1 God will defeat the nations
1 When the ch. 31:3Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, Ex. 33:2the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations ch. 4:38greater and mightier than thou;
2 And when the Lord thy God shall ch. 23:14deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and Josh. 6:17;& 8:24;& 9:24utterly destroy them; Josh. 2:14;Judg. 1:24;& 2:2thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:
3 1 Ki. 11:2;Ezra 9:2Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: ch. 6:15so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.
6 Ps. 50:5;Jer. 2:3For thou art a holy people unto the Lord thy God: Ex. 19:5;Amos 3:2;1 Pet. 2:9the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were ch. 10:22the fewest of all people:
8 But ch. 10:15because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep Luke 1:55,72,73the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, Ex. 13:3,14hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
9 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, 1 Cor. 1:9;2 Cor. 1:18;2 Thes. 3:3;2 Tim. 2:13;Heb. 11:11the faithful God, Neh. 1:5;Dan. 9:4which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
10 And Is. 59:18repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: ch. 32:35he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.
11 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
12 ch. 28:1Wherefore it shall come to pass, [b]if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee Ps. 105:8,9the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:
13 And he will John 14:21love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: ch. 28:4he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
14 Thou shalt be blessed above all people: Ex. 23:26there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.
15 And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the Ex. 15:26;ch. 28:27,60evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
16 And ver. 2thou shalt consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; ch. 19:13,21thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be Judg. 8:27a snare unto thee.
17 If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than I; how can I Num. 33:53dispossess them?
18 ch. 31:6Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well Ps. 105:5remember what the Lord thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;
19 ch. 4:34;& 29:3The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby the Lord thy God brought thee out: so shall the Lord thy God do unto all the people of whom thou art afraid.
20 Josh. 24:12Moreover the Lord thy God will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed.
21 Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the Lord thy God is Num. 16:3;Josh. 3:10among you, Neh. 9:32a mighty God and terrible.
24 And Josh. 10:24,25,42he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name Ex. 17:14from under heaven: Josh. 23:9there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.
25 The graven images of their gods Ex. 32:20;1 Chr. 14:12shall ye burn with fire: thou Josh. 7:1,21shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be Judg. 8:27;Zeph. 1:3snared therein: for it is ch. 17:1an abomination to the Lord thy God.
26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; Lev. 27:28;Josh. 6:17;& 7:1for it is a cursed thing.
