|Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
47 for it [is] not a vain thing for you, for it [is] your life, and by this thing ye prolong days on the ground whither ye are passing over the Jordan to possess it.'
47 They are not just idle words for you--they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess."
