Joshua Becomes the Leader of Israel

Moses, the Sovereign Lord’s servant, was dead. So the Lord spoke to Joshua, the son of Nun, who had been the assistant of Moses. The Lord said, “My servant Moses is dead. Now you must lead Israel across the Jordan River into the land I’m giving to all of you.

Wherever you go, I’ll give you that land, as I promised Moses. It will reach from the Southern Desert to the Lebanon Mountains in the north, and to the northeast as far as the great Euphrates River. It will include the land of the Hittites, and the land from here at the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea on the west.

Joshua, I will always be with you and help you as I helped Moses, and no one will ever be able to defeat you. Long ago I promised the ancestors of Israel that I would give this land to their descendants. So be strong and brave, be very courageous! Be careful to do everything my servant Moses taught you.

Never stop reading The Book of the Law that he gave you.

Day and night you must think about what it says. If you obey it completely, you and Israel will be able to take this land. You will find great success and be prosperous in everything you do when you observe the Book of the Law. I’ve commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t ever be afraid or discouraged! I am the Lord your God, and I will be there to help you wherever you go.”

Based on Joshua Chapter 1, verses 1 through 9
