Exodus 23:23

Exodus 23:23

For mine Angel shall go before thee
The same as before described:

and bring thee in unto the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite,
and the Canaanite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite;
six nations are only mentioned, though there were seven; the Girgashites are omitted, though added in the Septuagint version; and this omission of them might be, either because they were swallowed up by one or other of the other nations, particularly the Amorites, who were the most powerful; or rather, having mentioned the most and chiefest, the Lord was not careful, as Aben Ezra observes, to take notice of the least:

and I will cut them off;
from being a nation, either of them; for though there were some of them left, and dwelt about in the land, yet not as a kingdom and nation of themselves, as they had been, but became tributary to the Israelites.
