war was of God
1 Chronicles 5:22
5:22 war was of God. This campaign, carried on by the tribes east of the Jordan (Reuben, Gad, half-tribe of Manasseh) was part of the wars of the conquest commanded by God. It was carried out in that light, and therefore God blessed and gave the victory. Although it is not mentioned elsewhere, it evidently occurred during the time of Saul (I Chronicles 5:10), when Saul was mainly occupied with the Philistines and other peoples on the west.
