Be Strong and of a Good Courage - Joshua 1

Joshua 1:1 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’ minister, saying

Joshua 1:2 Moses 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. 

Joshua 1:3 Every place that  the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto  you, as I said unto Moses. 

Joshua 1:4 From the wilderness and  this 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. 

Joshua 1:5 There  shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of  thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will  not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 

Joshua 1:6 Be 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. 

Joshua 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that  thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which  Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the  right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper  whithersoever thou goest. 

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall  not depart out of thy mouth; but thou 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. 

Joshua 1:9  Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good  courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the  LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.  


Joshua 1:10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the  people, saying, 

Joshua 1:11 Pass through the host, and command  the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within 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.  

Joshua 1:12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to  half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying, 

Joshua 1:13  Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD  commanded you, saying, The LORD your God hath given  you rest, and hath given you this land. 

Joshua 1:14 Your wives,  your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land  which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass  before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour,  and help them; 

Joshua 1:15 Until the LORD have given your  brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have  possessed the land which the LORD your God giveth them:  then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and  enjoy it, which Moses the LORD’S servant gave you on this  side Jordan toward the sunrising.  

Joshua 1:16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou  commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest  us, we will go. 

Joshua 1:17 According as we hearkened unto  Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the  LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses. 

Joshua 1:18  Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy  commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all  that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be  strong and of a good courage.  KJV
