1 Kings 9:20

9:20 the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites. When Israel entered the land of Canaan, they were to destroy completely the nations who were living there (Deut. 7:1; 20:17; Josh. 3:10; 9:1). The Israelites did not do this in any systematic fashion (Josh. 16:10; Judg. 1–2; 3:5), and Solomon’s policy was to conscript the descendants of these peoples permanently (v. 21).
