Joshua 1:8 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth - The law which had already been written by Moses, and from which he and the people were to take all those precepts by which their lives were to be governed. Though there was a copy of the law laid up in the sanctuary, yet this was not sufficient. Joshua must have a copy for himself, and he was to consult it incessantly, that his way might be made prosperous, and that he might have good success.

Those who are obedient to God lack no manner of thing that is good.

It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees
Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so that you may prosper in everything you do.
After Moses finished writing in a book the words of this law from beginning to end,
Afterward, Joshua read all the words of the law--the blessings and the curses--just as it is written in the Book of the Law.
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night.
