what land belongs

Joshua 12:1-6 (JDV)

Joshua 12:1 The Israelites struck down these kings of the land and took possession of their land beyond the Jordan to the east and from the Arnon River to Mount Hermon, including all the Arabah eastward:
Joshua 12:2 King Sihon of the Amorites lived in Heshbon. He ruled from Aroer on the rim of the Arnon River, along the middle of the valley, and half of Gilead up to the Jabbok River (the border of the Ammonites),
Joshua 12:3 the Arabah east of the Sea of Chinnereth to the Sea of Arabah (that is, the Dead Sea), eastward through Beth-jeshimoth and southward below the slopes of Pisgah.
Joshua 12:4 King Og of Bashan, of the remnant of the Rephaim, lived in Ashtaroth and Edrei.
Joshua 12:5 He ruled over Mount Hermon, Salecah, all Bashan up to the Geshurite and Maacathite border, and half of Gilead to the border of King Sihon of Heshbon.
Joshua 12:6 Moses Yahveh’s servant and the Israelites struck them down. And Moses Yahveh’s servant gave their land as an inheritance to the Reubenites, Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh.

what land belongs

Commenting on this passage, David Guzik writes “This list only seems tedious to us because we do not live in the land. For those who received their inheritance there, these were essential matters that touched everyday life, answering the question: “What land belongs to Israel?””(https://enduringword.com/bible-commentary/joshua-12/)

All the kings and all the land of this planet belongs to our King, Jesus, whose kingdom is going to come down from the sky. He is the rightful ruler of the nations, and he has sent us ahead as his ambassadors to prepare the nations for his coming.

Coming King, instill in us a perpetual awareness that the nations belong to you.
