*Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ aminister, saying, 2 bMoses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. 3 cEvery place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, cas I said unto Moses. 4 dFrom the wilderness and ethis Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. 5 fThere shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: gas I was with Moses, so hI will be with thee: iI will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 kBe strong and of a good courage: for ||unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. 7 Only kbe thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, lwhich Moses my servant commanded thee: mturn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest ||prosper whithersoever thou goest. 8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but nthou shalt meditate therein 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. 9 Have not I commanded thee? oBe strong and of a good courage; pbe not afraid, neither qbe thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee rwhithersoever thou goest.
10 Then Joshua commanded sthe officers of the people, saying, 11 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for twithin 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.
