Vayelech 5781-82

This is Torah Talk for the week of September 5th, 2021

Deut. 31:1    Moses went and spoke these things to all Israel. 2  He said to them:

I am now one hundred and twenty years old, I can no longer be active. Moreover, the Lord has said to me, “You shall not go across yonder Jordan.” 3 The Lord your God Himself will cross over before you [ה֣וּא ׀ עֹבֵ֣ר לְפָנֶ֗יךָ]; and He Himself will wipe out those nations from your path and you shall dispossess them.—Joshua is the one who shall cross before you [הוּ֚א עֹבֵ֣ר לְפָנֶ֔יךָ], as the Lord has spoken.— 4 The Lord will do to them as He did to Sihon and Og, kings

Who exactly is “crossing over” Before the Israelites?  Is Joshua going with the Israelites, or leading them?  And … who is “he” in v.23?
