Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:1 - After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, the LORD said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide:

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:2 - “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:3 - I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:4 - Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:5 - No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:6 - Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:7 - “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:8 - Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:9 - Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:11 - “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:12 - But to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said,

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:13 - “Remember the command that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you after he said, ‘The LORD your God will give you rest by giving you this land.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:14 - Your wives, your children and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, ready for battle, must cross over ahead of your fellow Israelites. You are to help them

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:15 - 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.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:16 - Then they answered Joshua, “Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:17 - Just as we fully obeyed Moses, so we will obey you. Only may the LORD your God be with you as he was with Moses.

Unchecked Copy BoxJos 1:18 - Whoever rebels against your word and does not obey it, whatever you may command them, will be put to death. Only be strong and courageous!”
