SEV Biblia, Chapter 27:18 Y el SEÑOR dijo a Moisés: Toma a Josué hijo de Nun, varón en el cual hay espíritu, y pondrás tu mano sobre él;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 27:18 Verse 18. In whom is the spirit] This must certainly mean the Spirit of God; and because he was endued with this Spirit, therefore he was capable of leading the people. How miserably qualified is that man for the work of God who is not guided and influenced by the Holy Ghost! God never chooses a man to accomplish his designs but that one whom he himself has qualified for the work.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 18. And the Lord said unto Moses , etc.] In answer to his request: take thou Joshua the son of Nun , who had been a servant of his near forty years, and of whose humility, diligence, faithfulness and integrity he had sufficient proof, as well as of his skill and courage in military affairs, particularly at the battle with Amalek, ( Exodus 17:9-13 24:13 33:11): a man in whom is the Spirit : not only in whom is a spirit or soul, which is in every man; but the Spirit of God, and that not only as a spirit of grace and sanctification, which is in every good man; but as a spirit of prophecy, as the Targums of Onkelos and Jonathan; or rather it respects the more than ordinary gifts of the Spirit qualifying him for government, as courage and conduct, wisdom, prudence, and greatness of mind: and lay thine hand upon him ; thereby transferring the government to him, pointing him out to the people as his successor; to show to the children of Israel that he was in his place, as Aben Ezra notes; upon which followed a larger measure of the gifts of the Spirit of God; (see Deuteronomy 34:9).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-23 - Envious spirits do not love their successors; but Moses was not one of these. We should concern ourselves, both in our prayers and in ou endeavours, for the rising generation, that religion may be maintaine and advanced, when we are in our graves. God appoints a successor, eve Joshua; who had signalized himself by his courage in fighting Amalek his humility in ministering to Moses, and his faith and sincerity i witnessing against the report of the evil spies. This man God appoint to succeed Moses; a man in whom is the Spirit, the Spirit of grace. He is a good man, fearing God and hating covetousness, and acting from principle. He has the spirit of government; he is fit to do the wor and discharge the trusts of his place. He has a spirit of conduct an courage; he had also the Spirit of prophecy. That man is not full qualified for any service in the church of Christ, who is destitute of the graces and gifts of the Holy Spirit, whatever human abilities he may possess. And in Joshua's succession we are reminded "that the la was given by Moses," who by reason of our transgression could not brin us to heaven; but "grace and truth came by Jesus Christ," for the salvation of every believer __________________________________________________________________
