Yet I destroyed the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of cedars, and who was as strong as oaks; I destroyed his fruit above, and his roots beneath.
Also I brought you up out of the land of Egypt, and led you forty years in the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorite.
And I raised up some of your children to be prophets and some of your youths to be nazirites. a Is it not indeed so, O people of Israel? says the Lord.
But you made the nazirites b drink wine, and commanded the prophets, saying, "You shall not prophesy."
