約書亞記 1

主對約書亞的吩咐

1耶和華的僕人摩西死了以後,耶和華對摩西的助手——嫩的兒子約書亞說: 「我的僕人摩西已經死了,現在你和全體以色列人要準備渡過約旦河,到我要賜給你們的地方去。 我已把你們腳掌將踏之地都賜給了你們,正如我對摩西的應許。 從南部的曠野直到北部的黎巴嫩,從東部的幼發拉底大河直到西部的地中海,包括赫人居住的全境,都將是你們的領土。 在你有生之年,沒有人能夠抵擋你。過去我怎樣與摩西同在,也必照樣與你同在,我必不離開你,也不丟棄你。 你要剛強勇敢,因為你要帶領這些人佔領我起誓賜給他們祖先的土地。 你只要剛強勇敢,謹遵我僕人摩西所吩咐你的一切律法,毫不偏離,就可以無往不利。 你要常常誦讀這律法書,晝夜不斷地思想,以便謹遵律法書上的一切指示。這樣,你必亨通、順利。 我再次吩咐你,要剛強勇敢!不要害怕,也不要灰心,因為你無論走到哪裡,你的上帝耶和華必與你同在。」

10 於是,約書亞吩咐民眾的首領說: 11 「你們要走遍全營,吩咐大家預備好食物。因為三天之內,你們就要過約旦河,去佔領你們的上帝耶和華賜給你們的土地。」

12 約書亞又對呂便支派、迦得支派和瑪拿西半個支派的人說: 13 「你們要牢記耶和華的僕人摩西吩咐你們的話,他說你們的上帝耶和華要把約旦河東面的土地賜給你們,讓你們安居。 14 你們的妻子兒女和牲畜可以留在約旦河東岸摩西分給你們的土地上,但你們當中所有的勇士要帶著兵器先過約旦河,幫助你們的弟兄。 15 要等到你們的上帝耶和華使你們的弟兄像你們一樣得到祂所賜的土地,安居以後,你們才可以回到約旦河東,在耶和華的僕人摩西分給你們的土地上定居。」 16 他們回答約書亞說:「凡你命令我們的,我們一定遵行。無論你派我們去哪裡,我們一定去。 17 我們在一切的事上怎樣服從摩西,也必照樣服從你,願你的上帝耶和華與你同在,像與摩西同在一樣。 18 任何人違抗你的命令,不照你的吩咐去做,都要被處死。你要剛強勇敢!」

Joshua 1

God’s Charge to Joshua

1Now it came about after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ [a]servant, saying, “Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon, even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and as far as the Great Sea toward the setting of the sun will be your territory. No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous; [b]be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may [c]have success wherever you go. This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may [d]be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will [e]have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua Assumes Command

10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11 “Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, saying, ‘Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you are to cross this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you, to possess it.’”

12 To the Reubenites and to the Gadites and to the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua [f]said, 13 “Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, ‘The Lord your God gives you rest and will give you this land.’ 14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle shall remain in the land which Moses gave you beyond the Jordan, but you shall cross before your brothers in battle array, all your valiant warriors, and shall help them, 15 until the Lord gives your brothers rest, as He gives you, and they also possess the land which the Lord your God is giving them. Then you shall return to [g]your own land, and possess [h]that which Moses the servant of the Lord gave you beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise.”

16 They answered Joshua, saying, “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 Anyone who rebels against your [i]command and does not obey your words in all that you command him, shall be put to death; only be strong and courageous.”
