Moses continued speaking to the people of Israel,
and said, "I am now a hundred and twenty years old and am no longer able to be your leader. And besides this, the Lord has told me that I will not cross the Jordan. 13
The Lord your God himself will go before you and destroy the nations living there, so that you can occupy their land; and Joshua will be your leader, as the Lord has said.
The Lord will destroy those people, just as he defeated Sihon and Og, kings of the Amorites, and destroyed their country. 25
The Lord will give you victory over them, and you are to treat them exactly as I have told you.
Be determined and confident. Do not be afraid of them. Your God, the Lord himself, will be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you."
