NASB — Joshua 1 — KJV

God’s Charge to Joshua

1 Now it came about after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ Iservant, saying, 2 “Moses aMy servant is dead; now therefore arise, bcross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. 3 aEvery place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses. 4 aFrom the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory. 5 aNo man will [be able to] stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; bI will not fail you or forsake you. 6 aBe strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous; Iabe careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may IIhave success wherever you go. 8 aThis book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may Ibe careful to do according to all that is written in it; bfor then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will IIhave success. 9 Have I not commanded you? aBe strong and courageous! bDo not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
