 Deuteronomy 23:3 

2"No one of illegitimate birth shall enter the assembly of the LORD; none of his descendants, even to the tenth

generation, shall enter the assembly of the LORD. 3"No Ammonite or Moabite shall enter the assembly of the

LORD; none of their descendants, even to the tenth generation, shall ever enter the assembly of the LORD, 

4because they did not meet you with food and water on the way when you came out of Egypt, and because

they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you.…

Genesis 19:36-38 – The Moabites and the Ammonites

“Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father.  The firstborn bore a son,

and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day.  As for the younger,

she also bore a son, and called his name Ben-ammi; he is the father of the sons of Ammon to this day.” Gen. 19:36-38

 In Deuteronomy 2:9 God says to Moses “Do not harass Moab or contend with them in battle, for I will

not give you any of their land for a possession, because I have given Ar to the sons of Lot for a possession.

and in

Deut. 2:19…when you approach the frontier of the sons of Ammon, do not harass them or contend with them,

for I will not give you any of the land of the sons of Ammon as a possession, because I have given it to the sons

of Lot for a possession.”

Zephaniah 2:9:

“Therefore, as I live,” declares the LORD of hosts, The God of Israel, “Surely Moab will be like Sodom And

the sons of Ammon like Gomorrah– A place possessed by nettles and salt pits, And a perpetual desolation.

The remnant of My people will plunder them And the remainder of My nation will inherit them.”

Isaiah 52 :1Wake up! Wake up!

    Zion, clothe yourself with strength.
Holy city of Jerusalem, stand up
    and put on your beautiful clothes!
    Those filthy foreigners will not enter you again.
Jerusalem, get up and shake off the dust!
Daughter Zion,you were a prisoner,
    but take the chains off your neck.

 

 

Isaiah 48:1“Family of Jacob, listen to me!

    You people call yourself ‘Israel,’
    but you are from Judah’s family.
When you take an oath, I, the Lord, the God of Israel,
    am the one whose name you use,
    but you are not honest and sincere.

“Yes, you call yourselves citizens of the holy city,[a]
    those who depend on the God of Israel.
The Lord All-Powerful is his name.

Isaiah 56: Some foreigners will choose to follow the Lord. They should not say, “The Lordwill not really accept me like the rest of his people.” A eunuch should not say, “I am only a dry piece of wood. I cannot have any children.

They should not say that because the Lord says, “Some eunuchs obey the laws about the Sabbath. They choose to do what I want, and they follow my agreement.[a] So I will put a memorial stone in my Temple for them. Their name will be remembered in my city! Yes, I will give those eunuchs something better than sons and daughters. I will give them a name that will last forever! They will not be cut off[b] from my people.

“Some foreigners have chosen to follow the Lord. They do this so that they can serve him and love his name and be his servants. They keep the Sabbath as a special day of worship, and they will continue to follow closely my agreement. So I will bring them to my holy mountain and make them happy in my house of prayer. The offerings and sacrifices they give me will please me, because my Temple will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” The LordGod said these things.

Zechariah 8: The Lord says, “I have come back to Zion, and I am living in Jerusalem. Jerusalem will be called Faithful City. The mountain of the Lord All-Powerful will be called Holy Mountain.”

Zechariah 9: 1 This is the Lord’s message against the land of Hadrach and against the city of Damascus. The tribes of Israel are not the only people who know about the Lord. Everyone looks to him for help.[a] This message is also against the city of Hamath near Damascus. And this message is against Tyre and Sidon, even though those people have been so wise and skillful. Tyre is built like a fort. The people there have collected so much silver that it is like dust, and gold is as common as clay. But the Lord will take it all. He will destroy her powerful navy and that city will be destroyed by fire!

