“Prosperity”

Joshua 1:1-9

Promises Given:

“….Then you will be prosperous and successful.” This is the only place in the entire Old Testament that these two words are found together. śkl, (“to be successful”) occurs a total of 78 times in the Old Testament meaning: “have insight, understanding, be wise.”

ṣlḥ (“prosper”) occurs sixty-nine times in the Old Testament, and the majority of the time (fifty-nine times) it means “to prosper [or, better, “to succeed”] in one’s endeavors,” almost always because of God’s gracious and ever-present hand.
