“Joshua,” the Lord said, “have the priests come up from the Jordan and bring the chest with them.” So Joshua went over to the priests and told them what the Lord had said. And as soon as the priests carried the chest past the highest place that the floodwaters of the Jordan had reached, the river flooded its banks again. That’s how the Lord showed the Israelites that Joshua was their leader. For the rest of Joshua’s life, they respected him as they had respected Moses.
That day the Lord ·made Joshua great [honored/exalted Joshua] in the ·opinion [L eyes] of all the Israelites. They ·respected [revered; stood in awe of] Joshua all his life, just as they had ·respected [revered; stood in awe of] Moses.
In that day the Lord magnified Joshua before all Israel, that they should dread him, as they dreaded Moses, while he lived yet. (On that day the Lord magnified Joshua before all Israel, so that they would fear him, like they had feared Moses/so that they would revere him, like they had revered Moses, while he was yet alive.)
