Contemporary English Version
37 The Lord was even angry with me because of you people, and he said, “Moses, I won’t let you go into the land either. 38 Instead, I will let Joshua[a] your assistant lead Israel to conquer the land. So encourage him.”
39 Then the Lord spoke to you again:
People of Israel, you said that your innocent young children would be taken prisoner in the battle for the land. But someday I will let them go into the land, and with my help they will conquer it and live there.
- 1.38 Joshua: Hebrew “Joshua son of Nun.”
