So Moses continued to speak these words to all Israel.
And he said to them, "I am 1 120 years old today. I am no longer able to 2go out and come in. The LORD has said to me, 3'You shall not go over this Jordan.'
The LORD your God 4himself will go over before you. He will destroy these nations before you, so that you shall dispossess them, and Joshua will go over at your head, 5as the LORD has spoken.
And the LORD will do to them 6as he did to Sihon 7and Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land, when he destroyed them.
And the LORD will give them over to you, and you shall do to them 8according to the whole commandment that I have commanded you.
69Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, 10for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. 11He will not leave you or forsake you."
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.
It is the LORD14 who goes before you. He will be with you; 15he will not leave you or forsake you. 16Do not fear or be dismayed."
