Be strong and be courageous; you should not be afraid, and you should not be in dread from their presence,[a] for Yahweh your God is the one going with you; he will not leave you alone and he will not forsake you.”

Then Moses summoned Joshua, and he said to him in the presence of all Israel,[b] “Be strong and be courageous, for you will go with this people into the land that Yahweh swore to their ancestors[c] to give to them, and you will give it to them as an inheritance. Yahweh is the one going before you;[d] he will be with you, and he will not leave you alone, and he will not forsake you; you shall not be afraid, and you shall not be discouraged.”
