Exodus 23:27-33 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

27 “I will cause the people ahead of you to feel terror[a] and throw into confusion all the nations you come to. I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you in retreat. 28 I will send the hornet[b] in front of you, and it will drive the Hivites, Canaanites, and Hittites away from you. 29 I will not drive them out ahead of you in a single year; otherwise, the land would become desolate, and wild animals would multiply against you. 30 I will drive them out little by little ahead of you until you have become numerous[c] and take possession of the land. 31 I will set your borders from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea,[d] and from the wilderness to the Euphrates River.[e] For I will place the inhabitants of the land under your control, and you will drive them out ahead of you. 32 You must not make a covenant with them or their gods. 33 They must not remain in your land, or else they will make you sin against Me. If you worship their gods, it will be a snare for you.”
