17 If thou malt fay in thine Heart, These Nations are more than I, how can I dispossess them?

18 Thou shalt not be Afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the Lord thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;

19 The great Temptations which thine Eyes saw, and the Signs, and the Wonders, and the Mighty Hand, and the stretched out Arm, whereby the Lord thy God brought thee out: so shall the Lord thy God do unto all the People of whom thou art afraid.

20 Moreover, the Lord thy God will send the Hornet among them, until they that are left and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed.

21 Thou shall not be affrighted at them: for the Lord thy God is Among you, a Mighty God, and Terrible.

Ti And the Lord thy God will put out those Nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the Beasts of the Field increase upon thee.

24 And he shall deliver their Kings into thine Hand, and thou shalt destroy their Name from under Heaven: there ftail no Man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.

25 The graven Images of their Gods shall ye burn with Fire: thou shalt not desire the Silver or Gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be, snared therein: for it is an Abomination to the Lord thy God;
