“That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they haue done vnto their gods, so should ye sinne against the Lord your God.”

King James Version (KJV)

Deuteronomy 20:18

15. Thus shalt thou doe vnto all the cities which are very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations. 16. But of the cities of these people which the Lord thy God doth giue thee for an inheritance, thou shalt saue aliue nothing that breatheth: 17. But thou shalt vtterly destroy them, namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hiuites, and the Iebusites, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee: 18. That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they haue done vnto their gods, so should ye sinne against the Lord your God. 19. ¶ When thou shalt besiege a citie a long time, in making warre against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees thereof, by forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eate of them, and thou shalt not cut them downe ( for the tree of the field is mans life) to employ them in the siege. 20. Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for meate, thou shalt destroy, and cut them downe, and thou shalt build bulwarkes against the city that maketh warre with thee, vntil it be subdued.
