How tall was Og, king of Bashan?


a.gif (1659 bytes)   

Deuteronomy 3:11 says, “For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.”
The cubit is about 18 inches, so that would make his bed about 13 1/2 feet long, and 6 feet wide.  Seeming it was a custom-made bed, then he would have made the bed longer than he was tall (unless he liked his feet hanging off the bed).  A good guess would be that he was a little over 12 feet tall.