TEV

Not only the tribes of Israel, but also the captital of Syria belong to Lord. 2 Hamath, which borders o nHardrach also belongs to him, and so the cities of Tyre and Sydon

Ezekiel 16:You must say, ‘This is what the Lord God says to Jerusalem: Look at your history. You were born in Canaan. Your father was an Amorite. Your mother was a Hittite.Jerusalem, on the day you were born, there was no one to cut your navel cord. No one put salt on you and washed you to make you clean. No one wrapped you in cloth.

46 Your older sister was Samaria. She lived to the north of you with her daughters. Your younger sister was Sodom.[h] She lived to the south of you with her daughters. 47 You did all the terrible things they did, but you also did much worse! 48 I am the Lord God. As I live, I swear that your sister Sodom and her daughters never did as many bad things as you and your daughters.

49 “Your sister Sodom and her daughters were proud. They had too much to eat and too much time on their hands, and they did not help poor, helpless people.50 Sodom and her daughters became too proud and began to do terrible things in front of me. So I punished them!

51 “And Samaria did only half as many bad things as you did. You did many more terrible things than Samaria! You have done so many more terrible things than your sisters have done. Sodom and Samaria seem good compared to you.52 So you must bear your shame. You have made your sisters look good compared to you. You have done terrible things, so you should be ashamed.

53 “I destroyed Sodom and the towns around it, and I destroyed Samaria and the towns around it. And I will destroy you too, Jerusalem. But I will build those cities again, and I will rebuild you too. 54 I will comfort you. Then you will remember the terrible things you did, and you will be ashamed. 55 So you and your sisters will be rebuilt. Sodom and the towns around her, Samaria and the towns around her, and you and the towns around you will all be rebuilt.

56 “In the past, you were proud and made fun of your sister Sodom. But you will not do that again. 57 You did that before you were punished, before your neighbors started making fun of you. The daughters of Edom[i] and Philistia are making fun of you now. 58 Now you must suffer for the terrible things you did.” This is what the Lord said.

1 Kings 11 :King Solomon loved many foreign women, including the daughter of Pharaoh and women from Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon, and the Hittites. In the past the Lord had said to the Israelites, “You must not marry people from other nations. If you do, they will cause you to follow their gods.” But Solomon fell in love with these women. He had 700 wives who were the daughters of leaders from other nations. He also had 300 slave women who were like wives to him. His wives caused him to turn away from God.

When Solomon was old, his wives caused him to follow other gods, so he did not follow the Lordcompletely as his father David did. Solomon worshiped Ashtoreth, the goddess of Sidon, and Milcom, the horrible god of the Ammonites. So Solomon did what the Lord said was wrong. He did not follow the Lordcompletely as his father David did.

 

On the mountain next to Jerusalem, Solomon built a place for worshiping Chemosh, that horrible idol of the Moabites. On the same mountain, Solomon built a place for worshiping Molech, that horrible idol of the Ammonites.Solomon did the same thing for all of his other foreign wives who burned incense and gave sacrifices to their gods.

2 Chronicles 2: 17 So Solomon counted all the foreigners living in Israel. (This was after the time when his father David counted the people.) They found 153,600 strangers in the country. 18 Solomon chose 70,000 men to carry the stones, 80,000 men to cut the stone in the mountains, and 3600 men to supervise the workers.

2 Chronicles 8: 1 It took 20 years for King Solomon to build the Lord’s Temple and the king’s palace. Then Solomon rebuilt the towns that Hiram gave him and then moved Israelites into those towns to live there.

7-8 There were many people left in the land who were not Israelites. There were Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. The Israelites had not been able to destroy them, but Solomon forced them to work for him as slaves. They are still slaves today. Solomon did not force any of the Israelites to be his slaves. They were soldiers, government officials, officers, captains, and chariot commanders and drivers. 10 There were 250 supervisors over Solomon’s projects. They supervised the men.

2 Chronicles 9:13 Every year Solomon got almost 25 tons[d] of gold. 14 In addition to the gold brought in by the traveling merchants and traders, all the kings of Arabia and the governors of the land also brought gold and silver to Solomon.

