« Deuteronomy 34 | Joshua 1 | Joshua 2 »
God Commissions Joshua 1:1 After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant,
2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel.
3 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.
4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun shall be your territory.
5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you.
6 Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them.
7 Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua Assumes Command10 And Joshua commanded the officers of the people,
11 “Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, ‘Prepare your provisions, for within three days you are to pass over this Jordan to go in to take possession of the land that the Lord your God is giving you to possess.’”
12 And to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh Joshua said,
13 “Remember the word that Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, ‘The Lord your God is providing you a place of rest and will give you this land.’
14 Your wives, your little ones, and your livestock shall remain in the land that Moses gave you beyond the Jordan, but all the men of valor among you shall pass over armed before your brothers and shall help them,
15 until the Lord gives rest to your brothers as he has to you, and they also take possession of the land that the Lord your God is giving them. Then you shall return to the land of your possession and shall possess it, the land that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise.”
16 And they answered Joshua, “All that you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.
17 Just as we obeyed Moses in all things, so we will obey you. Only may the Lord your God be with you, as he was with Moses!
18 Whoever rebels against your commandment and disobeys your words, whatever you command him, shall be put to death. Only be strong and courageous.”

Who Can Stand Before You?To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.76:1 In Judah God is known;his name is great in Israel.
2 His abode has been established in Salem,his dwelling place in Zion.
3 There he broke the flashing arrows,the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah
4 Glorious are you, more majesticthan the mountains full of prey.
5 The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;they sank into sleep;all the men of warwere unable to use their hands.
6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,both rider and horse lay stunned.
7 But you, you are to be feared!Who can stand before youwhen once your anger is roused?
8 From the heavens you uttered judgment;the earth feared and was still,
9 when God arose to establish judgment,to save all the humble of the earth. Selah
10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise you;the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt.
11 Make your vows to the Lord your God and perform them;let all around him bring giftsto him who is to be feared,
12 who cuts off the spirit of princes,who is to be feared by the kings of the earth.
« Proverbs 8 | Proverbs 9 | Proverbs 10 »
The Way of Wisdom9:1 Wisdom has built her house;she has hewn her seven pillars.
2 She has slaughtered her beasts; she has mixed her wine;she has also set her table.
3 She has sent out her young women to callfrom the highest places in the town,
4 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”To him who lacks sense she says,
5 “Come, eat of my breadand drink of the wine I have mixed.
6 Leave your simple ways, and live,and walk in the way of insight.”
7 Whoever corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse,and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.
8 Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you;reprove a wise man, and he will love you.
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser;teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
11 For by me your days will be multiplied,and years will be added to your life.
12 If you are wise, you are wise for yourself;if you scoff, you alone will bear it.
The Way of Folly13 The woman Folly is loud;she is seductive and knows nothing.
14 She sits at the door of her house;she takes a seat on the highest places of the town,
15 calling to those who pass by,who are going straight on their way,
16 “Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”And to him who lacks sense she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet,and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
18 But he does not know that the dead are there,that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.
