Back at Horeb,
God, our God,
spoke to us:
"You've stayed long enough at this mountain.
On your way now.
Head for the Amorite hills, wherever people are living in the Arabah, the mountains, the foothills, the Negev, the seashore—the Canaanite country and the Lebanon all the way to the big river, the Euphrates.
Look, I've given you this land.
Now go in and take it.
It's the land God promised to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their children after them."
