The LORD replied to Moses, "Take Joshua son of Nun, a man who has the Spirit in him, and lay your hands on him.
Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole community, and commission him in their sight.
Confer some of your authority on him so that the entire Israelite community will obey [him].
He will stand before Eleazar who will consult the LORD for him with the decision of the Urim. He and all the Israelites with him, even the entire community, will go out and come back in at his command."
Moses did as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua, had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire community,
laid his hands on him, and commissioned him, as the LORD had spoken through Moses.
