Bible: Deuteronomy 20:16-18

Laws Concerning War with Canaanite Nations

20:16 As for the cities of these peoples that 1  the Lord your God is going to give you as an inheritance, you must not allow a single living thing 2  to survive. 20:17 Instead you must utterly annihilate them 3 the Hittites, 4  Amorites, 5  Canaanites, 6  Perizzites, 7  Hivites, 8  and Jebusites 9 just as the Lord your God has commanded you, 20:18 so that they cannot teach you all the abhorrent ways they worship 10  their gods, causing you to sin against the Lord your God.
