Warnings

1aWhen the LORD your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, and clears away many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, bseven nations greater and stronger than you, 2 and when the LORD your God delivers them before you and you Idefeat them, athen you shall IIutterly destroy them. bYou shall make no covenant with them cand show no favor to them. 3 Furthermore, ayou shall not intermarry with them; you shall not give your Idaughters to IItheir sons, nor shall you take IIItheir daughters for your IVsons. 4 For Ithey will turn your IIsons away from IIIfollowing Me to serve other gods; then the anger of the LORD will be kindled against you and aHe will quickly destroy you. 5 But thus you shall do to them: ayou shall tear down their altars, and smash their [sacred] pillars, and hew down their IAsherim, and burn their graven images with fire. 6 For you are aa holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be ba people for His Iown possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the IIearth.

So shall the LORD your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. 20 Moreover, the LORD your God will send athe hornet against them, until those who are left and hide themselves from you perish. 21 You shall not dread Ithem, for athe LORD your God is in your midst, ba great and awesome God. 22 aThe LORD your God will clear away these nations before you little by little; you will not be able to put an end to them quickly, for the Iwild beasts would grow too numerous for you. 23 aBut the LORD your God will deliver them before you, and will Ithrow them into great confusion until they are destroyed. 24 aHe will deliver their kings into your hand so that you will make their name perish from under heaven; bno man will be able to stand before you until you have destroyed them. 25 The graven images of their gods you are to aburn with fire; you shall bnot covet the silver or the gold that is on them, nor take it for yourselves, or you will be csnared by it, for it is an dabomination to the LORD your God. 26 You shall not bring an abomination into your house, and like it come under the aban; you shall utterly detest it and you shall utterly abhor it, for it is something banned.

All communion with the nations is forbidden,

1 ¶ When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; 2 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, [and] utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: 3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.

for fear of idolatry,

4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. 5 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.

for the holiness of the people,

6 For thou [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that [are] upon the face of the earth. 7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye [were] the fewest of all people: 8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

for the nature of God in his mercy and justice,

9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he [is] God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; 10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face. 11 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.

for the assuredness of victory which God will give over them.

17 If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations [are] more than I; how can I dispossess them? 18 Thou shalt not be afraid of them: [but] shalt well remember what the LORD thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt; 19 The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby the LORD thy God brought thee out: so shall the LORD thy God do unto all the people of whom thou art afraid. 20 Moreover the LORD thy God will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed. 21 Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God [is] among you, a mighty God and terrible. 22 And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee. 23 But the LORD thy God shall deliver them unto thee, and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they be destroyed. 24 And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them. 25 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold [that is] on them, nor take [it] unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it [is] an abomination to the LORD thy God. 26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: [but] thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it [is] a cursed thing.
