The Words

These are the words that Moses addressed to all Israel on the other side of the Jordan. - Deuteronomy 1:1

Moses begins his final words of instruction to the Children of Israel, focusing first on recounting their physical journey.  Moses reviews the people’s reactions to the negative reports of the spies and the appointment of Joshua to succeed him.  Moses recounts that all of the Israelite warriors who left Egypt died, as G-d had intended, and the people continued their wanderings and defeated their enemies.  Moses reiterates that the Land of Israel was allocated to the Israelite tribes.
