כָּל־מָקוֹם אֲשֶׁר תִּדְרֹךְ כַּף־רַגְלְכֶם בּוֹ לָכֶם נְתַתִּיו כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתִּי אֶל־מֹשֶׁה Hear the verse in Hebrew

The Promised Land
Hashem (God) instructs Yehoshua (Joshua) the new leader of the nation of Israel, to rise up and lead them across the Jordan River, and to inhabit the land that Hashem is giving them. Taking possession of the Land of Israel will require human action, which will be supported by God’s miracles. At the very beginning of Yehoshua‘s leadership, the nation is reminded that the entire Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish People, and they must do their part to take possession of this special gift from Hashem.
