SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:5 Solamente que con diligencia os guardéis haciendo el mandamiento y la ley, que Moisés siervo del SEÑOR os mandó: que améis al SEÑOR vuestro Dios, y andéis en todos sus caminos; que guardéis sus mandamientos, y os alleguéis a él, y le sirváis de todo vuestro corazón y de toda vuestra alma.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Joshua 22:5 Verse 5. But take diligent heed, &c.] Let us examine the force of this excellent advice; they must ever consider that their prosperity and continued possession of the land depended on their fidelity and obedience to God; to this they must take diligent heed.
Do the commandment] They must pay the strictest regard to every moral precept.
And the law] They must observe all the rites and ceremonies of their holy religion.
Love the Lord your God] Without an affectionate filial attachment to their Maker, duty would be irksome, grievous, and impossible.
Walk in all his ways] They must not only believe and love, but obey: walk not in your own ways, but walk in those which GOD has pointed out.
Keep his commandments] They must love him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, and their neighbour as themselves.
Cleave unto him] They must be cemented to him, in a union that should never be dissolved.
Serve him] They must consider him as their Master, having an absolute right to appoint them when, where, how, and in what measure they should do his work.
With all your heart] Having all their affections and passions sanctified and united to him.
And with all your soul.] Giving up their whole life to him, and employing their understanding, judgment, and will, in the contemplation and adoration of his perfections; that their love and obedience might increase in proportion to the cultivation and improvement of their understanding.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law , etc.] The ten commandments, and all other laws, both ceremonial and civil: which Moses the servant of the Lord charged you ; in the name of the Lord, to keep and observe: to love the Lord your God ; of which keeping the commands of God is an evidence, and which is the true principle and motive of hearty, sincere, and cheerful obedience to them: and to walk in all his ways ; which he has prescribed, all his ways of worship, paths of duty, faith, truth, holiness, and righteousness: and to keep his commandments ; whether moral, ceremonial, or judicial: whether of natural and moral obligation, or of positive institution: and to cleave unto him ; and not depart from his ways, worship, word, and ordinances: and to serve him with all your heart, and with all your soul : in the most strict and affectionate manner. This advice Joshua thought proper to give them, and inculcate into them, now they were about to leave their brethren, and go on the other side Jordan; where they would be at a distance from the tabernacle, altar, and service of God, and might be under temptation to relinquish it, and set up another form of worship elsewhere.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-9 - Joshua dismisses the tribes with good counsel. Those who have the commandment have it in vain, unless they do the commandment; and it will not be done aright unless we take diligent heed. In particular to love the Lord our God, as the best of beings, and the best of friends and as far as that principle rules in the heart, there will be constan care and endeavour to walk in his ways, even those that are narrow an up-hill. In every instance to keep his commandments. At all times, an in all conditions, with purpose of heart to cleave unto the Lord, an to serve him and his kingdom among men, with all our heart, and with all our soul. This good counsel is given to all; may God give us grac to take it!
