49 Get thee up into this "i mountain Aba-
rim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land
of Moab, that is over against Jericho ; and
behold the land of Canaan which I give unto
the children of Israel for a possession :

50 And die in the mount whither thou
goest up, and be gathered unto thy people ;
as ''Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor,
and was gathered unto his people :

51 Because "ye trespassed against me
among the children of Israel at the waters
of II Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of
Zin ; because ye * sanctified me not in the
midst of the children of Israel.

. 52 "Yet thou shalt see the land before
thee, but thou shalt not go thither unto the
land which I give the children of Israel.

not his men be few.

7 IT And this is the blessing of Judah : and
he said. Hear, Lord, the voice of Judahj
and bring him unto his people : "let his
hands be sufficient for him, and be thou "an
help to him from his enemies.

8 H And of Levi he said, vLet thy Thum-
mim and thy Urim be with thy holy one,
iwhom thou didst prove at Massah, and with
whom thou didst strive at the waters of
Meribah ;

9 Who said unto his father and to his
mother, I have not ""seen him, = neither did
he acknowledge his brethren, nor knew his
own children : for *they have observed thy
word, and kept thy covenant.

10 II » They shall teach Jacob thy judg-
ments, and Israel thy law ; || ^'they shall put
incense t before thee, y and whole burnt sacri-
fice upon thine altar.

11 Bless, Lord, his substance, and ^accept
the work of his hands : smite through the loins
of them that rise against him, and of them
that hate him, that they rise not again.

12 ^ And of Benjamin he said. The be-
loved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by
him; and the LORD shall cover him all
the day long, and he shall dwell between his
shoulders.

13 ^And of Joseph he said, » Blessed of
the Lord be his land, for the precious things
of heaven, for ''the dew, and for the deep
that coucheth beneath,

14 And for the precious fruits brought
forth by the sun, and for the precious things
t put forth by the t moon,

15 And for the chief things of "the ancient
mountains, and for the precious things ^ of
the lasting hills,

16 And for the precious things of the
earth and fulness thereof, and ybr the good
will of *him that dwelt in the bush : let the
blessing *" come upon the head of Joseph, and
upon the top of the head of him that was
separated from his brethren.

17 His glory is like the ^firstling of his
bullock, and his horns are like ^ the horns of
t unicorns: with them 'he shall push the
people together to the ends of the earth : and
''they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and
they are the thousands of Manasseh.

Zebulun, in thy going out ; and Issachar,

that " enlargeth Gad : he dwelleth as a Hon,
and teareth the arm with the crown of the
head.

21 And Phe provided the first part for
himself, because there, in a portion of the
lawgiver, was he treated: and ihe came
with the heads of the people, he executed the
justice of the Lord, and his judgments with

AND Moses went up from the plains of
Moab, ''unto the mountain of Nebo, to
the top of II Pisgah, that is over against Jeri-
cho : and the Lord ^ shewed him all the
land of Gilead, "^unto Dan, -

2 And all Nfiphtali, and the land of
Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of
Judah, ''unto the utmost sea,

3 And the. south, and the plain of the
valley of Jericho, '^the city of palm-trees,
unto Zoar.

4 And the Lord said unto him, ""This is
the land Avhich I sware unto Abraham, unto
Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it
unto thy seed : el have caused thee to see i^
with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over
thither.

5 IT ''So Moses the servant of the Lord
died there in the land of Moab, according to
the word of the Lord.

6 And he buried him in a valley in the
land of Moab, over against Beth-peor : but
'no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this
day.

7 IF ''And Moses was an hundred and
twenty years old when he died : 'his eye was
not dim, nor his f natural force t abated.

8 IF And the children of Israel wept for
Moses in the plains of Moab ""thirty days :
so the days of weeping and mourning for
Moses were ended.

9 IF And Joshua the son of Nun was full
of the " spirit of wisdom ; for ° Moses had laid
his hands upon him : and the children of Israel
hearkened unto him, and did as the Lord
commanded Moses.

10 IF And there p arose not a prophet since
in Israel like unto Moses, iwhom the Lord
knew face to face,

1 1 In all ' the signs and the wonders which
the Lord sent him to do in the land of
Egypt, to Pharaoh, and to all his servants,
and to all his land ;

12 And in all that mighty hand, and in all
the great terror which Moses shewed in the



sight of all Israel.

