Joshua 14:7-11

14:7 I was forty years old when Moses, the Lord’s servant, sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy on the land and I brought back to him an honest report. 1  14:8 My countrymen 2  who accompanied 3  me frightened the people, 4  but I remained loyal to the Lord my God. 5  14:9 That day Moses made this solemn promise: 6  ‘Surely the land on which you walked 7  will belong to you and your descendants permanently, 8  for you remained loyal to the Lord your God.’ 14:10 So now, look, the Lord has preserved my life, just as he promised, these past forty-five years since the Lord spoke these words to Moses, during which Israel traveled through the wilderness. Now look, I am today eighty-five years old. 14:11 Today I am still as strong as when Moses sent me out. I can fight and go about my daily activities with the same energy I had then. 9
