I have also provided timber and stone, and you may add to them.…

be strong

Deuteronomy 31:7,8
And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it…

Joshua 1:6-9,18
Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them…









(13) Then shalt thou prosper.--The verse makes it quite clear that obedience was an indispensable condition to the full realisation of the promise. (Comp. 1Chronicles 22:10 with the actual after-course of history.) Yet the word of the Lord does not return unto Him void; and if the earthly dynasty of David came to an end through disobedience, in due time was born an heir of David and Solomon, who is at this day the Lord of a spiritual dominion which will endure throughout the ages.

If thou takest heed to fulfil.--Literally, if thou keep to do the statutes and judgments: language which is obviously a reminiscence of Deuteronomy. (Comp. Deuteronomy 7:11; Deuteronomy 11:32.)

Be strong, and of good courage.--Or, Be stout and staunch! a frequent phrase in Joshua (1Chronicles 1:7, &c.).

Dread not, nor be dismayed.--So Deuteronomy 1:21; Deuteronomy 31:8; Joshua 1:9. . . .

Verse 13. - The references to olden time, and the pointed reference to Moses, must be regarded as emphatic. In 1 Chronicles 28:20 we find the additional words, "and do it," inserted after the animated and intensely earnest exhortation, Be strong, and of good courage. This inspiriting summons was no new one. It was probably already hallowed in the name of religious language, and would be often quoted (Deuteronomy 4:1; Deuteronomy 31:5-8; Joshua 1:5-9).
