(A)No one will be able to oppose you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; (B)I will not desert you nor abandon you. (C)Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous; [a](D)be careful to do according to all the Law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may [b]achieve success wherever you go. (E)This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may [c]be careful to do according to all that is written in it; (F)for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will [d]achieve success. Have I not commanded you? (G)Be strong and courageous! (H)Do not be terrified nor dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
