Where is Heshbon and Bashan

Bashan was located in present-day Lebanon and Heshbon was located in present-day Syria. These two kingdoms would be inhabited by the 2.5 tribes Gad Reuben and the 1/2 tribe of Manasseh. As we go further into the Old Testament into the time of Joshua, these tribes would help the remaining 9.5 tribes acquire their property. The thing to keep in mind is that, although the proposal was accepted and became binding, it was not necessary G-d’s best for the tribes and would be a problem for Israel in the following years or “latter days”.
