THE BOOK OF
Joshua ordered to cross Jordan
1:1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of Yehovah it
came to pass, that Yehovah spoke to Yeshua the son of Nun, Moses'
1:2 Moses my servant is dead ; now rise
up, cross over this Jordan, you, and all this people, to the land
which I do give to them, [even] to the sons of Israel.
1:3 Every place on which your foot shall tread, I have given it
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 toward the
sitting sun, shall be your border.
1:5 There shall not any man be able to stand before you all the
days of your life as I was with Moses, [so] I will be with you I will not fail you, nor forsake you.
1:6 Be strong and of a brave for you shall cause
this people to inherit the land, which I swore to their fathers
to give them.
1:7 Only be you strong and very brave, that you may observe
to do according to all the Torah, which Moses my servant commanded you. Do turn not from it [to]
the right [to] the left, that you may act wisely wherever you go.
1:8 This book of the Torah shall not depart out of your mouth ; but you shall
meditate on it day and night, that you may be on guard to do
according to all that is written in it. For then you shall prosper your way, and
then you shall act wisely.
1:9 Have not I commanded you? Be strong and brave ; be not
afraid, or discouraged for Yehovah your God [is] with you in all
[places] where you go.
Joshua Prepares the people
1:10 Then Yeshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,
1:11 Pass through the camp, and tell the people, saying,
Prepare food for you. For within three days ya'll shall
pass over this Jordan, to go
in to possess the land, which Yehovah your God gives you to
1:12 And Yeshua spoke to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites,
and to half the tribe of Manasseh, saying,
1:13 Remember the word which Moses the
servant of Yehovah commanded you, saying, Yehovah your God has
given you rest, and has given you this land.
1:14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall
remain in the land which Moses gave you beyond the Jordan. But
ya'll shall cross over armed before your brothers, all the mighty
warriors, and help them;
1:15 Until Yehovah has given your brothers rest, as [he has
given] you, and they also have possessed the land which Yehovah your God gives them then ya'll shall return to the
land of your possession, and possess it, which Moses the servant
of Yehovah gave you beyond the Jordan toward the rising of the
1:16 And they answered Yeshua, saying, All that you
commanded us we will do, and everywhere you send us, we will go.
1:17 According to all we heard from Moses,
so will we listen to you. Surely Yehovah your God is with you, as he was with Moses.
1:18 Whoever rebels against your mouth, and will not listen
to your commands in all that you say to him, he shall be put to
death. Only, be strong and brave.
