Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 26 - Evening

"It is not because of your righteousness or your integrity that you are going in to take possession of their land; but on account of the wickedness of these nations, the Lord your God will drive them out before you, to accomplish what he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob."

- Deuteronomy 9:5

The Sin of the Amorites Has Become Wickedness    

A very important and relevant principle is brought into focus in Deuteronomy 9:5. The Lord does not overthrow one nation because he finds another great people or righteous culture that needs land. No, nations are overthrown “on account of the wickedness of these nations.” (Dt. 9:5)

Please note: The Lord makes it clear that the Canaanites were not being driven out because of God’s covenant with Abraham nor because this generation of Israelites where such wonderful people. No, the Canaanites are being driven out because of their own wickedness. And, because of their wickedness God will use this opportunity “to accomplish what he swore to…Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” (Dt. 9:5)

God had actually made Abraham and his family wait 600 years for the land since the Lord said in Genesis 15:13:18:

“In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.” – Genesis 15:16

In Deuteronomy 9:5 the sin of the Amorites had reached its full measure, plus forty extra years due to Israel’s rebellion. It is time for the Amorites/Canaanites to be destroyed in their fourth generation of rebellion. God will bring the fifth cycle of discipline on Canaan with the invasion of Israel and at the same time fulfill his promise to give the Land of Canaan to Abraham and his descendants.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

An inscription recording the Gymnasiarchal Law of Beroea helps set the ages for children referred to by several different Greek words. When these words are used it is sometimes hard to determine the age of the child being referred to. This inscription helps since it refers to child using these words and these ages:

  • Paides are children up to age 15
  • Epheboi are children ages 15-17
  • Veaviskoi or neoi are 18-20 years old
