1 These bee the woordes which Moses spake vnto all Israel, on this side Iordane in the wildernes, in the plaine ouer against the Red sea, betweene Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.
3 And it came to passe in the fourtieth yeere, in the eleuenth moneth, on the first day of the moneth, that Moses spake vnto the children of Israel, according vnto all that the Lord had giuen him in commandement vnto them:
7 Turne you, and take your iourney, and goe to the mount of the Amorites, and vnto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plaine, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the South, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and vnto Lebanon, vnto the great riuer, the riuer Euphrates.
15 So I tooke the chiefe of your tribes, wise men, and knowen, and made them heads ouer you, captaines ouer thousands, and captaines ouer hundreds, and captaines ouer fifties, and captaines ouer tennes, and officers among your tribes.
17 Ye shall not respect persons in iudgement, but you shall heare the small aswell as the great: you shall not bee afraid of the face of man, for the iudgment is Gods: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it vnto me, and I will heare it.
19 ∂ And when wee departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and terrible wildernes, which you saw by the way of the mountaine of the Amorites, as the Lord our God commanded vs: and wee came to Kadesh Barnea.
22 ∂ And ye came neere vnto mee euery one of you, and said, We will send men before vs, and they shall search vs out the land, and bring vs word againe, by what way we must goe vp, and into what cities we shall come.
28 Whither shall wee goe vp? our brethren haue discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller then we, the cities are great, and walled vp to heauen, and moreouer we haue seene the sonnes of the Anakims there.
39 Moreouer, your litle ones, which ye said should be a pray, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge betweene good and euil, they shall goe in thither; and vnto them will I giue it, and they shall possesse it.
41 Then ye answered, and said vnto mee, Wee haue sinned against the Lord, we will goe vp and fight, according to all that the Lord our God commanded vs. And when ye had girded on euery man his weapons of warre, yee were ready to goe vp into the hill.

Thatís our perception as human beings in our limitations. But God is above all and knows all. The Bible here is just telling this round, but no one knows how did those people get that land.
God knew the practices of those people, their practices were bad in Godís sovereign sight. God knew they were getting worse and worse, so He took the resolve to remove them from that land. But not before they reached unacceptable levels, Genesis 15:16.
And that is not because He liked Israel and disliked those people. But because of their misdeeds. God does not choose people; ďÖGod is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.ĒActs 10:34-35.
The proof is that Israel himself got corrupt in the course of time and ultimately suffered same consequences. Because there is no preference with God.
We judge about what we know, unfortunately we donít know all. So letís listen to God who knows everything.
God bless you.

This is so pathetic. How can God or anyone else condone a landless group going into a land already possessed? Sounds like something some landless people made up to justify pillage.

The journey of eleven days took forty years! God, help.

Wow, I love all the response here. God is so awesome, knowing and having revelation of his will and divine purpose. It's all about self surrender of all of our will to his purpose.

My question is why is there so much violence and hatred in gods commandments. Why doesn't god just come forth and wipe them out. Why doesn't he just appear himself? Doesn't make sense to me.

To summarize Deuteronomy in one sentence, Trust and obey GOD.

Deut.1 teaches us that the promise God gave in Joshua that He would give us every place the sole of feet have trodden, will only come to pass if we follow God and obey Him. No matter what hardship we come across on the journey, we must trust God and continue holding on to His word. V27 the Israelites murmured against God and this cost them the promised land. Caleb was the only one whom God said in would see the promised land V36.
