DEUTERONOMY 31:6

Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be affrighted at them; for Hashem thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. DEUTERONOMY 31:6 (The Israel Bible™)

In this verse, Moses encourages Joshua to be “strong and courageous” and to “fear not” in settling the Land of Israel. Though the battle for Israel might not be easy, it is well worth the fight. Three thousand years later, Joshua’s spiritual heirs can be found among the ranks of the Israel Defense Force, men and women who demonstrate strength and courage everyday in serving their country and their nation. “Fear Not” is the most commonly used phrase in the Bible as God is constantly reminding the People that he is their protector and defender.
