7 “When the Lord your God brings you into the land which you go to apossess, and has cast out many bnations before you, cthe Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you, 2 and when the Lord your God delivers dthem over to you, you shall conquer them and utterly destroy them. eYou shall make no covenant with them nor show mercy to them. 3 fNor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son. 4 For they will turn your sons away from following Me, to serve other gods; gso the anger of the Lord will be aroused against you and destroy you suddenly. 5 But thus you shall deal with them: you shall hdestroy their altars, and break down their sacred pillars, and cut down their 1wooden images, and burn their carved images with fire.
Heb. Asherim, Canaanite deities