15 King Solomon made 200 large shields of hammered gold. He used about 15 pounds[e] of gold for each shield. 16 He also made 300 smaller shields of hammered gold. He used about 7 1/2 pounds[f] of gold for each shield. The king put them in the Forest-of-Lebanon House.[g]

17 King Solomon also built a large throne with ivory decorations. It was covered with pure gold. 18 There were six steps leading up to the throne. The back of the throne was round at the top. There were armrests on both sides of the throne, and there were lions in the sides of the throne under the armrests.19 There were also two lions on each of the six steps, one at each end. There was nothing like it in any other kingdom.

20 All of Solomon’s cups and glasses were made of gold. And all the dishes[h] in the building called the “Forest of Lebanon” were made from pure gold. Nothing in the palace was made from silver. There was so much gold that in Solomon’s time people did not think silver was important!

21 The king also had cargo ships that went to Tarshish to trade things with other countries. Hiram’s men were on these ships. Every three years the ships would come back with a new load of gold, silver, ivory, and apes and baboons.

22 King Solomon became greater in riches and wisdom than any other king on earth. 23 People everywhere wanted to see King Solomon. They wanted to hear the great wisdom that God had given him. 24 Every year people came to see the king, and everyone brought a gift. They brought things made from gold and silver, clothes, weapons, spices, horses, and mules.

25 Solomon had 4000 stalls to keep horses and chariots. He had 12,000 horse soldiers. Solomon built special cities for these chariots. So the chariots were kept in these cities. King Solomon also kept some of the chariots with him in Jerusalem. 26 Solomon was the king over all the kings from the Euphrates River all the way to the land of the Philistines, and to the border of Egypt. 27 King Solomon had so much silver that it was as common as rocks in Jerusalem.  

666 talents” (22,977 kg).

1 Chronicles 29:  I am making a special gift of gold and silver things for my God’s Temple. I am doing this because I really want the Temple of my God to be built. I am giving all these things to build this holy Temple. I have given 110 tons[c] of pure gold from Ophir. I have given 263 tons[d] of pure silver. The silver is for covering the walls of the buildings in the Temple. I have given gold and silver for all the things made of gold and silver. I have given gold and silver so that skilled men can make all different kinds of things for the Temple. Now, how many of you Israelites are ready to give yourselves to the Lord today?”

 These are the things they gave for God’s house: 190 tons[e] of gold; 375 tons[f] of silver; 675 tons[g] of bronze; and 3750 tons[h]of iron. People who had valuable stones gave them to the Lord’s Temple. Jehiel took care of the valuable stones. He was from the Gershon family.

1 Chronicles 21:1Satan[a] was against the Israelites. He encouraged David to count the Israelites. So David said to Joab and the leaders of the people, “Go and count all the Israelites. Count everyone in the country—from the town of Beersheba all the way to the town of Dan. Then tell me, so I will know how many people there are.”

But King David was stubborn. Joab had to do what the king said. So Joab left and went through all the country of Israel counting the people. Then he came back to Jerusalem and told David how many people there were. In Israel there were 1,100,000 men who could use a sword. And there were 470,000 men in Judah who could use a sword. Joab did not count the tribes of Levi and Benjamin because he did not like King David’s order.

Ezekiel 12:26 Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, 27 “Son of man, the people of Israel think that the visions I give you are for a time far in the future. They think you are talking about things that will happen many years from now. 28 So you must tell them this: ‘The Lord God says, I will not delay any longer. If I say something will happen, it will happen!’” This is what the Lord God said.

Genesis 6:4 In those days, and for some time after, giant Nephilites lived on the earth, for whenever the sons of God had intercourse with women, they gave birth to children who became the heroes and famous warriors of ancient times.

 

Numbers 13:3 So Moses obeyed the Lord’s command and sent out the Israelite leaders while the people were camped in the desert of Paran.

