So Moses continued to speak these words to all Israel.
And he said to them, "I am a hundred and twenty years old this day; I am no longer able to go out and come in. The LORD has said to me, 'You shall not go over this Jordan.'
The LORD your God himself will go over before you; he will destroy these nations before you, so that you shall dispossess them; and Joshua will go over at your head, as the LORD has spoken.
And the LORD will do to them as he did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land, when he destroyed them.
And the LORD will give them over to you, and you shall do to them according to all the commandment which I have commanded you.
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear or be in dread of them: for it is the LORD your God who goes with you; he will not fail you or forsake you."
Then Moses summoned Joshua, and said to him in the sight of all Israel, "Be strong and of good courage; for you shall go with this people into the land which the LORD has sworn to their fathers to give them; and you shall put them in possession of it.
It is the LORD who goes before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you or forsake you; do not fear or be dismayed."
And Moses wrote this law, and gave it to the priests the sons of Levi, who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and to all the elders of Israel.
And Moses commanded them, "At the end of every seven years, at the set time of the year of release, at the feast of booths,
when all Israel comes to appear before the LORD your God at the place which he will choose, you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing.
