Joshua chapter 1

  • 1 After the death of the LORD'S servant Moses, the LORD spoke to Moses' helper, Joshua son of Nun.
    2 He said, "My servant Moses is dead. Get ready now . . . .
    . 5 Joshua, no one will be able to defeat you as long as you live.
    I will be with you as I was with Moses.
    I will always be with you; I will never abandon you.
    6 Be determined and confident, for you will be the leader of these people as they occupy this land which I promised their ancestors.
    7 Just be determined, be confident; and make sure that you obey the whole Law that my servant Moses gave you.
    Do not neglect any part of it and you will succeed wherever you go.
    8 Be sure that the book of the Law is always read in your worship.
    Study it day and night, and make sure that you obey everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
    9 Remember that I have commanded you to be determined and confident!
    Do not be afraid or discouraged, for I, the LORD your God, am with you wherever you go."
