Verse 14: On that day the LORD (Josh. 3:7) magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they feared Moses, all the days of his life.
[He magnified Joshua] That is, so that his authority might increase with honor among the people, who willingly yield to those that are greater than themselves, that Divine Providence favors. Just how important it was to the Israelites that Joshua was venerable to them, the great tempests following his death clearly show (Masius).
 Hebrew: בַּיּ֣וֹם הַה֗וּא גִּדַּ֤ל יְהוָה֙ אֶת־יְהוֹשֻׁ֔עַ בְּעֵינֵ֖י כָּל־יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל וַיִּֽרְא֣וּ אֹת֔וֹ כַּאֲשֶׁ֛ר יָרְא֥וּ אֶת־מֹשֶׁ֖ה כָּל־יְמֵ֥י חַיָּֽיו׃
 See Judges.
