Then 12Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, 13"Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land that the LORD has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall put them in possession of it.
And the LORD said to Moses, 27"Behold, the days approach when you must die. Call Joshua and present yourselves in the tent of meeting, that 28I may commission him." And Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves in the tent of meeting.
And the LORD said to Moses, 30"Behold, you are about to lie down with your fathers. Then this people will rise and 31whore after the foreign gods among them in the land that they are entering, and they will 32forsake me and 33break my covenant that I have made with them.
Then my anger will be kindled against them in that day, and 34I will forsake them and 35hide my face from them, and they will be devoured. And many evils and troubles will come upon them, so that they will say in that day, 36'Have not these evils come upon us because 37our God is not among us?'
For when I have brought them into the land 42flowing with milk and honey, which I swore to give to their fathers, and they have eaten and are full and 43grown fat, 44they will turn to other gods and serve them, and 45despise me and 46break my covenant.
And when many evils and troubles have come upon them, this song shall confront them as 47a witness (for it will live unforgotten in the mouths of their offspring). For 48I know what they are inclined to do even today, before I have brought them into the land that I swore to give."
For I know that after my death 60you will surely act corruptly and turn aside from the way that I have commanded you. And 61in the days to come 62evil will befall you, because you will do what is evil in the sight of the LORD, 63provoking him to anger through the work of your hands."
