2Moses My servant is dead. So now arise take his place, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land which I am giving to them, the Israelites.
3Every place upon which the sole of your foot shall tread, that have I given to you, as I promised Moses.
4From the wilderness and this Lebanon to the great river Euphrates--all the land of the Hittites [Canaan]--and to the Great Mediterranean Sea on the west shall be your territory.
5No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you.
6Be strong (confident) and of good courage, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.
