Joshua 1:1-18

1 And it came to pass after the death of Moses, that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, the minister of Moses, saying, 2 Moses My servant is dead; now then arise, go over the Jordan, you and all this people, into the land which I give them. 3 Every spot on which you shall tread I will give it to you, as I said to Moses. 4 The wilderness and Lebanon, as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, and as far as the extremity of the sea; your coasts shall be from the setting of the sun. 5 Not a man shall stand against you all the days of your life; and as I was with Moses, so will I also be with you, and I will not fail you, or neglect you. 6 Be strong and of good courage, for you shall divide the land to this people, which I swore to give to your fathers. 7 Be strong, therefore, and very courageous, to observe and do as Moses My servant commanded you; and you shall not turn from there to the right hand or to the left, that you may be wise in whatsoever you may do. 8 And the Book of this Law shall not depart from your mouth, and you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may know how to do all the things that are written in it; then shall you prosper, and make your ways prosperous, and then shall you be wise. 9 Behold, I have commanded you; be strong and courageous, be not cowardly nor fearful, for the Lord your God is with you in all places in which you go. 10 And Joshua commanded the scribes of the people, saying, 11 Go into the midst of the camp of the people, and command the people, saying, Prepare provisions; for yet three days and you shall go over this Jordan, entering in to take possession of the land, which the Lord God of your fathers gives to you. 12 And to Reuben, and to Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, 13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, the Lord your God has caused you to rest, and has given you this land. 14 Let your wives and your children and your cattle dwell in the land, which He has given you; and you shall go over well armed before your brothers, everyone of you who is strong; and you shall fight on their side; 15 until the Lord your God shall have given your brothers rest, as also to you, and they also shall have inherited the land, which the Lord your God gives them; then you shall depart each one to his inheritance, which Moses gave you beyond the Jordan, eastward. 16 And they answered Joshua and said, We will do all things which you commanded us, and we will go to every place that you shall send us. 17 Just as we hearkened to Moses, we will hearken to you; only let the Lord our God be with you, as He was with Moses. 18 And whoever shall disobey you, and whoever shall not hearken to your words as you shall command him, let him die; but be strong and courageous.

1 Kings 2:10

10 And David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the City of David.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 In a place of green grass, there He has made me dwell; He has nourished me by the water of rest. 3 He has restored my soul; He has guided me into the paths of righteousness, for His name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You have prepared a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; and Your cup cheers me like the best wine. 6 Your mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Psalms 90:12

12 And who knows how to number his days because of the fear of Your wrath? So manifest Your right hand, and those that are instructed in wisdom in the heart.

Isaiah 66:1-24

1 Thus says the Lord: Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool; what kind of a house will you build for Me? And of what kind is to be the place of My rest? 2 For all these things are Mine, says the Lord; and to whom will I have respect, but to the humble and meek, and the man that trembles at My words? 3 But the transgressor that sacrifices a calf to Me, is as he that kills a dog; and he that offers fine flour, as one that offers swine's blood; he that gives frankincense for a memorial, is as a blasphemer. Yet they have chosen their own ways, and their soul has delighted in their abominations. 4 I also will choose their mockeries, and will recompense their sins upon them; because I called them, and they did not hearken to Me; I spoke, and they heard not; and they did evil before Me, and chose the things in which I did not delight. 5 Hear the words of the Lord, you that tremble at His word; speak, our brethren, to them that hate you and abominate you, that the name of the Lord may be glorified, and may appear their joy; but they shall be ashamed. 6 A voice of a cry from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the Lord rendering recompense to His adversaries. 7 Before she that travailed has brought forth, before the birth pains came on, she escaped it and brought forth a male. 8 Who has heard such a thing? And who has seen after this manner? Has the earth travailed in one day? Or has even a nation been born at once, that Zion has travailed, and brought forth her children? 9 But I have raised this expectation, yet you have not remembered Me, says the Lord; behold, have not I made the bearing and barren woman? Says your God. 10 Rejoice, O Jerusalem, and all you that love her hold in her a general assembly; rejoice greatly with her, all that now mourn over her; 11 that you may feed and be satisfied with the consolation of her bosom; that you may drink deeply, and delight yourselves with the abundance of her glory. 12 For thus says the Lord: Behold, I turn toward them as a river of peace, and as a torrent bringing upon them in a flood the glory of the Gentiles; their children shall be borne upon the shoulders, and comforted on the knees. 13 As if his mother should comfort one, so will I also comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. 14 And you shall see, and your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall thrive like grass; and the hand of the Lord shall be known to them that fear Him, and He shall threaten the disobedient. 15 For behold, the Lord will come as fire, and His chariots as a storm, to render His vengeance with wrath, and His rebuke with a flame of fire. 16 For with the fire of the Lord all the earth shall be judged, and all flesh with His sword; many shall be slain by the Lord. 17 They that sanctify themselves and purify themselves in the gardens, and eat swine's flesh in the porches, and the abominations, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, says the Lord. 18 And I know their works and their imagination. I am going to gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see My glory. 19 And I will leave a sign upon them, and I will send forth them that have escaped of them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, Lud, Mosoch, and to Tubal, and to Greece, and to the isles afar off, to those who have not heard of My name, nor seen My glory; and they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles. 20 And they shall bring your brethren out of all nations for a gift to the Lord with horses, and chariots, in litters drawn by mules with awnings, to the holy city Jerusalem, said the Lord, as though the children of Israel should bring their sacrifices to Me with psalms into the house of the Lord. 21 And I will take of them priests and Levites, says the Lord. 22 For as the new heaven and the new earth, which I make, remain before Me, says the Lord, so shall your seed and your name continue. 23 And it shall come to pass from month to month, and from Sabbath to Sabbath, that all flesh shall come to worship before Me in Jerusalem, says the Lord. 24 And they shall go forth, and see the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against Me; for their worm shall not die, and their fire shall not be quenched; and they shall be a spectacle to all flesh.

John 5:28-29

28 Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming in which all those in the tombs will hear His voice 29 and shall come forth--those who have done good, to a resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to a resurrection of condemnation.

Joshua 4:1-7

1 And when the people had completely passed over the Jordan, the Lord spoke to Joshua, saying, 2 Take men from the people, one of each tribe, 3 and charge them; and you shall take out of the midst of the Jordan twelve fit stones, and having carried them across together with yourselves, place them in your camp, where you shall encamp for the night. 4 And Joshua, having called twelve men of distinction among the children of Israel, one of each tribe, 5 said to them, Advance before me in the presence of the Lord into the midst of the Jordan, and each having taken up a stone from there, let him carry it on his shoulders, according to the number of the twelve tribes of Israel, 6 that these may be to you continually for an appointed sign, that when your son asks you in the future, saying, What are these stones to us? 7 then you may explain to your son, saying, The River Jordan was dried up from before the ark of the covenant of the Lord of the whole earth, when it crossed over; and these stones shall be for a memorial for you for the children of Israel forever.
