1 After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, the LORD said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, 1 After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, the LORD said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses' aide:
2 "Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land which I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. 2 "Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them--to the Israelites.
3 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, as I promised to Moses. 3 I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses.
4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphra'tes, all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun shall be your territory. 4 Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates--all the Hittite country--to the Great Sea on the west.
5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you. 5 No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
6 Be strong and of good courage; for you shall cause this people to inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 6 "Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them.
