2 Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall ||possess served their gods, cupon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree: 3 And ye shall †overthrow their altars, and break dtheir pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and eye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place. 4 fYe shall not do so unto the Lord your God. 5 But gunto the place which the Lord your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come:
