And the Lord shall give them up before your face
To ruin and destruction; the Targum of Jonathan is,
``the Word of the Lord shall deliver them up:''that ye may do unto them according to all the commandments which I
have commanded you;
that is, utterly destroy them, make no covenant with them, enter into no alliances nor contract any marriages with them; but demolish their altars, cut down their groves, and break their images in pieces; of which last Aben Ezra interprets the words; but they are not to be restrained to that single instance; see ( Deuteronomy 7:1-5 ) .
