Deuteronomy 7:2

Context
7:2 and he 1  delivers them over to you and you attack them, you must utterly annihilate 2  them. Make no treaty 3  with them and show them no mercy!

Deuteronomy 7:23

Context
7:23 The Lord your God will give them over to you; he will throw them into a great panic 4  until they are destroyed.

1 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons to avoid redundancy.

2 tn In the Hebrew text the infinitive absolute before the finite verb emphasizes the statement. The imperfect has an obligatory nuance here. Cf. ASV “shalt (must NRSV) utterly destroy them”; CEV “must destroy them without mercy.”

3 tn Heb “covenant” (so NASB, NRSV); TEV “alliance.”

4 tn Heb “he will confuse them (with) great confusion.” The verb used here means “shake, stir up” (see Ruth 1:19; 1 Sam 4:5; 1 Kgs 1:45; Ps 55:2); the accompanying cognate noun refers to confusion, unrest, havoc, or panic (1 Sam 5:9, 11; 14:20; 2 Chr 15:5; Prov 15:16; Isa 22:5; Ezek 7:7; 22:5; Amos 3:9; Zech 14:13).
