Joshua i

Joshua Nun ii

1 And it was, after death of Moses, servant of Yehvah, so Yehvah said to Joshua, son of Nun, Moses' servant, saying, 2 “Moses my servant is dead. And now, arise and go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to sons of Israel. 3 Every place that the sole of your foot treads on it, to you iii I give it; just as I spoke to Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon and unto the great river, river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea. The going in of the sun will be your border. 5 No man shall stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, I will be with you. I will not forsake you nor leave you. 6 Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give to them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous to be careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it right or left, so that you may prosper in everywhere you go. 8 The book of this law shall not depart from your mouth. And you shall meditate in it by day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your ways prosperous and then you shall succeed. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid nor be dismayed, for Yehvah your Gods is with you in everywhere you go.”

10 And Joshua commanded the officers of the people saying, 11 “Pass through in the midst of the camp and command the people saying, 'Prepare for yourselves provision, for in yet three days you will be crossing this Jordan to go in to possess the land that Yehvah your Gods is giving to you to possess it.”

12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of the Manasseh Joshua spoke saying, 13 “Remember the word that Moses, servant of Yehvah, commanded you saying, 'Yehvah your Gods is giving you rest, and he will give to you this land. 14 Your women, your little ones, and your livestock shall dwell in the land that Moses gave to you over the Jordan. And you shall cross over armed before your brethren all the mighty men of valor and you shall help them, 15 until Yehvah gives your brethren rest, as you; and they also possess the land which Yehvah your Gods gives to them. And you shall return to the land of your possession, and you shall possess what Moses, servant of Yehvah, gave to you over the Jordan toward the rising of the sun.”

16 And they answered Joshua saying, “All that you command us we will do, and to all that you send us we will go. 17 According to all that we listened to Moses, just as we listened to him. Only, Yehvah your Gods be with you, just as he was with Moses. 18 Any man who rebels against your mouth and does not hear your words to all that you have commanded him, shall be put to death. Only be strong and courageous.”
