Bible: Deuteronomy 7:22-26

7:22 He, 1  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 2  until they are destroyed. 7:24 He will hand over their kings to you and you will erase their very names from memory. 3  Nobody will be able to resist you until you destroy them. 7:25 You must burn the images of their gods, but do not covet the silver and gold that covers them so much that you take it for yourself and thus become ensnared by it; for it is abhorrent 4  to the Lord your God. 7:26 You must not bring any abhorrent thing into your house and thereby become an object of divine wrath 5  along with it. 6  You must absolutely detest 7  and abhor it, 8  for it is an object of divine wrath.
