Joshua 1


1:1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, it
 came to pass, that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun,
 Moses's minister, saying,
1:2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this
 Jordan, thou, and all this people, to 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 to you, as I said to Moses.
1:4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even to the great
 river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and
 to the great sea towards the setting of the sun, shall be your
 border.
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 to this people shalt
 thou divide for an inheritance the land which I swore to their
 fathers to give them.
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 in it 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 provisions; 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, spoke 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 this land.
1:14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle shall remain
 in the land which Moses gave you on this side of Jordan; but ye
 shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of
 valor, and help them;
1:15 Until the LORD shall 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 to the land
 of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD'S
 servant gave you on this side of Jordan towards the sun-rising.
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 to Moses in all things, so will
 we hearken to thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he
 was with Moses.
1:18 Every one that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will
 not hearken to thy words in all that thou commandest him, shall
 be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.
