Og the Giant’s Memoirs now on Chabad.org

King Og of Bashan has written down his life experiences, and they appear on Chabad.org!

I have lived a long life, and it is difficult to remember all that I have experienced. I am forever indebted to the Jewish people for being so diligent in their note-taking and for making sure that history is not forgotten. My story can be pieced together from accounts recorded in their texts, both in the written Torah, as well as in the collection of teachings known as the Midrash.
