Thus (C)I gave them into your hand. 12 Then I (D)sent the hornet before you and it [a]drove out the two kings of the Amorites from before you, but (E)not by your sword or your bow. 13 (F)I gave you a land on which you had not labored, and cities which you had not built, and you have lived in them; you are eating of vineyards and olive groves which you did not plant.’
