 27:20
27:19 Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and before the entire community, and let them see you commission him.
Veha'amadeta oto lifney El'azar hakohen velifney kol-ha'edah vetsivitah oto le'eyneyhem.
27:20 Invest him with some of your splendor so that the entire Israelite community will obey him.
Venatatah mehodcha alav lema'an yishme'u kol-adat beney Yisra'el.



Commentary:

splendor
  That is, authority (Ibn Ezra; Sforno). Others say that Moses gave Joshua a radiance similar to his own (Exodus 34:29; Targum Yonathan). The Talmud states that Moses' face gleamed like the sun, while Joshua's shone like the moon (Bava Bathra 75a).
