King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
9 Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath. 9 "I destroyed the Amorite before them, though he was tall as the cedars and strong as the oaks. I destroyed his fruit above and his roots below.
10 Also I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and led you forty years through the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorite. 10 "I brought you up out of Egypt, and I led you forty years in the desert to give you the land of the Amorites.
11 And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith the LORD. 11 I also raised up prophets from among your sons and Nazirites from among your young men. Is this not true, people of Israel?" declares the LORD.
12 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink ; and commanded the prophets, saying , Prophesy not. 12 "But you made the Nazirites drink wine and commanded the prophets not to prophesy.
