- 1 "Hear, O Israel! You are crossing over the Jordan today to go in to dispossess nations R336 greater and mightier than you, great cities fortified R337 F137 to heaven, 2 a people great and tall, the sons of the Anakim, whom you know and of whom you have heard it said, `Who R338 can stand before the sons of Anak?' 3 "Know therefore today that it R339 is the LORD your God who is crossing over before you as a R340 consuming fire. He will destroy them and He will subdue them before you, so that you R341 may drive them out and destroy them quickly, just as the LORD has spoken to you. 4 "Do R342 not say in your heart when the LORD your God has driven them out before you, F138 `Because of my righteousness the LORD has brought me in to possess this land,' but it is because R343 of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD is dispossessing them before you. 5 "It is not R344 for your righteousness or for the uprightness of your heart that you are going to possess their land, but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD your God is driving them out before you, in order to confirm the R345 oath F139 which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 6 "Know, then, it is not because of your righteousness that the LORD your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a R346 stubborn F140 people.
