Joshua 1:1-18

1 After the death of Moses, the Lord spoke to Joshua, son of Nave, the lieutenant of Moses, saying, 2 My servant Moses is dead, now therefore arise, and cross the Jordan, thou and all the people, into the land which I give them. 3 Every place, on which you tread with the sole of your feet, I will give you, as I said to Moses. 4 The wilderness, and yonder Antilibanus, to the river, the great river Euphrates, and to the farthest sea, at the setting of the sun, shall be your boundaries. 5 Not a man shall withstand you all the clays of thy life. As I was with Moses, so will I be with thee. I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of good courage; for thou shalt parcel out to this people the land, which I solemnly promised their fathers to give to them. 7 Therefore be strong, and courageous, to watch, and to do as my servant Moses commanded. Thou must not deviate from them, to the right or to the left. That thou mayst clearly understand all that thou art to do: 8 the book of the Law must never be out of thy mouth. Thou must study it day and night, that thou mayst know how to do all that are written. Then shalt thou be prospered; and thou wilt make thy ways prosperous; and then thou shalt have a good understanding. 9 Behold I have commanded thee; be strong and courageous: fear not, nor be dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest. 10 Upon this Joshua gave orders to the officers of the people, saying; 11 Go through the camp of the people, and give them orders, saying, Prepare all necessary provisions; for in three days you are to cross the Jordan, to go in and take possession of the land which the Lord the God of your fathers giveth you. 12 Then Joshua said to Reuben, and Gad, and to the half of the tribe of Manasses, 13 Remember what Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you saying; The Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land. 14 Let your wives, and your children, and your cattle abide in the land which he hath given you; but you, all your able bodied men, well equipt, shall cross over before your brethren, and assist them; 15 until the Lord our God shall give your brethren rest, as well as you; and until they possess the land which the Lord our God giveth them. Then you shall return, every one to his possession, which Moses gave you on the east side of the Jordan. 16 Thereupon they answered and said to Joshua, All that thou commandest we will do. And wherever thou sendest us we will go. 17 As we have hearkened to Moses in all things, so will we hearken to thee. Let but the Lord our God be with thee, as he was with Moses, 18 and whosoever shall disobey thee, and not hearken to all thy commands which thou shalt give him let him be put to death. But be thou strong and courageous.

1 Kings 2:10

10 Then David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David.

Psalms 23:1-6

1 A Psalm by David. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall want nothing. 2 In a verdant pasture he hath fixed my abode. He hath fed me by gently flowing water 3 and restored my soul. He hath led me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 For though I walk amidst the shades of death: I will fear no ills, because thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff have been my comfort. 5 Thou hast spread a table before me; in the presence of them who afflict me. With oil thou hast anointed my head; and thine exhilarating cup is the very best. 6 Thy mercy will surely follow me all the days of my life; and my dwelling shall be in the house of the Lord to length of days.

Psalms 90:12

12 so to number them. Thus make known thy right hand; and them whose hearts are instructed in wisdom.

Isaiah 66:1-24

1 Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth, my footstool: what sort of an house will you build for me? And of what sort shall be the place of my rest? 2 For all these things my hand hath made: and all these things are mine saith the Lord. Upon whom therefore will I look down, but upon him only who is humble and quiet, and who trembleth at my words? 3 As for the wicked man, who sacrificeth to me a young bull: he is one who slayeth a dog: and though he offereth me fine flour: it will be as the blood of swine. Though he offereth incense for a memorial, he is as a blasphemer. As they have chosen their own ways: and their soul hath delighted in their abominations: 4 I also will chuse their delusions, and pay them back their sins. Because I called them and they did not answer; I spake, but they did not listen:;but did that which is evil in my sight, and chose the things in which I did not delight; 5 hear the decisions of the Lord; ye who tremble at his word, say, "O our brethren; [to them who hate you and are abominable, that the name of the Lord may be glorified and appear to their joy, when they shall be ashamed] 6 a sound of screaming from the city! a sound from the temple! the voice of the Lord rendering a recompense to his adversaries! 7 That a woman hath brought forth before she travailed; that before her pangs came on, they are over and a male child born; 8 who hath heard such a thing, or who hath seen the like? Did ever the earth bring forth in a day, or was ever a nation born at once? That Sion should travail and bring forth her children, 9 I myself gave this expectation; yet thou didst not remember me, saith the Lord. Behold did I not make her who beareth; and her who is barren? Said thy God. 10 Rejoice Jerusalem! and sing praises therein, all ye who love her! Be exceedingly joyful with her, all ye who mourn for her! 11 That you may suck and be satisfied from the breast of her consolation; that you may suck and be fed deliciously, at the commencement of her glory. 12 For thus saith the Lord, Behold I will glide to them like a peaceful stream, and like a torrent deluging the glory of nations. Their children shall be carried on shoulders, and shall be dandled on knees. 13 As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you, and in Jerusalem you shall find consolation. 14 And you shall see it, and your heart shall rejoice; and your bones shall flourish like a green herb. And the hand of the Lord will be made known to them who fear him. And it will terrify them who are disobedient. 15 For behold! the Lord will come as a fire, and his chariots as a whirlwind, to execute his vengeance with wrath and his rebuke with flaming fire. 16 For with the fire of the Lord all this land shall be tried, and all flesh with his sword. Many shall be the slain of the Lord! 17 They who consecrate and purify themselves for the gardens, and they who, in the outer courts, eat swine's flesh, and the abominations and the mouse, shall for this be consumed together, said the Lord. 18 As I know their works and their reasoning I am coming to gather together all the nations and the tongues, and they shall come and see my glory. 19 And I will leave among them a sign, and those of them who escape I will send to the nations; to Tharsis and Phud and Lud and Mosach and to Thobel and Greece and to the far distant isles. They who have not heard my name nor seen my glory; even they shall proclaim my glory among the nations; 20 and they shall bring your brethren from all the nations, as a gift for the Lord with horses and chariots, in litters borne by mules with umbrellas over them, to the holy city Jerusalem, said the Lord; as the children of Israel brought up their sacrifices for me with songs of praise to the house of the Lord. 21 And of them I will take priests and Levites, said the Lord. 22 For as the new heaven and the new earth, which I make, shall remain in my presence, saith the Lord; so shall your seed and your name be established. 23 And it shall be, that month after month and sabbath after sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, in Jerusalem, said the Lord. 24 And they shall go forth, and see the carcasses of those men, who 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 Wonder not at this; for a time is coming when all that are in the graves shall hearken to his voice, 29 and come forth; they who have done good, to a resurrection of life, and they who have done evil, to a resurrection of condemnation.

22 Indeed if those days were not shortened, no flesh could escape. But for the sake of the chosen, those days will be shortened.

Joshua 4:1-7

1 And when all the people had entirely crossed the Jordan, the Lord spoke to Joshua, saying, 2 Take men from among the people, one from every tribe, 3 and give them orders. And you shall take up, out of the middle of the Jordan, twelve smooth stones, and carry them with you, and place them in your encampment, wherever you encamp to night. 4 So Joshua called out twelve men of eminent dignity from among the children of Israel, one from every tribe, 5 and said to them, Go on before me in the presence of the Lord, into the middle of the Jordan, and let every one take up thence a stone, and carry it on his shoulders, according to the number of the twelve tribes of Israel; 6 that they may be to you an everlasting memorial; that when thy son shall hereafter ask thee, saying, What are these stones to us? 7 thou mayst explain them to thy son, and say, Because the river Jordan dried up at the presence of the Ark of the covenant of the Lord of the whole earth, when it crossed it, therefore you shall have these stones for an everlasting memorial for the children of Israel.
