YAH Tells Joshua To Lead Israel Into The Land
1 After YHVH's servant Moses dies, YHVH speaks to Mosesโ€™ aide: JAHshua (son of Nun {Eternity}):
2 [YAH] says, โ€œMy servant Moses lies dead. So you and all your people, pack up. Cross [the] Jordan [river]. Enter the land I'm giving [to] the descendants of Israel.
3 I'm giving you every place on which the sole[s] of your feet tread, as I promised Moses.
4 Your territory comes to extend from the Negev [desert south of Jerusalem] up [north] to [the white mountains of] Lebanon, and [on the east] from the great [Syrian] river Euphrates (including the land of the Hittite {Sons-Of-Terror}) to the great [Mediterranean] sea facing the [Western] setting sun.
5 ๐Ÿ˜‡, no man will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you: I will never fail you, nor forsake you.
6 Strength! Courage! For you will lead My people to possess all the earth I swore to give their forefathers.
Courage = Obedience To YAH's Law
7 You, ๐Ÿ˜‡, be strong and very courageous. Be watchful to do everything in accord with the complete Law [which] Moses my servant commanded you. Never turn from [My] Law to the right hand nor to the left, so that you can prosper wherever you go.
We Christians must live by the righteous principles on which the Mosaic Law is based. But we are not sworn to obey the Sinai code as a contract.
8 ๐Ÿ˜‡, never let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth. Meditate on the Law day and night, so that you can be watchful to do everything written in [My] Law. [Studious obedience] makes your way prosperous. [Lawfulness] gives you wonderful success.
The principles embodied in the Torah form the trunk of the tree of wisdom and knowledge. Without YAH's Word, all knowledge is like severed limbs: dead and rotting.
9 ๐Ÿ˜‡, I command you: Be strong and courageous. Never get terrified. Never be discouraged. For YHVH your Elohim is with you wherever you go.โ€
See awesome Joshua 1:9 song: Be Strong And Courageous (Joshua 1:9).
Joshua Rallies Millions To Cross Enemy Lines
10 JAHshua commands the overseers of [YAH's] people:
11 "Pass through the camp. Command the people [of your tribes], โ€˜Prepare food. For in 3 days you'll [all] cross the Jordan [river from] here, to go in to possess the land YHVH your Elohim gives you as your own.
Ranchers Agree To Obey Joshua & Help Israel
12 To the [Cattle-Barons, (the] Reubenites, the Gadites, and [the eastern] half [of] the tribe of Manasseh), JAHshua says:
Or โ€˜Manasseh, which represents half of Joseph's descendantsโ€™.
13 โ€œRemember [that] YAH's servant Moses commanded you: โ€˜YHVH your Elohim has given you rest. He has granted you this land.โ€™
14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle remain [here] in the land Moses gave you on this [East] side of the Jordan [river]. Meanwhile all you mighty, valiant men bravely pass ahead of your brothers.
Bravely = #2751 staunch, stout. Not armed for fighting. It takes more courage to go into danger unarmed, than armed.
15 You [cattle-barons] must help your brothers until YHVH gives them rest, as [YAH] has given you [rest]. [Stay on the far side of the river] until your brothers also settle the land YHVH your Elohim gives them. Then you return to your own land. [You] enjoy the [property which] YHVH's servant Moses awarded you on this [East] side of the Jordan [river], toward the sunrise.โ€
16 The [Cattle-Barons] answer JAHshua, โ€œWe do everything you command us. Wherever you send us, we go.
17 โ€”We'll listen to you, [just] like we โ€˜fully obeyedโ€™ Moses. [We pray that] YHVH Elohim sticks with you, as He stuck with Moses.
Of course, the Israelites hardly ever obeyed Moses.
18 [We'll] kill anyone who resists your commandments [or] ignores any detail of anything that you tell him! Be strong and courageous!โ€
