Joshua 1:12-18

Context

1:12 Joshua told the Reubenites, Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh: 1:13 “Remember what Moses the Lord’s servant commanded you. 1  The Lord your God is giving you a place to settle and is handing this land over to you. 2  1:14 Your wives, children and cattle may stay in the land that Moses assigned to you east of the Jordan River. But all you warriors must cross over armed for battle ahead of your brothers. 3  You must help them 1:15 until the Lord gives your brothers a place like yours to settle and they conquer the land the Lord your God is ready to hand over to them. Then you may go back to your allotted land and occupy the land Moses the Lord’s servant assigned you east of the Jordan.” 4 

1:16 They told Joshua, “We will do everything you say. We will go wherever you send us. 1:17 Just as we obeyed 5  Moses, so we will obey you. But 6  may the Lord your God be with you as he was with Moses! 1:18 Any man who rebels against what you say and does not obey all your commands will be executed. 7  But 8  be strong and brave!”

1 tn Heb “remember the word which Moses, the Lord’s servant, commanded you.”

sn This command can be found in Deut 3:18-20. In vv. 13-15 Joshua paraphrases the command, as the third person reference to Moses in v. 14 indicates.

2 tn Heb “is providing rest for you and is giving to you this land.”

sn “This land” refers to the trans-Jordanian lands allotted to these tribes.

3 tn Heb “But you must cross over armed for battle before your brothers, all [you] mighty men of strength.”

4 tn Heb “Then you may return to the land of your possession and possess it, that which Moses, the Lord’s servant, gave to you beyond the Jordan toward the rising of the sun.”

5 tn Heb “listened to.”

6 tn Or “Only.” Here and in v. 18 this word qualifies what precedes (see also v. 7).

7 tn Heb “any man who rebels against your mouth and does not listen to your words, to all which you command us, will be put to death.”

8 tn Or “Only.” Here and in v. 17 this word qualifies what precedes (see also v. 7).
