Rejoice, you nations, over His people,a for He will avenge the blood of His servants.b He will take vengeance on His adversaries;cd He will purify His land and His people.e44
Moses came with Joshuaf son of Nun and recited all the words of this song in the presence of the people.
After Moses finished reciting all these words to all Israel,
he said to them, "Take to heart all these words I am giving as a warning to you today, so that you may command your children to carefully follow all the words of this law.
For they are not meaningless words to you but they are your life, and by them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess."
On that same day the Lord spoke to Moses,
"Go up Mount Nebo in the Abarim [range] in the land of Moab, across from Jericho, and view the land of Canaan I am giving the Israelites as a possession.
Then you will die on the mountain that you go up, and you will be gathered to your people, just as your brother Aaron died on Mount Hor and was gathered to his people.g51
For [both of] you broke faith with Me among the Israelites at the waters of Meribath-kadesh in the Wilderness of Zin by failing to treat Me as holy in their presence.
Although you will view the land from a distance, which I am giving the Israelites, you will not go there."h
