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.

In sense it is simply encouraging you to be strong and have faith in the Lord do not be afraid in doing things that are possible because your Lord thou God is with thee.

Gail's Joshua Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 7/02/2014, 2:39am...

this is a inspiring veres, one thing we should know is that the lord never leave us we leave him,we can always stand asure of the lord strength so long as we stay connented to him.


Oye Olayinka's Joshua Chapter 1 comment on 6/21/2014, 9:51pm...

The Rubenites, the Gadites and the half tribe of Manasseh kept their promise. Though they had got their inheritance before others, they did not change their minds. The men of war left their families behind to help their brethren get their own inheritance too through wars. It is good to keep our promise no matter what.

Abiodun Kudayisi's Joshua Chapter 1 comment about verse 7 on 5/04/2014, 6:16pm...

A charge by God to prepare Joshua 's Mind that except he is very courageous,the children of Israel 's act will definately cause him not to observe all that God commanded him as in the case of Aaron when Moses tarried before the LORD see Exodus 32 1 6 .Joshua 1 7 can also be explained in the light of Matthew 24 12 13.Except you are very courageous to do all that is written in the Holy scriptures,your Love will definately grow or wax cold by the attitude of Men even from those in the household of faith but he that is very courageous and focused and that will not commit himself unto men like the Lord Jesus John 2 24 ,such will be able to endure unto the end and be saved.


Ola Mccullough's Joshua Chapter 1 comment on 5/02/2014, 12:28pm...

Our Father God will be with me at all times


MockingBird's Joshua Chapter 1 comment about verse 9 on 4/07/2014, 5:40am...

To be dismayed is to have seen or been through a thing that has so disheartened you that you do not want to go near that again or even have to go through that thing again if your confronted with it again. The Lord says to be strong and courageous for He is with you withersoever you go. He is there to help you along. Believe and Trust Him to get you through.We do not have to fear.That does not mean that if your facing a sin and you yield to it that will ok it.
