Bible: Josh 23:12-13
23:12 But if you ever turn away and make alliances with 1 these nations that remain near you, 2 and intermarry with them and establish friendly relations with them, 3 23:13 know for certain that the
Lord our God will no longer drive out these nations from before you. They will trap and ensnare you; 4 they will be a whip that tears 5 your sides and thorns that blind 6 your eyes until you disappear 7 from this good land the Lord your God gave you.
