1 Nowe after the death of Moses the seruant of the Lord, it came to passe, that the Lord spake vnto Ioshua the sonne of Nun, Moses minister, saying,

2 Moses my seruant is dead: now therefore arise, goe ouer this Iordan, thou, and all this people, vnto the land which I doe giue to them, euen to the children of Israel.

3 Euery place that the sole of your foote shall tread vpon, that haue I giuen vnto you, as I said vnto Moses.

4 From the wildernesse and this Lebanon, euen vnto the great Riuer, the riuer Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and vnto the great sea, toward the going downe of the Sunne, shalbe your coast.

5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the dayes of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not faile thee, nor forsake thee.

6 Bee strong, and of a good courage: for vnto this people shalt thou diuide for an inheritance the land which I sware vnto their fathers to giue them.

7 Onely bee thou strong, and very courageous, that thou mayest obserue to doe according to all the Law, which Moses my seruant commaunded thee: turne not from it to the right hand, or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whither soeuer thou goest.

8 This booke of the Law shal not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest obserue to doe according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt haue good successe.

9 Haue not I commanded thee? be strong, and of a good courage, bee not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee, whither soeuer thou goest.

10 Then Ioshua commanded the Officers of the people, saying,

11 Passe through the hoste, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals: for within three dayes ye shal passe ouer this Iordan, to goe in to possesse the land which the Lord your God giueth you, to possesse it.

12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to halfe the tribe of Manasseh, spake Ioshua, saying,

13 Remember the word which Moses the seruant of the Lord commanded you, saying, The Lord your God hath giuen you rest, and hath giuen you this land:

14 Your wiues, your litle ones, and your cattell shall remaine in the lande which Moses gaue you on this side Iordan; but ye shall passe before your brethren armed, all the mightie men of valour, and helpe them:

15 Untill the Lord haue giuen your brethren rest, as he hath giuen you, and they also haue possessed the lande which the Lord your God giueth them: then yee shall returne vnto the land of your possession, and enioy it, which Moses the Lords seruant gaue you on this side Iordan toward the Sunne rising.

16 And they answered Ioshua, saying, All that thou commandest vs, we will doe, and whither soeuer thou sendest vs, we will goe.

17 According as we hearkened vnto Moses in all things, so will we hearken vnto thee: onely the Lord thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.

18 Whosoeuer he be that doth rebell against thy commandement, and will not hearken vnto thy words, in all that thou commandest him, he shall bee put to death: onely be strong, and of a good courage.

what I got from Joshua is that Gods will is never changind. Trust God only as you go through out the journey of life.


Mtha's Joshua Chapter 1 comment about verse 3 on 2/03/2015, 8:28pm...

God was promising Joshua that everything he claim on his name will be given to him he must not worry about,and God is not a man to lie he always keep his promises must trust his word nothing els.


Christine Awah ndumaawah's Joshua Chapter 1 comment on 2/03/2015, 5:09am...

Primarily I see an element of interpreting other 's dreams for yours to be realized. Joshua was Moses ' Minister. I am also adviced not to let the Word depart from you if you have to prosper and have good success.


Wendysanfod's Joshua Chapter 1 comment on 1/20/2015, 9:00am...

Meditate on his word daily


SHERRY's Joshua Chapter 1 comment on 1/19/2015, 12:37pm...

The WORD of GOD standeth sure and He wants us to be certain that His WORD cannot fail, He said as he was with Moses so he will be with thee, he will not fail thee nor forsake thee, so we need not fear nor be discourage, but eat this WORD night and day till we become it.


GRACE's Joshua Chapter 1 comment about verse 3 on 12/12/2014, 5:24pm...

For me today! Just imagine, every promise in His Word that we take by faith and walk in it will become ours!! Wooooo I 'm so blessed and so are you if you take it and walk in it. Don 't stop walking keep going or you 'll get lulled to sleep in your spiritual life and won 't keep on inheriting the promises.


Joni G's Joshua Chapter 1 comment on 12/09/2014, 9:57am...

Amen Winny! How beautifully said! I like verse 16 too. How more blessed we would be if we all obeyed the Word, meditated on it, lived it. We would feel more rested in Christ!


Winny ndlovu's Joshua Chapter 1 comment about verse 8 on 12/06/2014, 4:29pm...

If you meditate on something you consistently think about it. God wants us to capture his word and live it , feel it , walk with it and live by it.The word of God the bible is every Christian 's encyclopedia
