1  Mose umugaragu wa Yehova amaze gupfa, Yehova yabwiye Yosuwa* umuhungu wa Nuni wafashaga* Mose, ati:  “Mose umugaragu wanjye yapfuye. None wowe n’aba bantu bose, nimwitegure kwambuka Yorodani mujye mu gihugu ngiye guha Abisirayeli.  Ahantu hose muzakandagiza ikirenge, nzahabaha nk’uko nabisezeranyije Mose.  Igihugu cyanyu kizahera ku butayu kigere kuri Libani no ku ruzi runini, ari rwo rwa Ufurate, kandi kigere ku Nyanja Nini* mu burengerazuba. Kizaba kigizwe n’ibihugu byose by’Abaheti.  Mu buzima bwawe bwose nta muntu n’umwe uzakurwanya ngo agutsinde. Nzabana nawe nk’uko nabanye na Mose. Sinzagusiga wenyine cyangwa ngo ngutererane.  Komera kandi ube intwari, kuko ari wowe uzatuma aba bantu baragwa igihugu narahiye ba sekuruza ko nzabaha.  “Ubwo rero, komera kandi ube intwari wumvire Amategeko yose umugaragu wanjye Mose yagutegetse. Ntihakagire na rimwe urengaho, kugira ngo ugaragaze ubwenge mu byo ukora byose.  Ibivugwa muri iki gitabo cy’Amategeko ujye uhora ubivuga, ubisome kandi ubitekerezeho ku manywa na nijoro kugira ngo ubashe gukurikiza ibyanditswemo byose, kuko ari bwo uzagira icyo ugeraho, kandi ukagaragaza ubwenge mu byo ukora byose.  Nongere mbigusubiriremo! Komera kandi ube intwari. Ntugire ubwoba, kuko njye Yehova Imana yawe nzaba ndi kumwe nawe aho uzajya hose.” 10  Nuko Yosuwa ategeka abayoboraga ubwo bwoko ati: 11  “Nimunyure mu nkambi, mugende mubwira abantu muti: ‘Nimutegure ibyokurya muzakenera kuko mu minsi itatu tuzambuka Yorodani, tugafata igihugu Yehova Imana yacu agiye kuduha.’” 12  Yosuwa abwira abo mu muryango wa Rubeni, uwa Gadi n’igice cy’abo mu muryango wa Manase ati: 13  “Mwibuke ibyo Mose umugaragu wa Yehova yabategetse ati: ‘Yehova Imana yanyu agiye kubaha iki gihugu mukibemo mufite amahoro. 14  Abagore banyu, abana banyu n’amatungo yanyu bizaguma mu gihugu Mose yabahaye mu burasirazuba bwa Yorodani. Ariko abasirikare mwese muzambuka mbere y’abavandimwe banyu mwiteguye kurwana. Mugomba kubafasha, 15  kugeza igihe Yehova azaha abavandimwe banyu amahoro nk’uko namwe yayabahaye kandi na bo bagafata igihugu Yehova Imana yanyu agiye kubaha. Icyo gihe ni bwo muzasubira mu gihugu mwahawe ngo mugituremo, icyo Mose umugaragu wa Yehova yabahaye mu burasirazuba bwa Yorodani.’” 16  Na bo basubiza Yosuwa bati: “Ibyo udutegetse byose tuzabikora, kandi aho uzatwohereza hose tuzajyayo. 17  Uko twumviraga ibyo Mose yatubwiraga byose ni ko nawe tuzakumvira. Icyo tukwifuriza gusa ni uko Yehova Imana yawe yabana nawe nk’uko yabanaga na Mose. 18  Umuntu wese uzica itegeko ryawe kandi ntakore ibyo uzamutegeka byose azicwe. Wowe komera kandi ube intwari.”
