When you arrive in the land he swore to give your ancestors, you will have large harvests of grain, new wine, and olive oil, and great herds of cattle, sheep, and goats.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:14 - You will be blessed above all the nations of the earth. None of your men or women will be childless, and all your livestock will bear young.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:17 - Perhaps you will think to yourselves, ‘How can we ever conquer these nations that are so much more powerful than we are?’

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:18 - But don’t be afraid of them! Just remember what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all the land of Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 7:19 - Remember the great terrors the LORD your God sent against them. You saw it all with your own eyes! And remember the miraculous signs and wonders, and the strong hand and powerful arm with which he brought you out of Egypt.

NLT Footnotes
The Hebrew term used here refers to the complete consecration of things or people to the LORD, either by destroying them or by giving them as an offering; also in 7:26.
Often rendered the hornet. The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain.
