We report the measurement of the two-neutrino double-beta () decay of Mo to the ground state of Ru using lithium molybdate () scintillating bolometers. The detectors were developed for the CUPID-Mo program and operated at the EDELWEISS-III low background facility in the Modane underground laboratory (France). From a total exposure of 42.235 kgday, the half-life of Mo is determined to be years. This is the most accurate determination of the half-life of Mo to date.
