WHY THE LOSS OF LAND HOME ETC
Beware that you FORGET NOT
THE ETERNAL YOUR GOD. Speak not in your heart after the Lord your God has cast out people, nations from before you,
SAYING For my righteousness the Eternal has brought me to possess THIS LAND:
But for the WICKNESS OF THESE nations the Eternal does drive them out. And you say in your heart
MY POWER AND MIGHT HAS GOTTEN ME THIS WEALTH AND ALL THINGS.
Deuteronomy 8:7 -- 20, 9:3 --27. Psalm 44:1--8.
