And n I will take sickness away from the midst of you. 26 o "No one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in your land; I will p fulfill the number of your days. 27 "I will send q My fear before you, I will r cause confusion among all the people to whom you come, and will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. 28 "And s I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before you. 29 t "I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field become too numerous for you. 30 "Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land. 31 "And u I will set your 2 bounds from the Red Sea to the sea, Philistia, and from the desert to the 3 River. For I will v deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. 32 w "You shall make no 4 covenant with them, nor with their gods. 33 "They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, x it will surely be a snare to you."
