Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 7:4


7:4 To serve other Gods - That is, there is manifest danger of apostacy and idolatry from such matches. Which reason doth both limit the law to such of these as are unconverted (otherwise Salmon married Rahab, #Matt 1:5|) and enlarge it to other idolatrous nations, as appears from #1Kin 11:2 Ezra 9:2 Neh 13:23|.
