I, Moses, now speak directly to my people
To remind them of all that has transpired
Since the Exodus
And what now is expected of them.
Do not make the same mistake
The last generation made,
When they refused Adonai’s command
To take the Land promised to them.
That refusal resulted in 40 years wandering
From encampment to encampment
With no hope of ever entering the land.
Now Adonai is commanding you
A second time to take the land.
When Adonai tells you to fight,
What will you do?
Will you merely hanker for land you crave?
Or will you fight alongside your brothers?
If you fight like that, you will win.