1 The Lord appointeth Joshua to succeed Moses. 3 The
borders of the promised land. 5, 9 God promiseth
to assist Joshua. 8 He giveth him instructions. 10
He prepareth the people to pass over Jordan. 12
Joshuaputteth the two tribes aridhalf inmind of their
promise to Moses. 16 They promise him fealty.

NOW after the death of Moses, the ser-
vant of the Lord, it came to pass, that
the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun,
Moses' "^ minister, saying,

2 '' Moses my servant is dead ; now there-
fore arise, go over this Jordan, thou and all
this people, unto the laud vchich I do give to
them, even to the children of Israel.

3 "Every place that the sole of your foot
shall tread upon, that have I given unto you,
as I said unto Moses.

4 ''From the wilderness and this Lebanon
even unto the great river, the river Euphrates,
all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great
sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be
your coast.

5 ° There shall not any man be able to
stand before thee all the days of thy life : ''as

I was with Moses, so si will be with thee :
■"I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

6 'Be strong and of a good courage : for

II unto this people shalt thou divide for an
inheritance the land which I sware unto their
fathers to give them.

7 Only be thou strong and very courageous,
that thou mayest observe to do according to
all the law ''which Moses my servant com-
manded thee : 'turn not from it to the right
hand or to the left, that thou mayest || pros-
per whithersoever thou goest.

8 "This book of the law shall not depart
out of thy mouth ; but "thou shalt meditate
therein day and night, that thou mayest ob-
serve to do according to all that is written
therein : for then thou shalt make thy way
prosperous, and then thou shalt || have good
success.

9 ° Have not I commanded thee ? Be
strong and of a good courage ; p be not afraid,
neither be thou dismayed : for the Lord thy
God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

10 IT Then Joshua commanded the officers
of the people, saying,

Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh,
spake Joshua, saying,

13 Remember 'the word which Moses the
servant of the Lord commanded you, saying.
The Lord your God hath given you rest,
and hath given you this land.

14 Your wives, your little ones, and your
cattle shall remain in the land which Moses
gave you on this side Jordan ; but ye shall
pass before your brethren farmed, all the
mighty men of valour, and help them ;

15. Until the Lord have given your bre-
thren rest, as he hath given you, and they
also have possessed the land which the Lord
your God giveth them : nhen ye shall return
unto the land of your possession, and enjoy
it, which Moses the Lord's servant gave you
on this side Jordan toward the sun-rising.

16 IT And they answered Joshua saying.
All that thou commandestus, we will do, and
whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.

17 According as we hearkened unto Moses
in all things, so will we hearken unto thee :
only the Lord thy God * be with thee, as he
was Avith Moses.

18 Whosoever Ae be that doth rebel against
thy commandment, and will not hearken unto
thy words in all that thou commandest him,
he shall be put to death : only be strong and
of a good courage.

AND Joshua the son of Nun ]lsent "out
of Shittim two men to spy secretly,
saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And
they went, and ''came into an harlot's house,
named "Rahab, and t lodged there.

2 And ""it was told the king of Jericho,
saying. Behold, there came men in hither to-

house : for they be come to search out all
the country.

4 *And the woman took the two men,
and hid them, and said thus, There came
men unto me, but I wist not whence they
luere :

5 And it came to pass about the time of
shutting of the gate, when it was dark, that
the men went out : whither the men went,
I Avot not : pursue after them quickly ; for
ye shall overtake them.

6 But ''she had brought them up to the
roof of the house, and hid them with the
stalks of flax, which she had laid in order
upon the roof.

7 And the men pursued after them the
way to Jordan unto the fords : and as soon
as they which pursued after them were gone
out, they shut the gate.

8 H And before they were laid down, she
came up unto them upon the roof;

9 And she said unto the men, I know that
the Lord hath given you the land, and
that ffyour terror is fallen upon us, and that
all the inhabitants of the land t faint be-
cause of you.

10 For we have heard how the Lord
•■ dried up the water of the Red sea for you,
when ye came out of Egypt ; and ' what
ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites
that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon
and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed.

11 And as soon as we had ''heard these
things, 'our hearts did melt, neither fdid
there remain any more courage in any man,
because of you: for ""the Lord your God,
he is God in heaven above, and in earth
beneath.

