And the Lord shall give them up before your
To ruin and destruction; the Targum of Jonathan is,
``the Word of the Lord shall deliver them up:''
that ye may do unto them according to all the commandments
which I have commanded you;
that is, utterly destroy them, make no covenant with them, enter
into no alliances nor contract any marriages with them; but
demolish their altars, cut down their groves, and break their
images in pieces; of which last Aben Ezra interprets the words; but
they are not to be restrained to that single instance; see (
7:1-5 ) .
