1 "1When the LORD your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, and clears away many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, 2seven nations greater and stronger than you, 2 and when the LORD your God delivers them before you and you adefeat them, 3then you shall butterly destroy them. 4You shall make no covenant with them 5and show no favor to them. 3 "Furthermore, 6you shall not intermarry with them; you shall not give your cdaughters to dtheir sons, nor shall you take etheir daughters for your fsons. 4 "For gthey will turn your hsons away from ifollowing Me to serve other gods; then the anger of the LORD will be kindled against you and 7He will quickly destroy you. 5 "But thus you shall do to them: 8you shall tear down their altars, and smash their sacred pillars, and hew down their jAsherim, and burn their graven images with fire. 6 "For you are 9a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be 10a people for His kown possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the learth. 7 "11The LORD did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any of the peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples, 8 but because the LORD loved you and kept the 12oath which He swore to your forefathers, 13the LORD brought you out by a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of mslavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 9 "Know therefore that the LORD your God, 14He is God, 15the faithful God, 16who keeps nHis covenant and oHis lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who 17love Him and keep His commandments; 10 but 18repays those who hate Him to ptheir faces, to destroy qthem; He will not delay rwith him who hates Him, He will repay him to his face.
