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

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!”
