"Those of illegitimate birth and their descendants for ten generations may not be included in the assembly of the LORD.

These nations did not welcome you with food and water when you came out of Egypt. Instead, they tried to hire Balaam son of Beor from Pethor in Aram-naharaim a to curse you.

You must never, as long as you live, try to help the Ammonites or the Moabites in any way.
