Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:2 - and when the LORD your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally.[fn] Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:14 - You will be blessed more than any other people; none of your men or women will be childless, nor will any of your livestock be without young.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:15 - The LORD will keep you free from every disease. He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases you knew in Egypt, but he will inflict them on all who hate you.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:16 - You must destroy all the peoples the LORD your God gives over to you. Do not look on them with pity and do not serve their gods, for that will be a snare to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:18 - But do not be afraid of them; remember well what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:19 - You saw with your own eyes the great trials, the signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm, with which the LORD your God brought you out. The LORD your God will do the same to all the peoples you now fear.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:20 - Moreover, the LORD your God will send the hornet among them until even the survivors who hide from you have perished.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:21 - Do not be terrified by them, for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a great and awesome God.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:22 - The LORD your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little. You will not be allowed to eliminate them all at once, or the wild animals will multiply around you.
