Deuteronomy Chapter 9 & Joshua Chapter 14
9:1 Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to
possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and
fenced up to heaven,
9:2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou
knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the
children of Anak!
9:3 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which
goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and
he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out,
and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.
9:4 Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God hath cast
them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the LORD hath
brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these
nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee.
9:5 Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart,
dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these
nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that
he may perform the word which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob.
9:6 Understand therefore, that the LORD thy God giveth thee not this
good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a
9:7 Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy God to
wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the
land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious
against the LORD.
9:8 Also in Horeb ye provoked the LORD to wrath, so that the LORD was
angry with you to have destroyed you.
9:9 When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone,
even the tables of the covenant which the LORD made with you, then I
abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread
nor drink water:
9:10 And the LORD delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the
finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words, which
the LORD spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the
day of the assembly.
9:11 And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that
the LORD gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables of the
9:12 And the LORD said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from hence;
for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt have corrupted
themselves; they are quickly turned aside out of the way which I
commanded them; they have made them a molten image.
9:13 Furthermore the LORD spake unto me, saying, I have seen this
people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
9:14 Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name from
under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier and greater than
9:15 So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned with
fire: and the two tables of the covenant were in my two hands.
9:16 And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD your God,
and had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the
way which the LORD had commanded you.
9:17 And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and
brake them before your eyes.
9:18 And I fell down before the LORD, as at the first, forty days and
forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all
your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the LORD,
to provoke him to anger.
9:19 For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the
LORD was wroth against you to destroy you. But the LORD hearkened unto
me at that time also.
9:20 And the LORD was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I
prayed for Aaron also the same time.
9:21 And I took your sin, the calf which ye had made, and burnt it with
fire, and stamped it, and ground it very small, even until it was as
small as dust: and I cast the dust thereof into the brook that descended
out of the mount.
9:22 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibrothhattaavah, ye provoked
the LORD to wrath.
9:23 Likewise when the LORD sent you from Kadeshbarnea, saying, Go up
and possess the land which I have given you; then ye rebelled against
the commandment of the LORD your God, and ye believed him not, nor
hearkened to his voice.
9:24 Ye have been rebellious against the LORD from the day that I knew
9:25 Thus I fell down before the LORD forty days and forty nights, as I
fell down at the first; because the LORD had said he would destroy you.
9:26 I prayed therefore unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, destroy not
thy people and thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed through thy
greatness, which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty
9:27 Remember thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not unto the
stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin:
9:28 Lest the land whence thou broughtest us out say, Because the LORD
was not able to bring them into the land which he promised them, and
because he hated them, he hath brought them out to slay them in the
9:29 Yet they are thy people and thine inheritance, which thou
broughtest out by thy mighty power and by thy stretched out arm.
14:1 And these are the countries which the
children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the
priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the
tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for inheritance to them.
14:2 By lot was their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by the hand of
Moses, for the nine tribes, and for the half tribe.
14:3 For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and an half tribe
on the other side Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave none inheritance
14:4 For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim:
therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save cities to
dwell in, with their suburbs for their cattle and for their substance.
14:5 As the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did, and
they divided the land.
14:6 Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb
the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing
that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in
14:7 Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me
from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as
it was in mine heart.
14:8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the
people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.
14:9 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy
feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children's for
ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.
14:10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these
forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses,
while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I
am this day fourscore and five years old.
14:11 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent
me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both
to go out, and to come in.
14:12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in
that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and
that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with
me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.
14:13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh
Hebron for an inheritance.
14:14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of
Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day, because that he wholly followed
the LORD God of Israel.
14:15 And the name of Hebron before was Kirjatharba; which Arba was a
great man among the Anakims. And the land had rest from war.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
