Yet destroyed I the Amoritebefore them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.
Also I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and led you fortyyears through the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorite.11
And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel?saith the LORD.12
But ye gave the Nazariteswine to drink ; and commanded the prophets,saying , Prophesy not.
