"I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared.
Pay attention to him, listen to what he says and do not rebel against him; because he will not forgive any wrongdoing of yours, since my name resides in him.
But if you listen to what he says and do everything I tell you, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes.
When my angel goes ahead of you and brings you to the Emori, Hitti, P'rizi, Kena'ani, Hivi and Y'vusi, I will make an end of them.
You are not to worship their gods, serve them or follow their practices; rather, you are to demolish them completely and smash their standing-stones to pieces.
"You are to serve ADONAI your God; and he will bless your food and water. I will take sickness away from among you.
In your land your women will not miscarry or be barren, and you will live out the full span of your lives.
I will send terror of me ahead of you, throwing into confusion all the people to whom you come; and I will make all your enemies turn their backs on you.
I will send hornets ahead of you to drive out the Hivi, Kena'ani and Hitti from before you.
I will not drive them out from before you in one year, which would cause the land to become desolate and the wild animals too many for you.
I will drive them out from before you gradually, until you have grown in number and can take possession of the land.
