The Book of Jasher
|LXXXVIII:1 And it was after the death of Moses that Yehuveh said to Joshua the son of Nun,
LXXXVIII:2 Rise up and pass the Jordan to the land which I have given to the children of
Israel, and thou shalt make the children of Israel inherit the land.
LXXXVIII:3 Every place upon which the sole of your feet shall tread shall belong to you,
from the wilderness of Lebanon unto the great river the river of Perath shall be your
LXXXVIII:4 No man shall stand up against thee all the days of thy life; as I was with Moses,
so will I be with thee, only be strong and of good courage to observe all the law which
Moses commanded thee, turn not from the way either to the right or to the left, in order
that thou mayst prosper in all that thou doest.
LXXXVIII:5 And Joshua commanded the officers of Israel, saying, Pass through the camp and
command the people, saying, Prepare for yourselves provision, for in three days more you
will pass the Jordan to possess the land.
LXXXVIII:6 And the officers of the children of Israel did so, and they commanded the people
and they did all that Joshua had commanded.
LXXXVIII:7 And Joshua sent two men to spy out the land of Jericho, and the men went and
spied out Jericho.
LXXXVIII:8 And at the end of seven days they came to Joshua in the camp and said to him,
Yehuveh has delivered the whole land into our hand, and the inhabitants thereof are melted
with fear because of us.
LXXXVIII:9 And it came to pass after that, that Joshua rose up in the morning and all Israel
with him, and they journeyed from Shittim, and Joshua and all Israel with him passed the
Jordan; and Joshua was eighty-two years old when he passed the Jordan with Israel.
LXXXVIII:10 And the people went up from Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and
they encamped in Gilgal at the eastern corner of Jericho.
