6 The LORD our God said to us at Horeb,
“You have stayed long enough at this mountain.
7 Break camp and advance into the hill country of the Amorites;
go to all the neighboring peoples in the Arabah,
in the mountains, in the western foothills,
in the Negev and along the coast,
to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon,
as far as the great river, the Euphrates.
8 See, I have given you this land.
Go in and take possession of the land
the LORD swore he would give to your fathers—
to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—a
nd to their descendants after them".
"You have stayed long enough at this mountain . . ."
The old year has past, it is time to move on.
