Bible: Joshua 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.
