Be Courageous – Deuteronomy 31

And Moses went and spake these words unto all  Israel. Deuteronomy 31:1 

Deuteronomy 31:2 And he said unto them, I am an hundred and  twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come  in: also the LORD hath said unto me, Thou shalt not go  over this Jordan. 

Deuteronomy 31:3 The LORD thy God, he will go  over before thee, and he will destroy these nations from  before thee, and thou shalt possess them: and Joshua, he  shall go over before thee, as the LORD hath said. 

Deuteronomy 31:4  And the LORD shall do unto them as he did to Sihon and to  Og, kings of the Amorites, and unto the land of them, whom  he destroyed. 

Deuteronomy 31:5 And the LORD shall give them up  before your face, that ye may do unto them according unto  all the commandments which I have commanded you.  

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be  afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go  with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.  

Deuteronomy 31:7 And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him  in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage:  for thou must go with this people unto the land which the  LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou  shalt cause them to inherit it. 

Deuteronomy 31:8 And the LORD, he it  is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not  fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed. 

Deuteronomy 31:9 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto  the priests the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the  covenant of the LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel.   

Deuteronomy 31:10 And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end  of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of  release, in the feast of tabernacles,  

Deuteronomy 31:11 When all Israel  is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place  which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all  Israel in their hearing.  

Deuteronomy 31:12 Gather the people together,  men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is  within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may  learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all  the words of this law:  

Deuteronomy 31:13 And that their children,  which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to  fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land  whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.   

Deuteronomy 31:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thy  days approach that thou must die: call Joshua, and present  yourselves in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may  give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua went, and  presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation.   

Deuteronomy 31:15 And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a  pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the  door of the tabernacle.   

Deuteronomy 31:16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou  shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and  go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land,  whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me,  and break my covenant which I have made with them.   

Deuteronomy 31:17 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in  that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face  from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and  troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day.  Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not  among us?  

Deuteronomy 31:18 And I will surely hide my face in that  day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that  they are turned unto other gods.  

Deuteronomy 31:19 Now therefore  write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me  against the children of Israel.  

Deuteronomy 31:20 For when I shall have  brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers,  that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten  and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn  unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break  my covenant.  

Deuteronomy 31:21 And it shall come to pass, when  many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song  shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be  forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their  imagination which they go about, even now, before I have  brought them into the land which I sware.    

Deuteronomy 31:22 Moses therefore wrote this song the same day,  and taught it the children of Israel.  

Deuteronomy 31:23 And he gave  Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be strong and of a  good courage: for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into  the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee.   

Deuteronomy 31:24 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an  end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they  were finished,  

Deuteronomy 31:25 That Moses commanded the Levites,  which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying,   

Deuteronomy 31:26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of  the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may  be there for a witness against thee.  

Deuteronomy 31:27 For I know thy  rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive  with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the  LORD; and how much more after my death?   

Deuteronomy 31:28 Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and  your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and  call heaven and earth to record against them.  

Deuteronomy 31:29 For I  know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt  yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have  commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days;  because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke  him to anger through the work of your hands.  

Deuteronomy 31:30 And  Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the  words of this song, until they were ended.  KJV
