Possessing your Possessions - Deuteronomy 1

These be the words which Moses spake unto all  Israel on this side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over  against the Red sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and  Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.  Deuteronomy 1:1 KJV

Deuteronomy 1:2 (There are  eleven days’ journey from Horeb by the way of mount  Seir unto Kadesh-barnea.) 

Deuteronomy 1:3 And it came to pass in the  fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the  month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel,  according unto all that the LORD had given him in  commandment unto them; 

Deuteronomy 1:4 After he had slain Sihon  the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og  the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei: 

Deuteronomy 1:5  On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to  declare this law, saying, 

Deuteronomy 1:6 The LORD our God spake  unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this  mount: 

Deuteronomy 1:7 Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the  mount of the Amorites, and unto all the places nigh  thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in  the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites,  and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the river Euphrates.  

Deuteronomy 1:8 Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and  possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers,  Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their  seed after them.  

Deuteronomy 1:9 And I spake unto you at that time, saying, I am not  able to bear you myself alone: 

Deuteronomy 1:10 The LORD your God  hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye are this day as the  stars of heaven for multitude. 

Deuteronomy 1:11 (The LORD God of  your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye  are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!) 

Deuteronomy 1:12 How  can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden,  and your strife? 

Deuteronomy 1:13 Take you wise men, and  understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will  make them rulers over you. 

Deuteronomy 1:14 And ye answered me,  and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us  to do. 

Deuteronomy 1:15 So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men,  and known, and made them heads over you, captains over  thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over  fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your  tribes. 

Deuteronomy 1:16 And I charged your judges at that time,  saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge  righteously between every man and his brother, and the  stranger that is with him. 

Deuteronomy 1:17 Ye shall not respect  persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as  the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the  judgment is God’s: and the cause that is too hard for you,  bring it unto me, and I will hear it. 

Deuteronomy 1:18 And I  commanded you at that time all the things which ye should  do.  

Deuteronomy 1:19 And when we departed from Horeb, we went  through all that great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw  by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, as the LORD  our God commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea.  

Deuteronomy 1:20 And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain  of the Amorites, which the LORD our God doth give unto  us. 

Deuteronomy 1:21 Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land  before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of  thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be  discouraged.  

Deuteronomy 1:22 And ye came near unto me every one of you, and  said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us  out the land, and bring us word again by what way we must  go up, and into what cities we shall come. 

Deuteronomy 1:23 and the  saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one  of a tribe: 

Deuteronomy 1:24 And they turned and went up into the  mountain, and came unto the valley of Eshcol, and searched  it out. 

Deuteronomy 1:25 And they took of the fruit of the land in their  hands, and brought it down unto us, and brought us word  again, and said, It is a good land which the LORD our  God doth give us. 

Deuteronomy 1:26 Notwithstanding ye would not go  up, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD  your God: 

Deuteronomy 1:27 And ye murmured in your tents, and said,  Because the LORD hated us, he hath brought us forth out of  the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the  Amorites, to destroy us. 

Deuteronomy 1:28 Whither shall we go up? our  brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is  greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled  up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the  Anakims there. 

Deuteronomy 1:29 Then I said unto you, Dread not,  neither be afraid of them. 

Deuteronomy 1:30 The LORD your God  which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to  all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes; 

Deuteronomy 1:31  And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the  LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all  the way that ye went, until ye came into this place. 

Deuteronomy 1:32  Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,   

Deuteronomy 1:33 Who went in the way before you, to search you out a  place to pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you  by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day. 

Deuteronomy 1:34  And the LORD heard the voice of your words, and was  wroth, and sware, saying, 

Deuteronomy 1:35 Surely there shall not one  of these men of this evil generation see that good land,  which I sware to give unto your fathers, 

Deuteronomy 1:36 Save Caleb  the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give  the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children,  because he hath wholly followed the LORD. 

Deuteronomy 1:37 Also  the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou  also shalt not go in thither. 

Deuteronomy 1:38 But Joshua the son of  Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither:  encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it. 

Deuteronomy 1:39  Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey,  and your children, which in that day had no knowledge  between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto  them will I give it, and they shall possess it. 

Deuteronomy 1:40 But as  for you, turn you, and take your journey into the wilderness  by the 
way of the Red sea. 

Deuteronomy 1:41 Then ye answered and  said unto me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will  go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God  commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his  weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill. 

Deuteronomy 1:42  And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them, Go not up,  neither fight; for I am not among you; lest ye be smitten  before your enemies. 

Deuteronomy 1:43 So I spake unto you; and ye  would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of  the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill.  

Deuteronomy 1:44 And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain,  came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and  destroyed you in Seir, even unto Hormah. 

Deuteronomy 1:45 And ye  returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would  not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you. 

Deuteronomy 1:46 So  ye abode in Kadesh many days, according unto the days that  ye abode there.
