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.

Focus Verses:1:5-9  Joshua was to lead the Israelites following the death of Moses and these are the instructions given to him by the Lord.  How do these verses apply to us today?  We too are to be leaders in this world, set apart, different, and following the instructions of the Lord.  What do these verse mean to you?