12 Now therefore, I pray you, "swear
unto me by the Lord, since I have shewed
you kindness, that ye will also shew kind-
ness unto "my father's house, and Pgive me
a true token :

13 And that ye will save alive my father,
and my mother, and my brethren, and my
sisters, and all that they have, and dehver
our lives from death.

14 And the men answered her, Our life
ffor yours, if ye utter not this our business.
And it shall be, when the Lord hath given
us the land, that iwc will deal kindly and
truly with thee.

15 Then she Met them down by a cord
through the window : for her house was upon
the town-wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.

16 And she said unto them, Get you to
the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you ;
and hide yourselves there three days, until
the pursuers be returned : and afterward may
ye go your way.

Their return and relation.

17 And the men said unto her. We will
he ° blameless of this thine oath which thou
hast made us swear.

18 *Behold, when we come into the land,
thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in
the window which thou didst let us down by:
" and thou shalt t bring thy father, and thy
mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father's
household home unto thee.

19 And it shall be, that whosoever shall
go out of the doors of thy house into the
street, his blood shall he upon his head, and
we will he guiltless : and whosoever shall be
with thee in the house, '^his blood shall he on
our head, if any hand be upon him.

20 And if thou utter this our business,
then we will be quit of thine oath which thou
hast made us to swear.

21 And she said, According unto your
words, so he it. And she sent them away,
and they departed : and she bound the scarlet
line in the window.

22 And they went, and came unto the
mountain, and abode there three days, until
the pursuers Avere returned : and the pursuers
sought them throughout all the way, but
found them not.

23 IT So the two men returned, and de-
scended from the mountain, and passed over,
and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told
him all things that befell them :

24 And they said unto Joshua, Truly ythe
Lord hath delivered into our hands all the
land ; for even all the inhabitants of the
country do t faint because of us.

1 Joshua Cometh to Jordan. 2 The officers instruct the
people for the passage. 7 The Lord encourageth
Joshua. 9 Joshua encourageth the people. 14 The
waters of Jorda7i are divided.

AND Joshua rose early in the morning;
and they removed •''from Shittim, and
came to Jordan, he and all the children of
Israel, and lodged there before they passed
over.

2 And it came to pass '' after three days,
that the officers went through the host ;

3 And they commanded the people, saying,
•'When ye see the ark of the covenant of the
Lord your God, ''and the priests the Levites
bearing it, then ye shall remove from your
place, and go after it.

4 "Yet there shall be a space between you
and it, about two thousand cubits by measure :
come not near unto it, that ye may know the
way by which ye must go ; for ye have not
passed this way theretofore.

5 And Joshua said unto the people,
^Sanctify yourselves : for to-morrow the
Lord will do wonders among you.

The Israelites pass over Jordan. CHAP. IV.

6 And Joshua spake unto the priests, say-
ing, sTake up the ark of the covenant, and
pass over before the people. And they took f;
up the ark of the covenant, and went befoTe
the people.

7 IT And the Lord said unto Joshua, This
day will I begin to '' magnify thee in the sight
of all Israel, that they may know that 'as I
was with Moses, so I will be with thee.

8 And thou shalt command ^ the priests
that bear the ark of the covenant, saying,
When ye are come to the brink of the water
of Jordan, 'ye shall stand still in Jordan.

9 K And Joshua said unto the children of
Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of
the Lord your God.

10 And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall
know that "the living God is among you,
and that he will without fail "drive out from
before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites,
and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and
the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the
Jebusites.

11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of
"the Lord of all the earth passeth over be-
fore you into Jordan.

12 Now therefore Ptake you twelve men
out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe
a man.

13 And it shall come to pass, "las soon as
the soles of the feet of the priests that bear
the ark of the Lord, 'the Lord of all the
earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that
the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from
the waters that come down from above ; and
they ^ shall stand upon an heap.

14 IT And it came to pass, when the people
removed from their tents to pass over Jor-
dan, and the priests bearing the 'ark of the
covenant before the people ;

15'And as they that bare the ark were
come unto Jordan, and "the feet of the
priests that bare the ark were dipped in the
brim of the water, (for ^Jordan overfloweth
all his banks ^all the time of harvest,)

16 That the waters which came down
from above stood and rose up upon an heap
