51 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When you have crossed the Jordan
into the land of Canaan,
52 then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land before you, destroy all their carved figures, destroy all their images, and annihilate all their high places;
53 you shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land and dwell in it, for I have given you the
land to possess.
54 And you shall divide the land by lot as an inheritance among your families; to the larger
you shall give a larger inheritance, and to the smaller you shall give a smaller inheritance;
there everyone's inheritance shall be whatever falls to him by lot. You shall inherit
according to the tribes of your fathers.
55 But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land before you, then it shall be that those whom you let remain shall be thorns in your eyes and pricks in your sides, and they shall distress you in the land where you dwell.
56 Moreover it shall be that I will do to you as I had thought to do to them.
