passage 1 - Deuteronomy 31:1-8

* - denotes footnote

Joshua Becomes Israel's Leader
1 When Moses had finished giving these instructions* to all the people of Israel,2 he said, "I am now 120 years old, and I am no longer able to lead you. The LORD has told me, 'You will not cross the Jordan River.'3 But the LORD your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy the nations living there, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua will lead you across the river, just as the LORD promised.
  4 "The LORD will destroy the nations living in the land, just as he destroyed Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites.5 The LORD will hand over to you the people who live there, and you must deal with them as I have commanded you.6 So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you."
  7 Then Moses called for Joshua, and as all Israel watched, he said to him, "Be strong and courageous! For you will lead these people into the land that the LORD swore to their ancestors he would give them. You are the one who will divide it among them as their grants of land.8 Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you."

I would say without question, that the accuracy of the New Living Translation and the scholarship that has gone into it has been impressive, and I can trust it.
