Deuteronomy 31:6

For 40 years, Moses led the Children of Israel as they wandered through the wilderness. The generation that witnessed God's mighty power in the land of Egypt, celebrated the Passover when the angel of death slaughtered the firstborn in Egypt, walked through the Red Sea on dry land, and saw the great, Egyptian army sink beneath into a watery grave, lived a defeated life through murmuring, complaining, unbelief, and pride.

Deuteronomy 31:8

Moses had led the children of Israel for forty years, but he was not be permitted to lead them across the Jordan. The time came when Moses was led to remind the Nation of the conditional covenant they had with God and urged them to choose life over death and blessings over curses. Faithfulness to God would result in many blessings for His covenant people, but disobedience would result in the entire Nation being cursed and scattered.
