And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
In the manners
After the doings of the land of Egypt wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do, - And after the doings of the land of Canaan whither, I, am bringing you in, shall ye not do, And, in their statutes, shall ye not walk:
take heed to thyself lest thou be thrust after them, after they have been destroyed from before thee, - and lest thou enquire after their gods, saying - In what manner, did these nations serve their gods, that, I too, may do likewise?
Hear ye the word which Yahweh hath spoken unto you, O house of Israel: -
For all these abominations, have the men of the land done, who were before you; And so the land hath become unclean:
Not for thine own righteousness, nor for the uprightness of thine own heart, art thou going in to possess their land, - but or the lawlessness of these nations, is, Yahweh thy God driving them out from before thee, and that he may establish the word which Yahweh sware unto thy fathers, unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob.
God heard and was wroth, And greatly abhorred Israel;
And I sent off three shepherds, in one month, - for impatient was my soul with them, moreover also, their soul, felt a loathing against me.
