MSG 12 God said to Moses, "Climb up into the Abarim Mountains and look over at the land that I am giving to the People of Israel. NIV 12 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go up this mountain in the Abarim range and see the land I have given the Israelites. MSG 13 When you've had a good look you'll be joined to your ancestors in the grave - yes, you also along with Aaron your brother. NIV 13 After you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, as your brother Aaron was, MSG 14 This goes back to the day when the congregation quarreled in the Wilderness of Zin and you didn't honor me in holy reverence before them in the matter of the waters, the Waters of Meribah (Quarreling) at Kadesh in the Wilderness of Zin." NIV 14 for when the community rebelled at the waters in the Desert of Zin, both of you disobeyed my command to honor me as holy before their eyes." (These were the waters of Meribah Kadesh, in the Desert of Zin.) MSG 15 Moses responded to God: NIV 15 Moses said to the LORD, MSG 16 "Let God, the God of the spirits of everyone living, set a man over this community NIV 16 "May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all mankind, appoint a man over this community MSG 17 to lead them, to show the way ahead and bring them back home so God's community will not be like sheep without a shepherd." NIV 17 to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so the LORD's people will not be like sheep without a shepherd." MSG 18 God said to Moses, "Take Joshua the son of Nun - the Spirit is in him! - and place your hand on him. NIV 18 So the LORD said to Moses, "Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay your hand on him. MSG 19 Stand him before Eleazar the priest in front of the entire congregation and commission him with everyone watching. NIV 19 Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him in their presence. MSG 20 Pass your magisterial authority over to him so that the whole congregation of the People of Israel will listen obediently to him. NIV 20 Give him some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him. MSG 21 He is to consult with Eleazar the priest who, using the oracle-Urim, will prayerfully advise him in the presence of God. He will command the People of Israel, the entire community, in all their comings and goings." NIV 21 He is to stand before Eleazar the priest, who will obtain decisions for him by inquiring of the Urim 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." MSG 22 Moses followed God's orders. He took Joshua and stood him before Eleazar the priest in front of the entire community. NIV 22 Moses did as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua and had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole assembly. MSG 23 He laid his hands on him and commissioned him, following the procedures God had given Moses. NIV 23 Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him, as the LORD instructed through Moses.
