Deuteronomy 7:12-26 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
12 If you pay attention to these laws and are careful to follow them, then the LORD your God will keep his covenant of love with you, as he swore to your forefathers.1 13 He will love you and bless you2 and increase your numbers.3 He will bless the fruit of your womb,4 the crops of your land--your grain, new wine5 and oil6--the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks in the land that he swore to your forefathers to give you.7 14 You will be blessed more than any other people; none of your men or women will be childless, nor any of your livestock without young.8 15 The LORD will keep you free from every disease.9 He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases you knew in Egypt,10 but he will inflict them on all who hate you.11 16 You must destroy all the peoples the LORD your God gives over to you.12 Do not look on them with pity13 and do not serve their gods,14 for that will be a snare15 to you. 17 You may say to yourselves, "These nations are stronger than we are. How can we drive them out?16" 18 But do not be afraid17 of them; remember well what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt.18 19 You saw with your own eyes the great trials, the miraculous signs and wonders, the mighty hand19 and outstretched arm, with which the LORD your God brought you out. The LORD your God will do the same to all the peoples you now fear.20 20 Moreover, the LORD your God will send the hornet21 among them until even the survivors who hide from you have perished. 21 Do not be terrified by them, for the LORD your God, who is among you,22 is a great and awesome God.23 22 The LORD your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little.24 You will not be allowed to eliminate them all at once, or the wild animals will multiply around you. 23 But the LORD your God will deliver them over to you, throwing them into great confusion until they are destroyed.25 24 He will give their kings26 into your hand,27 and you will wipe out their names from under heaven. No one will be able to stand up against you;28 you will destroy them.29 25 The images of their gods you are to burn30 in the fire. Do not covet31 the silver and gold on them, and do not take it for yourselves, or you will be ensnared32 by it, for it is detestable33 to the LORD your God. 26 Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction.34 Utterly abhor and detest it, for it is set apart for destruction.
