约书亚记 1

主对约书亚的吩咐

1耶和华的仆人摩西死了以后,耶和华对摩西的助手——嫩的儿子约书亚说: “我的仆人摩西已经死了,现在你和全体以色列人要准备渡过约旦河,到我要赐给你们的地方去。 我已把你们脚掌将踏之地都赐给了你们,正如我对摩西的应许。 从南部的旷野直到北部的黎巴嫩,从东部的幼发拉底大河直到西部的地中海,包括赫人居住的全境,都将是你们的领土。 在你有生之年,没有人能够抵挡你。过去我怎样与摩西同在,也必照样与你同在,我必不离开你,也不丢弃你。 你要刚强勇敢,因为你要带领这些人占领我起誓赐给他们祖先的土地。 你只要刚强勇敢,谨遵我仆人摩西所吩咐你的一切律法,毫不偏离,就可以无往不利。 你要常常诵读这律法书,昼夜不断地思想,以便谨遵律法书上的一切指示。这样,你必亨通、顺利。 我再次吩咐你,要刚强勇敢!不要害怕,也不要灰心,因为你无论走到哪里,你的上帝耶和华必与你同在。”

10 于是,约书亚吩咐民众的首领说: 11 “你们要走遍全营,吩咐大家预备好食物。因为三天之内,你们就要过约旦河,去占领你们的上帝耶和华赐给你们的土地。”

12 约书亚又对吕便支派、迦得支派和玛拿西半个支派的人说: 13 “你们要牢记耶和华的仆人摩西吩咐你们的话,他说你们的上帝耶和华要把约旦河东面的土地赐给你们,让你们安居。 14 你们的妻子儿女和牲畜可以留在约旦河东岸摩西分给你们的土地上,但你们当中所有的勇士要带着兵器先过约旦河,帮助你们的弟兄。 15 要等到你们的上帝耶和华使你们的弟兄像你们一样得到祂所赐的土地,安居以后,你们才可以回到约旦河东,在耶和华的仆人摩西分给你们的土地上定居。” 16 他们回答约书亚说:“凡你命令我们的,我们一定遵行。无论你派我们去哪里,我们一定去。 17 我们在一切的事上怎样服从摩西,也必照样服从你,愿你的上帝耶和华与你同在,像与摩西同在一样。 18 任何人违抗你的命令,不照你的吩咐去做,都要被处死。你要刚强勇敢!”

Joshua 1

The Lord’s Charge to Joshua

1After the death of Moses the Lord’s servant, the Lord spoke to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ assistant. He said, “Moses my servant is dead. Therefore, the time has come for you to lead these people, the Israelites, across the Jordan River into the land I am giving them. I promise you what I promised Moses: ‘Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you— from the Negev wilderness in the south to the Lebanon mountains in the north, from the Euphrates River in the east to the Mediterranean Sea[a] in the west, including all the land of the Hittites.’ No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you.

“Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua’s Charge to the Israelites

10 Joshua then commanded the officers of Israel, 11 “Go through the camp and tell the people to get their provisions ready. In three days you will cross the Jordan River and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you.”

12 Then Joshua called together the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh. He told them, 13 “Remember what Moses, the servant of the Lord, commanded you: ‘The Lord your God is giving you a place of rest. He has given you this land.’ 14 Your wives, children, and livestock may remain here in the land Moses assigned to you on the east side of the Jordan River. But your strong warriors, fully armed, must lead the other tribes across the Jordan to help them conquer their territory. Stay with them 15 until the Lord gives them rest, as he has given you rest, and until they, too, possess the land the Lord your God is giving them. Only then may you return and settle here on the east side of the Jordan River in the land that Moses, the servant of the Lord, assigned to you.”

16 They answered Joshua, “We will do whatever you command us, and we will go wherever you send us. 17 We will obey you just as we obeyed Moses. And may the Lord your God be with you as he was with Moses. 18 Anyone who rebels against your orders and does not obey your words and everything you command will be put to death. So be strong and courageous!”
