Joshua 23:13-16

Context
23:13 know for certain that the Lord our God will no longer drive out these nations from before you. They will trap and ensnare you; 1  they will be a whip that tears 2  your sides and thorns that blind 3  your eyes until you disappear 4  from this good land the Lord your God gave you.

23:14 “Look, today I am about to die. 5  You know with all your heart and being 6  that not even one of all the faithful promises the Lord your God made to you is left unfulfilled; every one was realized – not one promise is unfulfilled! 7  23:15 But in the same way every faithful promise the Lord your God made to you has been realized, 8  it is just as certain, if you disobey, that the Lord will bring on you every judgment 9  until he destroys you from this good land which the Lord your God gave you. 23:16 If you violate the covenantal laws of the Lord your God which he commanded you to keep, 10  and follow, worship, and bow down to other gods, 11  the Lord will be very angry with you and you will disappear 12  quickly from the good land which he gave to you.”
