L. M. Grant's Commentary on the Bible - Deuteronomy 7:1-26

ISRAEL SEPARATED TO GOD (vs.1-11) Again the Lord emphasizes the importance of Israel's sanctification from the nations. When they entered the land, God would give them victory over the inhabitants, as He had promised, seven nations greater and mightier than they (v.1). But on Israel's part there was to be no mercy shown to these enemies. They were to utterly destroy them (v.2). This is a picture of believers today being responsible to destroy the deception of evil spirits in opposing the... read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 7:1-26

WARNING AND EXHORTATIONS OBEDIENCE (Deuteronomy 7:0 ) What were the names of the seven nations of Canaan to be cast out for their iniquity (Deuteronomy 7:1 )? Who would cast them out, and in what manner is the supernatural character of the act emphasized? Nevertheless, what illustrates the divine use of means (Deuteronomy 7:2 )? What command is laid on the Israelites in the premises (Deuteronomy 7:2-3 )? And why (Deuteronomy 7:4 )? To what extent should their zeal be exhibited, and why... read more

Joseph Parker

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - Deuteronomy 7:1-26

Prohibitions Deuteronomy 7:0 This chapter might be so read as to give great offence. There is in it a tone of pitilessness. The whole chapter is a vengeful speech. The chapter is charged with partiality on the part of God towards one nation, as though other nations were self-created or had been fashioned by inferior deities, and were worthy of nothing but contempt and destruction. Who made the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the... read more

Robert Hawker

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - Deuteronomy 7:22-26

The gracious promise of GOD to put out Israel's enemies, by little and little, merits the very particular consideration of all GOD'S Israel now; for the battle is the same; and both the victory and glory are the LORD'S. It is truly refreshing to remark, how intimate the correspondence is between the ancient church of GOD, in the wilderness state, and the church now. Did JEHOVAH JESUS, in his covenant capacity, go before his people then; and doth he not do it now? Is it not he that drives out... read more

George Haydock

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 7:22

Thee. Three millions of people not being sufficient to cultivate the land, Exodus xxiii. 29. (Menochius) --- God could easily have destroyed those mighty nations at once; but he would not give the Israelites any occasion of boasting. (Du Hamel) --- If they never succeeded to expel them entirely out of the country, they might attribute it to their own negligence and other sins. (Haydock) read more

Matthew Henry

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible - Deuteronomy 7:12-26

12-26 We are in danger of having fellowship with the works of darkness if we take pleasure in fellowship with those who do such works. Whatever brings us into a snare, brings us under a curse. Let us be constant to our duty, and we cannot question the constancy of God's mercy. Diseases are God's servants; they go where he sends them, and do what he bids them. It is therefore good for the health of our bodies, thoroughly to mortify the sin of our souls; which is our rule of duty. Yet sin is... read more

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - Deuteronomy 7:12-26

The Extermination of the Heathen Nations Enjoined v. 12. Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep and do them, that the Lord, thy God, shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which Ha sware unto thy fathers. He would fulfill all the promises of mercy given to the patriarchs, and He would carry out the terms of the covenant with respect to both rewards and punishments. v. 13. And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee, as manifestations... read more

Lange's Commentary on the Holy Scriptures: Critical, Doctrinal and Homiletical - Deuteronomy 7:1-26

Deuteronomy 7:1-261When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations [heathen] before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater [more numerous] and mightier than thou; 2And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee, [and] thou shalt smite them and utterly destroy them,1 thou shalt make no covenant with... read more

Frederick Brotherton Meyer

F.B. Meyer's 'Through the Bible' Commentary - Deuteronomy 7:12-26

What the Lord Does for His People Deuteronomy 7:12-26 The promises to obedience are enlarged upon with touching copiousness. Love, blessing, keeping, peace, multiplication, fruit and health lie along the narrow pathway entered by the strait gate of the Cross. However forbidding its entrance, it “leadeth unto life.” May Christ secure in us this obedience which He, too, demands and achieves by His Spirit! John 14:15 . Whatever be the strength of the Amalekites and Hittites of the heart, let us... read more

G. Campbell Morgan

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - Deuteronomy 7:1-26

Continuing to deal with the responsibilities of the people as they entered the land, Moses insisted upon the absolute necessity for the maintenance of the attitude of separation to God. Stringent instructions were given in this .matter. They must not compromise with the people of the land. They must not many with them because such alliance would result in corruption of the chosen people and their straying after other gods. Moreover, they were to sweep out all the signs of false religion,... read more
