Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and inherit the land.
Yahweh your God will cast out those nations before you by little and little: you may not consume them at once, lest the animals of the field increase on you.
For it is precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little.
Therefore the word of Yahweh will be to them precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little; that they may go, fall backward, be broken, be snared, and be taken.
Wealth gained dishonestly dwindles away, but he who gathers by hand makes it grow.
