Deuteronomy 7:16 ā€” Deuteronomy 8:10

16 And you shall devour all the peoples which Jehovah your God is giving you; your eye shall not pity them, nor shall you serve their gods, for that would be a snare to you.

17 If you say in your heart, These nations are greater than I, how will I be able to dispossess them?

18 You shall not be afraid of them; you must remember what Jehovah your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt,

19 The great trials that your eyes saw, and the signs and the wonders, and the mighty hand and the outstretched arm with which Jehovah your God brought you out; so will Jehovah your God do to all the peoples whom you are afraid of.

20 Furthermore, Jehovah your God will send the hornet among them until those who are left and those who hide themselves from you are destroyed.

21 You shall not be terrified of them, for Jehovah your God is in your midst, a great and awesome God.

22 And Jehovah your God will clear away these nations from before you little by little; you shall not devour all of them immediately, lest the beasts of the field multiply against you.

23 But Jehovah your God will deliver them up before you and rout them utterly until they are destroyed.

24 And He will deliver their kings into your hand, and you shall destroy their name from under heaven; no man will be able to stand against you until you destroy them.

25 The idols of their gods you shall burn with fire; you shall not desire the silver or gold upon them, nor take it for yourself, lest you be ensnared by it; for it is an abomination to Jehovah your God.

26 And you shall not bring an abomination into your house, lest you become a cursed thing like it; you shall utterly detest it and utterly abhor it, for it is a cursed thing.


1 The whole commandment which I am commanding you today, you shall keep and do, so that you may live and multiply, and enter and possess the land which Jehovah swore to your fathers.

2 And you shall remember all the way that Jehovah your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness in order to humble you and test you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.

3 And He humbled you and let you go hungry and fed you the manna, which you had never known nor your fathers had ever known, so that He might make you know that man lives not by bread alone, but that man lives by everything that proceeds out from the mouth of Jehovah.

4 Your clothing did not wear out from upon you, nor did your foot swell these forty years.

5 Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so Jehovah your God was disciplining you;

6 Therefore keep the commandments of Jehovah your God, walking in His ways and fearing Him.

7 For Jehovah your God is bringing you to a good land, a land of waterbrooks, of springs and of fountains, flowing forth in valleys and in mountains;

8 A land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive trees with oil and of honey;

9 A land in which you will eat bread without scarcity; you will not lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron, and from whose mountains you can mine copper.

10 And you shall eat and be satisfied, and you shall bless Jehovah your God for the good land which He has given you.
