Deuteronomy 7


7:1 When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither
 thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before
 thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and
 the Canaanites, and the Perrizites, and the Hivites, and the
 Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;
7:2 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee,
 thou shalt smite them [and] utterly destroy them, thou shalt
 make no covenant with them, nor show mercy to them:
7:3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter
 thou shalt not give to his son, nor his daughter shalt thou
 take to thy son.
7:4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they
 may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled
 against you, and destroy thee suddenly.
7:5 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their
 altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves,
 and burn their graven images with fire.
7:6 For thou [art] a holy people to the LORD thy God: the LORD
 thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people to himself,
 above all people that [are] upon the face of the earth.
7:7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you,
 because ye were more in number than any people; for ye [were]
 the fewest of all people:
7:8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep
 the oath which he had sworn to your fathers, hath the LORD
 brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the
 house of bond-men, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he [is] God, the
 faithful God, who keepeth covenant and mercy with them that
 love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations:
7:10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy
 them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will
 repay him to his face.
7:11 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the
 statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to
 do them.
7:12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these
 judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God will
 keep to thee the covenant and the mercy which he swore to thy
 fathers:
7:13 And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee:
 he will also bless thy children, and the fruit of thy land, thy
 corn, and thy wine, and thy oil, the increase of thy kine, and
 the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he swore to thy
 fathers to give thee.
7:14 Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be
 male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.
7:15 And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and
 will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt (which thou
 knowest) upon thee; but will lay them upon all [them] that hate
 thee.
7:16 And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy
 God shall deliver to thee; thy eye shall have no pity upon
 them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that [will be] a
 snare to thee.
7:17 If thou shalt say in thy heart, These nations [are] more
 than I, how can I dispossess them?
7:18 Thou shalt not be afraid of them: [but] shalt well remember
 what the LORD thy God did to Pharaoh, and to all Egypt;
7:19 The great temptations which thy eyes saw, and the signs,
 and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the out-stretched
 arm, by which the LORD thy God brought thee out: so shall the
 LORD thy God do to all the people of whom thou art afraid.
7:20 Moreover, the LORD thy God will send the hornet among them,
 until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, shall
 be destroyed.
7:21 Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God
 [is] among you, a mighty God and terrible.
7:22 And the LORD thy God will drive out those nations before
 thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at
 once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.
7:23 But the LORD thy God shall deliver them to thee, and shall
 destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they are
 destroyed.
7:24 And he shall deliver their kings into thy hand, and thou
 shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man
 be able to stand before thee, until thou shalt have destroyed
 them.
7:25 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire:
 thou shalt not desire the silver or gold [that is] on them, nor
 take [it] to thee, lest thou shouldst be snared in it: for it
 [is] an abomination to the LORD thy God.
7:26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thy house,
 lest thou shouldst be a cursed thing like it: [but] thou shalt
 utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it [is]
 a cursed thing.
