Bashan

Bashan is first mentioned by name in Num. 21:33, where it says:

"Then they turned and went up along the road toward Bashan, and Og king of Bashan and his whole army marched out to meet them in battle at Edrei. (Num. 21:33, NIV)"

Bashan was an area of land that had the Jordan River as its western boundary and stretched east to Salcah, north to Hermon, and south to Gilead.

Two of Bashan's key cities were Golan, which became a "city of refuge" (Josh. 21:27), and Argob, which was one of King Solomon's districts (1 Kings 4:13).
