.
Chevel Argov in Hebrew. (cf. Ibn Ezra; Septuagint). See Deuteronomy 3:14, 1 Kings 4:13; cf. 2 Kings 15:25. Saadia identifies the Argov as Almogav, the land between the Arnon and the Jabbok. The Targum renders Argov as Tarkhona, which Rashi interprets as 'royal cities,' but which others see as a place name (Arukh). Others see Argov as coming from the root ragav (cf. Job 21:33, 38:38), a swamp (Ibn Janach), a mound, or a river tributary (Radak, Sherashim), a canal (Ibn Ezra on Job 21:33), or a gully (Ibn Ezra on Job 38:38). Some say that the Argov area is around Suwet, south of the upper Yarmuk, while others identify it with el-Leja, east of Lake Kinnereth (see Menachoth 8:3).
(Targum; Rashi). Or, 'Perizite towns' (Septuagint; cf. Genesis 13:7, 15:20).