25 The men explored that country for 40 days, and then they went back to the camp. 26 The Israelites were camped near Kadesh, in the desert of Paran. The men went to Moses and Aaron and all the Israelites. They told Moses, Aaron, and all the people what they saw and showed them the fruit from the land.27 The men told Moses, “We went to the land where you sent us. It is a land filled with many good things[c]! Here is some of the fruit that grows there.28 But the people living there are very powerful. The cities are very large and strongly defended. We even saw some Anakites there.

31 But the men who had gone with him said, “We cannot fight those people! They are much stronger than we are.” 32 So those men gave a report that discouraged the people. They said, “The land we saw is full of strong people. They are strong enough to easily defeat anyone who goes there. 33 We saw the giant Nephilim people there! (The descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim.) We felt like little grasshoppers. Yes, we were like grasshoppers to them!”

Deuteronomy 2:20,21 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelled therein …

Deuteronomy 3:11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold …

1 Samuel 17:4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, …

 

2 Samuel 21:15-22 Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David …

Numbers 31 :131 The Lord spoke to Moses and said, “Moses, tell the Israelites this: ‘Go and attack the Midianites, and do to them what they did to you.’ After that Moses, you will die.

17 Now, kill all the Midianite boys, and kill all the Midianite women who have had sexual relations with a man. 18 You can let all the young girls live—but only if they never had sexual relations with any man. 19 And then, all you men who killed other people must stay outside the camp for seven days. You must stay outside the camp even if you just touched a dead body.

31 So Moses and Eleazar did what the Lord commanded Moses. 32 The soldiers had taken 675,000 sheep, 33 72,000 cattle, 34 61,000 donkeys, 35 and 32,000 women. (These are only the women who had not had sexual relations with any man.) 36 The soldiers who went to war got 337,500 sheep. 37 They gave 675 sheep to the Lord. 38 The soldiers got 36,000 cattle. They gave 72 cattle to theLord. 39 The soldiers got 30,500 donkeys. They gave 61 donkeys to the Lord.40 The soldiers got 16,000 women. They gave 32 women to the Lord. 41 Moses gave all these gifts for the Lord to Eleazar the priest, as the Lord had commanded him.

Deuteronomy 20:  12 But if the city refuses to make peace with you and fights against you, you should surround the city.13 And when the Lord your God lets you take the city, you must kill all the men in it. 14 But you may take for yourselves the women, the children, the cattle, and everything else in the city. You may use all these things. The Lord your God has given these things to you. 15 That is what you must do to all the cities that are very far from you—the cities that are not in the land where you will live.

Numbers 11:29 But Moses answered, “Are you afraid the people will think that I am not the leader now? I wish that all the Lord’s people were able to prophesy. I wish that the Lord would put his Spirit on all of them!” (Make all of them shout like prophet)

Numbers 12: Miriam and Aaron began to talk against Moses. They criticized him because he married an Ethiopian[a] woman. They said to themselves, “Moses is not the only one the Lord has used to speak to the people. He has also spoken through us!”

The Lord heard this. (Moses was a very humble man. He was more humble than any other man on earth.) So suddenly, the Lord came and spoke to Moses, Aaron, and Miriam. He said, “You three, come to the Meeting Tent, now!”

So Moses, Aaron, and Miriam went to the Tent. The Lord came down in the tall cloud and stood at the entrance to the Tent. He called out, “Aaron and Miriam!” They went to him. God said, “Listen to me! You will have prophets. I, theLord, will let them learn about me through visions. I will speak to them in dreams. But Moses is not like that. He is my faithful servant—I trust him with everyone in my house. When I speak to him, I talk face to face with him. I don’t use stories with hidden meanings—I show him clearly what I want him to know. And Moses can look at the very image of the Lord. So why were you brave enough to speak against my servant Moses?”

The Lord was very angry with them, and he left them. 10 The cloud rose from the Tent. Aaron turned and looked at Miriam. Her skin was white like snow—she had a terrible skin disease!

11 Then Aaron said to Moses, “Please, sir, forgive us for the foolish sin that we did. 12 Don’t let her lose her skin like a baby who is born dead.” (Sometimes a baby will be born like that, with half of its skin eaten away.)

