20 b "Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. 21 "Beware of Him and obey His voice; c do not provoke Him, for He will d not pardon your transgressions; for e My name is in Him.
22 "But if you indeed obey His voice and do all that I speak, then f I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.
23 g "For My Angel will go before you and h bring you in to the Amorites and the Hittites and the Perizzites and the Canaanites and the Hivites and the Jebusites; and I will 1 cut them off. 24 "You shall not i bow down to their gods, nor serve them, j nor do according to their works; k but you shall utterly overthrow them and completely break down their sacred pillars. 25 "So you shall l serve the LORD your God, and m He will bless your bread and your water. And n I will take sickness away from the midst of you. 26 o "No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will p fulfill the number of your days. 27 "I will send q My fear before you, I will r cause confusion among all the people to whom you come, and will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. 28 "And s I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before you. 29 t "I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field become too numerous for you. 30 "Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land. 31 "And u I will set your 2 bounds from the Red Sea to the sea, Philistia, and from the desert to the 3 River. For I will v deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. 32 w "You shall make no 4 covenant with them, nor with their gods. 33 "They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, x it will surely be a snare to you."New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
