God's Angel to Lead

20Behold, I send an Angel before you, to keep you in the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. 21Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. 22But if you shall indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and an adversary to your adversaries. 23For my Angel shall go before you, and bring you in to the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off. 24You shall not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but you shall utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. 25And you shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless your bread, and your water; and I will take sickness away from the middle of you. 26There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in your land: the number of your days I will fulfill. 27I will send my fear before you, and will destroy all the people to whom you shall come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. 28And I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before you. 29I will not drive them out from before you in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against you. 30By little and little I will drive them out from before you, until you be increased, and inherit the land. 31And I will set your bounds from the Red sea even to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and you shall drive them out before you. 32You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. 33They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me: for if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.
