And now, behold, the children of Ammon, and Moab, and Mount

in obedience to the divine command, when it was in their power to have done it.

8 "They have lived in it, and have built You a sanctuary there for Your name, saying,
9 'Should evil come upon us, the sword, or judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before You (for Your name is in this house ) and cry to You in our distress, and You will hear and deliver us.'
10 "Now behold, the sons of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir, whom You did not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt (they turned aside from them and did not destroy them),
