So the LORD said to Moses, "Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit,a1 and lay your hand on him.219
Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him3 in their presence.420
Give him some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him.521
He is to stand before Eleazar the priest, who will obtain decisions for him by inquiring6 of the Urim7 before the LORD. At his command he and the entire community of the Israelites will go out, and at his command they will come in."
Moses did as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua and had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole assembly.
Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him,8 as the LORD instructed through Moses.
