*older JOSHUA; he was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the Lord had commanded Moses. He led the people across the Jordan River into the Promised Land and with the Lord's help they conquered the Canaanites who lived there and took possession of it. He died at the age of 110. And they buried him in the land of his inheritance, in the hill country of Ephraim.
