God's Promises

12Why it shall come to pass, if you listen to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD your God shall keep to you the covenant and the mercy which he swore to your fathers: 13And he will love you, and bless you, and multiply you: he will also bless the fruit of your womb, and the fruit of your land, your corn, and your wine, and your oil, the increase of your cows, and the flocks of your sheep, in the land which he swore to your fathers to give you. 14You shall be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle. 15And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you know, on you; but will lay them on all them that hate you. 16And you shall consume all the people which the LORD your God shall deliver you; your eye shall have no pity on them: neither shall you serve their gods; for that will be a snare to you. 17If you shall say in your heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them? 18You shall not be afraid of them: but shall well remember what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh, and to all Egypt; 19The great temptations which your eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby the LORD your God brought you out: so shall the LORD your God do to all the people of whom you are afraid. 20Moreover the LORD your God will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from you, be destroyed. 21You shall not be affrighted at them: for the LORD your God is among you, a mighty God and terrible. 22And the LORD your God will put out those nations before you by little and little: you may not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase on you. 23But the LORD your God shall deliver them to you, and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they be destroyed. 24And he shall deliver their kings into your hand, and you shall destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before you, until you have destroyed them. 25The graven images of their gods shall you burn with fire: you shall not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it to you, lest you be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the LORD your God. 26Neither shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be a cursed thing like it: but you shall utterly detest it, and you shall utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

put out [heb] pluck off
thou mayest As the Israelites were not yet sufficiently numerous to fill the whole land occupied by these nations; and as wild and ferocious animals might be expected to multiply where the place was but thinly peopled, therefore God informs then that their extermination from before them should be gradual. Haynes says, `The approaching to Cana, at the close of the day, as we did, is at once terrifying and dangerous.
