'Nations' in the Bible

Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.

You must not follow the statutes of the nations I am driving out before you, for they did all these things, and I abhorred them.

So I said to you, "You yourselves shall take possession of their land, and I myself shall give it to you to possess it--a land flowing with milk and honey"; I [am] Yahweh your God, who {has set you apart} from the nations.

Your male and female slaves are to be from the nations around you; you may purchase male and female slaves.

And in addition, you may get, for money, servants from among the children of other nations who are living with you, and from their families which have come to birth in your land; and these will be your property.

But I will scatter you among the nations, and I will draw a sword [to chase] after you. So your land will become desolate, and your cities will become ruins.

You will perish among the nations; the land of your enemies will devour you.

For their sake I will remember the covenant with their fathers, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations to be their God; I am the Lord."
