YASHAR 87 (Jasher 87)

1 At that time 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to Mosheh, “See your days are approaching to an end, take now Yahoshua son of Nun your servant and place him in the Mishkan, and I will command him.” And Mosheh did so.

2 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 appeared in the Mishkan in a pillar of cloud, and the pillar of cloud stood at the entrance of the Mishkan.

3 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 commanded Yahoshua son of Nun and said to him, “Be strong and courageous, for you shall bring the children of Yisra’ĕl to the land which I swore to give them, and I will be with you.”

4 And Mosheh said to Yahoshua, “Be strong and courageous, for you will make the children of Yisra’ĕl inherit the land, and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will be with you, he will not leave you nor forsake you, be not afraid nor disheartened.”

5 And Mosheh called to all the children of Yisra’ĕl and said to them, “You have seen all the good which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim has done for you in the wilderness.

6 “Now therefore observe all the words of this Torah, and walk in the Way of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim. Do not turn from the Way which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has commanded you, either to the right or to the left.”

7 And Mosheh taught the children of Yisra’ĕl Laws and Right-Rulings and Torot to do in the land as 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had commanded him.

8 And he taught them the Way of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and His Torot; see, they are written upon the Book of the Torah of Elohim which he gave to the children of Yisra’ĕl by the hand of Mosheh.

9 And Mosheh finished commanding the children of Yisra’ĕl, and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 spoke to him, saying, “Go up to the Mount Aḇarim and die there, and be gathered to your people as Aharon your brother was gathered.”

10 And Mosheh went up as 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had commanded him, and he died there in the land of Mo’aḇ by the command of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, in the fortieth year from the Yisra’ĕlites going out from the land of Mitsrayim.

11 And the children of Yisra’ĕl wept for Mosheh in the plains of Mo’aḇ for thirty days, and the days of weeping and mourning for Mosheh were completed.
