Laws Concerning War with Distant Enemies

20:1 When you go to war against your enemies and see chariotry 1  and troops 2  who outnumber you, do not be afraid of them, for the Lord your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt, is with you. 20:2 As you move forward for battle, the priest 3  will approach and say to the soldiers, 4  20:3 Listen, Israel! Today you are moving forward to do battle with your enemies. Do not be fainthearted. Do not fear and tremble or be terrified because of them, 20:4 for the Lord your God goes with you to fight on your behalf against your enemies to give you victory.” 5
