1:1 And it came to pass after the death of Moses, that the Lord spoke
to Joshua the son of Naue, the minister of Moses, saying,
1:2 Moses my servant is dead; now then arise, go over Jordan, thou and
all this people, into the land, which I give them.
1:3 Every spot on which ye shall tread I will give it to you, as I said
1:4 The wilderness and Antilibanus, as far as the great river, the river
Euphrates, and as far as the extremity of the sea; your costs shall be
from the setting of the sun.
1:5 Not a man shall stand against you all the days of thy life; and as I
was with Moses, so will I also be with thee, and I will not fail thee,
or neglect thee.
1:6 Be strong and 'quit thyself like a man, for thou shalt divide the
land to this people, which I sware to give to your fathers.
1:7 Be strong, therefore, and quit thyself like a man, to observe and do
as Moses my servant commanded thee; and thou shalt not turn therefrom to
the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest be wise in whatsoever
thou mayest do.
1:8 And the book of this law shall not depart out of thy mouth, and thou
shalt meditate in it day and night, that thou mayest know how to do all
the things that are written [in it]; then shalt thou prosper, and make
thy ways prosperous, and then shalt thou be wise.
1:9 Lo! I have commanded thee; be strong and courageous, be not cowardly
nor fearful, for the Lord thy God is with thee in all places whither
1:10 And Joshua commanded the scribes of the people, saying,
1:11 Go into the midst of the camp of the people, and command the
people, saying, Prepare provisions; for yet three days and ye shall go
over this Jordan, entering in to take possession of the land, wich the
Lord God of your fathers gives to you.
1:12 And to Ruben, and to Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasse, Joshua
1:13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded
you, saying, the Lord your God has caused you to rest, and has given you
1:14 Let your wives and your children and your cattle dwell in the land,
which he has given you; and ye shall go over well armed before your
brethren, every one of you who is strong; and ye shall fight on their
1:15 until the Lord your God shall have given your brethren rest, as
also to you, and they also shall have inherited the land, which the Lord
your God gives them; then ye shall depart each one to his inheritance,
which Moses gave you beyond Jordan eastward.
1:16 And they answered Joshua and said, We will do all things which thou
commandest us, and we will go to every place whither thou shalt send us.
1:17 Whereinsoever we hearkened to Moses we will hearken to thee; only
let the Lord our God be with thee, as he was with Moses.
1:18 And whosoever shall disobey thee, and whosoever shall not hearken
to thy words as thou shalt command him, let him die; but be thou strong
1:1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to
pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister,
1:2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan,
thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even
to the children of Israel.
1:3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I
given unto you, as I said unto Moses.
1:4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the
river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea
toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.
1:5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of
thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail
thee, nor forsake thee.
1:6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou
divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to
1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to
do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn
not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper
whithersoever thou goest.
1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou
shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do
according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy
way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not
afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee
whithersoever thou goest.
1:10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,
1:11 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you
victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in
to possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth you to possess it.
1:12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of
Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,
1:13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded
you, saying, The LORD your God hath given you rest, and hath given you
1:14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the
land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before
your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valor, and help them;
1:15 Until the LORD have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you,
and they also have possessed the land which the LORD your God giveth
them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy
it, which Moses the LORD's servant gave you on this side Jordan toward
1:16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we
will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.
1:17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we
hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with
1:18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will
not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be
put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.
