||Let him come and go before them, and let him bring them forth and lead them. Let God's community not be like sheep that have no shepherd.'

||God said to Moses, 'Take Joshua son of Nun, a man of spirit, and lay your hands on him.
Vayomer Adonay el-Moshe kach-lecha et-Yehoshua bin-Nun ish asher-ruach bo vesamachta et-yadecha alav.
|lay your hands...|
See Deuteronomy 34:9. Some say that this 'laying of hands' actually denoted ordination (Sanhedrin 13b). According to others, Moses actually laid his hands on Joshua, but in later generations, it was not required for ordination (Yad, Sanhedrin 4:1,2).
