12 The Lord also said to Moses: Go up into this mountain Abarim, and view from thence the land which I will give to the children of Israel.
13 And when thou shalt have seen it, thou also shalt go to thy people, as thy brother Aaron is gone:
14 Because you offended me in the desert of Sin in the contradiction of the multitude, neither would you sanctify me before them at the waters. These are the waters of contradiction in Cades of the desert of Sin.
15 And Moses answered him:
16 May the Lord the God of the spirits of all flesh provide a man, that may be over this multitude:
17 And may go out and in before them, and may lead them out, or bring them in: lest the people of the Lord be as sheep without a shepherd.
18 And the Lord said to him: take Josue the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and put thy hand upon him.
19 And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest and all the multitude:
20 And thou shalt give him precepts in the sight of all, and part of thy glory, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may hear him.
