NIV 20 "I will hide my face from them," he said, "and see what their end will be; for they are a perverse generation, children who are unfaithful.

LEB 47 for it [is] not a trifling matter among you, but it [is] your life, and through this word {you will live long in the land} that you [are about] to cross the Jordan [to get] there to take possession of it." NIV 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." LEB 48 And Yahweh said to Moses on exactly this day, {saying}, NIV 48 On that same day the LORD told Moses, LEB 49 "Go up to this mountain of the Abarim [range], Mount Nebo, which [is] {opposite Jericho}, and see the land of Canaan that I [am] giving to the {Israelites} as [a] possession.
