The Israelites crossed the Jordan into the Promised land with specific instructions
V 51 ‘Speak to the Israelites and say to them: “When you cross the Jordan into Canaan, 52 drive out all the inhabitants of the land before you. Destroy all their carved images and their cast idols, and demolish all their high places.


Re-cap of the Israelite's journey out of Israel, interesting that Moses is credited as being the writer of this chapter ("and Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the commandment of the Lord". Some pretty shocking passages inciting acts of violence: "ye shall drive out the inhabitants of the land" and "destroy all their pictures".


Hey everyone, I am a 10 year old Christian girl who likes to rad the bible and is already by numbers 33 !


Ahaha so simple to say take the land, wicked lord stealing and fighting people over their properties.
