Judges 3:5

Judges 3:5

And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites
As if they had been only sojourners with them, and not conquerors of them; and dwelt by sufferance, and not as proprietors and owners; such were their sloth and indolence, and such the advantage the inhabitants of the land got over them through it, and through their compliances with them; and this was the case not only of one sort of them, the Canaanites, but of the rest:

the Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and
Jebusites;
who all had cities in the several parts of the land, with whom the children of Israel were mixed, and with whom they were permitted to dwell.
