12 “aWatch yourself that you make no covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are going, or it will become a snare in your midst.
14 —for ayou shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God—
15 otherwise you might make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land and they would play the harlot with their gods and asacrifice to their gods, and someone bmight invite you 1to eat of his sacrifice,
16 and ayou might take some of his daughters for your sons, and his daughters might play the harlot with their gods and cause your sons also to play the harlot with their gods.
17 “aYou shall make for yourself no molten gods.
