Bible: Exodus 23:22-33

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 

23:24You 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.

23:27I 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. 23:29 I will not drive them out before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the wild animals 14  multiply against you. 23:30 Little by little 15  I will drive them out before you, until you become fruitful and inherit the land. 23:31 I will set 16  your boundaries from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the River, 17  for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you will drive them out before you.

23:32You must make no covenant with them or with their gods. 23:33 They must not live in your land, lest they make you sin against me, for if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare 18  to you.”
