23 "And I pleaded with the Lord at that time, saying, 24 'O Lord God, you have only begun to show your servant n your greatness and your mighty hand. For o what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do such works and mighty acts as yours? 25 Please let me go over and see p the good land beyond the Jordan, that good hill country and q Lebanon.' 26 But r the Lord was angry with me because of you and would not listen to me. And the Lord said to me, s 'Enough from you; do not speak to me of this matter again. 27 t Go up to the top of Pisgah and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward, and look at it with your eyes, for you shall not go over this Jordan. 28 But u charge Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he shall go over at the head of this people, and he shall put them in possession of the land that you shall see.' 29 So we remained in v the valley opposite Beth-peor.
