The Covenant of Fruitfulness - Deuteronomy 7

When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the  land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many  nations before thee, the 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 thou; Deuteronomy 7:1 

Deuteronomy 7:2 And when the LORD thy God  shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and  utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with  them, nor shew mercy unto them: 

Deuteronomy 7:3 Neither shalt thou  make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give  unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.  

Deuteronomy 7:4 For they will turn away thy son from following me,  that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the  LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.  

Deuteronomy 7:5 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy  their altars, and break down their images, and cut down  their groves, and burn their graven images with fire. 

Deuteronomy 7:6  For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the  LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto  himself, above all people that are upon the face of the  earth. 

Deuteronomy 7:7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor  choose you, because ye were more in number than any  people; for ye were the fewest of all people: 

Deuteronomy 7:8 But  because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep  the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the  LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed  you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh  king of Egypt. 

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy  God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant  and mercy with them that love him and keep his  commandments to a thousand generations; 

Deuteronomy 7:10 And  repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them:  he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay  him to his face. 

Deuteronomy 7:11 Thou shalt therefore keep the  commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which  I command thee this day, to do them.  

Deuteronomy 7:12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to  these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy  God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which  he sware unto thy fathers: 

Deuteronomy 7:13 And he will love thee, and  bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of  thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine,  and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy  sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give  thee. 

Deuteronomy 7:14 Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there  shall not be male or female barren among you, or among  your cattle. 

Deuteronomy 7:15 And the LORD will take away from thee  all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt,  which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all  them that hate thee. 

Deuteronomy 7:16 And thou shalt consume all the  people which the LORD thy God shall deliver thee; thine  eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve  their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee. 

Deuteronomy 7:17 If  thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than  I; how can I dispossess them? 

Deuteronomy 7:18 Thou shalt not be  afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the LORD  thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt; 

Deuteronomy 7:19 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. 

Deuteronomy 7:20 Moreover the LORD thy God will send the  hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed. 

Deuteronomy 7:21 Thou shalt not  be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God is among  you, a mighty God and terrible. 

Deuteronomy 7:22 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. 

Deuteronomy 7:23 But the LORD thy God  shall deliver them unto thee, and shall destroy them with a  mighty destruction, until they be destroyed. 

Deuteronomy 7:24 And he  shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt  destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man  be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.   

Deuteronomy 7:25 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. 

Deuteronomy 7:26 Neither shalt  thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a  cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and  thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.
