Deuteronomy 1:8-11, 15-17 (Vespers, 2nd reading, Fathers)

See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to your fathers – to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – to give to them and their descendants after them.’
And I spoke to you at that time, saying: ‘I alone am not able to bear you.
The Lord your God has multiplied you, and here you are today, as the stars of heaven in multitude.
May the Lord God of your fathers make you a thousand times more numerous than you are, and bless you as He has promised you!