13 So Moses prayed to the Lord, “God, please heal her from this sickness!”

14 The Lord answered Moses, “If her father spit in her face, she would be shamed for seven days. So put her outside the camp for seven days. After that she can come back into the camp.”

15 So they took Miriam outside the camp for seven days. And the people did not move from that place until she was brought in again. 16 After that the people left Hazeroth and traveled to the desert of Paran where they set up camp.

Exodus 1: This king said to his people, “Look at the Israelites. There are too many of them, and they are stronger than we are! 10 We must make plans to stop them from growing stronger. If there is a war, they might join our enemies, defeat us, and escape from the land!”

 

15 There were two Hebrew[a] nurses who helped the Israelite women give birth. They were named Shiphrah and Puah. The king of Egypt said to the nurses,16 “You will continue to help the Hebrew women give birth to their children. If a girl baby is born, let the baby live. But if the baby is a boy, you must kill him!”

17 But the nurses trusted[b] God, so they did not obey the king’s command. They let all the baby boys live.

18 The king of Egypt called for the nurses and asked them, “Why did you do this? Why did you let the baby boys live?”

19 The nurses said to the king, “The Hebrew women are much stronger than the Egyptian women. They give birth to their babies before we can go to help them.” 20-21 The nurses trusted God, so he was good to them and allowed them to have their own families.

 

The Hebrews continued to have more children, and they became very strong.22 So Pharaoh gave this command to his own people: “If the Hebrew women give birth to a baby girl, let it live. But if they have a baby boy, you must throw it into the Nile River.”

Genesis 26: 26 Now there was a famine in the land—besides the previous famine in Abraham’s time—and Isaac went to Abimelek king of the Philistines in Gerar.The Lord appeared to Isaac and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live. Stay   in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you. For to you and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham. I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give them all these lands, and through your offspring[a] all nations on earth will be blessed,[b]because Abraham obeyed me and did everything I required of him, keeping my commands, my decrees and my instructions. So Isaac stayed in Gerar.

When the men of that place asked him about his wife, he said, “She is my sister,” because he was afraid to say, “She is my wife.” He thought, “The men of this place might kill me on account of Rebekah, because she is beautiful.”

When Isaac had been there a long time, Abimelek king of the Philistineslooked down from a window and saw Isaac caressing his wife Rebekah. So Abimelek summoned Isaac and said, “She is really your wife! Why did you say, ‘She is my sister’?

Isaac answered him, “Because I thought I might lose my life on account of her.”

10 Then Abimelek said, “What is this you have done to us? One of the men might well have slept with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us.”

11 So Abimelek gave orders to all the people: “Anyone who harms this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.”

 

 Genesis 12:Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to live there for a while because the famine was severe. 11 As he was about to enter Egypt, he said to his wife Sarai, “I know what a beautiful woman you are.12 When the Egyptians see you, they will say, ‘This is his wife.’ Then they will kill me but will let you live. 13 Say you are my sister, so that I will be treated well for your sake and my life will be spared because of you.”

14 When Abram came to Egypt, the Egyptians saw that Sarai was a very beautiful woman. 15 And when Pharaoh’s officials saw her, they praised her to Pharaoh, and she was taken into his palace. 16 He treated Abram well for her sake, and Abram acquired sheep and cattle, male and female donkeys, male and female servants, and camels.

 

17 But the Lord inflicted serious diseases on Pharaoh and his household because of Abram’s wife Sarai. 18 So Pharaoh summoned Abram. “What have you done to me?” he said. “Why didn’t you tell me she was your wife? 19 Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her to be my wife? Now then, here is your wife. Take her and go!” 20 Then Pharaoh gave orders about Abram to his men, and they sent him on his way, with his wife and everything he had.

 

Abraham and Abimelek

Genesis 20: 1Now Abraham moved on from there into the region of the Negev and lived between Kadesh and Shur. For a while he stayed in Gerar, and there Abraham said of his wife Sarah, “She is my sister.” Then Abimelek king of Gerar sent for Sarah and took her.

