Bible: Deuteronomy 7:17-24
7:17 If you think, “These nations are more numerous than I – how can I dispossess them?” 7:18 you must not fear them. You must carefully recall 1 what the
Lord your God did to Pharaoh and all Egypt, 7:19 the great judgments 2 you saw, the signs and wonders, the strength and power 3 by which he 4 brought you out – thus the Lord your God will do to all the people you fear. 7:20 Furthermore, the Lord your God will release hornets 5 among them until the very last ones who hide from you 6 perish. 7:21 You must not tremble in their presence, for the Lord your God, who is present among you, is a great and awesome God. 7:22 He, 7 the God who leads you, will expel the nations little by little. You will not be allowed to destroy them all at once lest the wild animals overrun you. 7:23 The Lord your God will give them over to you; he will throw them into a great panic 8 until they are destroyed. 7:24 He will hand over their kings to you and you will erase their very names from memory. 9 Nobody will be able to resist you until you destroy them.
