23:22 But if you diligently obey him 1 and do all that I command, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and I will be an adversary to your adversaries. 23:23 For my angel will go before you and bring you to the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, and I will destroy them completely. 2
23:24 “You must not bow down to their gods; you must not serve them or do according to their practices. Instead you must completely overthrow them and smash their standing stones 3 to pieces. 4 23:25 You must serve 5 the Lord your God, and he 6 will bless your bread and your water, 7 and I will remove sickness from your midst. 23:26 No woman will miscarry her young 8 or be barren in your land. I will fulfill 9 the number of your days.
23:27 “I will send my terror 10 before you, and I will destroy 11 all the people whom you encounter; I will make all your enemies turn their backs 12 to you. 23:28 I will send 13 hornets before you that will drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite before you.
