5 For thou entrust not to inherit their land for thy righteousness, or for their upright heart, but for the wickedness of those nations, the Lord thy God doth cast them out before thee, and that he might perform the word which the Lord thy God sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
6 Understand therefore, that the Lord thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness: for thou art a [a]stiff-necked people.
7 ¶ Remember and forget not, how thou provokedst the Lord thy God to anger in the wilderness: [b]since the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came into this place, ye have rebelled against the Lord.
Deuteronomy 9:6Like stubborn oxen which will not endure their master’s yoke.
Deuteronomy 9:7He proveth by the length of time, that their rebellion was most great and intolerable.
