SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:7 Solamente te esfuerces, y seas muy valiente, para que guardes y hagas conforme a toda mi ley, que Moisés, mi siervo, te mandó; que no te apartes de ella ni a diestra ni a siniestra, para que seas prosperado en todas las cosas que emprendieres.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 1:7 Verse 7. Only be thou strong, and very courageous] iscue oun, kai andrizou sfodra. - Sept. Be strong therefore, and play the man to the uttermost. Though God had promised him that no man should be able to stand before him, yet it was on condition that he should use all his military skill, and avail himself to the uttermost of all the means, natural and providential, which God should place within his reach. God will not have them who refuse to help themselves.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. Only be thou strong, and very courageous , etc.] For though Joshua was a man of valour and courage, as appears by his war with Amalek, yet there was need of this exhortation, and of repeating it, since he was to engage with a people more and mightier than those with him, and who dwelt in strong and fortified places, and had been preparing for some time, having had notice, and were in expectation of the Israelites’ attempt upon them: that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law which Moses my servant commanded thee ; not only as a private man obliged to observe the whole law, and act according to it in all things; though no mere man is capable of it, only Joshua’s antitype, who is the end of it for righteousness to all that believe, having fulfilled it in all respects; but as the supreme magistrate under God, who was to see that the law was obeyed by the people in all things, and particularly as the general of the army, who was to observe to do what had been ordered, with respect to the Canaanites, (see Deuteronomy 7:1-5); turn not from it [to] the right hand or [to] the left : from the law, by adding to it, or taking from it; so Ben Gersom explains it, “turning to the right hand is, when any adds to its words; and turning to the left hand, when he diminishes from them;” or “from him” f10 , that is, from Moses; from his good way, as Kimchi; though he adds, or else from the book of the law; for though he does not mention the book, he does the law; so Ben Melech: that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest ; succeed in every battle he engaged in; it would be well if generals of armies would observe this; the way to obtain victory over enemies being to be observant of the laws of God themselves, and to take care that they be observed by the soldiers under their command: or “that thou mayest act wisely” f11 ; the word of God furnishing out instruction to men in every station of life, (see Luke 3:10-14).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 5-9 - Joshua is to make the law of God his rule. He is charged to meditat therein day and night, that he might understand it. Whatever affairs of this world we have to mind, we must not neglect the one thing needful All his orders to the people, and his judgments, must be according to the law of God. Joshua must himself be under command; no man's dignit or dominion sets him above the law of God. He is to encourage himsel with the promise and presence of God. Let not the sense of thine ow infirmities dishearten thee; God is all-sufficient. I have commanded called, and commissioned thee to do it, and will be sure to bear the out in it. When we are in the way of duty, we have reason to be stron and very bold. Our Lord Jesus, as Joshua here, was borne up under his sufferings by a regard to the will of God, and the commandment from his Father.
