Duet 2:30 / Duet 3:1 - Reaction
In two separate accounts we see the Israelites marching towards the Promised Land to go in and take it from the Canaanites. On the way God commanded them to not meddle with certain people. But there were a few people groups (Arnon and Og) that meddled with the Israelites, and in response to this God allowed the Israelites to destroy them. Now when the Israelites entered the Promised Land they were the ones that picked the fights - it was "their" land and so it was their responsibility to take it. But on the way to the Promised Land they only fought when provoked.
