"Remember the command that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you: 'The LORD your God is giving you rest1 and has granted you this land.'
Your wives,2 your children and your livestock may stay in the land3 that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, fully armed,4 must cross over ahead of your brothers.5 You are to help your brothers
until the LORD gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land that the LORD your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you east of the Jordan toward the sunrise."616
Then they answered Joshua, "Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.717
Just as we fully obeyed Moses, so we will obey you.8 Only may the LORD your God be with you as he was with Moses.
Whoever rebels against your word and does not obey9 your words, whatever you may command them, will be put to death. Only be strong and courageous!10"
