1:13 Commanded you - His charge to you, and your promise to him. Rest - That is, a place of rest, as that word signifies.


Discussion for Joshua 1

  • Barry Graham
    I also believe that the lord was telling Joshua that the same miracles that he work in the presence of Moses that he would also work for him. Example, the children of Israel crossed the Jordan River on dry land (the children of Israel crossed the over the Red Sea on dry land),. Joshua came into the very presence of the lord, (man standing afar off with the sword in his hand).
  • Emmanuel
    Joshua did as God promised and because he even keeps all the command,
  • Marcus
    If one reads the whole book of Joshua you will understand God keep to his promises. Joshua was truely a man of God.
  • Ashley
    God is good. Joshua was told to focus on the lord day and night
  • Mina
    I believe even though Moses was dead, God encourages Joshua that he was capable of leading israel as Moses did. The promise God promise Moses was still in effect, his word is faithful even when Joshua lead the people.
  • Irene123
    To 'Malefu' on Joshua 1:8 -- And to think - they (or rather parents) were 'here' 40 yrs. ago, but only Joshua and Caleb had FAITH in God. And it was only 11 days journey from Mt. Horeb (Sinai) to the land of Canaan. Arrrrrrrrrrrg!!! They saw all the blessings of the Red Sea and Pharoah. I believe it wholeheartedly, but I'll never understand it.
