And the LORDsaid unto Moses, Get thee up into this mountAbarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.13
And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered .
For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.15
And Mosesspake unto the LORD,saying ,
Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh,set a man over the congregation,17
Which may go outbefore them, and which may go inbefore them, and which may lead them out , and which may bring them in ; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd .
And the LORDsaid unto Moses,Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;
And set him beforeEleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.20
And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient .
And he shall standbeforeEleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the judgment of Urimbefore the LORD: at his word shall they go out , and at his word they shall come in , both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.22
And Mosesdid as the LORDcommanded him: and he tookJoshua, and set him beforeEleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:23
And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge , as the LORDcommanded by the hand of Moses.
