“ ‘Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them – the children of Israel.” (Joshua 1:2 NKJV)
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed (discouraged), for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 NKJV)

“…Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed…” (Joshua 1:9 NKJV)
