1 When Jehovah thy God shall bring thee to the land whither thou comest to possess it, and shall shake·​·off many nations from before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations of many, and more numerous than thou;

2 and Jehovah thy God shall give· them ·over before thee, and thou shalt smite them, dooming thou shalt·​·doom them; thou shalt not cut a covenant with them, nor be·​·gracious to them;

3 and thou shalt not make·​·marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give to his son, and his daughter thou shalt not take to thy son.

4 For they will turn·​·aside thy son from following after Me, that they may serve other gods; and the anger of Jehovah shall be·​·fierce against you, and blot· thee ·out hastily.

5 But thus you shall do to them; you shall tear·​·down their altars, and break their statues, and hew·​·down their groves, and burn·​·up their graven images with fire.

6 For thou art a holy people to Jehovah thy God; Jehovah thy God has chosen thee to be a special people to Himself, above all the peoples who are on the faces of the ground.

7 It was not on account of your multitude being more than all the peoples that Jehovah delighted in you, and chose you; for you were the fewest of all the peoples;

8 but from the love of Jehovah for you, and from His keeping the promise which He had promised to your fathers, Jehovah has brought· you ·out with a firm hand, and redeemed you from the house of servitude*, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

9 And know that Jehovah thy God, He is God, the faithful God, keeping the covenant and the mercy for them who love Him and keep His commandments for a thousand generations;

10 and repaying those who hate Him to His face, to make him perish; He will not delay for him who hates Him to His face, He will repay him.

11 And thou shalt keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee today, to do them.

12 And it shall be, if you hear these judgments, and keep and do them, then Jehovah thy God shall keep for thee the covenant and the mercy which He promised to thy fathers;

13 and He will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee; and He will bless the fruit of thy belly, and the fruit of thy ground, thy grain, and thy must*, and thine olive·​·oil, the progeny of thine oxen, and the sheep of thy flock, on the ground which He promised to thy fathers to give to thee.

14 Thou shalt be blessed above all the peoples; there shall not be sterile or barren* among you, or among your beasts.

15 And Jehovah will remove from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which· thou ·knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.

16 And thou shalt devour all the people which Jehovah thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall not spare them; neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare to thee.

17 For if thou shalt say in thy heart, These nations are more than I; how am· I ·able to dispossess them?

18 Thou shalt not fear them; remembering thou shalt remember what Jehovah thy God did to Pharaoh, and to all Egypt;

19 the great proofs which thine eyes saw, and the signs and the miracles, and the firm hand, and the stretched·​·out arm, by which Jehovah thy God brought· thee ·out; so shall Jehovah thy God do to all the peoples whose faces thou fearest.

20 And also Jehovah thy God will send the hornet among them, until they who are left, and hide themselves from thy face, perish.

21 Thou shalt not be terrified at their faces; for Jehovah thy God is among you, a great God and to be feared.

22 And Jehovah thy God will shake·​·off those nations from before thee a few by a few; thou wilt not be·​·able to consume·​·all of them hastily, lest the wild·​·animals of the field multiply upon thee.

23 But Jehovah thy God shall put them before thy face, and shall upset them with great upset, until they be blotted·​·out.

24 And He shall deliver their kings into thy hand, and thou shalt make· their name ·perish from under heaven; there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have blotted· them ·out.

25 The graven images of their gods you shall burn·​·up with fire; thou shalt not covet the silver and gold that is on them, nor take it to thyself, lest thou be snared in it; for it is an abomination to Jehovah thy God.

26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thy house, lest thou be a doomed·​·thing* like it; detesting thou shalt detest it, and abominating thou shalt abominate it; for it is a doomed·​·thing.
