Joshua Succeeds Moses

15 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
16 "Let Yahweh, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the community
17 who will go out before them and will come in before them, and who will lead them out and bring them in, so the community of Yahweh will not be like a flock that does not have a shepherd."
18 Then Yahweh said to Moses, "Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is [the] spirit, and place your hand on him.
19 Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and before the entire community, and {commission him} {in their sight}.
20 You will give to him from your authority so that the entire community of Israel will {obey him}.
21 He will stand before Eleazar the priest, who will ask for him by the decision of the Urim before Yahweh. On {his command} they will go out, and at {his command} they will come in, [both] he and all of the {Israelites} with him, the entire community."
22 Moses did just as Yahweh commanded him, and he took Joshua and set him before Eleazar the priest and before the entire community.
23 And he placed his hands on him and {commissioned him} just as Yahweh spoke by the hand of Moses.
