Oznayim la'Torah: Because the Lashon "Az G'vul" implies keeping away from their borders, 1 which did not apply to Moa'v, since Yisrael were permitted to harrass them, only not to conquer their land. 2


See Oznayim la'Torah.

What are the connotations of "ve'Chol Benosehah"?


Rashi: It means 'And all the surrounding villages'.


Seforno: It means 'And all the minor towns of Sichon which were secondary to Cheshbon, which in turn, had always been his capital city, even before he defeated Mo'av.
