Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; ignore the stubbornness, wickedness, and sin of these people.
Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ 1 I have let you see it, 2 but you will not cross over there.”
Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die. But God will surely come to you 1 and lead you up from this land to the land he swore on oath to give 2 to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
I will bring you to the land I swore to give 1 to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob – and I will give it to you 2 as a possession. I am the Lord!’”
The Lord said to Moses, “Go up 1 from here, you and the people whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, to the land I promised on oath 2 to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ 3
‘Because they have not followed me wholeheartedly, 1 not 2 one of the men twenty years old and upward 3 who came from Egypt will see the land that I swore to give 4 to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
Look! I have already given the land to you. 1 Go, occupy the territory that I, 2 the Lord, promised 3 to give to your ancestors 4 Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to their descendants.” 5
Then when the Lord your God brings you to the land he promised your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to give you – a land with large, fine cities you did not build,
It is not because of your righteousness, or even your inner uprightness, 1 that you have come here to possess their land. Instead, because of the wickedness of these nations the Lord your God is driving them out ahead of you in order to confirm the promise he 2 made on oath to your ancestors, 3 to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Today he will affirm that you are his people and that he is your God, 1 just as he promised you and as he swore by oath to your ancestors 2 Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
I also call on you 1 to love the Lord your God, to obey him and be loyal to him, for he gives you life and enables you to live continually 2 in the land the Lord promised to give to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
