until the LORD gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land the LORD your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you east of the Jordan toward the sunrise."
For a long time now--to this very day--you have not deserted your fellow Israelites but have carried out the mission the LORD your God gave you.