But God came to Abimelek in a dream one night and said to him, “You are as good as dead because of the woman you have taken; she is a married woman.”

Now Abimelek had not gone near her, so he said, “Lord, will you destroy an innocent nation? Did he not say to me, ‘She is my sister,’ and didn’t she also say, ‘He is my brother’? I have done this with a clear conscience and clean hands.

Then God said to him in the dream, “Yes, I know you did this with a clear conscience, and so I have kept you from sinning against me. That is why I did not let you touch her. Now return the man’s wife, for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you will live. But if you do not return her, you may be sure that you and all who belong to you will die.”

Early the next morning Abimelek summoned all his officials, and when he told them all that had happened, they were very much afraid. Then Abimelek called Abraham in and said, “What have you done to us? How have I wronged you that you have brought such great guilt upon me and my kingdom? You have done things to me that should never be done. 10 And Abimelek asked Abraham, “What was your reason for doing this?”

11 Abraham replied, “I said to myself, ‘There is surely no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.’ 12 Besides, she really is my sister, the daughter of my father though not of my mother; and she became my wife. 13 And when God had me wander from my father’s household, I said to her, ‘This is how you can show your love to me: Everywhere we go, say of me, “He is my brother.”’”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerar

Gerar - meaning "lodging-place" – was a Philistine town and district in what is today south central Israel, mentioned in the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible.

 Archaeological evidence points to the town having come into existence with the arrival of the Philistines at around 1200 BC and having been little more than a village until 800-700 BC.

 

In 2 Chronicles 14:12-15, Gerar and its surrounding towns figure in the account of King Asa's defeat of Zerah's vast Cu****e forces

 of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21

 Amorites, Canaanites, Girga****es and Jebusites.”

Deuteronomy 20: 16 However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive

anything that breathes. 17 Completely destroy[a]them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and

Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you.

Genesis 46: 26 All those who went to Egypt with Jacob—those who were his direct descendants, not counting his sons’ wives—numbered sixty-six persons. 27 With the two sons[f] who had been born to Joseph in Egypt, the members of Jacob’s family, which went to Egypt, were seventy[g] in all.

Genesis 50: 

The Death of Joseph

22 Joseph stayed in Egypt, along with all his father’s family. He lived a hundred and ten years 23 and saw the third generation of Ephraim’s children. Also the children of Makir son of Manasseh were placed at birth on Joseph’s knees.

 

Joshua 17: his was the allotment for the tribe of Manasseh as Joseph’s firstborn, that is, for Makir, Manasseh’s firstborn. Makir

was the ancestor of the Gileadites, who had received Gilead and Bashan because the Makirites were great soldiers.So this allotment

was for the rest of the people of Manasseh—the clans of Abiezer, Helek, Asriel, Shechem, Hepher and Shemida. These are the other

male descendants of Manasseh son of Joseph by their clans.

2 Chronicles 12:2 During the fifth year that Rehoboam was king, Shishak king of Egypt came to attack Jerusalem. This happened because Rehoboam and the people of Judah rebelled against the Lord. Shishak had 1200 chariots, 60,000 horse riders, and an army that no one could count. In Shishak’s large army there were Libyan soldiers, Sukkite soldiers, and Ethiopian soldiers. Shishak defeated the strong cities of Judah. Then Shishak brought his army to Jerusalem.

Shishak took the treasures from the Lord’s Temple and from the king’s palace. He also took the gold shields that Solomon had made. 10 King Rehoboam made more shields to put in their places, but they were made from bronze. He gave them to the guards on duty at the palace gates. 11 Every time the king went to the Lord’s Temple, the guards took out the shields and went with him. After they were finished, they put the shields back on the wall in the guardroom.

