For this cause say to the children of Israel, This is what the Lord has said: I am doing this, not because of you, O children of Israel, but because of my holy name, which you have made unclean among the nations wherever you went.

The Lord did not give you his love or take you for himself because you were more in number than any other people; for you were the smallest of the nations:
But he was their saviour because of his name, so that men might see his great power.
Not for your righteousness or because your hearts are upright are you going in to take their land; but because of the evil-doing of these nations the Lord your God is driving them out from before you, and to give effect to his oath to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name let glory be given, because of your mercy and your unchanging faith.
