Why does the Torah see fit to mention here that Yisrael captured the lands of Sichon and Og?


Ramban: Refer to Devarim 1:4:1:1 & 2. The Torah is informing us that Moshe also began to explain the Torah only after he had captured the lands of Sichon and Og - and distributed it among the two and a half tribes.


Seforno: After Moshe captured inhabited land, where they were able to practice the Mitzvos without fear of being attacked, he proceeded to expound on the Torah and to warn them to observe it.
