Commentary: Moses was gone and it was now up to Joshua to lead the Israelites to victory in the Promised Land.  The Lord reassures the Israelites, once again, that He is and will be with them in their upcoming battles.  Before claiming the Promised Land, the Israelites must once again make themselves pure before the Lord.
