“By little and little I will driue them out from before thee, vntill thou be increased and inherit the land.”
King James Version (KJV)
27. I will send my feare before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turne their backes vnto thee. 28. And I will send hornets before thee, which shall driue out the Hiuite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before thee. 29. I will not driue them out from before thee in one yeere, lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee. 30. By little and little I will driue them out from before thee, vntill thou be increased and inherit the land. 31. And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea, euen vnto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert vnto the riuer: for I will deliuer the inhabitants of the land into your hand: and thou shalt driue them out before thee. 32. Thou shalt make no couenant with them, nor with their gods. 33. They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sinne against me: for if thou serue their gods, it will surely be a snare vnto thee.
