After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD,1 the LORD said to Joshua2 son of Nun, Moses' aide:
"Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River34 into the land5 I am about to give to them6--to the Israelites.
I will give you every place where you set your foot,7 as I promised Moses.84
Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon,9 and from the great river, the Euphrates10--all the Hittite11 country--to the Great Seaa on the west.12