1 Kings 14:25 25 In the fifth year that Rehoboam was king, King Shishak of Egypt came to attack Jerusalem. 26 He took the treasures from the Lord’s Temple and from the king’s palace. He even took the gold shields that David had taken from the officers of King Hadadezer of Aram and put on the walls of Jerusalem.

Jewish Encyclopedia, “From the point of view of the history of culture these episodes are very instructive.

But it is not very probable that Abraham would have run the risk twice. Moreover, a similar incident is

reported in regard to Isaac and Rebecca (Genesis 34:6-11). This recurrence indicates that none of the

accounts is to be accepted as historical; all three are variations of a theme common to the popular oral

histories of the Patriarchs. That women were married in the way here supposed is not to be doubted.

The purpose of the story is to extol the heroines as most beautiful and show that the Patriarchs were

under the special protection of the Deity.”

Acts 7:“So Abraham left the country of Chaldea.[b] He went to live in Haran. After his father died, God sent him to

this place, where you live now. But God did not give Abraham any of this land, not even a foot of it. But God promised

that in the future he would give Abraham this land for himself and for his children.

Deuteronomy 7 : When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possessand drives out before you many nations—the Hittites, Girga****es, Amorites,Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you— and when the Lord your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally.[a] Make no treatywith them, and show them no mercy. Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons,

 This is what you are to do to them: Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones, cut down their Asherah poles[b] and burn their idols in the fire.

 16 You must destroy all the peoples the Lordyour God gives over to you. Do not look on them with pity and do not serve their gods, for that will be a snare to you.

 

17 You may say to yourselves, “These nations are stronger than we are. How can we drive them out?

Deuteronomy 2: 32 When Sihon and all his army came out to meet us in battle at Jahaz, 33 theLord our God delivered him over to us and we struck him down, together with his sons and his whole army. 34 At that time we took all his towns and completely destroyed[c] them—men, women and children. We left no survivors.35 But the livestock and the plunder from the towns we had captured we carried off for ourselves. 36 From Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Gorge, and from the town in the gorge, even as far as Gilead, not one town was too strong for us. The Lord our God gave us all of them. 37 But in accordance with the command of the Lord our God, you did not encroach on any of the land of the Ammonites,neither the land along the course of the Jabbok nor that around the towns in the hills.

Numbers 36: Then at the Lord’s command Moses gave this order to the Israelites: “What the tribe of the descendants of Joseph is saying is right. This is what the Lordcommands for Zelophehad’s daughters: They may marry anyone they please as long as they marry within their father’s tribal clan. No inheritance in Israel is to pass from one tribe to another, for every Israelite shall keep the tribal inheritance of their ancestors. Every daughter who inherits land in any Israelite tribe must marry someone in her father’s tribal clan, so that every Israelite will possess the inheritance of their ancestors. No inheritance may pass from one tribe to another, for each Israelite tribe is to keep the land it inherits.”

Numbers 26:   “Take a census of the whole Israelite community by families—all those twenty years old or more who are able to serve in the army of Israel.”

51 The total number of the men of Israel was 601,730.

62 All the male Levites a month old or more numbered 23,000. 

Numbers 25: 1While Israel was staying in ****tim, the men began to indulge in sexual immorality with Moabite women, who invited them to the sacrifices to their gods. The people ate the sacrificial meal and bowed down before these gods.So Israel yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor. And the Lord’s anger burned against them.

The Lord said to Moses, “Take all the leaders of these people, kill them and expose them in broad daylight before the Lord, so that the Lord’s fierce anger may turn away from Israel.”

So Moses said to Israel’s judges, “Each of you must put to death those of your people who have yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor.”

Then an Israelite man brought into the camp a Midianite woman right before the eyes of Moses and the whole assembly of Israel while they were weeping at the entrance to the tent of meeting. When Phinehas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, the priest, saw this, he left the assembly, took a spear in his hand and followed the Israelite into the tent. He drove the spear into both of them, right through the Israelite man and into the woman’s stomach. Then the plague against the Israelites was stopped; but those who died in the plague numbered 24,000.
