Joshua 23:12-14 Living Bible (TLB)
12 “If you don’t, and if you begin to intermarry with the nations around you, 13 then know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no longer chase those nations from your land. Instead, they will be a snare and a trap to you, a pain in your side and a thorn in your eyes, and you will disappear from this good land which the Lord your God has given you.
14 “Soon I will be going the way of all the earth—I am going to die.
“You know very well that God’s promises to you have all come true.
