Judges 2:3; Joshua 23:13

So now I say, nI will not drive them out before you, but they shall become othorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare to you.


13 know for certain that xthe Lord your God will no longer drive out these nations before you, ybut they shall be a snare and a trap for you, a whip on your sides and thorns in your eyes, until you perish from off this good ground that the Lord your God has given you.
